Hooked On Quilted Crochet

I am definitely hooked on this book! Hooked On Quilted Crochet had caught my eye a few months ago. When I got the opportunity to get a copy to review I jumped at it. I would have to say that it has lived up to my expectations. As the name very cleverly suggests, this book… Continue reading Hooked On Quilted Crochet

My First Dishcloth

I have finished my first dishcloth. It was supposed to just be a trial run, but it has turned out really well. I used one of the patterns I found on Ravelry, a crochet one called “Spread the Dishcloth Joy”. The pattern is simple and quick to complete. It has a slightly rough texture which… Continue reading My First Dishcloth

The Last Pair

The last pair of fingerless mitts is finished. Actually, I finished sewing them up on Tuesday night and now it is Saturday afternoon! Time is just flying by at the moment. The colour is a bit washed out in this photo. They are quite a bright blue with a fleck in them. I had a… Continue reading The Last Pair

Neonatal Knitting Delivered

My neonatal knitting was delivered this week. I took the two singlets and a little grey cardigan around on Wednesday night.

I was very happy to get these garments finished on time, but… Continue reading Neonatal Knitting Delivered

These… Continue reading Holiday Ornaments Galore

Good Intentions

I was so full of good intentions for the school holidays. However, not only have those two weeks gone by, but it is now Saturday afternoon following the first week back at school! To be fair, I did actually get a lot done. The problem is that I didn’t spend much time at all catching… Continue reading Good Intentions

Hokitika Set Is Finished

My Hokitika set is finished! Actually, I finished it on Saturday but have only got around to taking photos this afternoon (Monday). I am really pleased with how it has all turned out, but the mittens followed the same construction path as the hat. The pattern I used for the fingerless mittens was a plain… Continue reading Hokitika Set Is Finished

Hokitika Hat Has Been Finished – Twice!

I’ve made a start on my son’s birthday present and the Hokitika hat has been finished – twice! In fact, it was actually started twice and finished twice. So, let me explain. I had a hat pattern sorted out for the Aran wool I mentioned in “So – There Was A Wool Sale”. After starting… Continue reading Hokitika Hat Has Been Finished – Twice!

Now that I have had a chance to have a better look at it I am super excited! You can see from the… Continue reading Mini Cross Stitch Ornaments
