On Its Way! (Finally Finished)

I finally finished the navy jacket (see “Almost Done!”) and got it posted off today. It should have been sent by Monday (yesterday) so I sent it courier post to make sure it gets there in time.

My Crocheted Knockers

My recent post about “Knitted Knockers” mentioned that there was a crochet pattern available as well as the knitting patterns. A couple of weeks ago I went away for a few days, and I decided to trial the crocheted knockers pattern. The materials required for crochet are slightly more portable than those required for knitting.… Continue reading My Crocheted Knockers
