Accidental Kids Crochet Cardi

This morning I unearthed a shrug I started way back in May and settled happily back into finishing the front bodice and trim. I used Caron Cakes in Rainbow Sprinkles with a 6mm hook. The pattern is by ‘Double Stitch Twins’ Erika and Monica Simmons in their book Double Stitch: Designs for the Crochet Fashionista. I’d […]

Are you Feeling Lost in Time?

I’m feeling it! 😁 Lost in Time is a recently released customisable shawl pattern by Johanna Lindahl of Mijo Crochet. You can add it to your Ravelry queue here or go directly to the pattern here. I kept seeing it over and over again on Instagram and when I was gifted some gorgeous Italian wool last month, this […]

Finished Project Friday – Beanie for Brain Cancer 

This afternoon I finished my very first beanie! I used a simple and satisfying pattern that I found here on Ravelry. It’s called Jules’ Slouch Hat and it is entirely hdc (US) , which is my favourite stitch. I don’t know why, I just find something soothing about it, yarn over and loop up, then simple slide […]

Wip Wednesday – Sophie, Willow & a Beanie

Corner to Corner Crochet Bag

I am finding being a mum somewhat challenging at present and am intensely grateful for my chosen forms of therapy: running – my half marathon training is on track – and of course, crochet 🙂 My girls are almost five and almost seven, and my joyous relief at being beyond the baby and toddler years […]

Rainy Day Crochet

Rainy day chaos reigns this Saturday afternoon.  I come to you from inside the abandoned cubby house, hopeful that nobody will join me, and grateful I can’t see the mess out there from in here!  However, a bit of mess is not the end of the world and a family pajama day never hurt anyone […]

Green Tea and Simple Joys

I used to guzzle coffee and hurtle headlong through my days as a stay at home mum, checking things off my list, always thinking ahead to completing the next task or anticipating the next family need.  Thankfully, I’ve learned not too late in the game that slower is better, and it all still gets done […]

Wip Wednesday – Block Blanket & Fitted Shrug 

Sophie has taken a back seat this week as I move further forward with my blanket – also because the next round involves popcorns, which I need to revisit, especially when they’re to be worked in fingering with a 3mm! Evenings are not the right time for new detail work – hopefully tomorrow when I have […]

Finished Project Friday – Infinity Scarf & Mandala 

It was Mother’s Day on Sunday and Tamara at Moogly offered a pattern discount coupon for her newsletter subscribers. I immediately went over to her Ravelry store and bought a few, including the Melting Snow Infinity Scarf. It’s a lovely repeating pattern that’s so soothing to hook once you get going. I started it that sunny Autumn afternoon and […]

Finished Project Friday – Movie Night Cocoon Cardi

I’ll be brief, as this evening I started Sophie’s Garden and I want to get back to it immediately! Already frogged and only on Part 1 ahhh but, more on that another time. Suffice to say, it’s proving utterly enthralling and addictive already! Love it! Back to a long time wip that’s finally finished. I started my […]
