Wip Wednesday – Afghan Blocks

I’ve been really getting stuck into Dedri Uys’ 2014 Block CAL over the past week or so.

Crochet Pattern Testers Wanted!

I have finally written up an actual crochet pattern (begone, procrastination and doubt!!) and I would like to release my firstborn into the world as soon as possible 😀  However, I’d really like a couple of lovely fellow hookers to test it first. It’s a nine round block called ‘Winter Sun’. I’m thinking intermediate level […]

Granny Squares are the New Black!

This past week it’s been all about squares around here. Maybe my crochet subconscious is getting excited about International Granny Square Day next month? 😁 First up, I returned to the 2014 Look at What I Made Block a Week CAL, which I started way back in 2015. After seven blocks I lost momentum and as […]
