Pic ‘n mix crochet blanket

I started this blanket in January. It can be such a dreary and difficult month! I also needed to keep myself calm and happy during exam season. They were my first exams in over ten years so I was a bit nervous. The relatively straightforward and repetetive nature of the stripes, combined with some Continue reading

Knitting for Babies

Hi all, A few of my friends had babies towards the end of last year, and they are now approaching between 6 and 9 months old. There were 2 boys and two girls who I had been knitting for.

Crochet Tea Light Holders

Crochet Tea Light Holders

So I was flicking through a Simply Crochet Magazine when these caught my eye! In the magazine, they were filled with flowers, but I thought tea lights would look great!

I have a few friends who have had or are having babies in the very near future and I have been knitting for them for a while. I visited the first of the newborns this morning.

Train Crochet – Oatmeal Bunny

Hi all I apologise for leaving it so long before updating my blog. As you may or may not already know I have recently started a new job commuting to London every day.

Coach Crochet: A cute giraffe

Coach Crochet: A cute giraffe

A few weeks ago I undertook a 7 hour coach journey to Leeds to visit family. I decided to take crochet rather than knitting with me so that I wouldn't upset fellow passengers. It's also easier to fix if you drop any stitches. I found this super cute giraffe pattern available for free Continue reading
