Red and yellow ….

Some colours are really difficult to photograph with the iPhone. There is no blue or violet! It will all become clear in time. Enjoy your New Year if you are celebrating – if not – sleep well! 😉  I’m not sure what I’ll be doing….. but it will probably involve a bottle of red. Happy…

Ready for the New Year

All of a sudden, very unexpectedly, I have a new project. It will be another corner to corner throw, and may run alongside another.   It already has a name. Blanket of Fire. Blog posts aren’t showing on Ravelry for some reason. You will find it here.

Finished!

I won’t ask for an accolade! However, it is finished and in time for Christmas. I have hated almost every moment of this throw – I have hated almost every moment of this throw – even thought the colour is stunning and the finished object looks lovely. I gave you a hint that I wasn’t…

Patchwork – but not as you know it!

Orders placed!

One of our grand-daughters is five years old. She is desperate to learn to knit – and has caught on really quickly. However, she has been watching me crochet, and although she hasn’t yet asked how to do it she has loved watching the change of colours. She often helps me choose threads to put…

Giveaway and more
