Happy New Year! It’s been a while so I hope you’re all well. The last couple of months of 2015 were very busy in the PatternPiper House so although there was plenty of crochet happening. There wasn’t much opportunity to actually sit down and share it with you. But hey, I’m here now and really wanted to show you this awesome blanket! Continue reading
I’ve grown ever so slightly addicted with crochet shawls. Well, one shawl in particular – and making it over and over again!
I made this blanket in the summer for a friend whose sister was having a baby.
So, like I said previously, I’m becoming a little addicted to making Crochet tops. Particularly, super easy, quick to make ones.
I don’t claim to be any sort of designer, but I really appreciate a pattern that allows me to make something simple, quickly (I get disheartened if it takes too long) and enables me to say “thanks, I made it myself” if complimented on it.
To top it all off, and this is actually quite a big deal, The Mr has even commented that “they actually look alright!” Previously, the thought of me making and wearing crochet clothes would have caused a screwed up, disapproving look to appear on his face.
Here’s the start of one of the tops I made last week (yes, I made more than one!)
Made a dress! Isn’t it cute?!
A few weeks ago I was really lucky to have won a giveaway by Lemonade Yarns over on the Lemonade Yarns Facebook Page, where Emma, the very lovely lady behind Lemonade Yarns, was celebrating reaching 1000 likes – Yay!
My prize was the Stylecraft Hexagon Star Throw Pattern, all of the Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK needed to make the throw and a Clover Amour 4mm Crochet Hook! How Lucky am I? Very! That’s how lucky I am!
