I mentioned in my last post about crochet that I'd started another blanket from the yarn I received from Christmas but not everything went as smoothly as planned. First off I'm doing a crochet entrelac blanket vaguely using this pattern off ravelry. I chained a different number of stitches, am doing a different number of… Continue reading A stumbling of Blankets
At the start of the year I wrote a post about my goals for the year. All of them. From my craft goals, to blogging, to reading, to Spanish, to my etsy shop. All of the things I planned to do this year. You can check it out here if you want to but I'm… Continue reading 2017 Goals – How did I do?
I bought some lovely new yarn last week. I felt like I deserved it and, after years of trying to work through my stash, I think my will power is finally dying. In my defence I needed some 4 ply yarn for the thing I wanted to make and I didn't have any of that.… Continue reading Christmassy Crochet – Wrist Warmers
Last week I told your about my habit of starting new projects while I'm at my busiest and my failed attempt at knitting socks. Well this week I'll show you what the other projects I mentioned were.

I did mean to take it out and get the border done quicker, honest, but life got a bit in the… Continue reading Tunisian Crochet Blanket – TA DA!
I mentioned in the last post that I had some craft time to spare since finishing my blanket squares and like I normally do, I have greatly over estimated. The problem I have is that as soon as I allow myself to think, 'hmmm, what shall I do next?' my brain inundates me with a… Continue reading Craft projects galore
I've had a bit of a busy week. I haven't been able to post anything here for over a week and a half but it definitely feels longer than that. I've got lots of posts planned, I just haven't been well enough to get on my laptop. But I'm here now, so I'll start by giving you… Continue reading My week: an update
From Jan 2014, I have been spending most of what little crafting energy I have on making squares for a blanket. Now, I'm the kind of crafter that starts something and then thinks ooooh look at that, and puts it away in a draw somewhere. So, i'm honestly not sure what possessed me to think… Continue reading Tunisian Crochet Squares Blanket
