Crochet Cowl Finish

I have a finish! My camel stitch cowl using one Caron cake. Ta Da! One Caron cake = one snug double wrap cowl So obviously, as I mentioned it's a caron cake which is aran yarn.

Life Continues

There are a lot of smaller things going on right now. I might have had an update on my quilt to post if I hadn't been spending most of my time working on a super secret project for my friends birthday next month.

Crafty Update

I've been doing a lot of bitty things craft wise recently. So thought I'd do a post to update my progress on all of them.

Loom Knitting

Attempt 1 at using a knitting Loom

I got a load of Knitting Looms as a Christmas present this year but only managed to use them for the first time this last week. I had to recover from Christmas for example but also, I knew that if I started another project before I finished the squares to my blanket I would never… Continue reading Attempt 1 at using a knitting Loom

Tunisian Crochet Squares Blanket

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
