I am finally on the last few border rounds of my Granny Stripe Blanket!
This week it has been unusually warm and springlike in my part of the UK, and the sunshine has enabled me to take some more photos of some of my spring designs.
My versatile Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern has always been popular, but I wanted to make it easier to visualise as a Spring Ornament Crochet Pattern too, so I’ve made some new models.
I’ve been cheerfully darning and repairing lots of items this week. An ex-colleague of Mr Conkers, remembering the visible mending I’d done on one of his jumpers, asked if I could repair some woollens after an attack of clothes moths.
I thought I’d just share some details about a personal crochet project I finished back in the autumn, but didn’t share because it was a Christmas present. I made this pretty, light and lacy crochet scarf in a gorgeous variegated laceweight yarn.
For some time I’ve been trying to work out the best way to offer gift-wrapping in the Little Conkers Etsy shop. Combined with the ability to send items directly to the recipient, without pricing appearing in the package – services which I already offer – it’s something a lot of customers appreciate, especially at busy times of the year.
