This has been the most enjoyable crochet project I completed in some time! My scrap yarn crochet blanket has been perfect, stress free relaxation at every stage, and an end product that gives the family pleasure every day.Read More
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.Read More
Here is the Little Conkers Eco-Friendly Pre-Christmas Surprise Craft Coffer! (I may need to work on the name)
Surprise craft kits, delivered to your door, or to someone you love, for a sustainable, creative, crochet treat in the run-up to the festive season.
The organic cotton yarn that I use for… well, everything has been discontinued, so I’ve spent the last few weeks working out what this means for my offering.
The yarn I use is Twilley’s Freedom Sincere organic cotton DK, and it is top quality and totally reliable (thoroughly consistent dye lots, no knots, always true to gage). It gives the smooth finish perfect for the 3-D crochet I specialise in, and it comes in a very large range of colours that has allowed me to make everything from bright-red cars to pastel wash-bears via purple grapes.
