In January a couple of years ago – pre-pandemic – I offered a limited edition dishcloth crochet kit with hot pink yarn. Perfect for the grey early days of the year when we all need a little pick-me-up and bright colours are such a tonic. I think if anything we now have more need than ever for a little cheer whilst doing the washing up, so I have sourced some more of this fabulous colour yarn for Spring 2022.Read More
My customers are so clever and often come up with suggestions for kits and ways to use my patterns that I haven’t thought of. This week one customer asked me for a different set of colours in my Eggs Crochet Kit, and I like the result so much, I’m offering it now as an option while stocks last.Read More
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’m excited to launch something very different today – a crochet pattern for a tree skirt and matching mandala!
These days a lot of us use a twig tree to decorate throughout the year – it’s a lovely way to reflect the changing seasons. It occurred to me that whilst I have lots of decorations to fill the branches of my tree, the base was a little, well, boring – a missed opportunity!
Hello lovely month of May!
(I think May is my second favourite month, after September, but who’s counting).
The month comes with two powerful scent memories for me, from two sides of my life.
First is the powerfully evocative scent of may blossom (hawthorn) and cow parsley together in the sunshine.
