I recently added sets of mini yarn skeins to my shop, and I thought it would be a good idea to share some ideas for what you can do with just 10 metres or yarn or less (10 metres is just over 10 yards), because it’s more than you might think!Read More
I’m using my crochet wash mitt pattern, which I haven’t used for a while, and it’s rather fun rediscovering it, almost as if it were written by a stranger. Terry toweling washcloths are all very well, but hand-crocheted wash mitts are definitely the business!

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.
