Weeks 38 & 39 - Lets crochet sock it to them!!

Just look at the improvement here.  In BLUE we have practice at home (homework) and in PINK is the same homework revisited in class with "teacher" helping!

"H" was so thrilled with her "improved" swatch.


In another class

We "dabbled" in a bit of Tunisian Crochet

It really doesn't take long to get hooked

On this version of "Knit & Crochet" combined.

We all had fun & all the class went online to Amazon or EbaY to buy Tunisian hook sets

I didn't want to waste time travelling in a car, so I took my Crochet along!

My dogs having a run 

And here they are helping to raise money for Greyhound Rescue

One of my pupils made this GREAT bathroom mat from cotton.
I love the popcorn star, don't you?

Sock Workshop was held on Saturday 20th

All was prepared & ready to go the night before

With lots of love Merino mix wool ready to use

These are my "workshop" pair

I put the sign on the gate

And socks were made!!

Lovely colours

Cosy Toes

A "Quick to Work" Pattern

Made it easy to make a crochet sock

And finally

SC brought in her finished Bavarian Crochet Blanket

Weeks 35 to 37 Guilty as Charged!!

I know, I know I am guilty as charged for not updating my blog for ages

I have been run off my feet, taking lessons / workshops, organising lessons / workshops, finalising the coach trip (which is now fully booked) designing for magazines & books 
PLUS as you will see below, making the final blanket for my dog Perry

Here's the edging going on

Oh & I started to make another jumper for ME!!

I love working with this wool

Ah! here's Perry testing his new blanket out in the lounge

And this is ME at the Vintage Fair in Blandford

I had a lovely stall & took a "pop up" crochet workshop there

This blanket was made by Sarah, who not only owns Sparrow UK but hosts Crochet Workshops there, which I take for Beginners & Improvers.

One of the improvers have tried her hand at chevrons - I love it

And someone else is making good use of varigated yarn

& also lining these adorable bags too!

I recently took a button covering class

We used DMC Petra Yarn - Didn't they turn out well??

Back to the dogs blankets - this is Scrumpy all cosy and comfy under his blanket

However these blankets are for their night beds



Scrumpy & Perry

Scrumpy the next morning!

Did I mention that I was getting a Tattoo done?

I love it - it's a work of art 


Until next time hookers
