I have been teaching lots of classes / workshops over the last few weeks, plus I have lots of commissions to work on for books & magazines too!
Here are some of the photo's that I took along the way, either of my pupils work or even some of my own crochet!
I have been a busy bee with a hook!
Here's DM crocheting my blanket from the fantastic DK Crochet book
And this is a cute lion that BP made, in fact that's a very cute lion!
From my Shaftesbury Class, L made this lovely tissue box cover
And this is a neckerchief that I made from my cotton tape bought at the London Knit & Stitch Show. I liked it so much that I made....
...a second one with the other skein that I bought!
Back to class now & KPK wanted to learn a new stitch called star stitch
So we both added star stitch to our multi stripe blankets!
SC has made a cat basket using Boobles T-Shirt Yarn - again this is a pattern from the DK crochet book.
And at the end of my 4 week beginners class ET made her first Granny Square
I got this lovely DMC Natura & Petra in the post this week.
It's for a commission so I can't tell you what I am making with it - sorry
Now take a look at this amazing blanket - do you remember the Coach Trip to the London Knit & Stitch? Well, these are just SOME of the squares joined together by the marvelous AR who volunteered. This blanket will be going to Julia's House a local charity, so that they can raffle it or auction it off to raise funds.
This is just one of two blankets. I simply love the colourway chosen. Well done AR.
And here she is again - now a blanket junkie!
Considering she nearly threw her hook out of the window when she first started to try this pattern - didn't she do well????? YAY amazing.
Here is the lovely B with her scarf made in shell stitch with wool bought from the London Knit & Stitch.
Oh! Another postal treat - my new book.
Yesterday (Saturday 1st November) I took a Christmas Crochet Decorations Workshop
We had fairy lights, tinsel yarn, the music of the season & mince pies!
Here is one of my students showing off her Halloween costume - a Ninja Turtle, which she made in one night!
And here are some of the baubles
We all made
I love them all
We also made Stars, Christmas Trees, Christmas Wreaths & more!
