For the Love of Crochet

Hey there!ย To be honest I’m just popping by to say hello. I haven’t written a blog post this week and can’t think of anything specific to write about. So this just because I love crochet and want to share it today. Hope that’s OK.

I finished a blanket, which is pretty much the same as the first Rainbow Edged Granny I made. Unlike the other one, this one is in my Etsy shop. At the moment there is a 20% discount on all the items. That runs until the 16th of this month. The code is ZEENS.ย  You’ll need that to get the discount, should you wish to spend some spondoolies.

I don’t think I mentioned here that I made my friend an Urban Stripe shawl. I used Drops Merino and in case you wanted to use that too, I will tell you that it took 7 balls of yarn and the notes are all there on my Ravelry project page.

I haven’t had as many views on the latest crochet podcast. I think it might be the big spider that’s done it. The episode actually has very little to do with the spider although of course I have mentioned him. It’s a standard episode with a little bit of dressing up thrown in. Please do check it out, it’s half and hour of crochet chat. Pop over to YouTube and have a look.

I’m picking up and putting down the Weekend Blankie. Have you made one? It’s a lovely, easy project. Completely stress free actually. Mindless crochet is my favourite crochet. I’m using StyleCraft Life dk.

And I’m still working on sitting down to write up the pattern for my Holey Smokes! shawl. It’s coming with me to StitchFest Southwest this weekend. It’s very Totnes is this shawl! If only I could muster the will power to type up the pattern. I know I’ll feel much better once it’s just blimmin well written. A kick up the bum is what’s needed.

That’s pretty much been my love of crochet this week. Although I did have to put it down to watch Stranger Things 2 this week. Oh my, that was good telly!! What have you been up to?

  1. Lovely! I’ve just been and watched the podcast, I’ve only just started getting time to watch podcasts so I’ve subscribed to it. Fab job ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Iโ€™ve been trying to catch up on podcasts, itโ€™s been such a busy month! I really like your blanket, this grey with the rainbow looks amazing ๐Ÿ˜ and of course the Holey Smokey shawl is fantastic! I hope youโ€™re having a good time at the festival ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Thank you ever so much!
      I’m behind on the podcasts I watch too. It’s getting tricky as new ones are popping up all the time!
      The festival was fab. I hope it goes from strength to strength. x

  3. Kick up the bum duly delivered – hope it does the trick! Seriously though, the fun is all in the making, so I fully get why you canโ€™t muster up the enthusiasm to write up the pattern. Some beautiful projects here, thanks for the show-and-tell:)

  4. lovely crochet, and lovely sofa! this week i have mostly been making a Moana costume for a three year old and not having nearly enough woolly fun. It’s lovely to see all your lovely stitches. xx (over use of the word ‘lovely’ is a common problem for me)
