I have always had an interest in the zodiac signs, constellations, astrological symbols and how it all ties in with Greek mythology. So I thought what better than to channel this into my first love crochet! I have wanted to do a CAL for a long time so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
It was St George’s day yesterday the patron Saint of England, famous for dragon slaying, being the ultimate knight of the realm and gentleman. Being English through and through (sort of!) I thought I would publish a simple yet effective English Rose pattern in his honor as I have patterns already up for St David and St Patrick!
As my son is only 2 this is the first time I have been inflicted with the terrible last minute “find a special outfit day” for school or nursery. As I mentioned in my Top Ten Easter Patterns post I had to make at short notice an Easter Bonnet for a boy who is completely not interested in bunnies, chicks, or anything remotely Eastery apart from the chocolate.
It’s that time of year again where the pressure is on to decorate your home with bunnies, eggs and chicks, and in some cases (mine!) to knock up a winning Easter bonnet for the school competition with only a weekends notice. These are the days that I am glad I crochet!

Spring is firmly round the corner, I’m no longer having to scrape the windscreen of my car or have the heating on full! At this time of year I like to escape from crocheting blankets, hats, and gloves and add a bit of spring into my WIP’s.
So for a little inspiration here is my top ten guide to Spring crochet patterns.
On the 1st of March it is St Davids day the Patron Saint of Wales! I feel he always gets a little over shadowed by good old St Patrick whose day is two weeks later. So to celebrate my Welsh heritage I decided to create a little Daffodil pattern, the national flower of Wales, for you all to enjoy! Use it in bunting, as an appliqué, in the middle of a granny square or how ever you like. Read more
