Halloween is fast approaching, and it’s that time were we starting to sort out the decorations for the house, and ourselves! If you need some inspiration here are my Top Ten Halloween crochet patterns. Keep a look out for the Top Ten Halloween Knitting patterns coming soon!
So It’s the 4th of July tomorrow, a day where the USA celebrates getting rid of us British. In honor of my American friends and followers here is my Top Ten USA themed crochet patterns. I hope you enjoy!
I hate cardigans!
Unless they are really chunky and baggy I think they should be banned!
So I always have a dilemma! You are going out on a spring (or summer in the UK) evening and its not hot enough to go without a jacket but not cold enough for jacket so what do you wear, especially if you are going to somewhere reasonably nice with a dress code?
With just under a week away from fathers day, there is still plenty of time to whip up your dad one of my favourite patterns below. If he is like mine and terrible to buy for then the handmade touch will add that extra little something to your present.
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.
I missed my monthly giveaway in April so its about time I got May’s up and running with a crochet hook giveaway. This month is a 22 piece aluminium crochet hook set from 1mm to 10mm
My love of mandalas patterns started when I discovered overlay crochet and the wonderful blog LillaBjorn Crochet. Her style is so distinctive I couldn’t help but buy one of her patterns, the dandelion mandala, it was challenging I learnt a lot of new techniques and I am now obsessed with Mandala’s!
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!
Its been a few weeks now since I started this little Sophie’s Universe project and unfortunately it taking me a lot longer than I had hoped. What with a massive influx or orders, setting up and planning my CAL on Facebook (launching June 1st), its been rather busy! However I am off on holiday next week and hope I will get a few moments to myself push this along. Read more
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!
