crochet crazy

Well, I woke up today and the first thing I thought about was wool and my crochet needle ... I  truely have the bug! Most Mondays I have off from my daily work. Crocheting has become a real distraction and my mind is busying with projects I want to try. Hopefully this week I will take a trip up into the West End of London to buy more yarn as my current supply is a bit limited. So far I have made different hearts, flowers and made my first beenie hat! Quietly happy that my textile skills are coming back!

Things I want to crochet next:
Headband earwarmer
Wrist warmers
Neck warmer or cowl

Just loving these piece I found on

11th month

I've been really quite the last couple of months because I've been focused more on my playground work. Mainly on a Sunday I read other peoples blog's and catch up with what they have been up to. This has inspired me to be more creative, if other's can do why can't I find the time?

I think about making, colour, yarn and crafts materials all day but finding the time outside of my daily work to be creative can be hard. I have a billion things I want to make and tackle but only find time to make notes, sketches and doddles.

The last couple of weeks I have really got back into textiles and this has made me pick up my crochet needle in the evenings. My sister has requested a crochet blanket for christmans...once I had mastered the scitiches again choosing the style of the squares took sometime and I have a small basket now with different size and coloured samples. Maybe afterwards i will use these for a mis-matched blanket too!

This morning I attempted to try to make a 'hello kitten' crochet patch. It's slightly out so I think I will give it another try!
