This Week I’m Loving…

Playing with colour: Making these fab Loopy Roses from Australian Crochet designer Sarah London

Crocheting little motifs in vibrant shades of Debbie Bliss Cotton DK and Rowan Handknit Cotton  to  make a blanket that will cheer up me up on winter mornings …

I’ve also been reading …

Pinterest – a great way to share ideas and inspiration.

This article about Ravelry –  I knew it was big – but not that big!

I’ve been enjoying … my Ishbel, knitted in beautiful Shilasdair Luxury 4 ply. Of course it’s too hot to wear right now, but that hasn’t stopped me taking it everywhere!

Ishbel (Pattern by Ysolda Teague)

I’ve also enjoyed the new Harry Potter film (end of an era), all the frivolity of Fibre + Clay at RHS Tatton, a lovely lunch with some knit group pals and planning a little trip away with the teen. I’ll see you all when I get back when voting will be over. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me and sent such lovely messages. They are all much appreciated.

Have a good week, I know I will.

  • So proud of my crochet pupils on today's  workshop at @ditzyrosemakes . Most had never picked up a hook before, but fuelled by copious mugs of tea, cake & mutual encouragement they can now officially call themselves crocheters! Thankyou all for coming & being such fun to work with xxx
#ditzyrosemakes #grannycoolcrochet #crochet #amigurumi #learntocrochet And so it begins - checking the text actually fits the flatplan, swatching, proofreading & wondering why I put myself through this! New book nerves!!! Really looking forward to sharing this one' progress from plans to print over the next few months
#amwriting #crochet #horgolás #haken #haaktechniekenbijbel #uncinetto #grannycoolcrochet #crochetgirlgang #crochetconcupiscence Toadstools - definitely not the edible kind! Hooking up a few of these today & remembering how satisfying quick crochet projects can be!
#crochet #amigurumi #lovecrochet #naturalfibres #grannycoolcrochet  #horgolás #crochetmakesmehappy #häkeln #crocheteveryday The perfect yarn / button combination? About to cast on a baby cardigan, an excuse to use these beautiful buttons from @textilegarden. I like to use natural fibres and this wool & mohair blend from @thefibrecompany is a firm favourite, especially as it contains a proportion of British wool. We should celebrate our British wool industry & the farmers & shepgerds who give us beautiful, sustainable fibres to work with.

My review copy of @emmavarnam 's new book just arrived. Can't wait to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy this! Perfect inspiration for the ladies on my next granny squares workshop.
#grannysquares #grannysquares rock #grannycoolcrochet #grannysquarelove #amigurumi #crochetblanket Yesterday I made more elderberry jelly, but ran out of jars! Lucky my neighbour saves all hers & what was left is now in  one of my @littlewrenpottery bowls. It feels like we're approaching peak autumn here, the starlings have stripped the rowan tree of its berries, the oak leaves are turning and the forest floor is strewn with sweet chesnuts. This really is my favourite season.
