For the past few days I have been having a crochet indulge to say the least! I am finding it a bit tricky to sleep normal amounts at the moment and quite literally I am engrossed in crochet from 7 am until 1 am…. I just can’t put the hook down! My partner fears for his life when he has to ask to do normal daily routines like ‘ can we go food shopping?’ or ‘ can we have tea now … It’s 10pm!’ OOPSY! I turn into a demon or even worse a stroppy teenager!
Friends and family are supporting me in many ways as I mentioned in my post ‘appreciation’ … I have some great requests, and have been going through them merrily!
Teaching friends how to crochet … They are amazing! It started with just two of them and now we have a lovely group on the go! I am so proud of each and every one of them as they have committed to learning, developing and perfecting their new skill. They really have inspired me to be crafty again … Something I lost last year and avoided due to many reasons. I really should photograph their work as they have progressed sooooooo much and are producing really beautiful things!
Making amigurumi ponies
I have made three of these so far … This white and blue one, another one exactly the same only with pink hair and a pink body and pink hair with grey hooves one. I will make another one, a unicorn and possibly a Pegasus too this week. I also intend on writing up a pattern for them (you see I just free form the shapes I like and make it up as I go along!) I hope to sell both in my etsy shop soon 🙂 so watch this space … I will let you know when they are available.
Making amigurumi lions
Rar! I absolutely love him to pieces! He took around 20 hours to make as I kept re shaping him until I was happy and THE MANE!!!! Seriously! That was my life for a whole day! Strand by strand fastening in each one! But it was soooo worth it!
Writing my blog on crochet … Which obviously requires me to make a variety of goodies and then share pictures and tutorials.
Designing and making a beautiful bedding set … Baby Amelia is getting her cot in a few weeks, and in return for Amelia modelling my creations I am making a bedding set including all kinds …
Granny square blanket with scalloped edging
Granny square cushion
Granny square bumpers
Granny square blankey with teddy head
Pom Pom mobile
Patchwork quilt with matching pillow (may have to sneak I some crochet edging! Hehehe!
Matching nappy bag
So far I have completed the top five items and have started the flower garland. I will upload the photos as soon as I have taken them. I may even squueeeezzzzeee in a tutorial on how to make the flowers 🙂
They include …
A variety of crochet baby cardigans … I have shared the pattern free on here, plus I will be selling the finished cardigans on my etsy soon. I will replace this sentence with a link to my shop when it is available.
I have also created new cardigan designs with a matching bonnet, both of which I am writing up 🙂
None of the cardigans have fastenings yet, but they will either have buttons or ribbons to finish the off 🙂
