About Me

My photo
Crafts have always been a big part of my life. They have been my obsession yet kept me sane. My latest obsession is crochet. Wool and the finished products have taken over the house. A blog seems like the next step in my woolie journey wherever that takes me. Feel free to pop in and see what I am up to.

First Steps

Well I have to start somewhere so it's straight in....

On the hook at the moment are about 3 projects.  Why is it never just one?

Project 1; Started a few weeks ago is a royal blue scarf from a cone of fine wool bought at a sale of work.  No idea of the composition but it feels like mercerised cotton.  I wound off three balls of it and wound the three together to make a DK yarn that looks good on a 5mm hook.

Project 2; The reason project 1 was shelved!  A shrug in a deep purple aran wool mix, worked on a 8mm hook. Slow work as its rather large - not the little shoulder shrug type but a full sleeved, back-warming cover-up to keep me warm during the winter while I work the 1,000,001 planed projects.

Project 3: A scarf challenge to see how long a scarf I can crochet out of a standard ball of sock wool.  About half-way there and its about 24 inches long and 12 inches wide.  Working on a 5mm hook and its looking good so far.  Hopefully finished by the week-end.  But whether it will be long enough is another question!

Will put up photos when I can get proper day light to take them in.  Our weather these days has turned everything grey.
