About Me

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.

When I Grow Up...

I want to be...
Life seems to be a continuous cycle of growing up! As a teenager I felt grown up. I was tall and lanky and quite mature for my age. Or so I thought! At 21 I knew I had finally grown up only to realize at 28 I knew nothing! By my 30s the was/was not cycle was changing daily, only to settle down again about 10 years later!
And now? Now I know I have much to learn, many more experiences to enjoy, plans to make, places to see, friends to make and much more I can be. Maybe I'm finally growing up!!
This little purse/bag still can't make up its mind what it wants to be. I woke up this morning thinking about how I can crochet a zip into a bag so had to try it. After two false starts I figured it out. I used a needle and yarn to place a line of stitches around the zip that I could then crochet onto. And by then crocheting a row into the post of that row I can continue as normal to work the body of the bag. But as I haven't planned past the zip stage it could turn out to be any shape or size yet!

The final bag. There are ways it could be improved but as a first attempt it works..
