Mindless Crochet: How to crochet a scarf

I was needing another mindless project on my hook that I could pick up in between designs. So I came up with this little 4-round repeat, which I’m making into a scarf. It’s nice and repetitive but requires a little thinking to get started lol. I hope you can join in and make your own. (It doesn’t have to just be a scarf, you could make it into a blanket or cushion etc too) Materials: Yarn: I’m using Bambino Prints by Stylecraft (just going to see how long I can make it… Read More

Naturals: A review and free pattern

Do you want to crochet the free coaster pattern? Read till the end, because it’s all yarn and crochet talk and we all love that, right? Stylecraft’s newest range of yarn is ‘Naturals’. A Bamboo/Cotton blend (60%/40%) weighing 100g and 250 metres in length. It is one of the softest yarns I’ve worked with and have easily fallen in love with it. It is pure joy to work with. Effortless gliding on your hook, beautiful stitch definition and the feel…well you’ll have hold it in your own hands to be the judge…. Read More

Goodbye 2019

Apologies come first as I’ve been super busy with life (I know, how annoying sometimes), that I haven’t had much time to actually sit down and blog. I’ve missed it. So I’m going to start again by saying goodbye. That’s weird but true. YEAR IN REVIEW As my memory isn’t very good, I’m actually going to use my Instagram account as a bit of a reminder of what has happened this year. (Stay tuned for something special at the end) I don’t know how many designs I have created this year, but… Read More

Floral Dreams

For me, as a crochet designer I tend to have favourites… I know this isn’t probably how you should look at your own designs (they kind of feel like my own children – I don’t have an overall favourite, I just have a favourite at that particular moment in time, like ‘Oh wow Charlie is being super quiet right now, how nice is that!’ that sort of moment which I’m sure plenty of other parents/family could relate to) BUT we’re not talking about my real children… but if I were to choose… Read More

Sharing the love

I’ve decided to start sharing fellow crochet designers and makers and to spread their beautiful work, because if you’re like me, you love just looking at all things crochet! This post is going to contain three beautiful fellow crocheters, but usually I think I’ll do one person per post. I hope you (well I know you’ll love) like what they do! Sandra grabbed my attention when she tagged me in my newest design Salutations Mandala on Instagram. I was blown away by how beautiful the colours all go so well together. It… Read More

Let’s Have Some Fun – WINNERS

Okay! So I replied to all the winners and had a special comment as a reply to everyone but I’m afraid no one got it lol. I’m still getting the hang of how this works so I’m dedicating this post to the winners and everyone else who entered, because I have a little something special just for you. If anyone has an idea of how it all works, I’d love to hear from you, not sure what the point of having a reply is if it doesn’t work ** Copied and pasted… Read More

Let’s have some fun!

2019 is the year for me to blog more! I simply cannot put it any other way. I’ve had this little blog now since 2016! Can you believe that. Soo I’m going to do more blog posts yay. They will be about crochet of course and how I actually find time to design and play with yarn whilst being a mum to three busy busy boys and also working a paid job etc. In saying that my time management skills will need a HUGE improvement hahah. SO (caps intended) to get the… Read More

Goodbye 2018

What a year it has been! I would like to first and foremost say a big THANK YOU to all of you for following me throughout 2018. It is seeing the creations that you make from my designs what makes me want to keep on coming up with new ones, aside from my brain not really stopping with all the possibilities that could be turned into crochet. Let’s go back to the start of the year (it’s ok, I’ll do a quick wrap-up of it) to where I decided designing a flower… Read More

Delicious Crochet Shawls – a review

When Lisa Cook asked me to be a part of her blog tour, I jumped at the opportunity, mainly because I love her work but because I knew it was going to be an amazing book, and I needed to get my hands on it stat. Well, I was right! And amazing book and the rest. It’s a bit different to Tuva’s other crochet books.  They layout is wonderful – so easy to follow along; the photography works very well, as I want to make at least one of everything and the… Read More

All aboard – Let’s go CROCHET CRUISING

Yes!!! You did read that correctly. There are such things as crochet cruises. Who would have thought!? Well not me until earlier this year when a fellow crocheter and owner of Crochet Australia departed on one in March. What’s not to love about a crochet cruise? Food, fresh air and serious time for crochet, all whilst surrounded by fellow hookers and beautiful views. So I’d say that’s a big win. The Celebrity Solstice is a 5 star cruise ship. Let me tell you a little bit about the cruise itself. In point-form… Read More
