I’m in the middle of an Attic 24 Harmony blanket. I’ve had the pack for ages but I’ve discovered I’m not keen on squares. We went to Center Parcs last week though, and I only took the pack with me so that I would be forced to finish it. At home I have too much … More Crochet on the go!

Some people who claim to be wise would say my feelings are mine and I shouldn’t let a pair of shark slippers control me…but what can I say?

I’ve been busy making a cute little blanket for a friend’s expected baby. It didn’t take me long, and took just two skeins of King Cole Riot. The colour is a bit dark for a baby, but my friend Mel is not one to go for pink for a girl or blue for a boy … More Star baby
