Crochet Bag…..Well, Because I Was Bored

I started playing with some patterns I’ve pinned on my Pinterest, and while I watched some TV last night I crocheted this cute little bag.  I gifted my friend with it this morning, but I think I will be making more of these in the future – predominantly to house little gifts etc.

Wedding Shawl Progress

I’m up to row 7 of the netting! Looks a bit messy at the moment but hopefully by the time I finish and block it, it will lay flat and the netting will look neater. Lots of chaining and triple trebles involved!!

Crochet Hook Holder

Unfortunately my posts have been few and far between over the last few weeks, due to my life being crammed with things to organise and do.  All of this has NOT stopped me from crocheting however, and I’ve finally finished a project started just after Christmas.

So, introducing my new crochet hook holder!  Double lined, double edged, colourful craziness made out of 4ply cotton with a 3.25mm hook.  What do you think?

Next on my crochet agenda is a navy shawl to cover up my sausage arms when I’m a bridesmaid at my sister’s wedding…

Did Someone Say CUTE GLOVES?!

I can FINALLY put up some images of the gloves/wrist warmers I made for my mother for Christmas, since she received them via mail last week.  Made from a gorgeous pumpkin merino/silk 8 ply yarn, I really did not want to part with these!  I’m extremely happy with the pattern, and will definitely make myself a set before winter.

A Crochet Hook Holder

During the Christmas holidays (after I finished the coasters of course) I finished a few random projects, however the main one has been a crochet hook holder.  It’s been a little time consuming due to the small ply (4 ply cotton, 3.5mm hook) but definitely worth it, since I think it looks great and I am in dire need of somewhere safe to put my hooks.

I found a nice looking pattern on Sweetheart Crochet (http://sweetheartcrochet.blogspot.de/) but it has been a bit tricky in some places since there are no written instructions, only images.
