I can’t sleep so I’ve just set up a twitter account, linked it to my blog, so now no one can read it or see my tweets :p

I had a message today from a friend asking for a basic idea for how to do a kindle cover and I was gutted that I haven’t finished the one that I’m halfway through, therefore haven’t even started writing out the pattern, or seeing if it’s readable, or if people would even like how the case turns out!

I’ve got abit of a “thing” for using double crochets to join things together instead of sewing, I think it can look prettier and depending on how I want it to look either show off the top of the DC or have it show the underside of the stitch so that it looks like I’ve sewn it. I’ll have to take pictures to show you!

Tonights crocheting didn’t really happen. Little H is still out of sorts and then once I got him into bed I couldn’t settle mj but I did manage to sew some ends in, but remembered toretake pictures first, there’s something satisfying about seeing all of the yarn ends waiting to be sewn in, knowing you did all that. Although I normally get a feeling of dread at the same time, sewing all those ends in just doesn’t hold my attention, I feel myself itching to start on the next bit/something new!

Tomorrow I’m hoping to do a full picture update from the laptop thus avoiding awful iPad autocorrects!

Oh & my twitter is @CCrochetMama. What’s yours? X

WIP’s & FO’s

So, here’s the post I’ve been meaning to do for awhile to update with my WIPs & FOs. Only even now it will be a brief one as there is an almost 3 month old baby who needs feeding soon and its nearly 1am (always seems to be 1am!)

Firstly, here is a giant granny square blanket I made for a lady who brought the blue & white giant granny square at the neonatal fundraiser (I think you can see it in the pics in that blog entry!) I enjoyed making it at first, because I took afew of the different granny square methods I’d read and mushed them together and came up with this. I’m proud of it, it was around 50 rounds including the edging and the time it takes to get around at that big.. grr!

It makes me smile looking at those pictures! Its the first one I’ve managed to make not go squiffy and twisted!


My Kindle Case… I’m trying to write out a pattern for how I did it, but on trying again I’m wondering if other people would like it (or even be able to follow my waffle!) The camera has made the blue buttons look way bluer than they are! I made it with Sublime Bamboo & Pearls, its so soft!


A blanket that is still exactly as it is in this picture, its quite an easy pattern to do, its a japanese one a friend lent to me, the pattern is done in a plain white yarn, but I had to try it with my sirdar smiley stripes, I’m still not sure I like it, but everyone else seems to!


And finally my WIP Ripple that I started when I was in hospital before MJ was born. I love looking at it but haven’t touched it aside from to take this picture in ages! (Its Rowan classic cotton I think.. I’ll double check and get back to you on that one!)


Right I should really go and feed & sleep. I’ll edit this later I think!
