I think I have a problem

Posted on: August 3, 2012

My blog is turning into a crochet blog!  Sorry folks who don’t like crochet, but today’s post is all about hooks and yarns and really cool stuff I have found about the internets.  I promise next week will be a crochet free zone.  I wont even mention the word.

As you may be aware from previous crochet blog posts, I have picked up the hooks this year in a determined effort to learn to crochet beyond the granny square.  I must say I am quite proud of the progress I’ve made.  I am finding more and more, I am reaching for the crochet hooks over my felt and embroidery thread.  (Although I do have plans to add a bit of crochet to my pincushions – I dream of it at night, so I must find time to bring the ideas into reality so my dreams can move on)

I can’t show you my Krista throw progress, because I am only a week or 2 off finishing them.  I want to wait and show you the finished products.  But here’s an update on how I’m going with my basket weave throw

Half way now 🙂

Now to cool stuff I’ve found

I made my own hook case not too long ago, but I am thinking of making another one – I love this pattern!

I think I might have to start wearing crochet – I wont do the ol’ crochet bikini, but this is pretty cool

I found this and thought awesome!  Then I saw it was by one of my Instagram friends, so its a double yay!  I love seeing what Crafty Mummy is up to – follow her if you’re on Instagram and you wont be disappointed 🙂

You may already know I have a thing about bright, colourful bunting.  I love this crocheted version.

Just love those delicately lacy mason jars. So pretty! Don’t worry a crochet obsession isn’t too bad. Mine is potatoes!

Nah, you don’t have a problem. Crochet is never a problem 🙂

I really love the basket weave throw. The color and pattern looks amazing. I think I’m slowly developing an obsession with crochet as well. I love talking about it. The crochet covered spoon looks cool. 🙂 nice job!

I think there’s a few of us enjoying the crochet ride Shelley! Your throw looks great! And now I have to go look at that blanket tutorial…

Crochet is awesome!!! Love the mason jars. So many projects, so little time!!!

I remember manikg long beaded crochet necklaces when I was a young girl. It was the 70s. I wore a fringed vest. What can I say? Love that you had pi as a table number at your wedding. That is SO COOL. Wonderful finds I’m especially drawn to the snowflakes.

I know what you mean! I started my blog as a place for reviews (particularly book reviews) and crafts have taken over! I feel sorry for all of my followers who are waiting for my reviews but I find that crochet is quick enough to fill the gaps between finishing books!

your basket weave throw is looking good & the spoon is awesome, lol

I am glad I am not putting some folks off LOL

And I am still giggling at your potato obsession Jane – and I am intrigued!

Thanks for the kind comments about my basket weave throw – It will be a project I will be very proud of, once its finished 🙂

Wow! I didn’t know there was so much you could with crocheting! {I love Pinterest too!} Thanks for stonpipg by my blog!! Hope to see you again soon! xo, Reannah

I love your basket weave! And you know I love crochet ;o) Thanks for the shout out. Now I’m off to visit that bunting link…

My pleasure craftymummy 🙂
