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.
