Apologies for the long silence. I have been working on several projects recently and have not got round to writing these up and sharing with you. I have now had the change to give you more details on I made this colour block blanket. Find details here.
Apologies, I have been delayed in updating my blog. I have been recently finished 2 or 3 different projects and have not had time to write them up on my blog.
I love the colours of this Magic Pink Granny Square Blanket. In fact, it was so popular on my instagram page that someone asked to buy it before I had it finished.
I have now written up the free patten here.
I have a been working on another couple of projects and will update you soon.
My favourite thing to make is anything with granny squares in, but every now and then I need to do something different. I loved making this blanket in the Lemon Peel Stitch (sometimes called the Griddle Stitch). It has a lovely texture and is quick to work up. But best of all, it is super easy.
This stitch does not have big holes. It is versatile and can be used to make a variety of items (washcloths, scarves, animal blankets, baby blankets etc).
For written instructions on how to do the Lemon Peel Stitch please see here.
Apologies for the delay in publishing this, but I have finally finished writing up how I put my Granny Hexagons together to make a lovely throw.
Find the page for these details here.
Well I have finally finished my Granny Hexagon Blanket. As promised, I have now provided details on how I make crochet Granny Hexagons, half hexagons and quarter hexagons – please find the pattern/details here.
My next task is to write up a few more details on how I put my Granny Hexagon blanket together. More updates soon.

I haven’t written a post for a while, apologies for this. I have been really busy working on some different projects, and also family life also was busy.
I thought I would give you little taster of what is coming on my blog shortly.
Granny Hexagons have been taking up a lot of my time lately. I basically wanted to make a blanket made from different motifs and wanted to try something other than squares – so I went for Granny Hexagons.
I wanted the edges of the the blanket/throw to be straight (and not hexagon-shaped) so I had to work out how to make two different types of half hexagons as well as quarter hexagons. Anyway my plan is write this all up and have this on my blog shortly.
I have also worked on a simple granny square in between time, which requires a bit less thought.
Hope to update more on these projects soon.
I have just started selling some of my newer crochet blankets in my Etsy shop and so far this is going well. I must say it has been lovely to have some fantastic feedback from happy customers and I am thrilled that my blankets are finding new homes.
I also donate some of my work to charity and this week I sent off 2 large batches of blankets to charities.
All the blankets are 100% Acrylic and washable, so they should be perfect to use in their new homes.
I love to crochet, but sadly I cannot keep all my work. So I am really happy that I can make these items with lots of care and dedication and then see them go off to their new owners. Best of all – I can keep making and designing!

This week I thought I would try to use up some of the greens and blues in my yarn stash. All were part-balls and left-overs from other projects. I am not a fan of mixing yarn brands, so I chose all Stylecraft Special DK.
See more details on how I made this blanket here.
This week I have been finishing my rectangle granny square blanket. I have had so many requests to write up the pattern for the start of the rectangle. Please find my tutorial here.
This week I have been working on this Sea Urchin Granny Square Blanket. Ice Yarns sent me some of their yarn from their Saver range and this is what I came up with. The yarn is lovely to work with – it is soft and there was no splitting or joins. I loved the colours – and the yarn was thicker than I usually work with (it was Aran weight) – it was such a joy to work with that it felt strange going back to my usual double knit.
The written pattern for this blanket is available on the Ice Yarn Designer website here.
