This pattern has been under way for quite some time. It could be argued that I have been procrastinating over it, although that wouldn’t be me to do that at all…
I actually really enjoy working this pattern and have another sample ready for photography once the light and the weather is more co-operative. [...]
I keep claiming that I don’t “do” texture in crochet and here I am working mesh for the best part of a month. First it was the Blue Morph hat, then it was my Word Catcher for Culture Night and now it’s colourful webs for the trees in the garden to catch the spirit of [...]
You may recall I stared playing with some Icelandic Plötulopi at the beginning of the month and how my notion of making something pretty in intricate lace fell by the wayside…

Instead I worked with the colour and was true to myself [...]
In January I started a poncho which morphed into a sweater and eventually became a tunic type thing… I finished it some weeks ago but never got photos taken to share. However, the other day I got some shots of it and thought I would share one here.

In the autumn of last year I knit my Bonbon Bag with the view to releasing the pattern. It’s a simple enough bag to knit, but the writing of the pattern was less so – partly due to some rather illegible notes… However, I finally found the time to focus on writing up the pattern [...]
I have this weekend free from commitments other than the ones that I have to myself and the household I live in. I love having a couple of days like that and it means that I finally had time to do calculations on the Lazy Cable Fingerless Mittens from last week [...]
I have finally managed to load the Twisty Twirly Scarf pattern so that it’s now available on Ravelry. It took a while and a bit of ploughing through the help files… Reading the small print is obviously not my strongest point! The pattern doesn’t have a lot of small print, it’s fairly straight forward and [...]
I have just rooted out my nifty little set of short 3 mm DPNs for a few hats I want to make for the Innocent Big Knit in aid of Age Action Ireland as I might one day need some age action myself.
I was looking through my stash of juicy coloured yarns while I was [...]
A long time ago I made a simple beginners pattern for a Tea Cosy. I made it in a turf brown Kilcarra Aran Tweed (can’t beat that yarn) with a pink tie. It’s an easy pattern but the other day,when I had the sample in my hand, I thought it looked terribly tired and miserable [...]
Moonlight ~ a crochet body cosy ~ © 2009 Irene Lundgaard
I finally got around to finalizing the pattern for this snug and warm crochet body cosy which is called Moonlight. It’s a poncho of sorts and it’s worked in 6 balls of Debbie Bliss Como which is a very chunky luxurious yarn made from 90% [...]
