Crochet Shop – Shop Crochet

Today I brought my very colourful current crochet project to Deirdre Minogue’s Shop in Tinahely. The project is a wrap in pinks and purples and orange and red and it’s quite in your face in the colourful fun sense of in your face! I tried to capture the colours with my camera, but did not […]

Kelp & Sea Foam Scarf

The other day I was diving in my considerable yarn stash and came across a couple of balls of Bouclé Mohair from Cushendale Wollen Mills. The colours were Glacier and Greengage and they just spoke to my inner colour lover there and then. I put everything else to one side and started crocheting immediately. Dana […]

Alternative Matrials In Crochet

I was in a builder’s suppliers a couple of weeks ago and came across a spool of Manila twine, I love the scent of Manila and couldn’t resist buying a few meters of it to convert into “something”. On the way home in the car I remembered my spool of candlewick cotton in my stash […]

I have had a few nice days off and for some reason, the crochet hooks have been fairly idle too! However, I am preparing workshops for the new year and not least my regular classes which commence on Thursday January 10th again and last night an idea for some fun Granny Squares struck – Granny […]

Morning Glory Tea Cosy

A couple of weeks ago a friend asked if I could make her a tea cosy for a vintage teapot, which she was going to give away as a present. She showed me the teapot some days later and I was simply just inspired by the delicate China and not least the pretty colours. Morning […]
