Dilly-dally Doilies

Over the last few months I have been on a mission inspired by the Motorbike Doily I made last year for my brother Thue. I do not crochet doilies, I do not use doilies but I love the time-consuming work that the fine cotton thread offers and the fine delicate work one can churn out, […]

New Crochet Necklaces

I’m on a roll with these summer neck pieces. I like the simplicity of the grey linen and silver coloured beads – once we get the sun and a bit of a tan I think it’ll look great on some summer skin! Crochet Linen Necklace With Silver Coloured Beads © Irene Lundgaard 2013 I have […]

Crochet Neck Pieces For The Shop

I love the fashion of statement jewellery, I have seen very many beautiful pieces but I rarely wear any myself as my neck does not like the weight, not even a fine little gold necklace with a small pendant does my neck like. However, I am a great woman for wearing scarves, my neck really […]

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 […]

My New Adventure

I have always been a maker, I have made everything from papier-mâché puppies to stencilled postcards but yarn has always been my staple medium for making – be that in knitting or in crochet. Crochet, in latter years, has taken the largest chunk of my maker energy as I always have to be ahead with […]

In-between Crochet

I have an idea for a sweater I want to try and make but somehow I can’t get my crochet mojo in gear for it, so in the meantime I am having fun with flowers. Cute flowers, brash flowers, pretty flowers and all to be worn either on the head or around the neck! Crochet […]

Loads Of Crochet

I have been busy giving crochet workshops in Denmark and busy in my regular crochet classes here in Ireland too. So busy I have not been able to get my web page updated which is a disgrace as I have loads of news to share. However, I will not be able to get to that […]

Crochet Animation & Music Too

The last week the only thing I have seen of Donal is the back of the screen of his computer as he has been very busy extracting images and composing this little video of my crochet from the last year for me. A video of my crochet inspiration to whet your appetite for a crochet […]

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 […]

Crochet In The Bold Corner

It has been too quiet about this place for the last week or so, all due to much teaching of crochet and many very capable hands turning out well defined crochet stitches. I am also busy preparing handouts for my next workshops in Denmark; or rather, I should be doing that as they do not […]
