The Rhythm Of Crochet

A while ago, (a year to be exact, I have just been reliably told, cough-cough! How time flies!) I was given a gorgeous and very inspiring gift. I was given a piece of crochet music. Donal wrote a pretty little tune for me all inspired by the rhythm of my crochet hook. Honestly, it doesn’t […]

His, Her & Their Lot Hats

I finally have all the presents done and nearly good to go to Denmark on Wednesday.  I just need to sew on pom-poms and weave in ends. His & Her Hats worked in Alpaca © Irene Lundgaard 2011 I made a His & Her Hat set out of two balls of Alpaca reversing the colours […]

Present Making Into The Small Hours

Peace reigns in the sofa and piles of presents are rolling off the hook… Nisse, Pixie and Elf Hats © Irene Lundgaard 2011 I’m nearly there! Hope you are too!

The Innocence Of Charity

The Innocent Big Knit was on earlier in the year and what a great cause they raise money for. Age Action Ireland benefit every year from the hard work of very many knitters and crocheters around Ireland. I was one of the contributors again this year and one of my little hats even made it […]

Colourful Fair Sneak Peek

My hooks are red hot these chilly days as they are busy making stock for our Christmas Spirit Fair on Sunday. Much of my produce is inspired by the cold in the sense that it’s things to keep things warm be that people’s heads or tea and coffee pots! Everything is made in pure yarns […]

Danish Pixie Irish Style

In Denmark we have pixies rather than elves helping for Christmas.  However, pixies are not always all that helpful, they also do cheeky things like turning milk blue in cartons in the fridge or messing up all the shoes in the hall. A pixie is something along the lines of a Leprechaun, they are about […]

Innocent Big Knit – Last Chance

The Innocent Big Knit 2011 really got my creative juices going. I ended up making a collection of miniature hats in Einband yarn from Istex. Every time I made a hat another one was queuing up to be made. I love when creativity flows like that. These are examples of some of the hats I […]

A Head Full Of Hats

The Innocent Smoothie Big Knit has sparked my imagination and I have gone into hat-mode. Small hats, warm hats, fun hats, colourful hats, elegant hats, plain hats. Little ones, that is. They are all small wee hats that are done in no time. I am having such fun and I’m completely inspired by all these […]

Flopsy Dahlia Sun Hat

I am born an optimist and I think making a sun hat these days proves that point to the full. It ain’t exactly sun we are gifted with in Ireland these days, nor is it heat. Nevertheless, I crochet this ladies sun hat, just because I could. I wanted to test the texture that a […]
