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. [...]
Today nine superb tapestry crocheters were hatched at the library in Skive in Denmark, another great day and I think the pictures speak for themselves!

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 get [...]
I have not exactly been going to bed early the last week or so and that is for a very good reason, if I may say so myself. I allowed myself to indulge in a spot of my all time favourite crochet discipline, namely tapestry crochet.

I started crocheting Bags Of Romance in Tapestry Crochet a couple of weeks ago and they turned out to be real cute, if I may so myself. It would be more accurate to call them purses but that just doesn’t roll off the tongue very well. They turned out so cute that I went on [...]
I was on the road a lot this week, I was even on the train to Cork and back again in the one day, but more about that later. For all my travels, I needed a handy little project that was portable and interesting at the same time and what better than [...]
Since I found Tapestry Crochet and made it my own my Scandinavian crochet self has found her true spiritual home. My love of colour work, which was always confined to knitting, I felt, has truly found a home. My plan this autumn and winter is to dip into the stash of beautiful coloured pure wool [...]
The Irish summer heat seeped out around July first, we’re back to rain and low temperatures as per usual but who says we can’t use summer colours anyway? I am at the moment.
The Summer Candy Swirl Beanie was completed in fun summer colours. It’s just a little sample that will only fit a child’s head, [...]
