It’s That Shamrock Time Of Year

Soon Sct Patrick’s Day will be here, on March 17th to be exact and I know many have their hook out to celebrate. Last year I made this free Shamrock pattern available and I just thought I would remind you that it is still available.

A Bunch Of Crochet Flowers For A Friend

I thought I’d share a little bunch of crochet pink flowers I made for a friend who has been unwell. They are crochet in cottons from my stash. I had many colours of yarn but somehow the pinks spoke to me while diving for yarn. I will allow the pictures to speak for themselves while I contemplate what flowers to make for six green striped China cup and saucer sets that I have. Perhaps just something simple in cream. We’ll see what rolls off the hook.

Crochet flowers are great to give as a present to somebody in hospital as many hospitals do not allow cut flowers on the wards.

Note: If you are interested in purchasing crochet flowers along the lines of these, drop me a mail on irene@yarnclasses.com

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!

I thought I would share a picture of one of the headbands I’ve made over the last few days. It’s made in flax and wool. I have some beautiful cones of spring and summer coloured flax all suited for about a 2 mm hook. I think the rustic yarn gives a nice texture to the flowers, not like the smooth look of mercerised cotton and I have this notion it will be easier to keep in place too.

I love crocheting flowers!
