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 class or a customized, themed workshop for you and your friends. Drop me a mail at for details on availability!

Donal also composed and recorded the pretty tune which he gave to me to use anyway I like, he also made the animated hook too and all I can say is, I Like!

Thank you for the video Donal!

Fingerless Freeform Crochet

I am very excited about the Freeform Crochet Workshop which I am preparing for the library in Skive in Denmark next Saturday.

I found a few odd balls of ends of yarn in my basket, picked a pallet to prepare some crochet scrumbles for the workshop but they took on a life of their own and turned into a pair of fingerless mittens. Fun, cheerful warm hands for the winter!

I have another pallet of colours out now, rather more acute in tone, I wonder if they are going to turn themselves into anything or if I will actually have to take charge… One of the great inspirations in freeform crochet is the fact that it has a will of it’s own almost.

Note: If you would like to take part in the workshop you have to contact Skive Library directly. Details can be found here!

If you would like me to come to you and your friends/craft group and do a Crochet Freeform Workshop just drop me a mail and I will customize a day for you and we can work together to make it happen. Contact me at

Free form Crochet Workshops in Denmark

Hækle Workshops Oktober 2012 Skive Bibliotek plakat - LørdagI’m currently preparing a couple of full day workshops at the end of the month. I have been invited back to the library in Skive in Denmark, where I will be teaching on Saturday October 27th and Sunday October 28th. The Sunday workshop is fully booked, but I believe there are still a few places left in the Free Form workshop on the Saturday.

I’m having great fun making a few samples of which I will show pictures later in the week when I come across some proper light for taking decent photos in.

There’s Crochet And Then There’s Crochet

Burly Haired Crochet Sheela Na Gig Gone Venus by Irene LundgaardWhile my sheep is left to dry and while I think up what’s next for it I have had fun with crocheting a sunflower which will be revealed at a later stage (once I get the maths right). However, I have also been celebrating International Crochet Month. I have immersed myself further in this piece of free-hand crochet. The right term might be free-form, but I always associate that term with “scrumbles” and loads of bullion stitches and this piece I’m working on has none of that, it is sculptural and has taken on a life of it’s own.

It does have what to me appears to be something that could be called burly hair. I know other people would probably not use that term in connection with hair but seeing that it is my hands this piece of work is running through, I can tell you, it is just that!

I wonder if Venus ever had burly hair – or if she was a redhead for that matter…

I’m longing to just crochet and crochet until this creature has fully developed, but first I must print the last few sheets of hand-outs for the workshops in Denmark at the weekend and there is also the small matter of some packing to be done, but tomorrow, while I travel…
