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 like them but I find them a bit heavy for the spring and summer so over the last few weeks I have been playing with my hook to try and make a pared down version of a summer scarf.

The neck pieces are all made in either linen, cotton or a combination of the two. They are light and soft and then the pearls snook into the equation…

These two pieces are for sale in the Deirdre Minogue Shop in Tinahely, Co Wicklow.

Creative Growth

I am very busy with the hook these days… Creative juices are flowing and ides are formulated, tested and tried, deemed worthy of further pursuit or not.  I am preparing three different pieces of crochet for exhibitions, one for the Tinahely Agricultural Show Art Exhibition on August 6th and a couple of things for Culture Night, but more about that later.

Green Growth 2Not only that, I also have the most wonderful crochet class going every Tuesday morning (10.30-12.30) at the Tinahely Farm Shop, where there are two more weeks left of the current session, do join us! Drop me a mail or give me a ring, if you would like to take part: irene@yarnclasses.com / 085 769 1854. You can learn the very basics of crochet in just two hours! Drop in classes are €15 per class. I also give regular afternoon classes every Thursday afternoon at The Yarn Room – you can book in directly at the shop on: 085 1303762.

A lot of people are on their holidays at the moment, which is lovely – I hear great things about the wonderful Mediterranean water, sun and heat – something  we have not been blessed with this summer in Ireland yet, although today there is actually blue skies and shadows on the lawn which is wonderful. I often wonder if I would like to go on a sun holiday and every time I think about it I realize that the one journey I prefer over all journeys is the creative journey. The one where the ideas just flow, where all my being is absorbed by the thing I am constructing in crochet – to me, the best journey of all, and now I will go out into the beautiful sunshine with my hook and let rip.
