Washi Wednesday - Introducing Minty

After 8 years of love and devotion, my cream soft top Beetle and I have parted ways. Moving on is always hard, I loved that car and it really felt like a limb. But sadly, now that I'm only part time at my grown-up job and I've chosen a more nourishing use of the rest of my time, a new Beetle wasn't really an option.

But that's OK. That decision led me to Minty:

The colour was in no way chosen to...

Rainbow Crochet Scarf - Free Pattern!

Zoë crocheted Amy a very pretty scarf for Christmas. As she couldn't find a suitable pattern, she wrote her own! Zoë has offered to share it with us, in case any of you fancy making one for yourself. Can't crochet? Don't worry, we've got that covered too...


This pattern uses UK crochet terms.

Use a 4.5mm hook and double knitting yarn in red, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple and pink. I used...

It's been a bit manic.


The last few weeks have whizzed by. We were insanely busy getting the Etsy Craft Party sorted. Then I had to get my VAT return done (I hate it, but at least it means I'm never more than 3 months behind on accounts work...). Things started to return to normal last week. We had a lovely knit & natter on Thursday with three new faces. Then Saturday came, and with it back to back workshops, with...

Another catalogue pose.

I crocheted Nic a Bender hat.

Rock on. 

Maybe Zoidberg next?

String Theory

Yup, we have string. Not just any string though, string in all the colours of the rainbow.  Amy crocheted a granny square out of it; we think if she kept going it would make a fabulous door mat! It's regular garden string - if you're green fingered but don't necessarily want green string. We're planning to use it for our upcoming macrame pot holder workshop.


 Also new in - button coasters! We've all taken one home for use on our craft tables-

All the satchels of the rainbow...

We took it in turns to pop down to the town hall for the Save the Children gig yesterday. I'll be honest, we did more buying than selling! Foot fall was poor, but it gave us a good opportunity to flex our market-muscles, and our pitch fee goes to a good cause. Zoë, Roisin, and Denise came along too, so we had a hoot. Roisin was modelling one of her Colette Hazel dresses and Denise was arm knitting!



Denise successfully introduced four lovely ladies to the world of crochet yesterday morning. Everyone gets to pick which balls of cotton they would like to use from a big basket; we think Tara picked the prettiest colours:


Our satchel stock was replenished this week, so our rainbow(s) are complete again...

Garibaldi Bunnies

I've had a lovely Easter weekend! On Saturday, we had two crochet workshops with Denise, one for spring-like flowers, the other for granny squares.

Big grins!
Getting there...

On Easter Sunday I played hostess and cooked roast beef for some of my favourite people in my new house. We stuffed ourselves stupid (Amy made us two massive and delicious desserts), drank and played with play-dough. I can...

Crochet tool belt!

Knit and natter was lovely and busy again last night, many of our favourite people came along to eat carrot cake:

Lemon shortbread button biscuits:

And crazy pink butterfly biscuits:
Oh yes, I think some people also did some knitting and crochet, between sweet courses and slurps of tea! You would be amazed how quickly that lot gets eaten by 10 hungry knitters.

Denise was also celebrating her Birthday...

Crochettastic

Denise is back! So our crochet workshops started again on Saturday. 
Deep in concentration

Our new-crocheters got to keep their hooks, a stitch marker and a pattern so they can carry on when they get home. Well done ladies, you all did brilliantly! Hopefully we'll see some of you at knit and natter soon?

We have a manic workshop week coming up. Screen printing with Lara on Wednesday, knicker making...
