Watching out for any bugs to catch….some chameleon storage baskets

I’ve been on a bit of a storage basket theme recently but with so many I want to make they have been taking over my WIP’s and I have been trying to get a few more finished. Next out of the crochet pile are these Chameleon storage baskets, I love the eyes and body details on these and they have really made me smile while making them.

Just had to make one more crochet Dachshund wall hanging – but this time just a little bigger!

I liked my crochet Dachshund wall hanging so much and I really enjoy corner to corner so I decided to make another! However I wanted this one to be a little bigger, have slightly different hanging loops and have some tassels. So with those requirements in mind I set off and made a second version – here it is!

Bit of a twist on a crochet granny square blanket – time for a log cabin for granny!

Earlier this year I took part in Zeens and Rogers granny cal 2019 and it took me a while to think of something I could do which would be a little different, then one day after spending a while messing with some graph paper and coloured pencils I thought about having a change of direction in the granny blanket. From that the granny log twist was born! I had to keep an eye on what row I was on when making the pattern as I had a habit of getting a bit carried away and forgetting I needed to add the twist in!

I have now made two of these blankets and have finally had a chance to get the pattern sorted and uploaded to my Etsy shop.

Textured stripe crochet blanket – so snuggly I’m making more!

This blanket has been in the pipeline for a long time now, I have been making a bit, changing my mind on the stitches used, undoing it then redoing it and not liking the stripe arrangement and undoing it…. for what seems like forever, however I finally hit a breakthrough a few weeks ago where I found the perfect stitch and the perfect stripe layout.

I found the stitch gave a perfect textured snugglyness to the blanket which I was looking for and now I have finally got the blanket finished and the pattern is now available over on my Etsy shop. I love this blanket so much I am already starting on another in a different colour!
