In my first 2 columns for Inside Crochet, we focussed on practical, colourful patterns for the hallway. The first one is a rainbow storage doorstop and the second is a bright, wavy draught excluder.
The Nuts About Squares CAL by Esther Dijkstra started yesterday and I am very pleased to tell you that the CAL starts with one of my squares.
I am very excited to tell you about my latest book! Bold Baby Crochet features ten designers and 30 bright projects for babies. With so many projects to choose from, which one will you make?
I will be chatting to Marly Bird on The Yarn Thing podcast this evening, and I am both excited and nervous about it! I hope you will be able to join us!
I am sure you have all heard of the Hygge CAL by now. Designed by Kirsten Ballering in 5 gorgeous colourways, it is both striking and unique. The Rainbow version is my favourite. What is yours?
The Namaqualand Blanket is very special to me for many (mostly sentimental) reasons. It is meant to reflect the colours of the beautiful flowers that grace the Namaqualand ‘veld’ every Spring. I am delighted to share the pattern with you.
The Namaqualand blanket is very dear to my heart. I designed it for my South African crochet tour with Be Inspired last year and the colours and pattern are meant to reflect the beautiful flower-strewn fields that grace Namaqualand every spring.
I have walked around with hearts in my eyes ever since I first saw a sneak peek of the new Scheepjes Whirl. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a cake (or three)! I will admit that I shoved everything else aside as soon as the yarn arrived and have been playing (and playing, and playing) with it for the last 10 days. It has jolted me into a much-needed creative frenzy.
When Kate Towerzey and Diana Bensted asked me if I would open the Waltham Abbey Yarn show in January, I immediately said yes! I couldn’t quite believe that they had asked me, and kept thinking that they would say: “Actually, we’ve made a mistake. We are going to ask someone else.”
Sophie’s Universe is more than just a blanket. It is a journey of discovery and confidence-building. Written specifically for beginners, it contains step-by-step photos and hints to help you master the art of crochet. It brings me great joy to tell you that the Sophie’s Universe book is now available for sale.
