2 bandanas = 1 shawl 

It is still quite cold and stormy in Belfast in February so I knitted a comfy and warm shawl to wait for spring to come.  I really liked the design for the “say wool be there” bandana but I knew it was going to be to small as it is and I would never wear…

Pom-pom clutch 

I added some pom-poms to the Lil’ hold tight clutch from Wool and the gang.  I really like the woven stitch : it feels so sturdy.  I also had a strap from on old broken bag that I can reuse with it ! 

Cable knit pillows

We got a new sofa a few months back so I wanted to make some super soft pillows to make it ours. I used a ball of sexy crazy wool for each pillow : one in stonewach blue and one in sherpa blue. I bought the wool during a sale on the Wool and the…

From sweater to maxi basket

I knitted the Cocoon sweater a while back in March. It was my first ever knitted garment. Even if I was quite proud of it, I have not worn it at all : It is quite heavy and not easy to move in. I thought it was a shame not to make better use of this lovely…

Blue squirrel

With the rest of the grey wool from my summer cardigan, I have knitted a simple square and embroidered a squirrel with big cross-stitches to make a pillow for our new sofa. I really like this model from Erin Black. She used Tunisian crochet but I did not have enough wool to use this technique…

Summer cardigan 

The first time I went through the pages of the Anna Wilkinson crochet book my mum gave me back in April, the first pattern I was attracted too was this lace cardigan. I used some cotton from Wool and the gang to make mine. Compared to the original pattern : I did not add the…

Some baskets

We moved flat and there is not much storage space in the new flat ! To make things more organise while we are waiting to get some furniture, I have made some crochet baskets to tidy the bathroom.  I used the hanging toy basket and the structured basket from this book :  I used a…

Coco marinière

I love stripes and I could not resist to get the Coco marinière from Wool and the Gang when it went on sale. I chose the coral crush and midnight blue colors.   The weather is Belfast is not warm enought to wear it but I will wait patiently !

Chunky crochet necklaces

I came across some nice necklaces on Pinterest and on this blog. I had some fabric yarn left from my cocoon sweater so I crocheted a couple of them.     The first one is inpired by this pattern :    And the second one is from this pattern :    I did not like very much the chain so I added some colourful…

Cocoon sweater

Both my grandmothers are fabulous knitters and they taught me how to knit when I was a kid. I liked crocheting  better so I pursued crocheting instead and forgot all about knitting. Recently, I went back to knitting and I really enjoy it. I have refreshed my knowledge with the help of my mother in…
