The first week of December 2006 I finally decided on what I was going to do for my mum for Christmas, a Round Ripple Afghan. I knew it was a herculean task when I decided to do it, but somehow I managed to make a queen sized Purple Round Ripple afghan in 3 weeks. Lets say I didn’t crochet for about a month after this as my hand was very sore. I got it washed, dried, wrapped and under the tree 1 hour before my my mum came to visit, and she did all the right oohs and ahhhs it deserved, I felt very content that afternoon. The pattern I used was from Sew on Fire Ministries for a baby afghan, I used various DK weight acrylics and a 4.5mm hook.
I made this wrap of Solomons Knots or Lover Knots for My Mum. Purple is her favourite colour in the whole wide world, so I made it in some Purpley Grey (can’t see much purple here, but it really was there) mohair acrylic.
The Peonie Duffle Bag is based on the pattern designed by C L Halvorson. I did make a fairly major change, instead of using the Daisy square pattern, I went with the Peonie pattern, which I found in 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton. I find Jan Eatons instructions to be really clear and very pretty, this is my go to book when I am making throws and afghans.
Bunny in a Dress was made at my daughters request, bunny now has a couple of dresses, all the same, but using different colours and different buttons. The pattern for Bunny in a dress is found in Mr Funky’s Super Crochet Wonderful, by Narumi Ogawa
I am a prolific crocheter. There I have said it. I love to crochet, knit, spin and dye, I have found that short of giving people a link to my flikr account or get people to join Ravelry.com (which I think anyone and everyone who likes yarn craft should do) I had no way of showing my completed crochet garments and bits and bobs.
