2018 : Raffia Clutch
Inspired by the clutch bags popping up all over town. This simple design from WATG was the perfect project to work on over the festive season - it's okay to take your crochet to lunch with friends?
2018 : Boho Purse
A boho / hippie bag whipped up by our 13yo. How clever and satisfying to create your own accessories. A great life lesson in this time of fast fashion and instant gratification. This is her favourite summer bag.
2018 : Hedgehogs
How could I resist. So supper cute. There are a few patterns on Ravelry but I had always loved the one by Purl Soho.
2018 : chunky knit cardigan
A very satisfying quick knit - especially with rainy & chilly winter days in October!
The construction was very cool. Start at the bottom and knit up to under arm. Knit sleeves separately then join and continue to knit yoke with decreases. Take care on the decreases. Lots of techniques to learn and practice.
2018 : crochet string bag
Crochet string bags always reminds me of my Grandma. She was a country lady who we adore visiting. In summer it was HOT so she would swap her knitting for crochet and cotton. There was never a time where she would sit and not be busy with a project.
