Crochet Crazy

I think I can safely say my craft of the year so far is crochet :o). Lots of stars, lots of headbands, a few chokers, and lots of free form to practise how it looks. I thought I'd have a go at a hexagon as I'd already done the star. This is the second attempt as the other wouldn't lay flat as there were too many on the round. Really pleased with this...just need to learn how to write a pattern now!

This is another free form piece. Love this too.

And look at these! These are from patterns - the heart from ravelry and the other from this lovely book. I saw this on Soulemama's website, so went to investigate it. It's a fab little book with lovely gift ideas in it.


Once I'd done the practice mesh piece I thought I might as well start on a proper scarf and very addictive it was too. Hopefully I'll be able to add this to the gift pile for this year. What crafts are you crazy about so far this year?

That crochet looks so neat!

I seem to have a bit of everything on the go at the moment, spinning, knitting, crochet! Jack of all-trades, master of none, that's me!
