crochet mood blanket 2014 and a give away

dear diary,


The other week I very briefly talked about taking part in a crochet along organised by a friend of mine on Instagram. Even though I am not involved in the organising of this crochet along, I still wanted to give something back to this amazing group event, and after some deliberation I decided to start an on-line record of my mood blanket, consisting of photos and story for each week’s square and patterns that I have used.

I have created a dedicated menu button, with drop down’s for photos and patterns, at the top menu bar of this blog. This is where you can find my mood blanket story and also some of the patterns I will be using to make my squares. I will add to it on a weekly basis, so please feel free to visit and use this as re-source for your own squares if you wish.

Made with Loop’s Give Away!


To celebrate the start of a new creative year I have decided to throw a give away party this week!

To take part, all you have to do is subscribe to this blog via e-mail and leave a comment on this post telling me why you would like to win (don’t forget to include your e-mail address). The winner will be picked by a random number generator on Friday 17 January.


The prize: Anna Bag from Lola Loop’s 2013 book. A bright and cheerful bag knitted using Rowan Handknit Cotton. Nautical stripes in classic colours, set off by a sharp green top and gorgeous red leather handles, the bag is lined with cotton fabric and padded for stability, making it the perfect companion to carry all your essentials right through summer.To continue the summer nautical mood, you will also receive three brass and enamel bangles as shown in the top photo.

…and as if this isn’t exciting enough… as a surprise I’ll throw in a beautiful hank of yarn!!

So what are you waiting for…

I look forward to reading your replies! x
