Fabulous Crochet Sanctuary weekend with Lost in knit 🧶

Hello! So I’m still recovering, yes I know it’s Wednesday, but I got back from the Crochet Sanctuary Sunday night and Monday morning I was straight back out on the road until last night, so I’m a little tired!

We are always so apprehensive prior to a Crochet Sanctuary whether it’s a day or weekend, especially when we have new people! You think it would be the other way around but we don’t sleep much!

So our theme for the weekend was ‘home sweet home’ we thought with people all back from holiday, kids back at school it’s now people start organising their homes, decorating etc and getting ready for the dreaded C! Well I am anyway!

My summer house is finished!! My own little she shed!

Sorry for the huge spam on pics but I am so happy with it! My husband had it built within a few hours, painted, he bought me some tub chairs and a foot stool, he’s put electricity inside, lighting in and out! I love it!

We’ve also been decorating the downstairs loo, hall stairs and landing, our abbys bedroom, new carpets, so it’s been busy!

So back to the Crochet Sanctuary, home sweet home! On the Friday night we provided everyone with Hoooked rugs everyone needs a crocheted rug right?! Mine will eventually go in my she shed as soon as I have weaved my end! The rugs are using T-shirt yarn, which can be a little hard on the hands but they really are worth it, with them being so big, nobody finished them over the weekend, so I’ve no pics!

On the Saturday morning both lynda and I designed some plant pot cosy’s lynda designed bunny rabbit ears and I designed a cover with a leaf, it wasn’t what I had planned for, I wanted something rose gold in colour with a geometric look, but I couldn’t get the soft fun and catona to work together for a geometric design, but I’m pleased with what I came up with

And a good few people finished theirs!

On the Saturday afternoon we had Emily from Lost in knit Emily is also the yarn guru for knitcraft / hobbycraft. We work closely with Emily for our hobbycraft designs but it’s mainly all on email, so this weekend it was really nice to get to know her, and chat with her, she’s very clever, knits Crochet’s and she does the most amazing macrame!!!! So we had a a macrame workshop!

I’ve got to say I am mortified!!! Because I could not and still can’t get the hang of it! I’m not giving up though! Our guests loved it, they enjoyed doing something different and learning something new, I don’t think anyone had any experience of macrame at all! Normally our guest designers run their workshop from 14:00 until 18:00 on the Saturday, but with it being such a big project Emily literally worked the usual workshop time, and the evening and the whole of the next day too! But look at the results!

It was such a good weekend.

We also had Lexie at the event who runs the ‘Crochet for beginners’ group on Facebook, Lexie very kindly gave us a review, on YouTube!!!! Our very first video review, you can watch it here Lexie loves crochet review

Anyway a few more pics!

We haven’t got anymore weekend spaces left at all until 2021, but we do have some day spaces! The Crochet Sanctuary

We’ve already planned out Christmas!!! And we have some fabulous workshops! Exciting!!!!!

Anyway happy hooking!!!

The August Crochet Sanctuary Crochet day – and a free pattern!

Well it was lovely, it feels like we’ve had such a long break since June. We had so many new people! And we were amazed at how many people had travelled so far, some had stayed over the night before at Cranage hall, some had stayed at an air bnb and we even had one lady who had made the most of her trip and had turned it into a break away in her camper.

Our morning workshop was C2C wall hangings, @lyndascraftroom and I designed one each. We used Rico creative cotton in an Aran weight, and whilst some had crocheted c2c before we had some newbies, but the colour changing was new for some. We’ve decided to link the patterns free on our blogs if you would like it cs-c2c-wall-hangings.pdf

They’re just nice and simple but lovely to hang in your craft room!

We’ve also had lots of bookings since then, our crochet days don’t go as quickly as the weekends, so we’ve always got a good few crochet days available, we’ve just sold our last March 2020 place this weekend. We’ve still got a few left, have a nosey

Also!!! One of our lovely ladies asked why we don’t offer vouchers or gift cards, well to be honest we hadn’t thought about it, so I had a look at our website and actually the option is there! So we’ve added it on! Gift cards

I think that’s about it for now!

Happy hooking!

Sorry 😐 I’ve been pants at blogging!

But!!! In all fairness to me there’s been a lot going on! The day after my last blog post my baby turned 16, yes 16, man I feel old!!! As part of her birthday she begged us for a kitten, so that’s been chaotic, on parr with a newborn!! But here is our new addition to the family, her name is Luna, and she is a ragdoll x tortie, she’s crazy, and I’m not impressed as I knew that kittens liked yarn but not to the extent she does!

Whilst I was away in sunny Cape Verde the knitcraft granny square cal was running, my design was on day 24 (I think) I was a bag of nerves as everyone else’s blocks were great, but I think people quite liked mine, here it is along with a few other versions of other crocheters that actually crocheted my design! It never gets old ha!!

Shortly after Abby’s birthday we went to Amanda’s new shop craftopia to help her with some unpacking, the shop is going to be fabulous, and Amanda seems so much happier, and she loved Sophie’s universe!!! I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this Sophie I just love it! Amanda’s shop is in ingleton and it’s beautiful, such a nice place

I always feel a little lost once I’ve finished a big project, I did have a cal design that @lyndascraftroom and I have been working on for knitcraft, but weird being a bit free to do what I fancy and focus on some of the Crochet Sanctuary designs for August and September weekends, which are now done!!

I finally got around to making my ufo!!! My godson Freddie was having his bedroom decorated in a space theme and I thought it would go fab in there

How fab is that?! And it took me one whole Sunday!

After that at work we decided that we’re running a Macmillan coffee morning, I’ve never been able to go before but this time I’ve booked in my diary, I’m donating some velvet hair scrunchies and also this red sparrow blanket below to raffle, the photos don’t do it justice at the moment, I’m really enjoying it, once it’s finished I’ll be adding a neon pink border with Pom Poms!

Right, what else have I been doing….what am I allowed to show you?!

Oh!!! I was clearing my craft room and found some chunky James c Brett marble, so I whipped up a quick lakeside loops cowl! I love it! And I’ll be making more!

Hats!!!! I’ve been making so many hats!!! I bought a fabulous pattern for a cable hat that works up quickly, then an influx of friends and family asked for me to make them one, so hats! I do love a good hat!

I’ve done quite a bit really haven’t I?! My friend, one of my oldest friends Sam asked me to make her and her son a hat, so I never need much encouragement, so I made them one each, she also mentioned that she would like to learn to crochet, so I sent her along with her hats, the little box of crochet Learn to crochet box, she’s possibly regretting mentioning it now! But she got it and was over the moon, so you never know! We could possibly have another hooker in the making!

I think that’s all I’m allowed to show you for now, behind all this lynda and I are designing for the crochet Sanctuary weekends, testing patterns for the weekends, we’ve been working on the knitcraft cal, and some other bits and pieces too.

Ooooooooh!!!! One biggish bit of news!!! My ‘The Wee House is Crochet’ gets delivered on Monday!!!!! I have a den (converted garage) where I work, but it also stores all of my crates for the Sanctuary, we have a spare bedroom, but that’s full of sanctuary stuff too and it’s where our deliveries normally stay, but recently I’ve accumulated so much that Lynda is having to store boxes at her house. We’ve spoken about a storage unit but it’s just not feasible, so!!! I bought a summer house!!! Mr H is going to insulate it for me, and make sure it’s completely secure and watertight and it’s basically going to store everything!!! I’m so excited!!!

It’s only little but it’s all I need for now! This is the picture I pinched from the website, I’m going to make curtains and bunting and I’ve already got a sign! Ha!! Anyway more of that to come next time, which won’t be long I promise!

Happy hooking!!!

Velvet Scrunchies – Free Pattern

Velvet Scrunchies

Its been a while again! In all fairness to me I have been away on holiday for 2 weeks, and the build up before going was quite busy. I didn’t get much crochet done on holiday either! Anyway, I am back!

Whilst I was away I had noticed a couple of other crocheters crocheting velvet scrunchies. My daughter is a massive fan of the old 90’s hair scrunchie, to be honest I cannot believe they are back in fashion!! She had spotted me looking at these velvet scrunchies and didn’t believe me when I said I would make her some.

We went to our local Hobbycraft yesterday for our knitcraft social, and I spotted some Velvet yarn she chose the silver colour, it is only £4.10 per ball and I have literally used 50% of it and so far made 4 scrunchies. I have designed 2 simple patterns for you below. Abby said the bigger the scrunchie the better! So heres 2:

Medium sized Scrunchie

Materials

20g (to be on the safe side) James C Brett Flutterby chunky

6mm hook

darning needle for sewing in ends

scissors

eleastic hair band

Round 1 – Work 50 dc around the elastic band (its a bit of a squeeze, just keep pushing the sts to the side) join with a slst to the first dc. (50dc)

Round 2 – Ch3 (counts as 1tr), work 1tr in the same st, work 2tr in each st around, Join with slst to top of beg 3rd ch (100 tr) fasten off work and weave in loose ends

Tadah!!!

Supersize Scrunchie

Materials

30g James C Brett Flutterby Chunky

6mm Crochet Hook

Darning needle for loose ends

scissors

Elastic hair band

Round 1 – Work 50 dc around the elastic band (its a bit of a squeeze, just keep pushing the sts to the side) join with a slst to the first dc. (50dc)

Round 2 – Ch3 (counts as 1tr), work 1tr in the same st, work 1tr in next st, *work 2tr, 1tr in each st around* Join with slst to top of beg 3rd ch (75 tr) join with slst in to top of beg ch3.

Round 3 – Ch3 (counts as 1tr), work 1tr in the same st, work 1tr in next st, *work 2tr, 1tr in each st around* Join with slst to top of beg 3rd ch join with slst in to top of beg ch3, fasten off and weave in loose ends

Supersize Scrunchie

So there you have it, tonnes of scrunchies out of one ball of yarn!

C2C Preemie Baby Blanket

Good morning!! Last night I crocheted a Preemie Baby Blanket, just something nice and simple, you know, good TV crochet!

My blanket measures 12×12, dinky I know, but its the perfect size for a 1-2lb baby, just perfect. I am a fairly fast crocheter so I did complete this in under 3 hours. Yours may measure more or less, as we all have different tensions.

You can use any dk weight yarn, and a 4mm hook and I only used about 70g, for this pattern I have used Stylecraft Bambino which is super soft, it splits a little but the stitch definition and the texture of the yarn out weighs the fact it splits.

You can also make your blanket as big as you fancy by starting to decrease as and when the height/width of your blanket is how you want it.

If you have never tried C2C before, it stands for Corner to Corner, where we start in one corner and work along the diagonal to the other corner.

Row 1 – Ch6 (counts as a Ch3 and 1TR) 1tr in the fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2ch to the end. Turn work (1 pixel has been created)

Row 2 – Ch6 (counts as ch3 and 1tr), 1tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2ch (another pixel created), sl st in the space created by the ch3 at the top of the pixel of row 1, ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as the sl st, turn work (2 pixels created)

Row 3 – Ch6 (counts as ch3 and 1tr), 1 tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2 ch to complete another pixel, sl st into the ch3 space at the top of the last pixel from Row two, ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as the sl st, sl st in ch3 space at the top of the next pixel, ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as the sl st, turn work. (3 pixels)

Row 4 – Ch6 (counts as ch3 and 1tr), 1tr in fourth ch from the hook and in each of the next 2ch to complete another pixel, sl st in the ch3 space at the top of the last pixel worked from previous row, *ch3, 3tr in same ch3 space as sl st, sl st in ch3 space at the top of the next pixel; rep from * until you have worked a sl st in the ch3 sp of the last block of the previous row, ch3, 3tr in the same ch3 sp as the sl st, turn work. (4 pixels)

Row 5-19 Repeat Row 4 (19 pixels)

We will now start to decrease our work on each row, from now on the number of pixels you work will become less

Row 20 – Sl st into each of the next 3tr, sl st into ch3 space, *ch3, (3tr in the same ch3 space as the sl st, sl st in ch3 space at the top of the next pixel) rep from * until you have worked a sl st in the ch3 sp of the last pixel of the previous row, ch3, 3tr in the same ch3 sp as the sl st, turn work.

Row 21 – Repeat Row 20 until you finish your last pixel. Do not fasten off.

Edging

Round 1 – Ch1 and work 1dc in tr, and 2dc into the side of each pixel, the main thing is to make sure you dc’s are spaced evenly, I included a ch2 for the corners, slst into the Ch1 to join.

Round 2 – *Ch3, Slst into the 1st ch (picot created), sk the next st, slst into the next* Repeat all the way around joining with a slst into the dc from Round 1

Happy Hooking

Too many exciting things!

Hi!!!! It’s an exciting day today!! Tell you more in a while!

So what have I been working on?? Well I’ve been firing away on Sophie’s universe, I love it!!

Look at those beautiful little bobbles! I can now reveal, that I am making this for Amanda Bloom from Little Box of Crochet, she has finally bitten the bullet and she’s opening a gorgeous little shop in Ingleton called Craftopia, she has a beautiful bay window and she’s been so busy making things to put in her shop window that she asked @lyndascraftroom to make some amigurumi items and me to make her a Sophie’s universe. And doesn’t she just choose the most beautiful colours?!

I’m on round 76, but also working on designs for knitcraft Christmas!! How exciting!

In the meantime the new not so Little Box of crochet arrived last week, and I love it!!!! I’m not quite ready to share a full pic of my market bag! (Which is actually going to be a beach bag) as I still need to add embellishments to it, but I love it!!

I’m so pleased Amanda has gone for bi-monthly boxes, the projects can be much bigger which I like!

Anyway!!!! @lyndascraftroom and I were taking last week, and Lynda pointed out that we have never done a Halloween themed crochet Sanctuary, she’s quite right! So we got talking and ideas started flowing…..we’ve only gone and managed to secure Halloween weekend 2020!!! Like OMG!!!

We’ve managed to secure Esme from Red Sparrow Crochet I love her designs!!! She does a lot for magazines and yarn companies like scheepjes look at some of her work!

She’s fab! So that’s a big bit of exciting news, the next bit is, we have managed to secure a psychic medium paranormal investigator for Halloween night at the crochet Sanctuary!!! Andy W Jones is a medium and he has worked for tv and radio stations in the uk and us for 20 years and we have him coming to the crochet Sanctuary!! How exciting!

We only announced it today, and we’ve literally got about 7 weekend spaces! So if you fancy it here’s the link Halloween crochet weekend

Put it this way, I was on the phone to Andy last night, at that point he didn’t know anything about what we do, where we do it or what room, and he asked me a question that only someone who has been in the Banting suite at Cranage hall could know, it made my hair stand on end literally!!!!

That’s my news! Getting better at blogging weekly, trying hard to keep on top of my wips!

Hope you’re good

Wool Monty show!

Helloooo you! I’m taking a break from designing Christmas and crocheting Christmas! Seriously, it’s June, we’ve not even had a summer yet here, the weather is proper pants!

Anyway, on Sunday a group of us who all met at the crochet Sanctuary met up at Wool Monty in Sheffield.

We had a great day!! I had read that the event was packed and there were hour long waits for food, but when we got there it was fab! It may of helped with it being Father’s Day, Sunday and the last day, we didn’t have to wait and had a great time.

We met Lisa-Lou yarn dyer and fellow hooker from Made by Penguins and this girl knows marketing, all you had to do was take and share a selfie tagging in Made by penguins and you got a free bag!

That’s Lynda and Lisa-Lou, she was so lovely!! When we mentioned we were from the crochet Sanctuary she said she’d heard of us and follows us, and she’d like to offer us free bags for our guest!!! This is unheard of!! We need ever get freebies, I’ve heard some crochet retreats get free yarn, but we’ve never been given free yarn or anything really, other than knitcraft, they do support us when we ask but we kind of see that as payment for our designs, we have also been given a pile of 10% off at blacksheep wools and some after parties, so to be offered bags is just massive for us!

Anyway I was on the hunt for some watermelon dyed yarn, I failed miserably. I bought some beautiful neon (glow in the dark) yarn from Lisa Lou! I had to get it wound into cake though as it kind of unravelled and I knew I’d be in trouble if I didn’t cake it before I got home, there were some ladies from the knitting and crochet guild winding skeins for £1 winner winner!!

Is so bought some Lana Bou it was £15 for a lucky dip, how ace is all of this!!

I am such a yarn sniffer!!! So the perfect postcard ever!

I also bought this beautiful yarn from Diana home crafts now!!! This is the yarn I saw online in America, and when we went on the yarn dyeing workshop I tried to get the same effect, I didn’t do badly for my first time but this is the one!!!

Isn’t it a beaut!!!!! I’m going to use it for a one skein scarf designed by Lynne Rowe she wore one at our crochet sanctuary last year and it was beautiful so I bought the pattern, this is too beautiful to make socks!!

I’ve just finished work today, looked at my phone and thought what the hell! @lyndascraftroom has put a giveaway on Instagram when we have crochet days or weekends our guests always leave with a gift bag, we quite often have left overs so we’re doing a giveaway, you just need to find us on Instagram @thecrochetsanctuary follow us and tag a pal!

Anyway I’m getting good at keeping on top of my blog don’t you think?!

Best fo move my butt

Little update…..and steps?

I’ve not really got an awful lot to show you really, I’ve been busy this week crocheting Sophie’s universe, and designing some bits for knitcraft.

But I actually have a top secret order! And the colours were chosen but the person I’m making it for. I would never if chosen them, but they are beautiful!

I only started this on Sunday evening after the crochet Sanctuary last week, and I’m hooked, I’m already on Part 7, long way to go yet, but it’s a good start.

Aren’t the colours fabulous?

I’m also using my new stitch markers, from @mrsgmakes Mrs G comes to the crochet Sanctuary and she has started making these amazing stitch markers

I love them, there’s even one that looks like a mini schnauzer to me. Anyway should you wish to buy some you can find her on Instagram, you won’t be disappointed.

On a more serious note……. don’t you just wish that crochet burned more calories than it does? Well I’ve recently lost a stone on a silly diet, I’ve so much more to lose, but I want to do it healthily and I found out about a team on Facebook called TeamRH, I’ve really been enjoying it, I’m moving more, eating better and I was feeling good until………I thought I was smashing 15,000 steps a day according to my Apple Watch, my husband bought me my watch and it cost him an arm and a leg. Anyway I may be slow but, I only twigged last week that my Apple Watch has been tracking my stitches as steps!!!!! And I can’t change it, of course I can take it off while I crochet, but then I’d forget to put it back on, and also I can’t wear it to bed to monitor my sleep (something i struggle with) because it needs charging every night. So I’ve been hunting for a device that can where but not on my wrist, plus my husband would be fuming if I bought another tracker. If he knew it was a tracker……. anyway!! After a bit of research I found a company called Bella Beat oh Lordy!!!

It’s wearable as a necklace, brooch, bracelet (depending on the style you buy) and it’s absolutely bloody gorgeous!! It tracks sleep, meditation, steps, monthly cycles, stress levels, and it doesn’t look like a tracker, it doesn’t need charging, just battery replacing every 6 months, which means I can keep wearing my watch to please my husband but know that even when I’m crocheting it’s spot on, so I ordered this!

I’m so excited!! It’s coming from the US but it landed in London today so I’m hoping to have it by Tuesday, so once I’ve given it a go I’ll let you know what it’s like! Anyway, if you fancy ordering one then here’s $25 off! Click here

I’m so excited!

Oooh our guest designer from the crochet Sanctuary posted a podcast today and it’s pretty much about the crochet Sanctuary! Well worth a watch especially if you fancy a laugh about the girl that wasn’t a ghost, yes you read this right, worth a watch! Podcast

Anyway I’m off to bed, I’m off to wool monty tomorrow!

Happy Hooking!

What a fabulous weekend!

We always get a little nervous before a crochet Sanctuary day or weekend, we get so excited and then when the day comes it’s like…..’what if it’s not as good as we thought?’ But it really was!

Our guests received a scheepjes project bag, which included a 10% off at Blacksheep wools, a scheepjes diamanté yarn slice necklace, face masks, bath bombs, pens, stitch markers etc here’s the fabulous Paul helping us to pack them!

We started off our evening on the Friday by giving everyone a kit for the scheepjes first shawl. These don’t actually come in kits so we just put one together in an organza bag with the after party pattern. So I did finish mine weeks ago but I couldn’t show you! I can now do here it is

Yep that’s me! And below is lynda!

We had one super fast lady Tracy who actually finished hers by Sunday morning!

How pleased does she look?!

On the Saturday morning we started off with a design from myself and Lynda, it was the lotus flower cushion using tapestry crochet, the yarn used was knitcraft in the zone which I love!!!! It’s very synthetic, I bet there’s not one natural fibre in there at all, but it’s so soft, and so nice to crochet with, but great for bags and cushions as it crochets up really sturdy but soft at the same time. If you’ve never tried it I would definitely encourage you to give it a go it’s a real pleasure to use.

Now the paid pattern is available on our Etsy shop which again I cannot link for some reason!! There will be a free pattern available on the Hobbycraft blog soon though if you don’t want a pdf version.

After lunch we had a workshop hosted by Zeens & Roger I’ve been watching her podcasts for quite a while, so to actually have her there in person was fab! She provided us all with the 3 strikes bag, which is a c2c project, we had never had a c2c workshop and we had quite a few c2c virgins there so it was fab! Now I have crocheted in c2c but I’ve never known how I should change colour, it turns out there is no special way, it’s a pain in the arse with the ends but…..so worth it!!! I finished my bag!

I love it!!! I improvised a little and just did one button, but it was really relaxing, and thoroughly enjoyed.

On the Saturday night, to tie in with our theme ‘crochet girls night in’ we had movie night!!!!

I actually think we’ll make this a regular thing, we already had a white pull down screen in the room, so it was just a matter of projecting it onto the wall, there was something so nice about us all being in our pj’s crocheting, munching popcorn and singing along to dirty dancing!! I loved it!!

Then our last day….was finishing projects here’s a few more pictures

It was just fab! Now we have a bit of wait to the end of August for our crochet day, then mid September for our next weekend….time flies way too quickly!

Tie backs and yarny buys!

I was going to save this for next week, but I’m currently working away from home in Harrogate, staying at faulty towers, it’s 00:34 and I’ve just got back to my room after a false fire alarm, I wouldn’t of been surprised if it had been a real one, this place is so badly maintained!

Anyway, I’m wide awake now so thought, ooh blog!

I finished an order I received from my cousins wife, she had asked for a giraffe tie back and a zebra tie back, I did share a pic of the zebra a few blog posts ago, but he’s now finished!

As you can tell, I do not have one single pair of curtains in my house, at all, so blinds had to do!

I’ve also finished the giraffe

Who has super long legs, both of these were designed by Nice and Cosee crochet she has so many tie back patterns! I’m pleased with these though, super cute

Which means!!! I’ve started my medium sized Ubuntu by scheepjes! I’ve really gotten stuck in and I’ve just this minute finished all of the diamonds to part 3, although not many pics

I’m really enjoying it, I’ve just to finish the main. Colour part on each diamond before I can move into the half diamonds.

I’m also working on some Christmas designs for Knitcraft with @lyndascraftroom it doesn’t half feel weird crocheting Christmas in June! But we’ve been given a brand new yarn to use and it’s lovely, with plenty of colours too! But more of that when I’m allowed.

And then there’s our designs for The crochet Sanctuary but I can’t show you those either! Not until next week anyway, I’m mega excited for the crochet Sanctuary this weekend. We’ve got our guest designer Zeens and Roger who’s work and podcasts I’ve admired for a while, so it will be nice to actually meet Rosina in person, and of course work on one of her designs. I’m so looking forward to meeting up with our regular hookers ha!! And some new people too! We’ve a couple of surprises for them this weekend too!

And I didn’t think I’d be saying this but…….2020 has almost sold out!!! We’ve literally got 5 weekend spaces left for April, 5! That April we have Lynne Rowe from the wool nest (on Instagram) hosting our guest workshop, Lynne did a workshop for us last year, and we enjoyed it so much we’ve booked her again for next year. We’ve lots of crochet days available though, which is good, as although it’s nice being sold out it’s nice to have spaces to fill!

Ooooh I’ve been shopping! I really should just stop! However I am currently waiting on a delivery for this! I’ve pinched this pic from Etsy it’s not mine!

So lynda bought this, when you pull the cow down it plays a tune!!! From the X files!!!! It’s amazing! And it’s bigger than I thought too. So I’m currently waiting delivery!

I’ve also bought……and I’ve pinched this pic from Woolly Mama Yarns I can never add a link for this on Etsy, so I apologise, she has a yarn club called back to the 80’s, I could not resist this!

It’s so watermelon! And it’s actually called ‘I carried a watermelon’!! I’m so excited, lord knows what I’m going to do with it, I’m hoping it’ll be there when I get home tomorrow as it’s been dispatched.

I’ve also pre-ordered some books!

This is by the authors of dragons and unicorns and I loved it so much I couldn’t resist!

And!

Who doesn’t love Mabel bunny and co? Wool Couture are releasing a book!

Again this is pre-order, and should be September, literally so excited!

I suppose I’d best get some sleep need to be up in just 5 hours!

Happy Hooking!!
