Sublime review

I think sirdar have described it perfectly, it is simply sublime, beautifully soft, and amazing to crochet with, it’s just a real treat and an absolute pleasure to use.  

My only negative thing is that there are zero crochet patterns available for sublime, none.  

Each skein is 50g and 116m, which surprisingly goes a long way, I’ve so far managed to get 80% of a baby cardigan completed in sublime ‘piglet’ I’m currently just finishing the last little arm, then it’s the collar and edging, each skein is ยฃ5.29 I bought mine from Black sheep wools so for less than ยฃ11.00 I have a beautiful cashmere and merino silk cardigan to give as a gift, I’m so pleased with it.  

I’m not much of a rule breaker, I like to use a suggested pattern for the yarn I use or the other way around, I wanted to make a modern baby cardigan to suit the sublime but with zero crochet patterns I’ve used a Debbie bliss pattern


I’ve struggled with how the pattern is worded, I’ve had to read and reread some elements, put it down and come back again, but I’ve figured it and it’s stunning! I’ll have the last sleeve and collar finished by tomorrow so I’ll post a picture.   

Anyway, sirdar sublime, is sublime and a real treat to use!!

Weekly update ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

It’s  been a funny old week, lots of travelling for work… Over night stays etc. I quite like an overnight stay (sometimes) it means I get pure uninterrupted crochet time ๐Ÿ˜Š so this week I think I got over the trauma of finishing my Emma blanket, it’s still folded away in the place I left it, I can’t quite bring myself to either look at it or give it away just yet, a real labour of love.  But I’ve done a little more on my Stylecraft Lilly pond blanket, slowly but surely, I’m still on the first block just 2 more to go before I can move onto the more intricate bits!! 

During my hotel stays this week I managed to finish Stylecraft baby bunting for my besties beautiful little boy, it is designed by Attic 24, anyway he’s just moved into his nursery so I thought some bunting would be cute


Cute isn’t it!!!  And this morning I’ve just started part of my mums Christmas present its a stunning jumper (oversized) designed by Frank and Olive 


I’ve only done the first 11 rows, plenty more to do!! But the yarn is beautiful! I’ve never crocheted using Aran before but this is lovely, it’s grey with speckles of mint green, black and baby pink it’s a real pleasure to use it is Debbie Bliss Donegal Aran tweed, I’d recommend it for sure!! 

Next week we start Sue Pinner carousel blanket CAL!! I’m using Stylecraft UK again for this one and all my colour way is sorted and in order and ready to start!!

I’ve got a busy weekend coming up, I’ve got crochet brocade group tomorrow morning which I’m looking forward to, then in the adternoon I’m going to the sewing and craft fair sponsored by hobbycraft at Trafford Manchester, the Sunday I’m taking my mum and my beautiful daughter to the emmerdale studio experience in Leeds, very excited!!!

Anyhoo!!! Some exciting news, well I think so anyway, I’m getting a new logo!!! I’ve instructed Seven seven design agency local to me, and this week they sent through my suggested new logos, oh my!!!! I got pretty emotional looking at them!! I work full time, but crochet is my passion and I’ve got plans for the Wee house of crochet, and the logo suggestions just made it feel so real! I’m so overwhelmed with them, I’m not sure which to choose, I’m sure I’ll share it with you soon though!  I’ve also been looking for a pattern for a while, I know what I want, and the colour way but I’ve not been inspired by any patterns, sooooooo I’m in the process of designing it myself, of course it’s all on paper at the moment and I’d have make it first, which could take some time given my current workload! Once done I’ll share it with you also.  Anyway best get some work done!!
Happy hooking xx ๐Ÿ˜˜
