Hot of the Hook

I’m learning new Crochet acronyms so here is my latest HOTHDSC_0791

If there was Ginny’s Yarn Along to join in with I would, but sadly and completely understandably Ginny has decided to step back gracefully. I just love Ginny’s blog, her photographs are superb and I have to admit to being just a little bit in love with her and all of her most delightful children.

A major WIP, in progress for about 3 years has just been finished – a double bedspread with a Mexican theme.

Crochet Slang

This fulfils another one for  17 for 2017 challenge (12 WIPS finished) [Update: Oooops that is misleading, sorry, I have now done 6 out of the target of 12 WIPS, this one shown is one of the 6 and moves me closer to the target of 12 done in the year]

I YAP a lot!

If you would like to share a current HOTH, CAL, FOTH, JOTH, PHD, YAP, WIVP or WIP. I’d love to see them!

Bedspread for Little Miss M

A finished project is something to celebrate!marlarugThis one started out as one of the throws I was making to go beneath my favourite painting, ‘Summer Flight’ by Carolyne KardiambI was trying to choose colour and design to compliment the picture and go over the back of the sofa beneath.  Not a good idea as it turns out –  all the ripple designs I tried seemed to fight with the picture – they were not happy together. mblnktBut experimenting was enjoyable and resulted in quite a few cushions and a couple of throws that have been put to good use elsewhere.

mwrapThis one is much loved by Smokey the kitten. It has now become a bedspread for Little Miss M.

It took some time to work out how to do the edging, but with crochet this is quick and easy.

Filling in the rippled ends took a bit of working out. I just sort of made it up as I went along, but I think it worked out well enough in the end.mb3Smokey and the girls think so anyway.emkt
