Crochet, January recap

January recap

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a lovely month. January flew by, and it’s now already February?!

I thought it’d be a nice, to recap on things I did in January. On instagram, photos tend to get lost, especially if you have a lot of photos; it’s no fun to go all the way back to the beginning. This way, I’d be able to have photos all in one place, to look back on.

In January, I learnt to Tunisian crochet. It was surprisingly a lot easier than I expected, but now I’m a little lost on what stitches to do next… I’m a little bored of block colours!

I also learnt to make hats on a knitting loom… I love these hats, but I have to stop myself getting carried away!

I made polymer clay handles for my crochet hooks!

I started a year long CAL. My temperature blanket, which I’m managing to stay updated on. You can find me checking the temperature a billion times a day(ok, not realistically that much, but still, a lot!) I’ll have an update on my progress, soon!

I continued making ‘The Art of Crochet’ squares; I love not having control of the colours, it makes life easier for me and I’m learning new colour combinations, ones I wouldn’t dare think of before!

 

Last but not least… I started this blog! I feel like I haven’t done very many posts as I’d of liked to. I think I need to plan more and prep them, at least if they’re drafted, they should hopefully get done! If you have any ideas, or anything you’d like me to talk about, please leave your suggestions and I’d be more than willing to have a go 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed my blog so far, I think as much as I would like to have a lot of content, it’s also probably better to have good quality content, than a lot of it… what do you think? It also does take a lot longer than you’d think.

Thanks for sticking with me in January!

  1. Gorgeous! I’m making a temperature blanket using a version of a granny square for each day. I’m also doing a sky scarf, but with a bobble for each day. What gauge does the moss stitch turn out to be? I had trouble choosing a stitch or pattern for my sky scarf because it seems like it would get too long with one row for each day. Maybe next year I’ll need to do a blanket instead!
