My Name is Mrs Craft and I am Addicted to Crochet

There. I said it. Tonight I have had 3 hours of uninterrupted crochet time and I’ve only packed up because I have work tomorrow. I’m up to the start of round 12 of Sophie’s Garden and I just want to keep going because I’m so excited to see how the next part will turn out. It’s almost hypnotic to look at, though I keep finding slight imperfections (I wish I was better at slip stitching to join rounds).

The lilac yarn in round 5 is slightly fuzzy which I hope isn’t going to wreck the appearance of the whole thing. It will need blocking at the end too but I quote like it so far. I used a different lilac for round 11 and it has a smoother finish.

Let’s hope I can keep up the enthusiasm until it’s finished!
(All of my posts seem to be about crochet lately, partly because I have done loads of it and also because the cards I’ve been working on haven’t been sent yet so I can’t share for a few more days!)
What are you working on at the moment?

Proudly linking up this post to Wool On Sundays.

  1. It looks beautiful! I love your color choices, they go so well together. My latest project is an afghan with a zig-zag pattern: \/\/\/ Each point has two popcorn stitches. This is the second one I’m making using this particular pattern.

  2. That’s so pretty, and although I can’t actually see any in your pics, I like the odd imperfection, it gives things a more handmade feel to them. Sometimes things can be too uniform. However this is going to be stunning and I can’t wait to see the finished project ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am working on spiderman bits for my nephews birthday this week.

      1. Chocolate Baileys?! If you are drinking that you won’t want to spill it on your lovely crochet. Obviously I may not have thought this through completely…

  3. Love , love, loving your project! Your colors are amazing and this pattern is fascinating! I’m so anxious to begin on a sweet shawl for a Wild Child and a set of mittens (maybe they will be finished by winter).

  4. I’m working on 2 things at the moment, Mrs Craft! – my patience while I can’t do any needle felting, and my hubby, to let me have a new puppy! Neither is going very well. Getting my crafting fix seeing all the lovely things my fellow crafty bloggers are making!
