This week saw one WIP being completed fully-the socks using Drops Fabel yarn are completely finished now after being blocked. Since last week the weather has changed a lot, the temperature has halved and it is tipping with rain compared to the slightly too warm sunshine we had a week ago. That means that the…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-28th June
After last week’s DIY sock blockers (which worked superbly), I thought I’d give Mr C another ‘being married to a craftaholic’ test and asked him to make me a crochet blocking board.

Yarn Chicken is not a game for the faint hearted, but many of us knitters and crocheters find ourselves embroiled in a battle against the yarn towards the end of a project. It’s a game I’ve found myself playing a few times in the last couple of weeks, and I think I’ve finally figured out…… Continue reading 5 Rules For Playing Yarn Chicken
