I love little crochet projects. The crochet washcloth patterns are one of the best things to try out when you are first starting to crochet. They are smaller in size….and square. You can practice keeping your edges straight (mine don’t always turn out that way!), a few new crochet stitches and you can play […]

I got a new spinning wheel - an Ashford Traditional Double Drive.
It is a joy to spin with - I was amazed how different from my other spinning wheel (an Ashford Kiwi - which is a really good wheel too, just different).

I know I have been very remiss and not around a lot lately, but i have had 2 special birthdays to prepare for and not much time to do it in.
The first birthday was a 21st and the 2nd was a 15th.

So Q2 - what's it to be?

Yesterday we took a trip up the Kapiti Coast and went to Te Horo. It's a very stony beach with lots of driftwood, but funnily enough just 10 kms down the road there's another beach with beautiful white sand. I think the other beach is protected by Kapiti Island so there's less debris washed ashore.

We also went to Ruth Pretty's Cooking School for coffee and cake. I love ... read more

I saw a dish scrubber the other day that had little floppy bumps all over one side so it could scrub a little bit better than a flat surface. After looking and thinking for a bit I decided to give the crochet hook and design a little bit of work and came up with this crochet […]

One of my favorite things in my kitchen is my crochet dishcloth. This thing works wonderful! I have a few in the drawer and I am always finding really there isn’t enough of them around. Of course this led me to make a few more and now share the crochet dishcloth pattern. If you are […]
