Knitting and London life. Not necessarily in that order.
Saturday, January 9
In between the weaving (more of which later), cooking, walking and cycling of the christmas holidays, I had a bit of a crochet phase after happening across this blog written by Michelle, an Australian with a passion for granny squares and all things vintage (check out her other blog 'loving the vintage').
She has some great tutorials for crocheted stars, trees, hearts and circles all based on the traditional granny square and easy to knock up when you have a few minutes spare. I was a bit late to make any christmas decorations, but after making a few yellow stars, green trees and red hearts, decided to make some smaller stars in fine crochet cotton that could be used either as decorations or jewellery.
