And it is done! Wow! Time flies by! My life has been turned upside down. Well, first of all we moved out of our house, and are now staying in our temporary home until we can get into our new home, and secondly there is that nasty virus! Who would have guessed that this would become so bad. But we have to keep our heads up and be brave! We can do this! I know a lot of people are suffering, because they are separated from their loved ones, people have lost loved ones, people are sick, people have lost jobs. But there will beRead More →

Long-awaited, but here it is! It took quite some time, and I admit I have hesitated if I would do this, but decided that I will!!! A new CAL! I got inspired, and thought it should be doable, despite the super busy period I’m in personally. No worries, it is all very positive, but it takes a lot of my time and energy. And I’m really wanting to do it! Because honestly, I became a little ‘crochet tired’. I have always been a woman with lots of crafting hobbies, and I like to switch between things. I also just wanted to spend more time withRead More →

Interwoven crochet in the round Have you already done interwoven crochet, but would you want to get the effect of this picture? This is possible, without complicated color changes! You can do this by doing interwoven crochet that is done in the round. I have made a quite elaborate tutorial here on the website, with lots and lots of pictures, drawings and a lot of explaining. I do the tutorial using the pattern shown on top of this blog. The pattern of Starburst will be published later, so please have a little bit more patience for that. I have 3 videos that go along withRead More →
