I can crochet...what next?


My post today is inspired by a conversation with a friend who is learning to crochet. She had quickly mastered chain stitch and double crochet, whipped up two lovely pen pot holders and was wondering what else she could create with crochet stitches.

I had such a lovely surprise last Saturday when the post arrived and an advance copy of issue 18 of Crochet Now popped through the door.

Back to school sweater CAL

Stack of three crochet garments
I am so excited to tell you a little bit about a CAL that I have been planning with my friend Tamara from the Craftyescapism blog. A couple of months ago Tamara and I were chatting about crochet garment making and we decided it might be fun to organise a blog hop and CAL to celebrate crochet garments and encourage others to have a go if they hadn't made a garment before.

Inside my project bag

I hope you've had a good week. If you've been to my blog before - thank you for coming back and if it's your first visit - thank you and welcome. In planning today's post I realised that it had been a little while since I shared a W.I.P round-up with you.

Book review | Three from the top

If you listen or watch the Crochet Circle podcast you may have already heard the news that my lovely friend Tamara and I are planning a crochet garment blog hop and CAL - the Back to School Sweater CAL. I'll be telling you ALL about it in a post at the end of July but in the meantime I thought it was a good time to share a review of a favourite crochet garment book.
