More new stuff listed

Posted in complaining, craft, Crochet, jewellery, News with tags , on February 18, 2009 by cuttydarke

It’s amazing how much you can do when you’re trying not to think about stuff.  I didn’t manage to get much done today though.  I think yesterday caught up with me.  Something caught up with me anyway.  I’ve been on the strong painkillers.

Anyway once I woke up again I managed to list some things.

Bling Ring

Wire Crochet Bracelet

Crystal Wrap Ring


It’s an ill wind

I have alluded to the bad stuff which is happening in my life at the moment but even this cloud has a silver lining.  I have been so frantic with worry that I have been desperate to do anything to distract myself.  I have tidied and cleaned and done loads of washing.  I’ve crocheted a whole single bed sized afgahn in just over a week.

I have also mastered some new techniques and made a bunch of rings.  The first two are now listed in my shop.

Charm ring

Organic ring

I’m still not ready to talk about the bad stuff.  Which makes me a bad, bad blogger.  I should really be bearing my soul to all and sundry.  I suppose I’m more private than I realised.

On Tuseday I slept a lot. I crocheted a lot. I thought about the novel a fair bit. I photographed my jewelry. I moved my computer.

Not a lot then.

If anyone is interested I am currently working on the ‘comfy cardi’ pattern from Crochet Me. I’ll post a pic when it’s done.

The jewelry will be appearing on my Etsy shop soon.

I’m Back

Posted in Crochet, News with tags , , on September 5, 2008 by cuttydarke

I have returned.

Well actually I was never away. I’ve just been busy crocheting and finishing a novel. Well I say finishing what I mean is editing and by editing I mean getting it ready to send out to agents.

I thought I was ready but not quite yet. I have discovered a hole in the middle of the thing. I know how to fill it but I was really getting into avoiding sending it out. Now I shall have to switch to avoiding writing it.

On the upside I did my first craft fair last Sunday and it didn’t suck. I even made a small profit and learned how to make a larger profit for next time.

New Ripple

Here’s the new ripple afghan. This one is in cotton double knitting yarn. It’s for my daughter so I’m going for a much more feminine colour range.

At last it is finished. It’s the perfect size for a single bed. I’ve already started the next one. Pics of that one later.

Book Review – Vogue Knitting: Crocheted Bags

Posted in Crochet with tags , , on April 24, 2007 by cuttydarke

This is my first review. I’ve spent a lot of money on crocheting books and I thought maybe others could benefit from my expenditure.

Vogue Knitting: Crocheted Bags
A lovely little book and eminently portable. The book covers a lot of techniques including tapestry crochet and felting. Obviously to make real use of the bag you need to be the sort of person who wants a lot of bags. Not so good for me as I already have all the bags I need but perfect for present ideas.
