New Year…New Inspiration

Happy New Year Everyone…Blessed Be…and Happy Hooking!

After a few months of hibernation and serious blog neglection I finally have some exciting new projects, tips and patterns to share.  I have content for about 6-7 posts scribbled in my craft book and aim to post one every Sunday from now on…(New Year’s Resolution)

Sexy Spheres…

One of the most exciting things I have finally found is a method of creating the perfect crochet sphere.  I was sure I’d stumbled across this some time ago but could not for the life of me find it again. This time with my ‘bookmark’ firmly clicked and double checked I have the pleasure of sharing this with you all.  Finally a little handy mathematics to help crocheters everywhere achieve a perfect sphere. So whether you’re looking to make a cute little amigurumi head or a ball toss game for the kids I hope this resources helps.  You can find the link to this in my free patterns page…enjoy.  Image above kindly borrowed from www.repeatcrafterme.com a fantastic site with lots of lovely patterns…also worth a look.

Let’s Get Geometrical…

The second really handy link I stumbled across was by fellow crafter mooglyblog.com who has put together a really easy to follow post featuring 5 basic crochet shapes.  These handy tutorials are perfect for free styling and a must have when you come to start designing your own patterns.  You can also find this link in my free patterns page.

Top Shelf Goodness…

I love magazines – the way they feel in your hand – the excitement when they drop through the letter box – clicking the kettle on knowing the next few moments are dedicated to seeing what exciting inspiration lies inside. As much as I love the digital world and couldn’t be without my netbook, laptop, smartphone and kindle fire, you just can’t beat a shiny magazine.  At the moment my favourites are Mollie Makes, the Simple Things and Simply Crochet.  If you are looking to get yourself a crafty mag subscription then these are definitely worth it! In fact I think you can still get 3 issues of Simply Crochet for £5.00 #Bargain visit http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk for more info.
