Keep up to date with all my news…..

Delve into the life of the Secret Crocheter! Have a little read of my blog to hear all about the other things I get up to when I’m not crocheting (to be fair these are usually crochet related!) and all the wonderful people I meet on the way.

Mustard is the new black!

Mustard is the new black!

A lot of my crochet students want advice on following patterns and so I thought the easiest thing to do would be to write my own - at least that way I know that they work and that they are suitable for beginners.  My latest one is for a simple headband pattern, which...

A Yarny Treat

A Yarny Treat

It's been half term this week for me which means lots of things.  Firstly, a chance to catch up on lots of school work and plan some fun activities for the term ahead (Term 2 is my absolute favourite as it's the lead up to Christmas!)  Secondly, half term...

Poppies for Remembrance

Poppies for Remembrance

It's less than a month away until Remembrance Day so I've been busy crocheting poppies.  I've been experimenting with 2 different types this year; the traditional poppy and then something a little different.  I'd love to know which one you prefer?!

The Mad Hatter!

The Mad Hatter!

Now that the weather has changed and those warm summer days are a distant memory, it seemed only right that I add a new wintery workshop to my list!  In this new workshop, you'll learn how to make a simple beanie / bobble hat using some lovely, super chunky yarn...

Handmade Cards

Handmade Cards

This week I have mostly been making cards!  I know I'm slightly biased but I love these crochet cards.  I hope that they are the kind of card that people will want to keep, and they can be personalised really easily too.  All these cards are available to buy from my...

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey

It can be a bit daunting when someone asks you to make something for them, especially if it's not a family member or a really close friend.  There's actually quite a lot of pressure involved!  A  lady asked me to make her a chain scarf using lots of different shades...

Who’s for a smoothie?!

Who’s for a smoothie?!

I don't know about you, but sometimes my best ideas come during the middle of night when I wake up and can't get back to sleep again!  And that's what happened with my new crochet kits. I'm absolutely in love with these - they are perfect for a gift and look fab too...

My latest commission – The Tea House Wrap

My latest commission – The Tea House Wrap

So, a good friend of mine asked me to crochet her a tea house wrap.  She'd seen a picture of it on Facebook and immediately fell in love with it.  Quite a lot of pressure I hear you say!   I found the pattern for it from Two of Wands and set about crocheting it.  I...

It’s the small things…

It’s the small things…

Now the summer holidays are well and truly upon us, I thought I might share with you how I like to spend my free time.  It will be no surprise to some of you that I LOVE to crochet, and what goes well with some crochet I hear you ask?   A pot of tea and some...

Trying my hand at macrame

Trying my hand at macrame

I love trying out new things and thought I'd have a go at some macrame.  I used some leftover t-shirt yarn and bought a cheap pot.   The base is made up of a simple crocheted circle and then you build up the sides with a series of chain loops.  What do you think of...
