Current Crochet Projects

It’s been a while since I shared any completed crochet projects, but I am pleased to say that August has been a month of digging into the WIP basket and finishing them!

I made this Itty Bitty Bunny from issue 2 of Simply Crochet Magazine for my cousin’s new baby, Fletcher. I used Rico Baby Cotton Soft DK which I purchased from the Yarn and Craft Shop.

Back in June I hosted the Etsy Craft PartyΒ where we began crocheting baby blankets for the intensive care unit at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. Debbie Bliss had kindly donated yarn for the project, so I used the Baby Cashmerino and crocheted the bobble stitch.

Continuing on the baby theme (I hadn’t realised all my makes were for the teeny ones!) our WI group Cambridge Blue BellesΒ decided to enter a competition at the local fair to present a baby basket of handmade items.

I made the mitts. The other makes included a blanket, bunting, bonnet and booties. Super cute! The yarn was James C Brett Cotton On DK. Thanks to Miss ChaelabooΒ for the basket photo.

So after all the many makes for little people, I have started my first crocheted garment for an adult. I’m making this Cream Crochet Jumper from Issue 9 of Simply Crochet Magazine for me! It was my holiday project, so I shall be posting an update on the jumper soon!

My yarn choice was the light grey colour of Navi Uno (2ply) purchased from The Island Wool Company.

I feel as though I have really neglected knitting lately, so I soon will be casting on some hat projects in preparation for Christmas presents. Oops I just said the C word, I better go…..

  1. Ohhh these crochet projects are so sweet Claire! Thanks for sharing! I’ve been meaning to get started on the Simply Crochet jumper as well – it looks fantastic and so versatile for layering.

    And I know what you mean about the C word. Eek! Where is time going?! Off to go ogle your Pinterest πŸ˜‰

  2. Claire you put me to shame with your finished projects! I need to start less and finish more πŸ™‚ I love that cute bunny and looking forward to seeing your finished jumper – I’m desperate to do myself some winter knits but at this rate it will be summer before I’m done! Em xx
