I miss my hook !

I miss my hook !!  I think its time to get back to crochet.  I just need a new Project ...... I was looking for something to make for a gift, or should I say to hold 'the' gift.  And I found this .. on the link under the image, copied from a lovely site called craftaholics anonymous ( take a look it has really nice patterns  for Free - Don't you just LOVE free patterns )

Maybe I will start tonight.  First things first though.  Children must be fed, dressed, washed and put to bed !!   Hope you all have a lovely evening doing what you love.  From MyLittleCorner.


  1. Just started making a set of three of similar baskets! They're so quick to make it's satisfying to have a finished item at the end of the evening. Makes a change from the blanket I'm making which never seems to get any closer to finishing point!

  2. I have to admit I do like quick projects .. its true its great to feel like you have finished something. I do have a question for you Louise, if thats ok ! With the baskets your making are you planning to stiffen the wool with some kind of starch product. The wool I have chosen is not that sturdy, so I was "hoping" that spraying it with starch will work !! ( a tip I found on-line ) Do you have any experience with this. Or should I have chosen different wool ? Thanks Louise.

  3. I haven't used any kind of stiffening products before. The wool I've been using is a 50% cotton, 50% acrylic mix that seems sturdy enough for the smallest size (approx. 8x8cm) Time will tell if it works for the larger sizes too, I'll let you know!!

  4. Thanks ... I finished a quite large sized round basket today and will be trying the startching tomorrow... I guess I will find out !! :) Thanks for your reply. I will post my results tomorrow.
