Have taken a break from the hexagons this week - there's only so many bobble clusters I can do without losing my sanity! Instead, I have been trying out some patterns for little things. Both the patterns are on the Lion Brand website (you need to register to view patterns,... Continue reading

I started making some crochet hexagons yesterday, based on the pattern from Attic 24. I have a lot of odds and ends of yarn, so it seemed like a good way to use it up. I am using a 7mm hook with mostly DK yarn, this means it works up... Continue reading
