Eazy Bee Macrame Plant Hanger

This month we have moved away from crochet (just for a moment!) and added the Eazy Bee Macrame Plant Hanger Kit to our selection of kits available in store or here in our online shop. Macrame is fast becoming extremely popular again, so if you have never tried this craft the Eazy Bee kit is a perfect introduction to macrame using just one simple, easy to master gathering knot. All the cords have been cut to the correct length for you, so you can get started straight away, the step-by-step pattern has full colour photos to guide you through every step.

I have to warn you though . . . . tying knots is very addictive . . . . I’m just completing a decorative wall hanger and have so many projects in mind I don’t know where to start!

New Crochet Kit launched this week . . . . . . .

The Crochet Lounge may have been unable to open so far this year, however, I have been keeping busy whilst in lockdown and this is one of the new crochet kits for 2021.

Dream Babies Crochet Play Blanket is a large chunky blanket for your baby to lay on, play on and snuggle up into. Available to buy from our website shop . . . just use the ‘Shopping‘ tab in the menu above. The kit contains all you need, and is available in four beautiful colour combinations.

What’s to come in 2021 . . . . .

The Crochet Lounge may be closed due to the national lockdown, but I am working on bringing new designs for Crochet Kits available to buy online.

On My Hook

On my hook at the moment is a new chunky baby blanket, to be available in four different colour options. There will be new colour choices for the very popular Car Cuddles baby car seat blanket and it’s going up a size for toddlers! Two new cowl scarf patterns and a Tunisian Crochet blanket that I’ve called Mardi Gras due to it’s bright bold colours! (Who needs sleep when you can crochet!)
