crochet · new blog

Technically challenged…..

What a week!  I was experiencing some weird issues with my blog.  Long story short, I ended up with two versions of my blog on two separate servers. What. A. Nightmare.  It was all finally resolved today after hours of online chats with various support departments.  I had no idea what I was doing and everyone I ‘spoke’ to suggested I change various settings and I was going round and round in evermore dizzying circles.  With head in hands and on the brink of giving up, I had a lightbulb moment and worked out I had hosting I didn’t need.  I cancelled it and then the very helpful happiness engineers at WordPress Support sorted the last part of the process. I am so relieved!  Who knew it would be so complicated to share my crochet experiences, projects and adventures online. Perhaps I should have thought about sending a newsletter by snailmail instead 🙂

Anyway, fingers crossed all is now well and I can continue with my blogging quest.

I will leave you with a pic of my current Attic 24 Sunny Square WIP while I go for a long lie down in a dark room…………

Happy Valentines Day everyone.


Up and running

After having issues with my domain name, learning all about DNS settings, spending way too many hours tweaking the layout and playing with widgets I think I am at last happy with the overall look of my blog.  Please do let me know if you spot any errors or find anything which isn’t working as it should.  I appreciate there is not a huge amount of content as yet but I am looking forward to sharing my hooky adventures !

I have missed the calming nature of crochet this weekend.  My hooking has taken a back seat over the weekend whilst setting up my blog. The housework hasn’t faired much better but I have at least tidied, hoovered and put my Sunday roast in the oven.  As the fragrant smell of dinner starts wafting through the flat Mr B and Miss M have now woken from their slumber and are padding around, ever hopeful a small treat may appear in their bowls !

This blogging lark is nearly as addictive as hooking !  I best get a wiggle on or dinner will be ruined.  Take care everyone.


My first crochet blog!

So, I have decided to share my love of crochet with the world !

My late Granny Elsie taught me how to crochet when I was little and I took it up again in December 2014.

After making a small granny square blanket which was promptly acquisitioned by Mr B and Miss M I took to the internet to find an easy project to get my teeth into.  I came across Lucy at Attic 24 and was immediately inspired by Lucy’s creativity with colour, so promptly ordered the Cottage Ripple Blanket yarn pack from Wool Warehouse.

Tah dah! Here is my first blanket – I was so pleased with it and Mr Buttons certainly approved !
