Knitting and Crochet Blog Week: Day 2

Published May 12, 2015 by sunmoonstars134

Today’s post is about me!

Day Two (Tuesday 12th May): It’s All About You.
Cast your hooks and needles aside!

This year you are challenged with one of those tasks that some bloggers can find quite daunting: but there’s never a better time then when we’re all in it together, so let’s shift the focus and turn the attention from the things we make to the things that make us.

The important thing here is to remember that you don’t have to go into great personal detail and certainly do not have to reveal anything too personal. You can be as candid or as private as you like, but you can also give your readers a feel for those things that you like to do outside of your crafting.

  • Do you like to walk or keep fit
  • Do you read or enjoy movies – are there any personal favourite books or films that you would recommend?
  • What is your dream holiday destination, job, dinner party guest list?

This post can be about your reality, your aspirations, past, present or future. Enjoy talking about you. If you really don’t want to write about yourself, though, use your creative license and invent yourself an alternative persona, whether you are a spy, deep-sea diver or astronaut (who just happens to love yarn).


So I decided to make a list of things I like 🙂

January CAL squares

Published April 26, 2015 by sunmoonstars134

A little late, you might say!

Well, given that I started on this CAL 11 days ago and am massively playing catch-up, I thought you might like a whistle stop tour of my squares as I work through the backlog 🙂

So here goes: 


I am making life difficult by making 4 of each of the 6″ squares to make a larger block as shown. Unfortunately the square on the left is looking darker than it does in real life, but the others look fairly accurate 🙂

Here are the photos I took as I finished each square:


The patterns for the squares can be found on the Ravelry pages, and I will update with my squares as they are complete (it’s taken me a while to get around to this post, so February’s squares are almost done!)
Anyone else doing a CAL? This one or another, I’d love to hear 🙂
