Doo-dad

Doo-dad

My little cousin asked me if I could make her bestie, who is expecting her very first little, a baby blanket…..and so Doo-dad was born. If you’re ever in a crunch to crochet a pretty gift that still makes you look super-duper clever, Doo-dad is the way to go.

Ivy Paw Paw

Ivy Paw Paw

I’ve always wanted a little girl child; one I could dress in pretty dresses and play dollies with. I even saved all my dolls from when I was little. My Cabbage Patch Kids and Baby Angel are patiently waiting in a cupboard to be loved by a little again. So, this one is for the cutest, naughtiest little Paw Paw I know – Ivy Paw Paw!

Thingie-ma-bob

Thingie-ma-bob

After all the fun everyone had with Whatcha-ma-call-it and all the many requests I received via email or messenger to please design a doodad, or a doohickey, or a whatsit………. you didn’t think I was going to ignore you all, did you?

T-t-t-t-t-t Touch Me

T-t-t-t-t-t Touch Me

The blanket is designed as a 130cm x 138cm lapghan, especially comforting to people with Alzheimer’s, autism, dementia, or sensory disabilities. Fiddle bits and pieces are calming and therapeutic, while the weight provides warmth and comfort.

FOR

FOR

I thought to myself, “It’s funny how we always make things For other people and very seldom For ourselves.” It’s always For my mom or For a friend or For someone I work with. And that I think is one of the greatest joys of crochet, the love we put into something we make For someone else. I have made mine For Emily, who was my great-grandmother. Who are you making yours For?

Whatchamacallit

Whatchamacallit

In the process of design, I started calling this one Whatcha-ma-call-it, you know like when you’re looking for something, but you can’t remember what it’s called so you say: “Have you seen the thingie-mabob or the doo-dad or the whatcha-ma-call-it”?

Hooked on Grannies CAL

Hooked on Grannies CAL

Hooked on Grannies has been a type of “going back to my roots” design and has been a proper labour of love for me. I’m not very fond of designing squares, to be honest, but I have always loved blankets made up of squares. They make me think of those proper retro blankets that your granny used to make and are just perfect for stash busting and learning.
