Crochet is a wonderful pliable way to work with yarn.
I will be in Alyth Town Hall over the weekend demonstrating some tips for getting started.
Here is a wee example. I wasn’t terribly impressed with this motif and initially laid it aside. I then decided to add some surface crochet and changed the look entirely!

It’s getting nearer every day! As a member of the Mavericks Art Group I will be at Hallgreen Castle on Saturday, 9th, Saturday 16th, and Sunday 17th, exhibiting my work and giving demonstrations of crochet.
There is also a huge amount of delightful work by other artists and more demonstrations.

Sam Baxter – sambaxterart – has very kindly sent me these photographs of my work from the above event. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this event Sam!
Big huge thanks to all of you in the Fun A Day Dundee team for all the hard work you put into this event. It was an absolute pleasure to take part.
Here are a few more photographs of the fun I had. Enjoy!
- Experimenting with 4mm hook and DK weight cotton.
- Different ideas, quintuple treble, Irish net grounds, Irish net fill-ins.
- Work vertically or horizontally?
- Been worked up and rattled down a few times before reasonably happy with these two different sides.
- A few problems to solve still.
Well, I’m a crochet tutor! So the first thing I saw when I looked at this shed snakeskin was a beautiful lacy crochet pattern. Don’t know quite how it would turn out or what I might use it for. Maybe give this a try out sometime and see if it can be made into a working pattern. Probably would need a more delicate name than Boa’s Belly Stitch though!
I really like this idea – creating just for the fun of it.
Who knows where it might lead 🙂

That was a wonderful weekend, sun was shining, and people were out and about. The atmosphere at Trafalgar house was lovely and relaxed. Fellow Artists Liz Petrie, Jilly Henderson, Neil Paterson, Karen Elliot, Maralyn Reid-Wood were delightful company. Thanks to everyone for your generosity. I also came away from the weekend with a new family member who now eats and sleeps for Scotland and is a right loving fur baby! I have named him Happy, cos he is!

Winter is coming! Wish I functioned as well in the cold as an eagle riding on the Ruach!
