I’m still crocheting

So I haven’t made a post in a while and I can’t sleep, so I thought I’ll make a post about where I have been and what I have been doing.

Well 3 weeks ago the easter holidays started and on the Sunday my family and I went on a mini break as a family for the first time. We went to Cornwall for 3 nights and visited eden project which was fun. I was going to take some crochet projects with me but in the end I didn’t I thought it was a break from crocheting and enjoying family time.

When I got back to reality I thought I’ll start a project using some wool I got from Aldi last year. Im guessing it’s super chunky as it says to use 8mm hook, however I dont like the texture and because of that I could not find a pattern I like. I tried 3 different ones. Nothing, so this made me have a break from crocheting for a week or so.

I then decided to use a different yarn. Now this yarn is only sold at hobbycraft. It’s women’s institute soft and silky. I like the colours in the ball, but when I tried using it for patterns I hated it, I hate how fast the colour changes. I eventually frogged my project and restarted another I must have done that about 3 times until I decided on c2c.

The picture doesn’t actually give the colours justice. I’m warming up to the colours too now. I want to try and get it finished by Tuesday as I have some yarn coming hopefully. Ice cake yarn. Companies using the cake style to their advantages now as I never heard of ice yarns before.

Thank you for taking your time and reading my blog post. Have you got any yarns that you dislike? What are you favourite yarns?

  1. I love the yarn in your blanket! I’ve got some super chunky aldi yarn, I’m just using it up to make baskets. Mine is the sparkle one and it makes a funny noise, like crocheting with bubble wrap!

    1. The yarn is definitely growing on me, but I find not all patterns will work with this yarn. Haha, I make sure not to get the sparkle on, I probably won’t like the texture of it on my hands.

    1. Thank you. You should give it ago. Get a hook and some wool and use youtube as a tutorial. It’s very easy but guess can say that about anything once you get the hang of it.
