Yiippppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it's Hooky Celebration time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've had a wonderful time pootling through my photo files and archive blog posts, re-discovering all the projects that were on my hooks in 2011. Sixteen in total. I realised as I was putting this post together that a few of the projects will be new to you. Some were worked up In Secret. Some were made in such a frenzy that I never got time to write about them at the time. I'm hoping to write up separate posts for these projects at some point this month so that all my Ta-dah's come up to date. For now, I think it's enough just to feast on the images so I'll keep the words short.
♥ Enjoy! ♥
:: Sweet Flower Granny blanket :: started in July 2010, finished in February 2011 ::
:: Baby Blanket for Debbie Stoller :: February 2011 ::
I made this in a flurry of Secret Activity, it was commissioned by Debbie Stoller/Stitch Nation to appear on their website as a free pattern. (I'll be writing more about this project at a later date)
:: Japanese Flower Scarf :: February/March 2011 ::
:: Teeny Tiny Hearts :: March 2011 ::
:: Happy Flower :: April 2011 ::
This was one of those projects that I made very quickly in a frenzy of creative excitement. I was hoping to write up the pattern for it (my own design) but never found time and the moment came and went. PROMISE this is high on my list of to-do's for you.
:: Russian Dolls :: April 2011, although I didn't get around to showing these sweet makes until the Autumn ::
:: Granny Bunting :: May 2011 ::
Again, this was another project that I completed but never got round to taking any decent photographs of at the time (they were constantly scuppered by bad light and the Shelves of Doom in the background!). Promise I'll show you this in situ very soon.
:: Flora Bunny :: June 2011 ::
:: Snakey Chops :: June 2011 ::
:: Blooming Flower Cushion :: July 2011 ::
:: Spot Squares :: July 2011 ::
Yet another one of those patterns/designs that I came up with, worked up in a frenzy and then abandoned! There will most definitely be a pattern coming for these squares as I've already done the photographic bit.
:: Key Ring fobs :: July 2011 ::
Ahh yes, another quick make! I literally hooked these up the night before I had to take them to sell at the school fair. I made up the design as I went along and never wrote anything of the pattern down at the time...too busy making them to take note of the pattern! Will have to try and think about how I did it and write it up for you, I've been asked many times for this pattern so will try.
:: Baby Blue Ripple :: September 2011 ::
Made this for a very dear friend who was expecting her fourth baby in October.
:: Candle Trim :: November 2011 ::
:: Interlocking Ripple Blanket :: started in October 2011, and still in progress ::
:: Jolly Holly :: November 2011 ::
:: Jolly Festive Bunting :: December 2011 ::
This bunting is now finished and in situ and looks fabulous! Have photographed it and will be giving it it's full Ta-dah moment very soon.
:: Sixteen Crochet Makes :: 2011 ::
I am so very HAPPY with all the hooky that I achieved in 2011! Just look at it all!!!!! It's not been easy to fit it in amongst my full and busy Mummy duties, but all things considered I think I've managed to do a lot. I only wish there had been time for me to write up more of the patterns and document it all as I went along, but hey-ho, it's not the end of the world. I did what I possibly could and I am very proud of it too.
I already have an incredible stash of ideas/designs/projects I'd like to make happen in 2012, oh that Mental Stash is huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge!! It's going to be a really fun and exciting Hooky Year, wow, I absolutely completely and utterly cannot wait for it all to unfold. Let me at it before I burst!!!!!!
