Happy New Year

It’s been so long since I posted! I’ll kick myself for this before long, when I’m wondering what yarn, hook or pattern I used for a particular project.

My blog absence is due to completing Christmas orders and then furiously hooking up a few Christmas presents, not to mention fitting in a social life, working and taking care of four children and one husband, it’s been a hectic few weeks! I thought I’d write a 2014 review post to remind myself what I have completed over the last few weeks and months.

***Going to try to group them into some kind of order as I’ve just realised exactly how many pics I’ve taken over the last few months!***


I love owls. Some much character in their faces and mannerisms and crochet owls are so popular. This pair of hats were for newborn twins, ahhhh,

I just love working with bright colours and ROYGBIV, or variations of, are my favourite. I made the first blanket for my youngest child and he loves it. He always sleeps really well when tucked in with this blanket which is an added bonus. The second and third pics were made to order and I loved every minute of making them.

Frozen Inspired Dress

It was lovely to be asked to make something completely different, combining crochet with tulle! I was so pleased with how this dress turned out that it hung in my conservatory for a good few weeks like some kind of museum exhibit, I loved looking at it! It was then posted to Germany to a little girl for her third birthday.

Bear Hooded Cowls

I love making these! They look infinitely cute on anyone who tries them on. Here’s my daughter modelling my first bear cowl, it has had a lot of wear which makes me so happy! The pink one was made for a customer order. I have made a few more to order and also I’ve made an orange one for my three year old and a  pale green/grey one for the toddler. A pic may follow if they ever stand still!

Slouch hats and mitts…

Were very popular this AW14! Made in a sparkly white yarn, which unfortunately doesn’t photograph well, these were so pretty and wintry! I have been meaning to make myself a pair of the mitts but haven’t got round to it yet. Maybe in time for next winter!

The rest…

In the words of my idol, these are a few of my favourite things!

Thanks for reading and supporting my love of crochet. Most patterns can be found via ravelry (although I am a bit rubbish at updating!), my username is littleroo.

Here’s to lots more hooking in 2015!
