Crafty Jayne is Feeling Poorly

OMG I have a banging headache a bit like a migraine and I feel like laying down and doing nothing, I am not sleeping properly due to KJ snoring he is so loud.

Smokey Pink Rose

I have so many inspirations to make things whizzing around in my head and I can’t do any of them so I have no choice but to give up today.

I am diabetic and that normally makes me feel like rubbish every morning and along with this headache, I just feel done in.

I tried to change my pink top using a No.6 hook and it just kept going wrong, you know what I think it is the yarn, it is too thick it would be more suited to a scarf I think, so I have gone back to normal double knit yarn, I did a row of pattern but that’s it until I feel better.

I thought I would share a lovely Rose in a vase, I drew this many years ago and will be doing some drawing in the near future but right now I’m going for a lay down…

Crochet Top No Good

Well I crocheted 5 rows of my lovely pink top I was making, I wasn’t happy with what I had done so far, it was very very long and a bit stiff and it gave me a bad feeling that it was no good, so today I have undone the whole thing, took me while, but it’s done.

My mind took over and I have decided instead of making the top as a whole, I am going to start again and make the front and back separately.

First I am going to make two more swatches on bigger crochet hooks, the original was made using a No.5 hook, so I will be doing the new ones using a No.6 and No.7 to see if it comes out a bit looser.

I am so inspired with this top now, I have all kinds of ideas in mind, I was going to have a couple of over the shoulder straps at the top, but now I can see sleeves and I can’t wait to get started…

Re-Vamping My Wardrobe With Crochet

I have decided to re-vamp my wardrobe and crochet lots of clothes for myself, so looking forward to these projects, here is my first one…

I am so inspired!

I was going through my yarn stash and came across 500g of Cindy Fancy Yarn in Pink, it feels like a very loose twined yarn, it says it is double knit but it feels a little bit bigger to me.

So I’ve crocheted a small swatch in this fabulous pattern, it is a lot pinker than the photo shows.

I am making this pattern up, I have done some calculations for a ladies sun top. So far I have done 2 rows of pattern and the width looks huge so I don’t know if my calculations were any good lol, anyway if it comes out too big I can always undo it – I have had some more inspiring thoughts – if it does come out too big I will be trying something out rather than undoing it, follow my blog to find out, it’s exciting.

I took the measurements from an old top of mine that is looking a bit worn, so if this comes out good I will bin the old one and then I will go mad and make lots in different colours, fingers crossed.

So I will update how I’m getting on in future blogs, so don’t forget to subscribe, then you won’t miss anything.

Lemon Crochet Baby/Doll Dress

I have finished crocheting this fabulous little Baby/Doll dress, I really enjoyed doing this project so much I am going to do another one, but not right now as my little baby Jayne doesn’t have any hair, I am going to make her a little hat to match the dress.

This cute pattern only took one 100g ball of baby double knit yarn and this is all that is left of that ball, it isn’t a lot is it.

So I will have to start a new ball for the little hat, knowing me I’ll do the hat then think ‘oh I think I will make some little booties and mittens’ it’s never ending I just love crafts.

I have added a couple of little lemon buttons on the back and there it is finished.

This is a pattern from years gone by, I remember crocheting a lemon dress when I was around 14 years old and this pattern takes me back in time, fab.
