2011 Crochet


Happy New Year!!



I know it's clichéd to make New Year resolutions but I rather like them.

There is nothing more exciting to me than sitting down every few months to see

'where I'm at'

2010 proved to be a very interesting year.

I don't think I had a  goal for crochet other than developing the basics

but I think I went way beyond that.

From May 2010

I knocked out 65 'Beyond the Square' motifs &

12 crochet projects

ranging from pincushions to scarves;


I even managed to make the Vivivd Dreams blanket!





Crochet Buttons

I honestly

didn't have any of these in mind at the

beginning of the year.

So for 2011

I thought I would take a similarily relaxed approach.

I plan to continue to work as I have been

(from my Japanese books)

  teach myself Tunisian crochet.

That should keep be pretty busy for another year…

but first, I need to go book shopping.

    That sounds like a great plan – any excuse to buy some books can’t be wrong! I’ve been eyeing up tunisian crochet too … but I need to improve the basic crochet skills that I learned in 2010 first. Can’t wait to see what you make!

    Happy New Year to you and DH and I agree any excuse to buy more books is always a great idea.

    I found Tunisian Crochet to be a little tricky at first (couldn’t figure out how to get it to go straight) but I think I’ve mastered it now, so if you need any help just holler.
    Amazon also have a pretty good book entitled “Tunisian Crochet: The Look of Knitting with the Ease of Crocheting”. I’ve recently received my copy so I haven’t had a good look at it yet. Maybe I’ll do a review of it on my blog (http://rosescrafts.blogspot.com) once I’ve had a better look.

    Happy New Year Heidi! I like the resolution too, the taking-stock and looking around to see what needs doing. I loved all these beautiful crocheted projects from last year and can’t wait to see what you’ve in store for 2011. I will be back!

    Happy 2011! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday 🙂
    Thank you Richard for the recommendation, I have just looked on Amazon and it looks great so I have ordered a copy along with “Learn to do Tunisian Lace Stitches”. I can’t wait to get started!
