Finished corner to corner blanket 

A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month! I can’t believe it is already winter here in Australia! 

It is a good thing that I have just finished my giant corner to corner blanket, all made with scrap yarn I salvaged from the St Vincent de Paul op shop 😊 I really liked working with all different textures and knowing that I have made a whole blanket with pre-loved yarns AND spent money for a good cause. 

What I also love about it is that it is big enough to warm up both Dylan and I while we watch TV. Bring it on winter, we are prepared!

With love,

Winter project – Cable knit beanie

Ultra fast and easy if you already know how to cable knit, otherwise it’s also pretty good to learn how to cable knit!

All you need is 2 different colours of yarn (or you could try to add more colours and go for rainbow!) and you also need to know how to make a pompom. I will write up a tutorial during the weekend on how to make your pompom using nothing but cardboard, yarn and a bit of patience!


And this is the final result! It’s perfect to keep your ears warm and I really love the look of it! I made a bunch for my family for Christmas last year, you can vary the colours but personally I like to keep the initial rib the same colour as the pompom.


What’s your favourite winter wear?

Winter project – crochet slippers

The lasts months in Brisbane have been cold, and I mean really cold! Yes, we do get cold weather, and yes, I consider below 10°C very cold. But, it was perfect weather for some crocheting, and I found this really easy slippers pattern, which I had to try immediately. I’m a size 10 (Australian female size) and the pattern was very easy to adjust. I added some extra embellishments as well (a basic crochet chain for my blue slippers and a larger strap for the green ones) and voila!
