Holiday Hooking

Holiday Hooking!

We have just had a long awaited and needed holiday. Just a week, and a bit random in the planning, but over all I’d call it a success. We saw snow, beaches and wineries, and I took along some yarn and hooks…

So here’s a little glimpse of the crocheting side of our holiday…

OK, so the first ones a bit of a sad sorry… after my darling nephew past away last year I’ve been wanting to contribute to the NICU and Angel babies, so when someone from my online crochet group asked for photo props and keepsakes for these little ones I happily made this hat and a blanket. I will keep making them but I don’t think I’ll post them much, too heartbreaking. A tiny tiny hat

and then someone posted picture of a Granny Square Bag she had made her daughter, I had to make one….

I did start a pair of slippers as I had forgotten mine, but they were not working out as planned and I have not finished them, maybe they will appear in another post??

I bought my first ever crochet magazine along the way… 

which has a cute bracelet to make with stitch markers as charms…  which fits in really well with the whole crocheting on the move thing! I didn’t have the right size hook on me so I’ve been waiting to get home and make it up!!

And for the remainder I worked on the ever present WIP…

Gorgeous crochet WIP

Luckily this is so beautiful I can happily pick it up and add to it any time!

Once home I decided to join a monthly 10 inch square swap and so I made this to be the foundation of my blanket which I plan on making up for miss 3, who loves blue and orange. Also it is #GrannySquareDay2015 according to Instagram…

Pretty productive holiday really… I’ve taken crochet around with my before to parks etc, but this is my first holiday – except visits to my Mum’s house, which don’t count. Quite happy as I can hook and chat and it keeps me occupied and warm!

Have you taken your hobby on holidays with you?? How did it go?

    Hi,
    I love the crocheting. My mom used to knit and the pictures reminded me of that. Thank you for visiting my site just now. I’m liked you liked my post about the social sharing buttons.
