I've recently bought two Doris Chan books of crochet clothing designs and a friend of mine, Esther has commissioned me to make her one of the jumpers. This is my progress so far, I forgot to take much earlier photos.

Farpoint Topper is another pattern from the Doris Chan - Amazing Crochet Lace pattern book I bought recently. It has very simple construction of 4 pentagon motifs, I have finished making the last motif today and it is blocking at the moment, its a really simple design, one i'd like to try using a granny pentagon method. Simply create a pentagon motif which every side measures 33cm or 13".

Since here I haven't gotten very far with my attempt at a wool eater, I have made six blocks of two different colour rows so far and am slowly adding the final row of colour and joining. This did bring up the issue that I'd totally ignored the pattern and done the 2nd colour row wrong but I've worked around it.

I have dedicated this blog space to all crochet and handmade items I produce in my spare time, separate from the pieces I produce at college. My second year is over and to end nicely two of my final piece have been picked to be in an exhibition in Hereford called Point Six Six, along with the work of 12 other students. Its been a really good experience putting up a show but sadly this has caused my crochet to lapse just a little, well at least my blogging of it.
Here's the link to the exhibition blog and my own art blog;

This weekend has been full of fishing and crochet...The purple piece above is in essence the Sambuca jacket I have made quite a few times now but I hope to sew up the opening and wear it backwards like a jumper. The two piece's below were started only this weekend as I watched Danul catch lots of fishes nice and warm from the car. The red piece is another Sambuca Jacket the body is complete but I will need more wool for the sleeves, its a birthday present to come. The white vest is a new pattern from one of the books i recently purchased and crocheted up really quite quickly, another birthday present. Just lots of ends to sew in ... wooop...
Finished the Granny Square Cushion I was making as a present, luckily completed with just a little of the grey spare. It was given to its new owner this weekend with the response of ''ohh isn't that lovely'' and me suggesting it was turned over as what she was looking at was the back. Good result all round, sad to see it go though, think I might need to make a few for myself...
