I have a really good friend who’s off to the UK shortly and as she’s visiting her son and 3 grand daughters and one grandson, I thought this would be the ideal gift for the young ladies of that family.


Thank you for joining me as we work on two lovely free patterns together.

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual dc row start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self-explanatory videos on how to crochet a chainless DC start

In case you are unhappy with this start, do continue with the usual ch 2 or ch 3 start.  However, all instructions are given assuming that you’re using this chainless dc start.

A full time mum, a part time social service volunteer, animal fosterer and a Guinness World Record holder I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'. We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them. We strongly believe in Refuse-Reuse-Recycle, which seeps into projects too. Why did I start blogging? Over the years, I found many patterns that specify yarns that are not available locally. There are also hundreds of free patterns on the web, which are not in English or which only have a chart and no written instructions. I am fortunate that I am able to read charts and I just thought it would be lovely to share these ideas as I make my own projects, using our available local yarns. I started my blog page in October 2013, but was a really sporadic contributor. In the past year and a half, I have been writing diligently and have had a lot of really interesting creative products made. I am happy to be part of this similar minded group of crafters. ACHIEVEMENTS : In October 2016, my blog was adjudged among the Top 100 Crochet Blogs to follow In January 2016, I won the Guinness World Record for being part of the Record for the World's largest blanket In 2014 and 2016, I played the Ravellenic Games on the Ravelry Craft group and have won great (digital) accolades

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
