Finally finished and I'm totally happy with the result! Absolutely in love with these colours, what do you think? It's almost weird how I gather yarn in the colours I like and that coincidentally match together so well :D . It's a round crochet Mandala rug in t-shirt yarn mixed with Thai chord. You find the pattern at a special launch price in my shop, as usual: PATTERN

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I've been ill since beginning of the month, and so has my daughter...but we "survived", and I've been actively working on some crochet projects, of course. I am very proud with this mini stroller or crib blanket: very colourful, as usual, and I loved using different stitches for the different rows, even on the blue border (picot stitch all round). You find it in my shop: BLANKET

Ready for my new pattern release? This is one of my most appreciated works so far, so I thought it would be a good idea to finally write a pattern for it, especially now, with Christmas approaching, thinking of a good DIY gift idea. What do you think? It is a granny square sweater in cotton with 2 different sides that can be swapped, in case you want to change looks. The item pictured is for a little girl, but sizing can be easily adjusted, and so can yarn. Enjoy!! DOWNLOAD PATTERN HERE

I know, I know: for most of you Christmas is far away in the future, and you probably don't even want to start thinking about it... But we online sellers must think things well ahead of our time! Did you know that many will do their Christmas purchases in November this year 2017? Or so they say. Anyway, here is a small, not expensive but super cosy and warm gift idea for your festive days, from ME to YOU: crochet Christmas slippers in soft chunky wool with red cotton trim and small bow on top. Merry Happy Everything in advance! (You find them here --> crochet slippers )

You might have followed my WIP for this, and now it is finally available in my shop: crochet poncho capelet, made in stripes of different colour, yarn and stitch motif! I really enjoyed crocheting this piece, because it never got boring. I don't know about you, but I love to invent as I go, choosing colours and stitches as I work. You know what I also like? The amazing comfort and cosyness of this cape: it can really fit most sizes, you just put it on and voilà! I might do a crochet blanket like this. What do you think?

When you have an online shop and crochet all the time, you tend to forget about "older" projects, or rather: you tend to put them aside, store them someplace safe for future potential customers and don't think about them anymore. Well, yesterday I wanted to go back to one of my most successful projects, a mini crochet blanket throw with flower motifs, and decided to take new, fresher pictures of it. So here is the result, hope you like it :). crochet blanket throw with flowers

I just needed the right right yarn for the right project: this romantic crochet shawl for sophisticated girls enhances the colour of the this yarn cake perfectly! So very chic, don't you think? Soon to be released in my Etsy shop (Hookloopsarah)

So I received this beautiful cake of yarn from Turkey, and I think the colour shade is great.... And what do you do when you receive new yarn? You immediately want to try it! Only, the right project just won't come to your mind *mumble, mumble*, so you end up doing something very simple, but that perfectly enhances the different colour shades. Like this very very simple "granny" shawl.
Have a look!

Who would have thought I would make funny faces in front of a camera to show off my funny crochet Halloween hat with spider web motif and big, black, removable spider? Not me! hat
