Wooly bully alpaca fingerless gloves

Yes I've made myself yet another pair of hand warmers using my granny square glove pattern, it's such a fast pattern you can make them in the morning and wear them in the afternoon. This time I've treated myself to some luxury wool, using Wool and the gang wooly bully alpaca. The wool is super soft and lovely to crochet with, and forms a gorgeous texture in a granny square pattern. If you would like to make a pair, click on the link to take you to my pattern.

Exciting news

Hey, my lovely fellow crocheters, Super excited about this special blog post. Recently the awesome We are Knitters got in contact with myself, to work on a few fab collaborations, has you can imagine I was totally thrilled WAK are so cool, how could I say no to getting my hands on some of there delicious wool.

My first collaboration was to design a little pattern. I came up with the idea of a pair of cosy chunky slippers, perfect for winter days keeping your feet lovely and toasty, your feet will be spoilt rotten snuggled up in 100% Peruvian wool from WAK.

You can whip my chunky slippers up in a few hours, if you like a fast project. I choose to make my slippers in gorgeous spotted dark grey WAK 100% Peruvian wool using my giant 15mm hook We are Knitters supplied, such a dream to crochet with both wool and hook.

So here is the really exciting part. Myself Sweet Sharna and We are Knitters are hosting a giveaway together. You could win my Chunky slipper pattern and all the supplies to make them, from We are Knitters yes that includes the delicious wool and 15 mm hook etc. The only difference is the wool will be in beautiful Natural colour.

I'm so happy recently on my Instagram page my granny square love has inspired a few ladies to pick up a hook and tackle there very first granny square. This post is for the newbie crocheters out there, anything I can do to spread the granny square love.

Going back to basics, remembering the first thing I ever crocheted 3 years ago, how could I forget my very first granny square, it was wonky missing stitches and a little bit cute, why did I not take a picture of it.

Anyway here's my granny square story. Over 3 years ago I joined instagram, I used to sew a lot make pretty skirts and love my sewing machine, I would post my cute little handmade pictures on instagram. Not knowing that in a few years time I would be a complete crochet addict. I meet all these new lovely instagram friends through Allison Sadler #makeitsewcial a lot of them made the most amazing crochet makes, they inspired me to pick up a hook.

I had seen so many totally awesome granny squares, that was the first thing I desperately wanted to make. I watched endless you tubes videos, I was not finding it easy, I was a slow learner if it was not for my desperation to make a granny square I would of just given up. So I booked myself into a beginner granny square 1 day workshop at my local yarn shop, yay I had finally made a successful square, I was super duper happy then I just couldn't stop making them in all the colours.

Now I can most probably crochet a granny square with my eyes closed, still absolutely love making them, can't you tell. Haha
