Colour me Happy



Lots of wool-eater samples in progress today! I’m making the Wool-Eater more economical, using yarns from the stash, working smaller motifs and joining them all into one patchwork crocheted blanket!

  1. Sarah just love your wool-eater samples – the colours are just beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern with us all. You are a very talented and generous lady. Love reading your blog!
    Hugs Chris

  2. I instantly smiled when I saw the pattern was back this morning! Thanks Sarah!! Glad you didn’t let people get you down 😉

  3. Thank you so much, Sarah, for these beautiful colors, and for your wonderfully clear tutorials. Yes, you are making lots of folks very happy.

    I am going to have to try my hand at one of these wool-eaters. Gosh, that will mean that the number of my “works-in-progress” will jump into double digits.

    I keep telling myself I have got a jump on making Christmas presents, and think that some of these projects just might be finished by mid-December.

    Best wishes.

  4. Looks great Sarah! How are you going to join them? Are you making a Babette style blanket? Those colours are super, are you using wool or acrylic. I see in the Hip-to-Hook club you will be sending merino wool, how does one wash wool, I know with acrylic one pops it in the wash and the tumbledrier…is wool different?

  5. fantastic crochet…..very inspirational….i immediately want to abandon all current wip and get down to john lewis for some more wool. i shall throughly enjoy your blog now i’ve discovered it!

  6. I absolutly loved you latest works, so colorfull and great. tell me where did you buy that merino wool? was it only? How much did it cost to order that much wuantity – I WANT IT AS WELL!!!! lol

  15. How lovely! Your color choices are always spot on.
    I’m sure I’m not alone in wondering the stats of your work. Brand of yarn, weight, hook size, ect… Care to share?

  17. Thank you Sarah… I’ve just been taking time to look through your older posts and I truly love your blog. You’ve really cheered me up on quite a ‘blue’ day. And this is a great pattern… I’ve loved working this up today 🙂

  18. Fantastic pattern, will have to sit down when it is quiet and make a start. Looking forward to receiving Hip to Hook…so exciting. Dev x

  19. Your blog is so full of color – it is quite captivating and inspires me to pickup crocheting and try to learn more. I look forward to reading more of entries. :]

  20. Hi. I am new to your site, but OMG what a fabulous place to spend three or four hours!!!! You are very clever!!
    -In danger of making a fool of myself: What is this “Hip to Hook” ?
    Kind regards from Anniken in Denmark.

  21. Sarah I absolutely adore your work, your use of colour is fabulous. I found you on Flickr a few weeks ago and am soooo happy I did. I have been trying to add you to my bloglist ever since but it just won’t work, I have no idea why. I am trying to learn to crochet, I have been for ages and am convinced I am the only person on the planet who is yet to master the granny square. Your work has now inspired me to keep trying!! thanks

  22. I love your work…can I ask what yarn do you use and do you just have a palette of different colours in that yarn type or do do mix different yarns type/makes together?

  23. Hello Sarah, Thank you for your generous sharing of your patterns and tips for better and more colourful crochet. Your blog is delightful and inspiring for this novice crocheter!

  24. Oh my, your photos have left me breathless. I can’t wait to discover more of your site.
    Did you design the above crochet square yourself? You are so talented!

  25. désolé je ne parle pas anglais mais tant pis, je te le dis !

    je ne suis pas aussi douée en crochet et je le regrette
