Hi! What are you up to today?
Hello! Frantically planning more things to design and make than I probably have time for. But, isn’t that always the case?
What is your favourite type of project to crochet?

Where’s your favourite place to Crochet?
In a cozy chair near a window, or out on our back porch while the wind blows and leaves gently sway to a rhythm all their own.
Which of your crochet projects are you proudest of?
A baby blanket that I crocheted from a ZeensandRoger pattern. I loved the colors I chose for it, but most of all the joy on my friend’s face when she unwrapped the bundle and saw the gift.
What’s the biggest challenge you’ve ever faced with your crochet?
It’s going to sound silly but the first thing that popped into my head was counting.
What’s the best piece of crochet advice you’ve ever received?
Use stitch markers, and they are just stitches, don’t be afraid of them.
The theme of this months box is Books & Spells, if you could cast any spell what would it be?
The first thing that comes to mind is Kage Bunshin, but that is a Naruto jutsu. So I’m going to say, absque dolore (absence of pain) = the ability to crochet without pain…
Do you have any big crochet plans coming up?
Yes. Firstly, my mind is always cooking up new garment patterns. Secondly, I want to keep exploring new techniques and designs that involve both knit and crochet.
Where can people find out more about you?
There are several places. You can search crochetcakes on YouTube for my podcast and other crafty videos, instagram for a daily slice of craft and of course, my website/blog crochetcakes.com .
