Weekly Update 3rd Jan – 9th Jan 22

Yikes, things haven’t been working out as planned. When I started this blog I had planned to post a weekly update as well as one other useful post minimum per week. I’ve already fallen behind with that. But hey it’s January and we are all getting back into a routine after Christmas and the New Year.

So this week I returned to my day job in Youthreach. We had planning days and prepared for our students return to the centre. I am like a mad woman carrying my HEPA filter around from room to room with me, but I really want to keep safe so I don’t catch this virus and pass it on to my mother-in-law who suffers with COPD and other lung and heart complaints.

Of course going back to work means I was extra tired and so not much crochet happened. I’m still working away on my Shamrocks to see if I can make the beautiful bunting from the Knotted Nest.

On Thursday I decided to change plan for a little while, as we are experiencing some cold weather here in Ireland. I decided it was a good time to focus on hats again. So I started working on a simple Half Double Back Loop Only rectangle style hat.

Might have made it a little too big!

There are many helpful blog posts and patterns out there for this simple hat but I learned how to make it from this Youtube video by CreationsMisfit

On Friday, Stephen and I headed off to IKEA in Dublin, to buy some bits and pieces to help make my craft room more of a room for crafting rather than dumping everything and anything. Did I mention I love IKEA, I wanted to buy everything but I was very good and only got enough to fill the back of the car.

The main thing I wanted was a pegboard

Pegboard Inspiration

I have suffered from huge Pinterest pegboard envy for a while now so I was very happy to pick up two for myself. Cant wait to get organising. I’ll definitely do a before and after post on my craft room. I must also finish that hat and post and update too.

So again, I’m sorry for the delay in this update. Must do better!

Make sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter and let me know what you are up to.

Until later
