Hi there & welcome to Annie's Place. A place inspired by and named after my late Grandmother Annie. Somewhere I can be creative, and share my love for all things hand made. I like nothing better than sitting with hook & yarn, crafting something home spun & completely unique, or rustling up some yummy baked goodies. I live in a town with a beautiful embankment, situated on the River Great Ouse. You may know me as 'Colour-Heaven' on Flickr or 'CosyKitty' on Ravelry. Why not stop a while.....?!!

Tinkering

Tinkering. I like that word. I've spent a lot of time tinkering lately, fiddling, pottering, playing around with ideas for a new hooky project. I acquired a couple of balls of Rowan Pure Wool DK on my birthday last year, and ever since they've been sitting idle in my little craft cubby waiting to be put to good use.


I decided on a whim to create a simple circle within a square motif. There are hundreds of variants of this sort of pattern out there, but I have decided to call my wee version the Isobel motif. I don't have enough yarn for anything bigger than a cushion cover, so a cushion cover it shall be. It should sit nicely on my bed once finished. 


I've happily hooked up a few of these squares this week, whilst watching some of the French Open Tennis on TV. I'm really looking forward to the match up between Gael Monfils and Andy Murray tomorrow! Then it's onwards to Wimbledon, hurrah. Can't wait.....

Thank you for keeping me company here...

  12. Hi There,
    The crocheted squares are very cute!
    So funny to see that yarn. I too have a stash of it in blues and greens from last year, waiting to be made into a blanket. The above green has been discontinued (sigh) so my blanket will be a little lopsided in the green department...if i ever get it finished!
    Thanks for sharing all your scrummy crochet making.

  25. Hello! I have recently found your blog and have read and reread and joyfully ogled every post you have ever written! You do such beautiful crochet! And, being from the US, I am also totally enamored with your beautiful countryside and towns and photographs! I am writing today because your Isobel Motif is my favorite circle into square granny that I have ever seen...but I can't find your pattern anywhere. Did I miss it along your blog? I know your post is nearly two years old, but I am so hoping that you might be willing to share your pattern with me! Have a lovely day! And thank you for writing your blog!!!

    1. Thank you for being so lovely about my blog! It really means a great deal to know you have enjoyed the content. Sadly, I never got around to producing the pattern for the Isobel Motif, hence why you could not find it. So sorry to disappoint :(
