Extreme crochet!

Back in August I embarked on a large crochet owl basket. What I didn't realise, was quite how large this particular bird would turn out to be! According to the pattern, it should take 500g of any super bulky yarn. Well, I am about half way through and I have already used more than that! Here is the beast, which I think will be challenging the European Eagle Owl for the title of largest owl:

There was no way I was going to lug that around on holiday, so I have been crocheting up a few snowflakes:

This one hasn't been blocked yet. It is from a free pattern available here, and I used a 2mm needle. From the sublime to the ridiculous!

I realise that blogging has been a little sparse lately. There has been a lot going on, both at home and at school, and I have been short of head space. I am adjusting to the new normal; service will resume shortly!


  1. HI Lesley did you get my comments earlier, they seemed to fall down a big hole somewhere, not sure if you received them?
    Lots of love

    1. Hi Dorothy! No, perhaps Blogger is playing up. It's not unheard of! Lovely to hear from you now, Lesley


Thank you for your comment - I am always happy to hear from you!
