Crochet puff stitch hat & catch up

Well well well, look who it is! It’s me! HA. I’ve really enjoyed my feed recently, even though i haven’t posted anything. – I had nothing to really say? I’ve been so busy, with now a huge random bulk of orders, and i also had a bad wrist which set me back but i’ve also been meeting up with my mum much more and instead of sitting at home being bored we just randomly hit up some charity shops and see if we can catch a bargain.

Plus i think i have over whelmed myself. So when you’re a crafter, its like you have to plan ahead right? I booked two craft fairs, one for a woman who runs them all year around mine is in October and then i am doing a Christmas one for my local fire station. I knew this right, i had this under control whilst orders had relaxed i thought right lets make shit loads of stuff and also get more baby things on the website. Okay then i started to write more and read more, which then all of a sudden LIFE YES LIFE became really busy and over whelming, i could not fit shit in. THEN my wrist, i am dead sure it’s repetitive strain because when i have a dead line or need to get something finished i am straining and working all day til late at night.

Right now, i am over whelmed because not only do i have lots of things to make for orders, i still need to prep and make things for October and also Autumn/Winter/Christmas things to feature on my ‘not finished baby section’ as well as every thing else because this time of the year, without running a website  and orders is busy for me regardless. I opened up my bullet journal i have people’s birthdays left right even my own is in October – FUCK. And to anyone that knows me which you guys don’t, i am the type of person that once gets stressed stops and lets the world fly by and then cram shit in last minute because as much as i like to be busy i also like to be peaceful and i really don’t feel peaceful.

I managed to fit in this hat for myself! I follow someone MAJORLY talented, i mean you are all talented! Her name is Jessica Carey and she is the Hook Nook – This young beaut has such an eye when it comes to designing patterns and this is exactly where i got the pattern for this puff stitch hat from. I got it from Etsy and the link is here > The Hook Nook Etsy

I used my all time favourite yarn, King Cole Drifter. I swear to GOD i need more of this and i will get more because its so soft and snuggly, everytime i work with it i must say ‘oh wow this is beautiful’ as if it’s the first time lol!
I chose this colours last minute without the intention of making a hat, i think i was going to give myself some more practice at knitting and make socks or crochet a scarf, fuck knows tbh.
Then when i was browsing The Hook Nooks instagram i was like hmmmm, clicked her store and i finally purchased one of her patterns. I have been wanting to make something of hers for such a long time as she has this really cute top and jumper pattern but i still haven’t got in that jumper crochet mood yet! The hat however is pretty freakin perfect and this yarn is even more perfect for it.

I also never really like to make hats because everyone makes them and its just a popular, generic thing to make but i feel like when the weather is colder and that i have craft stalls it’s a good thing to use up some of my stash.

I used the clover pom pom make – PLEASE HELP ME. I always make my pom poms with a maker and everytime i do, no matter how tight i pull the pom pom at the end the strands afterwards are so easily pulled out. Can anyone advise me on how to stop this? I have used all types of thread etc, and i thought by buying the Clover set would make a difference. I have watched endless of videos and tried pretty much everything and it still doesn’t stop it from coming apart. 

I haven’t finished my book i am currently reading because i’ve been so busy, but if anyones interested i am reading The Dungeon House by Martin Edwards. I am enjoying it so i hope to finish it by the end of the weekend if i have time!

So i hope everyone is fine and dandy, i will be slowly catching up on blog posts so if i have clicked like and not commented i am going to i just wanted to be like oh hi i am here LOL plus when i scroll through my feed it reminds me to just quickly do that.

OH MY – Okay so i said i was going to write more, well i have being. I’ve entered some competitions which i won’t win but i started to write/plan and research this idea i have for a novel.
You know me i am a thriller kind of girl, well I’ve scrapped it. Literally today when i got pissed off at life and had a good moan/cry over the stupid things because i am a woman and i am just emotional hahahah it came to me. My story came to me, i know what path to take with my writing.
SO thank you to whatever that was, maybe i am actually opening my eyes more to my spirit guide and hearing it’s communications. – I know for a fucking fact that it or God or whatever exists doesn’t want me to win the lottery for some reason WHY IS THAT HUH?
I had a family member win ALOT on a scratch card not so long ago so every now and again i have been buying the same one and i was one off, i just needed a certain symbol and i would of been 300,000 richer. So i would like to say a huge screw you and piss off out of my good vibes to who ever is blocking my rich vibe.

I hope everyone has a good week/weekend, i won’t be blogging much as you can tell because i have lots to do but i am about on my Instagram don’t forget to get out Jessica carey, here website is Thehooknooklife

  1. That yarn is so yummmmy!!! I need to check out her out on IG it’s a super cute pattern. I am the worst at making pompoms – they’re always all floppy and crooked.
    Take lots of breaks and take care of those wrists!!! You should record yourself telling your story while you crochet and then just listen to it later and type it out! 😀

    1. It’s like 4.56 a ball but i think its worth it because it’s so soft. I love how each shade is named after an American state 😀 – She reminds me of you? Just because your so creative with the way you make clothing or anything in general, literally having a double de ja vu writing this so if ive said this before i am sorry LOLOLOL. Never thought of doing that? I imagine getting lost and end up recording yarn over crochet 24 in the middle hahaah

      1. Oh that’s not a bad price at all. I try to never spend more than 5 bucks on a single ball of yarn. Unless it’s one of the really big ones or one of the fancy cake yarns. I always think about what names I would give to yarn colors and patterns. I like to dream that I own a lovely little yarn shop where I hand dye all of the yarn that I sell. I would try to come up with some really cool names for the yarn. 😀

      2. Yeah if it’s more than 5 for just like 100g bleughhh but like to you said if it’s fancy etc then it guess it comes with the price. Awww tami your so cute lol! How cool would it be if you had your own yarn store with hand dyed yarn! If you shipped internationally yaaaaaas!!

  2. So happy you found your story! That’s really exciting. I haven’t been posting much on my blog either. I guess it’s just a busy time of year. Try not to stress too much about the crochet.
