I just love granny squares and I’m always looking for an excuse to inject a bit of colour in any project so… here’s the second modern granny square in my ‘Reinventing the GRANNY SQUARE’ series [I should really name it ‘how many ends can I create in one square’ series ;)]!ย  Continue reading “Reinventing the GRANNY SQUARE 2”

CLOSED: Crafty CC’s Super Instagram Giveaway!

Almost two years ago in late September I created my @crafty_ccย Instagram account and posted my first photo. I had only been crocheting for 5 months but I wanted to join the IG crochet community and learn from all the talented people in my phone! ๐Ÿ™‚

I could never have imagined 2 years later that I’d have more than 20,000 followers (or the fact that I’d still be crocheting- I tend to bounce from one craft to another) and have people admire what I post ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve had so many amazing opportunities arise thanks to you guys that I wanted to create this special event!

So when I saw my follower count slowly reaching 20,000 I started to plan a giveaway to thank you all for your support!

What started as a crazy idea back in late July has finally come into fruition! I’m holding a ‘Super giveaway’ with the help of some pretty awesome people!!

I’m so excited to give 10 people the chance to win some really cool prize packs!
Please note: You will need an Instagram account to enter.

5 rainbow colourways to use in your next crochet project!

I often get asked what colours I use in my crochet projects, so today I’ve compiled a list of the colourways I most frequently use!

I know what you’re thinking, ‘Celine, you always use the same colours, how could you possibly make a whole blog post on that!?’ Great question, I thought the same thing! Surprisingly, there are so many shade variations and combinations within the 6 (yes, I know a rainbow has 7 colours) main colours that I was able to make this list of 5!

These colourways were put together based on their aesthetic – I’m not well-versed in the subject of colour theory, I thought they just looked pretty!ย  ๐Ÿ˜›
