Wrapping Up my Reader

No, I have not invented a virtual rag week whereby my readers are bundled off to a far-flung location...I have simply crocheted a cover for my e-reader

My First Crochet Ta-Da Moment

I have already Instagrammed this item so you may have seen it but I also want to record my crochet journey here.


In line with my pledge to learn crochet in 2015, I've been following Alison McNicol's excellent tuition book: How To Crochet: A Complete Guide for Absolute Beginners.

I'm not too fazed by the stitches as such, but holding my hook in the right-hand while controlling the yarn tension with my left...that IS indeed a challenge, not helped by Multiple Sclerosis. I have found my own way of doing things and, so far, so good.



My First Proper Project


My Kindle Paperwhite has needed a cover since my husband upgraded it for my Christmas present (he now has my "old" one so we are both digitally connected at bedtime).

Using a luxury wool has given this the tactile appeal I didn't want to lose by covering my Kindle. I know I take the cover off when using it, but it is also nice to have a touchy-feely relationship when it is off-duty.

The wool is from the LanaGrossa McWool Pencil range. With browns, beiges and greens in a self-stripe, it was an ideal choice, bought from online shop, Love Knitting.
