The Posh Crochet Poncho…



This is one beautiful looking poncho….I just purchased the pattern mainly because one of the reviews stated that it was easier than it looked…..being a beginner I find it wiser to do one stitch at a time, one line at a time without looking too far ahead, getting overwhelmed and ditching it even before I have started….

I am still having problems with tension, I am obviously stitching too tightly so working on that….so this one might turn out to be child size!

Purchased from The Posh Crochet in Etsy…

At the moment I am finishing off some crochet bunting for Easter….have made a little wash cloth, also to give away at Easter, with some soap… after this, I shall attempt this little beauty…

I have made some enquiries about stocking some wool for you as mentioned in the last post and am chatting to various suppliers….until then I have a batch of possibly discontinued Sirdar Sunseeker Sensation in baby pink for you….£2.00 a ball, at the moment I have 26 left….


Click on the picture and go take a look….I have my eyes on lots of exciting things so keep checking back for progress….

Some Instagram inspiration for you…..which is where all of my inspiration comes from….


From Gabrielle Davies who is currently Spring Cleaning….I have lots of work to do this Easter weekend but that definitely has me wanting to do some sorting and cleaning….

I will be featuring my favourite Instagram accounts so go find me over there….I am pinkcobwebs1

Happy Easter Weekend!!

New Ideas…..

I am having such a great time learning and trying new crochet techniques…..bit of a collection of Simply Crochet magazines and yet to read books….I think I might have finally found my passion…..


I find I am at my best when I follow a pattern and then slightly change it, I like to say it’s so that it’s unique….but it’s usually because I haven’t quite understood the pattern or I have gone wrong…. it’s all perception after all….

Pattern above comes from the Learn to Crochet Granny Squares and Flower Motifs by Nicki Trench….I love every single pattern in this book….

Anyway, as I am already an online retailer….that’s wetsuits and beach stuff, totally unrelated at Mad Monkey I thought, why don’t I think about selling yarn, because, to be fair I love it far more than I love neoprene….

I have some small stock coming so keep your eyes on my Etsy shop (tab above) as that’s where I will initially put it….should you have any requests just let me know!
