a gluttonous wife....hooks

As many of you long time readers will know, last year I taught myself to crochet.  I've never had a hobby other than cooking so it feels so good to finally be in that group of people who feels like they are doing something they are passionate about and love.  It started as a bit of fun to help fill in time as I have a lot of it on my hands but I never thought it would amount to much and I'd be onto the next thing as soon as I could master a granny square.  I never thought of myself as one of those 'crafty' people but it's really been one of the biggest blessings and surprises to come along in my life and I will be forever thankful I decided to give it a try.  

I started an instagram page @agluttonouswifehooks and have been busy with orders which is wonderful to help feed my addiction!  On the down side, my cooking and blog has taken a back seat but I'm still here hiding with my hook and yarn.  I've been drawn to doing beanies and baby goodies but I've also had a few blanket orders which I also love doing.  Most of the beanie designs are my own apart from the basic beanie tutorial which can be found here, although I've been using this sizing chart that has been fabulous from here. Here's a bit of what I've been making and a few links:

These baby packs are proving popular and so cute!! The bootie pattern is from here, the heart from here and the ripple blanket from here

baby butterfly from here
this flower is just a scalloped boarder rolled up and these booties from here

I taught myself to do these letters late one night

this teacosy from here

There's alot more on my instagram page if you feel like having a that's me all caught up!

If you are interested in placing an order or finding out more, feel free to email me at
Ciao, Jan x
