New blog love – By Haafner

As you know blogs come and go.

Different things in people’s lives become higher in priority.

Others have suddenly discovered a new way to spend their time and gone off to explore another path.

I’ve been on the look out for a couple more crochet blogs to follow; my crochet feed has run been running dry and I find a good crochet blog a feast for the eyes.

A couple of weeks ago I came across this beauty – By Haafner.

She has been hooking for only a few years but her blog shows a great eye for colour, lovely styled photos and the patience to take on some considerable projects.

She has given me permission to share some of her images with you. Click on each image to take you to the original post.

I love this blanket. It is very similar to my smaller baby blankets. I love the edging detailing.Dainty Dots Blanket

At the other end of the scale is this dainty necklace.

A fifties cowl. I’m going to have to check out that striped pattern effect.

 Some more delicious blankets see here, here and here

Haafner is incredibly generous in that she shares her patterns for her creations on her blog.
Here’s one last blanket. Haafner’s Popcorn Blanket.

I’ve completely fallen for this one.

I then I saw another one from Haafner’s pattern made by Vanessa on her blog Coco Rose Diaries.

So, guess what?

Yes, I succumbed.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.
