BHG's Knitting & Crochet Collection

Front cover of the magazine with crochet hooks and pom pom makers packaged on the front. 

The Better Homes & Gardens' winter yarn crafting issue has hit the shops.

It comes with two acrylic crochet hooks 
(5 mm and 6.5 mm) and 
two pom pom makers (7.6 cm and 10 cm).

Has it truly been two weeks since the last blog entry? That's what happens when life gets hectic (and when one loses an entire week to being crook) but I managed to get so much done regardless!

Lots Going On! (Update)

Lupey Loops blog posts have been irregular lately because it has been such a busy time in many areas of my life: health, family, community, crochet and the blogosphere!

This post is about sharing all the news!

Adelaide Stitches & Craft Show

Rounded enamelled badge with the rounded logo which says "The Stitches & CRAFT SHOW Est. 1987"
This badge was given to me
when I collected my ticket.
After a short break from the online world, and with renewed vigor, I am here to tell you about the current Stitches & Craft Show in Adelaide,  South Australia.  

You have 1 more day (today) to visit the Wayville Showgrounds and enjoy some crafty goodness. The show started on Thursday and runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily until Saturday 9 May 2015.

Waking up with extreme tiredness and flaring symptoms, Thursday was not the best of mornings but I persevered and was rewarded with a happy day and some photographs.

As a regular visitor to Rachel Choi's extremely useful and informative Crochet Spot web site, I was very pleased to read an article about 'Adaptive Crochet for the Legally Blind'.
