Big and Little Crochet Update & Crochet Versus Papercraft

February 22, 2019

There has been tons of progress with the Big and Little Crochet throw making. I've managed to work together my first 13 hexagons and have completed all of the hexagons and half hexagons to date. I'm pretty sure we'll be getting some instruction on how to piece more together and we should have a good third of the throw completed. It's going to be a beautiful piece when it's done and I've thoroughly enjoyed working on it so far.




I've really returned to crochet as my first love in terms of crafting. Papercraft took over for a while but I've reassessed things and realised that crochet has a distinct number of benefits over papercraft:


1. It's far more portable

2. You need less storage space and fewer tools

3. It takes up less space

4. It's easier to relocate your crochet habit than it is to relocate your papercraft habit

5. It's less messy

6. There is less waste and less environmental impact

7. It's just so much more therapeutic in my opinion

8. A good piece of crochet has a higher retail value and is much longer lasting

9. Profit margins are considerably higher with crochet

10. For some of the reasons already mentioned it's far more sustainable


So there's been a distinct return to crochet as my craft of preference and as I'm not far off moving home now I feel there will be an even further divide between me and my papercrafting obsession.




For my latest crochet videos head to my You Tube Channel at Crafty Little Things UK, I'll link my latest effort here to help you.


Thank you so much for dropping in and I'm going to be updating here a lot more frequently from now on. Due to tragedy and a very tough year I've neglected things a little and want to make amends for that.


Have a great run into the weekend.
