  • Hello from A Crafty Crocheting Mummy!

    Hi, I'm Katie

    I'm a mum of 3 children who decided to set up my own little business now 2 of my children are in full time school.
    I enjoy being creative and love crocheting.. I carry my hook and latest project with me everywhere, to the park or cafe. Luckily my friends are crafty too so don't think I'm too crazy
    I make unique modern crocheted jewellery and accessories. My Nan taught me to crochet at an early age and I've had a passion for it ever since. My products are handmade using a range of different yarns: wool, cotton, acrylic, Egyptian cotton; I also like to recycle old pieces of jewellery and incorporate them in my work.
    I called my business Elizabeth Laker as Elizabeth is my middle name and LAKER is the initials of my husband, 3 children and I.

    Looking forward to meeting lots of other crafty people!!

                Thats lovely. Mmm. Crocodile Stitch?? I am sure there must be a tute on UTube somewhere. Must have a look. Thats another new one to me. A few of us learnt to do a new stitch a little while ago, can't remember the name now but you use a long needle and keep the stitches on it a bit like knitting, Was It Afghan I wonder???

                    Welcome to the forum there are now a few of us crocheters Yay !!!
                    Crocodile stitch looks interesting. The Afghan or Tunisian crochet was the one Critchley was talking about. It's great for non stretch crochet fabric.

                        It was Tunisian crochet and you proberly learnt the basic simple stitch

                        Crocodile stitch is certiantly on Youtube

                            One thing to rember is don't be put off if it appears to not sit square but slants off to one side. You often have to 'block' Tunisian crochet if it's a finished article like a throw/blanket.
