Three's a Charm...


 I was going to title this post 'I'm having triplets" but I thought some of you might grab the crochet hook and start making layettes at great speed! :)

So this is my first new design for 2013 
the 'Vertical Garden Hanger'.

I have restrained on the macramé knots and let the turquoise twine do the talking! 
She's a whopper, just under 2m and is carrying 3X10cm sized pots.
I highly recommend trailing plants as this is all about the plants!


 What twine colour should I experiment with next?




Also I have a little claim to fame to share.....Kirsty from Kootoyoo did a feature about me over here.

I'm so delighted and quietly smug :)

 Psst I reposted an image from her blog look!

  3. I love the triplets (relieved I don't have to whip up three pairs of bootees though - that would be a BIG ask, especially considering my struggle to chain stitch! Oh hang on, I've just had a thought...can bootees even be crocheted? Anyway, whatever, knitting them would be just as challenging!)
    I really enjoyed reading Kristy's 'article' and seeing some pics of my lovely, clever friend. You just look so NICE Pippa - I knew you would! Yay for you and yay for Ouchflower!

  5. Interestingly, all I remember seeing in the seventies were natural coloured macrame hangers. I made a few myself when I was about fifteen! I remember getting a free netting tool with a magazine and making myself a string bag. I attached it to my mum's kitchen cupboard handles to work from.

  8. Congratulations on such a wonderful article. It's great to see you in action doing your thang. To quote Deborah Conway, I reckon it's 'Only the Beginning' of a huge year for Ouchflower. Love the triplet macrame too! xx
