about me

 

Hello! I’m Cornel and I blog about things that inspire me, things I’ve made and Craft Share, the craft group I started in 2009.

You'll find lots of crochet on my blog, as well as my crochet and sewing projects for Ideas Magazine, since September 2011.

invitation to craft-in-a-coffee-shop on thursday 1 september

This is an official invitation to everyone who knits or crochets:

Join myself and my friends by knitting or crocheting in a coffee shop anywhere in the world, on the 1st of September. And by posting your photos on Craft Share's Facebook page.

In South Africa we celebrate the beginning of Spring on this day and some of us will start work on a very exciting project: the biggest yarnbomb to be held in South Africa in February next year at the Coca-Cola Dome, in conjunction with Ideas magazine and Homemaker's Expo. The September issue of Ideas magazine is on sale now (you can suibscribe to the digital version of the magazine here) and explains what shapes, sizes and colours are needed for the yarnbomb.

I'll be at my friend Anisa's shop, Succulent Cafe, at Woodlands Mall in Pretoria from 10:00 on Thursday, crocheting and knitting flowers ...

Hope you'll join us, wherever you are! C x

men should knit!

I had many options for today's post: "Real men knit", "Modern men knit", "Knitting is good for men" or "Men with balls knit"! You pick one. Here's a man who knits: Jared Flood. Actually, he does more than knit. He designs knitwear patterns and has his own line of yarn, Shelter. Have a look at his blog over here.
