I used to be able to crochet. I remember when I was about 8 or 9, crocheting granny sqaures with my Grandma but now I can do the basic chain and that's about it. Lottie tried to teach me when we went to SkipNorth, nearly three years ago but she just got cross and started shouting at me so I decided to stick to knitting and sewing.
Izabela of Bluefish Handmade, on the other hand, is a wizz at crochet and she is the VIP onboard the Coriandr Express at the moment.
Her Grandmother taught her to knit and crochet when she was 6 and since then, she realised that she enjoyed to make things, loving fibres, alternative fashion and fashion accessories inspired by history, colours and textures.
I love these slippers, they look so cozy and warm. Ideal for wandering around the house wearing or smuggling up on the sofa with a good book.
If you are looking for something a bit more racy, how about crocheted knickers? Yep, you heard it right, crocheted knickers with beads
Izabela really does have everything in her shop; from knickers to wrist warmers and baby blankets and onto delicate crocheted earrings. Go over and take a look now...
