Looking back at bloggy statistics, I thought I'd just share my most popular posts of all time here on this post.

It's no surprise, this being a crafty crochet blog, that they are all crochet makes......

The Evening Sun Blanket and the Serendipity Blanket are my two top favourite blankets I have made to date. Alicia Paulson's Sunshine Day Blanket makes up my top three I think.

The scarves inspired by a post on Vanessa Cabban's beautiful blog (sigh, still miss her so terribly in the crafty community) are my favourites too. They never fail to bring me colour joy when I wear them.

The waffle post, really was a waffle post, but full of my most recent makes. I had been a busy bee Blanket making and the baby blankets were a dream to make (so much so, adult blankets were made soon after). The pom pom edge blanket is a faithful friend to me. Bright and happy, I love it in the summer. The Rosy Posy blanket was a mammoth job! It was huge, but it was fun to do. It was made to be kept in the car for picnic and seaside trips and just general car snuggling on long trips.

The hot water bottle cover tutorial, is always a big hit some Christmas time. You all know me by now. I don't do tutorials, simply because I am so pants at them, but so many asked for one, and I did a general one to cover all sizes of hot water bottles, and it seemed to be a hit. I have it bookmarked, as I need to make some more for myself. My other covers are looking sorry for themselves as they have been so well used.

So, there we go.

Your favourite posts.

I just thought it was nice to share with you what you have liked the most since I have been blogging.

  7. Before you go I just want to say how much I've enjoyed your lovely blog... the images always bring a moment of peace on the day they arrive. Funny enough I'd only seen one of those posts... but now, of course, I've seen them all. Thank you for sharing a little window into your world... it's been a blessing.

    Thanks for sharing!!!/ Jeanette :)

  13. Hello my lovely. I think the fourth-placed post is one of my most favourite of yours. In fact, perhaps I'm responsible for a hefty percentage of its visits!!! It encapsulates everything I love about you and your blog in one post, plus my three favourite blankets of yours are all featured.

    My top post continues to be my crochet bunting post of four years ago. It seems that whatever else I do, I will forever be known as the 'bunting girl'!!!

    Anyway, I just wanted to pop by and wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas. xxxxx

  14. Lovely to see a round up of your favourite blankets, each one so beautiful and individual its impossible for me to like one more than another as they are all gorgeous!
