Hooky time...

So this week I put aside the needle-felting as I fancied doing some more crochet.
I will go back and complete the butterfly soon, and promise to share the results!!

I went back to my ripple cushion, and added a few more rows. Its nice to go back to and its very relaxing to do and flows nicely, it is growing slowly but surely!!

I also had a rummage through my yarn stash!

I fancied having a go at trying to crochet with my pom-pom yarn. I had no idea what it would turn out like.

As i started to do single crochet stitches in between the bobbles.

I decided I would turn it in to a long skinny scarf ,which would purely be a decorative accessory.

I like the way that its curled as its grown.

There wont be a Handmade harbour post from me next week as me and hubby are off on a trip to Prague :)


American Pie - the reunion

Just over a decade on from the action of 1999 teen sex comedy American Pie, the characters descend on their hometown East Great Falls, Michigan for their ten-year high school reunion. Over the course of a wild weekend, sparks fly as Jim (Jason Biggs), Stifler (Sean William Scott), Oz (Chris Klein) and Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) reconvene and reconnect. Jim and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) are still married, but things get wobbly when their next door neighbour develops a crush on Jim. Meanwhile, Stifler, stuck in a dead-end temping job, is having a hard time with the ladies, Oz (Chris) has hit the big time after winning a TV talent show, and Finch is still hankering after Stifler's 'MILF' mother.
**1/2 Dull, doesn't live up to the other pies


Liam Neeson stars in this sci-fi action blockbuster based loosely on the classic board game. When US Navy personnel are confronted by an unknown alien structure during war-game trials, they quickly realise the enormity of the threat facing them. As the aliens unleash a terrifying barrage of destructive force on the Earth's population, Admiral Shane (Neeson), captain of the USS John Paul Jones, finds himself caught up in the fight of his life as he leads a fleet of ships into battle against the seemingly invincible extraterrestrial armada. Alexander Skarsgård, Taylor Kitsch and pop singer Rihanna co-star.
**** pretty good action


  1. I really like the way all the colours show up in your ripple cover. I was really interested to see how the bobble yarn worked and I have to say that I am impressed. It all comes together really well to give the scarf a bit of body. Hope you have a lovely holiday :)

  2. The pom-pom scarf looks like it was a very successful experiment

  3. Purple pom pom yarn looks hard to work with but you seemed to have made it into a scarf really well! have a great time in Prague!

  4. love the rainbow ripples! I really look forward to seeing the finished cushion :)

    what fun to crochet with the bobble yarn! The skinny scarf was a great idea, i love how long it is :) x

  5. I love the ripples - they work well with the mix of colours. The scarf looks like a happy experiment. It's always good when things turn out well!

  6. I've seen this bobble yarn before and wondered about crocheting with it. Your experiment looks like it works very well :)

  7. I love the ripples, great colours.
    I've never been a fan of the American Pie movies so this is not something I'd go for but I have watched Battleship, not usually my type but hubster likes this type and I like to watch most things with him and I must say that I quite liked this one :)
    Enjoy Prague, hope you take lots of photo's.
