Hello Hexie!

Our #BookOfTheWeek is Hello Hexie! by Sarah Shrimpton. Read our interview with Sarah, crochet a Star Blanket and #win the book from David & Charles.

Hi there! I’m Sarah, a Deputy Headteacher by day and a yarnaholic by night. I taught myself to crochet some years ago and started my blog as a way of recording my progress. From a simple beginning, it grew into a place where I published the patterns I designed and wrote about the yarn I was using. Today, I’m thrilled to have several books under my belt as well as designing regularly for the UK’s top crochet and craft magazines.

Put together the perfect Birthday Party Outfit for #DIYTheLook with Carla.

I have to attend my father-in-law's 90th birthday party, being held at his country club, in July. What to wear has been on my mind! So, this is the outfit I've pulled together, with that in mind. It must be something classy, beautiful, and easy to do, in a hotel room - and budget friendly, without me feeling under dressed. The single cocktail is so I go in with a relaxed, devil-may-care attitude - and it's the Bee's Knees!
