Aigi’s workshop

Hi. My name is Aigi and I would like to welcome you to have a good look around on my homepage. I like to knit and crochet and sometimes if I am in the mood then I also bring my sewing machine out and do some “small” projects

The magic of wool


Over the years I have stashed up boxes of wool and more then a year ago I gave myself a promise that I WILL not buy any more wool until I have used up one of my 75 l storage boxes full of wool. It was easier to say then to do as you all knitters and crocheters know we never have the right colour of wool for our new projects

I don’t know how it is with you but if I see a nice ball of wool then I feel like the money is burning in my pockets. Then I just can’t resist buying it and at that moment I don’t think what I could make out of it. There have been some exemptions where I have been looking for a specific wool for my new project but then I have struggled to find the right one and gone back to my stash and made mix& match

I have been crocheting for more then half of my life but in 2020 I learned how to read a crochet pattern in English.Before that all them sc, inc, dec,ch and dc was like double dutch for me It may surprise you but now I need to translate crochet patterns from my mother language( Estonian ) to English to be able to understand them. This is a result of living in the UK since 2012.

There isn’t much knowledge needed to create beautiful art when you just have a ball of wool and a crochet hock .

I have fallen in love with cotton or cotton/ acrylic mix over the last months and the love for them seems to be carrying on into 2021.

Here are my creations from 2020 which are also available on order

Bringing back the memories of last summer with them lovely hand crochet lavender hearts. The lavender is home grown which gives it a very personal touch.

Before Christmas I was making snowmen hoping to bring some more Christmas cheer to the people around me.

It doesn’t take much to make a person happy.
This was my last week’s project where I joined a crochet group on Facebook to get ideas for a little present for a baby. The end result is here and also the comment from the new family
