Current Monday mood: 😴 How early is too early for a 30 year old to go to bed πŸ˜‚πŸ₯›πŸŒ

Charlie’s lifting 50g these days. πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜œπŸ˜ That’s TWO Ricorumis πŸ’ͺ🏻 πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ They might look like dinky little balls of cotton but they pack a punch. (I should probably make some amigurumi with them rather than messing around πŸ˜‚ Any quick ami pattern suggestions? I might have to revisit my fave @picapauyan book) 😘 #yarnforobjects #lottieandalbert x

Eep!! Happy Saturday! I’m so excited to be guest moderating the @craftastherapy account this coming week 🀫 - can you guess what my theme will be?! β˜ΊοΈβ˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» #lottieandalbert

Happy Granny Square Day! 🍭✨🌈 My granny might be a bit big πŸ€¨πŸ€” I’m off to make a virtual blanket from the #grannysquareday2018 hashtag and will be posting some free granny patterns on my stories β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•πŸ™ŒπŸ» let me know what you think x

I’ve had a bit of an β€˜a-ha’ moment recently. I’ve spent a lot of time beating myself up for certain character traits. For instance, this time last year I was obsessed with this little drop-shadow letter banner pattern and had stayed up late drawing up graphs for half the letters in the alphabet and crocheting them like crazy. Then we moved house, I got distracted with newer and more exciting projects (the new ones are always more exciting) and I haven’t touched it since.
But the fact that I’m always eager to move on to new projects, in search of the next big thrill, and perhaps a little bit impatient, actually serves me really well in my job, where I have to dream up 10 new projects to fill the pages of Mollie Makes, every month! So here’s to embracing them as character traits rather than flaws πŸ₯‚ Has anyone else found a way to work with rather than against their instincts?! And who knows, maybe I will come back to the banners one rainy afternoon! β˜ΊοΈπŸŒ§πŸ’•

Episode 27 of my crochet video podcast is now live! βœ¨πŸ’–πŸ™ŒπŸ» I’m talking about making scarves in a heat wave, crochet Pom Pom trickery, and why I feel so uneasy about gifting handmade things. I’m also talking about this new shawl design and the colours in this @marrineryarns Empress yarn 😍 will you be watching β˜•οΈ?! The link’s in my bio πŸ˜˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Living my best crochet life πŸ˜πŸ’• Happy Saturday, what are you up to today?? I’m brunching with friends, hanging out with my πŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌ and then uploading a new podcast later πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ€žπŸ»πŸ’– eek! #lottieandalbert

✨Before and after!!✨ I just crocheted myself a fluffy Pom Pom and could not be more proud of my baby 😝 Swipe to see the before! All that acrylic yarn you had in your stash πŸ‘‰πŸ» turn it into fluffy poms! Vegan in need of faux fur πŸ‘‰πŸ» all yours. I mean, don’t get too excited but they may even be washable 😱😍 Would anyone like an instruction vid? Let me know! βœ¨πŸ’–πŸ’• Yarn is Regency chunky from @marrineryarns #lottieandalbert

No, YOU’RE making scarves in August during a heatwave πŸ˜‚πŸ˜† (no but really, is it too soon to start making for πŸ€­πŸ‚πŸπŸŒ¨??) I’m thinking of offering a few one-of-a-kind scarves like this as ready to buy items πŸ’• let me know if that’s something you might be interested in?! βœ¨πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’•#lottieandalbert

Sometimes you have to swatch and sketch and measure twice, other times you just have to make a GIANT YARN BALL when it calls to you. So into this right now. Just look at all those colours together 😍 Anyone else normally an overthinker?! In the olden days when I used to socialise (πŸ˜‚) it was a running joke that my friends and I would spend the majority of a night out talking out where we should go on our night out πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ•ΊπŸ»β˜ΊοΈ #lottieandalbert ✨credit to @totally.mental who I borrowed this quote from!!πŸ’•
