We hope to inspire your creativity with the projects we share here. We are home schoolers and love to be different, learn new things and have fun. We try to be as open minded as possible and when people say you should do something in a certain way, we ask why? Why should we follow suit? We are all unique and process things in different ways, so we should be free to express ourselves in our own way.

Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.

I hope this brings you creative joy and inspiration.

The K-Phone

Toy phones are part of Korey’s love for technology.  He has quite a collection and he won’t part with any of them.  He saw a smartphone made from yarn in a book I had from the library and really wanted one but with a change - he wanted a flip phone.  I crocheted the top and bottom parts separately and put card inside to make it solid.  Korey chose the colours and loves that I called it the “K-Phone”.


I mainly worked in UK Double Crochet/dc [US Single Crochet/sc].  I stitched all the other features on by hand.

Yarn

Robin Double Knit/DK (shade - Light Blue 047).

1 x 100g (3.5oz/328yds/300m) ball.

Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light Worsted/DK].

Tension/gauge: 24 stitches x 32 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 3.25mm/UK 10 [US D/3] - 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the Robin yarn a 3 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was easy to work;

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- The feel of it wasn’t brilliantly soft but does get softer and floppy after washing.  It would make great cardigan’s, jumpers and accessories;

- The cost of yarn is very reasonable - I paid about £1.79 per 100g ball;

- Would I use this yarn again? YES.


PoundWorld DK (shade - Royal Blue).

1 x 50g (1.75oz/150yds/137m) balls.

Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light Worsted/DK].

Tension/gauge: 22 stitches x 30 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the Poundworld yarn 2 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was ok to work;

- There is a limited choice of colours available (if your local store stocks yarn anymore);

- It is not that soft;

- It is very cost effective at £1 per 50g ball, usually on a 3 for 2 offer, making them approx. £0.67p per ball;

- Would I use this yarn again? MAYBE.


I hope this brings you #creativejoyandinspiration.
