CAT Week

CAT Week: 23 – 30 September with Nicola @hookandtwist


Hello! This week’s theme is #craftastherapy_planning.

Are you a meticulous planner? Do you carefully read through the pattern, choose your yarn, check your gauge, make a swatch? Perhaps your craft needs exact measurements and tools?

Or are you more like me; a bit of a ‘play it by ear’ kind of crafter?

I’d love to see your planning process, be it colour charts, tools, materials, or just perhaps something that inspired your current project.


I can’t wait to share with you all! Have a wonderful week – Nicola @hookandtwist 😊

(Book is Modern Crocheted Shawls & Wraps by Laura Strutt, yarn is stylecraft special dk)


Wow! This is the kind of planning I always imagine I’ll do one day! Loving hearing from you about your planning process and seeing some wonderful ideas. Thanks for sharing these with us and @crafty_cc 😊


Your beautiful morning motivational message… brought to you by Kaisha @whimsyhen


More impressive planning shots here from clever crafters; @evacharliehr@naturecraftswithlove@thedizzylimits and @bloomthreads. I’ll be back later with some more pics from the #craftastherapy feed.

Have a great day!

It might be Spring here in the Southern Hemisphere but it’s obvious from all these gorgeous pics from #craftastherapy that elsewhere it’s Autumn! Love these rich, warm tones 🍁🍂🍁

A few more clever #craftastherapy_planning pics to inspire you this morning! I’ve seen some fab ideas for getting more organised with my crafting this week. Keep sharing them with us.

And of course we have our usual beautiful #craftastherapy for all your wonderful makes and our special new competition tag #lovecraftmentalhealth to tell us how crafting helps your mental health for the chance to win a beautiful #paintboxyarns pack, check our last post and @lovecrochetcom for details!


Well the week just flew by in a blur and I feel like there are so many lovely things I didn’t get round to sharing with you! I hope you all browse through the #craftastherapy tag regularly, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to share them all!
Thank you to everyone who joined in with the #craftastherapy planning theme this week, I loved seeing your processes and have been inspired to be more organised!
It’s my absolute pleasure to hand over the CAT account to the very talented Aki from @knitpurlhook. As always, please make her welcome 😊I look forward to our new theme for the week!
Nicola @hookandtwist 😘
