CAT Week

CAT Week: 6 – 13 Jan with Nicola @hookandtwist


Hello lovely craftastherapy-ers! Thanks Amanda @yarn_house for a beautiful wintery week.
It’s a sweltering 40 degree Celsius day here in New South Wales, Australia, so I’m wishing I could have some of that cool winter weather here!


This week’s CAT theme is #craftastherapy_somethingspecial. It might be special for all sorts of reasons. Maybe it’s special yarn you’d been saving, maybe it’s for a special person, maybe it’s the first time you’ve made something like it. Whatever the reason, share your make and tell us the story of why it’s something special. I can’t wait to see!
I’ll start us off with this pic of my Rainbow Confetti Blanket. It’s something special to me because it’s going to be my first pattern that I release! It’s only a simple C2C pattern but I’m super excited and I’m ticking it off my list of goals for 2018! I look forward to sharing all your something specials too 😊

Well how’s this for a beautiful start to our new theme? Something special indeed! Jackie @bloomthreads has created this lovely piece with her chosen ‘focus word’ for the new year ahead.

Pop over to her original post to read all the wonderful background to the piece. I love the idea of choosing a word as a new year focus rather than setting resolutions. Have you set yourself a word for this year? I haven’t but maybe I should!

I’ll be back later with more from our #craftastherapy_somethingspecial theme as well as our #craftastherapy feed.

Have a lovely day!


I love the stories behind these ‘something special’! Head over to their original posts to see for yourself (you won’t believe the journey that blanket has been on 😯!) .

My last something special share for the week and I couldn’t resist this little cutie, Jimmy the goat wizard 😍 🐐 🧙‍♂️
Thanks for sharing him with us @ring_beller!
Have a magical day everyone!

As is absolutely always the way, my week with you has flown by! .
Thank you to everyone who shared their special makes with us. .
It gives me great pleasure to hand you over to the beautiful and talented Jill @neverjillian! I love Jill’s work and can’t wait to see her theme for the upcoming week!
