About FizzyPetal

Howdy and welcome to my cosy, yarny spot on the internet!

Some of you may recognise fizzypetal.co.uk (and fizzypetal.com) from my jewellery making days.  Shortly after my 5th occurrence of cancer in summer 2015,  I shut down my business so I could focus on treatment and recovery.

Roll forward to January 2018.   FizzyPetal’s Crochet Chronicles was created as both a personal challenge and to share my creative and learning adventures with the wider world.  To become a proficient crocheter takes time and patience,  as you’ll see throughout this site.  My blog, like my crochet skills, is a WiP, evolving as I do in this beautiful, colourful yarny world.

The Giant Donut Floor Pouf was designed and written by Twinkie Chan and is part of a collection in the book Twinkie Chan’s Crocheted Abode a La Mode.  … [Read more…]

Ranger Blankets Finished!

Howdy everyone! Wow, what a crazy few weeks it has been in my little world.  Soaring temperatures, busier than usual schedules with end of school year stuff – I was struggling to sit down to post to my blog.  We finally have cooler temperatures, I’ve caught up on housework that was neglected during the heatwave, … [Read more…]

Quirky Crochet Kitty

I am a collector of patterns.  Added to my library in September 2016 was the Crochet Cat pattern by Repeat Crafter Me. I thought the quirky kitties absolutely adorable and imagined a myriad of colour possibilities. My daughter was invited to a birthday party this weekend.  Her friend loves ‘turquoise and bluish’, cats and horses.  … [Read more…]
