about me

imageHello, my name is Uljana [ool-yA-na], welcome to all of you who are visiting my page!

My blog is here to inspire you and it’s also a place where I can share my creations with you!

I learned to crochet at primary school as it was part of the curriculum at the time. It was a bit of a chore and more of a compulsory school lesson rather than a creative hobby.

I didn’t pick up my hooks again until several years later. My sister-in-law had joined a crochet group and showed me what she had been making, this inspired me to dig out my yarn and begin designing and creating the trinkets you can see on my social media accounts.

I am often asked how long it takes me to make various crocheted items. Alongside looking after my two children, I like to crochet in my spare time and I don’t tend to measure how long each piece takes to craft. I enjoy it so much and usually lose track of time.

When I crochet, I don’t usually use patterns, I like to crochet freestyle and try to make what I see. The inspiration for my projects comes from everywhere including my kids, the Internet and my own imagination.

Please, take a look through my latest posts and creations, preferably with a nice cup of tea and some biscuits!

Drop me a line if you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you.

Uljana

    I love your work and it makes me want to develop my very basic crochet ability. Do you teach, give talks or demonstrate your skill? I have a sewing studio in North Staffordshire and know lots of my students would be delighted to learn from you.

    Dear Uljana,

    I do not crochet (well, for more than 40 years and even then, only basics). Would you consider a commission for Christmas Mice/Santa’s Sleigh? Kindly, Susan

    Going to make Santa sleigh and move I have a 2mm hook and 1.25 will they be ok. How big are them mice when finished thanks xxx

    • Uljana says:

      Hi Helen
      Which yarn/thread are you going to use? Dmc Petra size 3? I found 2mm hook is to big for that yarn and 1.25mm is to small.
      Just use any yarn you have at home , with any hook (smaller than recommended), it’s not even necessary to change the hook for the sleigh. The approx size of the mouse is 8cm (if using recommended yarn and hook).
      This year my mice are even smaller (3-4cm) because I use size 8 cotton thread and 0.75mm hook.
      Thank you very much
      Kind regards
      Uljana
