I am Ana, a portuguese crochet designer.
Crafts have always been part of my life. As far as I remember there were always hooks, needles, yarn and fabrics around me, as my mother and grandmother were devoted crocheters, knitters and quilters.
I live in a small village near the sea, called Cascais, in a “crazy” house with my husband, 2 grown up children and 4 cats. My studio is my happy and safe place. Is where I can find peace and some mental balance.
I am crazy about crochet blankets. I love playing with textures and colors and I lost count to all blankets I have made so far. There is nothing like a cosy handmade blanket and they are never too many, right?
Can you imagine how happy I was when I was invited to write a book about crochet blankets? “Cosy Crochet Blankets to Snuggle Under” was release in April 2020, by TUVA Publishing. It features 15 colorful blankets made using different crochet techniques. There is a blanket for everyone, no matter how experient crocheter you are.
When I joined Instagram, I created #mycrushonblankies hashtag. If you also love crochet blankets you can check it for inspiration, or you can inspire others by sharing pictures of your creations there.
I hope you like this crochet corner of mine. You can also find me in the places below.
You can support my designing work with a small Donation. Every penny will be highly appreciated and happily used to buy new yarn for new designs. (Click on the picture below)
