About Me

Hi I'm Carrie and I live in Ireland

 I love to crochet and when I can grab some free time I am without a doubt perched somewhere with hook in hand ready to create something. Crochet is SERIOUSLY my life! 

I created this blog so I can share with you all my own little designs that I've created over the years. All my patterns are very easy to follow and never contain any troublesome stitches...but best of all they are all FREE!!

A few facts about me:

I am a 34 year old Irish gal with a passion for anything creative.

Not married but am in a relationship with my beloved Martin for a little over ten years.

My daughter Sophia is my world and loves to pose in front of the camera. She is the model behind most of the photos in my patterns.

We have three dogs: a Japanese Spitz (Fintan), a Pomeranian mix (Pippin) and the baby of them all, an English Setter (Homer). Also added to the mix is our rabbit Lottie.

If you would like to ask me any questions please feel
free to contact me at phenomabombxx@gmail.com

In the meantime fill yourself a tea/coffee and have yourself a wee browse around my blog. I hope you all enjoy my patterns.
Happy Hooking!!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. It really does make my day when people tell me they have enjoyed my patterns. Many more patterns to come...

  2. Hi I love your patterns! Thanks for sharing <3

  3. Are your patterns with UK/International terminology/stitches or US please?

    Thanks :)

  4. Just found your blog and am exciting to get hooking!!! Thank you so much for being so generous and making such amazing crafts! I noticed you were in Ireland - do you happen to speak Irish?

  5. Hi Meg. Thank you so much for your kind words. Here in Ireland it's of course compulsory for school children to learn Irish however the majority of us grow up forgetting most of it! It's rarely spoken in normal day to day living but you will find small minorities in certain parts of the country that speak the language "full time". Have you ever tried learning it? It's a very difficult language to learn I think.
