This was the official end of Sophie’s Universe but there was the option of adding a border, so I did.


Da Dar! Sophie’s Universe all finished.

19 days in the making learning American Crochet terms as I went along.


It was all made from acrylic yarn in stash.

If you are looking for a project to help you learn more crochet techniques, I can recommend this one. There were photo tutorials throughout and also videos for when you got stuck.

Sorry this blog post is 2 days late. I’ve been back home.


i made a pair of socks while travelling. I’ll share them next time along with some pics of home.

  • Gorgeous X 2! What else can I say? What can you do next? I mean it’s going to be hard to top that.

    Woooo-hoooo!! Feels like we should have a BIG party to celebrate this beautiful finish! I guess that is what we’re doing here in the comments! It is just such a SPECTACULAR finish, Melanie! It’s just outrageously gorgeous and brilliant and beautiful! As Terri say, this one’s going to be hard to beat. Kind of one of those once-in-a-lifetime type of projects. So VERY HAPPY for you that you had some good time home in Oxford. Look forward to news/pics from your trip! 🙂 Is that an Oxford cake?! Happy days settling in again… ((HUGS))
