Thanks for visiting my crochet corner of the web!

Iā€™m Vytene, a keen crocheter originally from Lithuania now based in the UK.

My life takes me on many trips and most of the time I travel with my hobby in my handbag šŸ™‚ Hence the name of the blog!

I created ‘Hobbyist on the Road’ for those who…

…are looking for new inspiration for their next crochet project (you can find my patterns on Etsy HERE, on Ravelry HERE or on this website HERE);

…would like to get some advice before starting an Irish Lace project;

…would like to find like-minded crocheters. For you, I’ve created a Facebook group ‘Weekly Crochet Focus’ HERE. This group is most suited for you, if you get easily excited about a new crochet project but find it hard to complete it and as a result, have a stash full of unfinished WIPs. We, fellow crocheters, come along, help you FOCUS on your current crochet WIP and finish it.

Fun fact:

The dress I am wearing in the picture above is my very first attempt at an Irish Lace project.

I really don’t know why I started with a big project like that, it took me 2.5 years!!!

But now having survived the creative process (yes, it’s the survival of the fittest!) šŸ™‚ I am here to tell you it’s not as daunting or complicated as it seems.

You’ll find descriptions of my journey and experience with this and other projects on the blog.

See you there!
