hello all! my name's Lol and I'm the face behind lollypoppets.
i have a full time job in facilities management but i've been a hobby crocheter for a good few years on and off and really decided to focus my efforts after the very unexpected and devastating death of my only child Penelope who was two and a half....Crocheting kept my brain and hands busy and was the perfect distraction.
lollypoppets is all about comfort, warmth and being snuggly (in my family we call it schmumfy or comfers cozers - when you're all snuggled up warm and comfy just relaxing).
I mostly make huuuuuge blankets which are amazingly snug in the colder months but can be used as picnic blankets in the summer months, or just as cute throws in general.
and I also love creating blankets matched to people's home decor for something truly custom and unique!
other creations in my repertoire include: crochet toilet roll covers, cotton crochet planters and bowls, and I really enjoy making one of a kind little pots out of jesmonite when possible!
