Did you spot my kickers in the pic above… I am in love with my old comfy shoes…they remind me my childhood… and I always have a pair to wear when I’m feeling a little blue 🙂 They cheer me up 😉

I breathe crochet :)

Hello there!

How’s everything?

This post is again about my hooky update 😉 Sometimes I feel like I breathe crochet 🙂

1-yarn-for-the-girls-ponchos

I choose some yarn… bright and beautiful colorful yarn to start the girls ponchos… I love when children wear colorful clothes… Don’t you agree?

And I started the two ponchos together…

2-christina's

Christina, my oldest girl (8years) chose the yellow to begin with… Here is her poncho so far…

3-sarah's

And Sarah (6years old) chose the fushia to start with 🙂

4

The yarn I am using is called Nako Lux Ninnos a very soft yarn with bright and lovely colors… It is worked with a 3.5mm hook…

I chose for the girls to make this granny poncho… It is very soothing and relaxing to work on… very simple pattern to follow once you make your first two rounds… I just love this design 🙂

You can find the pattern right here 😉

6-vintage-stripy-wip

I’ve added also more stripes to my vintage stripy blanket…

7-vintage-stripy-wip

I love the colors melting on this project… and I love to pick it on the evenings while watching TV with hubby 😉

8-cmb-feb-so-far

And my crochet mood blanket is slowly growing. In the pic above you can see the first 20 days of February…

9-cmb-january-and-feb-so-far

and on this one you can see it all (January + 20 days of February) …

What do you think?  Are you in love like myself? 😀

You can find here the chart of the squares and how I am joining them together as I go with the last round 😉

10-yellow-filofax-love

I am back to my yellow filofax and using it every night to plan the next day is always a pleasure for me… I love when everything is clearly written on a paper… I am “old-fashion” I know 😉

Have to go now…

I’m wishing you a beautiful day!

This week…

was a good kind of hooky week…

A lot happened around here 🙂

My crochet mood blanket 2014 is coming up nicely…

cmb---feb14-2

I am loving working on it and sometimes I feel like I want to finish it all and not do just one square per day 🙂

cmb---feb14-1

These are the first 14 days of February 🙂

I chose some yarn to begin a new project too…

vintage-stripy-yarn

A vintage stripy blanket…

vintage-stripy-1

This blanket is crocheted with rows of trebles only… I began with a 150 chain and I am working the tr in the space between the trs of the previous row … that is giving to it this lovely effect 🙂 I love it so far… and I’ve progressed on it too 🙂

vintage-stripy-wip-1

It will be a big gorgeous blankie I am sure already 🙂

I love how the colors are melting together…this reminds me a little the moss stitch effect …but this is a lot quicker to crochet 😉

vintage-stripy-wip-2

Working on big rows is very soothing and calming…

vintage-stripy-wip-3

The best medicine when your children are grumpy and sick 😉

vintage-stripy-wip-4

And I am also still working on my granny with white border…

white granny wip

and enjoying it 🙂 OOOH the pleasure of crocheting granny squares … I just love crocheting them…

new yarn love

I’ll leave you now with this last pic of some gorgeous yarn I bought just for the pleasure…without any project plan for them in my head 🙂

And this is for me the best kind of shopping on earth 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend my friends, thank you for your visit and see you very very soon 😉

Kisses and love

Sucrette

P.S: You keep asking me about the yarn I use for my projects. It is mostly turkish brands (Nako, Mirage)  I buy from my local store here in Beirut. And unfortunately you can not find them online 🙁 They are very similar to the Stylecraft special DK  a brand you can order easily online 😉

Bye bye January

Hello there!

January is gone … Here is a quick update to share with you…

4-crochet-moood-blanket-2014-january

My crochet mood blanket 2014 – January

It’s been a good month. Some dark squares here and there mostly caused by the ugly situation in my country. But it was a not-so-bad month for me .

I love how this blanket is turning… I love how I can see clearly the whole month in a rectangle of crocheted small squares 🙂

I love my moody project 🙂

1

Home wise, a new couch has been bought for the sitting room. Our sitting room is a big one. Now we can lay down all of us five, feets up and curly under warm crocheted blankets 🙂

Yes, this couch is huge… really HUGE… It is a BIG Ushaped couch …

2

No, you can not see how huge it is… On the next pic you’ll see it clearly 😉

3

But believe me my house is not always as tidy as on this pic… This is a very rare pic  I’ll have to look at from time to time 😉

9

And finally this is my poncho coming to an end 🙂 It is 99% done and I am now crocheting the last row of its edging .  A tadaaa post is coming very soon 🙂

I love my poncho and I keep trying it on and dansing in front of the mirror like a stupid teenager 🙂 Love can make you stupid I know 🙂

10

That’s all for now 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting!

See you very soon my friend!

Take care

Sucrette

P.S: Thank you so much for your support concerning my heart cushion pattern. It really means to me a lot  🙂

You can find it from now on with the other patterns on the right sidebar of the blog!
