What I am actually KNITTING ♥

By | October 6th, 2015|"done", Bedspread, granny squares, knitted beanies, knitting, shawl, Uncategorized, wips|6 Comments

I learned to knit many years ago. And I remember that I did not really love it. Seing so many beautiful knitting projects especially on my IG feed I felt the urge to pick up my needles again 🙂 I’ve made a small search and read some reviews before I ordered some circular needles from amazon and that was it 🙂

1

I am now totally hooked 🙂

2

Totally addicted… I love it. ♥ I love the music it makes ♥ I love the beautiful sweet results ♥

3

 I love how the colors melt in the knitting ♥

4

Now I want to make some colorful beanies for my children, and for my 3 nieces too ♥ I want colors on my needles everyday ♥

5

Crochet is my first love and I am being unfaithful ♥ but that is ok because I can knit and crochet together.

And I can have many crochet wips along with many knitting wips too 🙂 hahaha and I simply love it ♥

Life is beautiful, enjoy the small pleasures ♥

Kisses

* The blue shawl I am crocheting  is by mypicot.com. If you wish to have the pattern just google: mypicot 10007 shawl and you’ll find it. I am making it without the fringes, instead I am crocheting 5ch.

The Stylecraft secret project ♥ A granny scarf

By | October 1st, 2015|"done", colors and yarns, granny squares, scarf, stylecraft yarn, Uncategorized|12 Comments

Hello,

1

This little blog of mine was very lucky to be picked up between the blogs that are part of the Stylecraft blog tour. Do you remember the competition that Stylecraft held to add a new colour to their range? Well they made a pack of 10x50g of beautiful colours (the 10 finalists of the competition) and decided to send it for free for crochet and knitting bloggers around the world to try out the new colors….

I am very excited and very happy today to show you what I did with these wonderful colors…

1'

A scarf… a granny scarf in these beautiful DK shades… Do you like it?

1''

I did it for my oldest daughter and now my youngest wants one 🙂

2

I am a granny squares lover and with a pack of 10 x 50g I was not sure I could make a blanket so I made granny squares and turned them into a scarft 🙂 Simple but simple is the best ♥

3

I left the egg blue aside for the joining (the winner) and made one granny round with each of the 9 other shades. and then round two with each of the 9 left shades and then round 3 etc etc

4

At the end I’ve had 9 “unique” squares of 6 rounds each 🙂 and I joined them as I go with a last round in the egg blue 🙂

For the square’s pattern, click HERE ♥

and for the joining method, click HERE5

Once joined together, I found that the scarft was a little bit short if turned two times around the neck so I’ve made a 10th square and joined it to the others 🙂

6

So, my scarft was made finally with 10 squares (of 7 rounds each) joined together with the 7th round in blue.

7

Then I made 14 little circles. To make a circle I crocheted 12 tr in a circle of 4 chain.

8

And with the joining color I added these little circles to the scarf. I crocheted 1sc, 5 ch then added the first circle to the chain with a slip stitch then 5 ch, then 1sc (on the scarf)

9

then 5 ch, then the second circle, then 5ch, 1sc etc etc

10

and I added 7 little circles to one side of the scarf…

11

and the other 7 to the other side of the scarf…

12

and it was done 😉 My daughter loves it and so do I 🙂 Now, I have to make a second one for my youngest girl 🙂

14

These new colors are simply fantastic. I felt in love with them as soon as I saw them (specially the mustard yellow one so warm and beautiful ♥) and you know what? You can win your own pack! Yes your own pack of these beauties!! Because my friend there is a GIVEAWAY of this pack during each day of the blog tour and a pack to win EACH DAY! ISN’T THIS FABULOUS???

Hexagons tadaaaaa

By | August 20th, 2015|"done", Crocheted blankets, Hexagons, Uncategorized|6 Comments

Hello sweet people,

2

My experience working with the Debbie bliss yarn was one of the most exciting. A pure pleasure to crochet with but very very expensive too. I think that once in a lifetime you must do something totally crazy and make a blanket that is gold worth 🙂

3

That yarn my friend is heaven. Totally heaven. The colors. The texture. Everything about it is heaven.

4

So no need to tell you again and again how I enjoyed making this blanket. I loved every second of it. Every stitch too ♥

5

♥ Yarn: Debbie bliss cashmerino aran

♥ Hook: 4.5mm

6

♥ Pattern: HERE

♥ Joining hexagons: As I go with the last round

♥ Edging: Very simple. 1sc, 3ch, 1sc all around the blanket

7

That blanket will live in our living room on the sofa and is already very cherished by everyone 🙂

8

I hope that it will be cherished for many many years to come and will always be associated with happy loving memories.

10

Love to all ♥
