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…

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 🙂

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 😉

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

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

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 😉

Good morning sweeties,

I’ve been crocheting a lot…a really lot these days…It seems like the hook is burning in my hands and yarn is flying everywhere around me 🙂 A lot of creative ideas are melting in my head and I feel every night that I am running out of time to make all I want to make and I wish that the days were longer (a 48h day is good for me 😉 )

I am working on more than 4 wips at the same time…Yes, each day I am picking 3 different hook sizes and working with them… crochet crochet crochet every second of my free time 🙂

Here are some…yes some of my wips of the moment…

1-poncho

* My poncho: The front is done…All the circles of the back are done too…Still have to join them and sew the front and the back together and decide on an edging 🙂 So, a tadaaa post very soon 😉

* The crochet mood blanket… January 25… 25 squares done so far…I am adoring this project 🙂 and how the squares of my moody days are coming along together beautifully…

5-new-granny-cushion-(1)

6-new-granny-cushion

* A new granny cushion with the wonderful mirage yarn 🙂 I love the colors of the mirage range but it is a thinner yarn worked with a 3.25 mm hook so small projects are done with it (You see I am not so patient to work a blanket with this yarn 🙂 )

7-secret-project

* A new secret project with a chunky yarn will be revealed to you very soon I hope 😉

Blogging about my wips is a way for me to stay focused on them and remember to finish some before beginning others. That don’t always work … but I am trying my best 😉

Wishing you a wonderful creative week!

Kisses from the bottom of my heart

Oh hello lovelies!

It is such a beautiful day today and I’m in love… deeply madly crazy in love with my latest finished project… Are you ready to fall too? I’m sure you are 😉

table-runner-1

Let’s have some close up pics …

table-runner-2

table-runner-4-close-up

I love love love this simple graphic square…I think it is simple but beautiful… and I love it even more because it is the fruit of my imagination… my own drawing… 🙂

table-runner-5

and I love the whole result…the table runner in all its glory…all these bright and beautiful colors mixed together in a lovely patchwork…

table-runner-6

I feel happy whenever I enter the sitting room 🙂

table-runner-7

Now for the part you are all waiting for: The how to…

I crocheted this table runner with a thin cotton yarn called “Camilla 6/4” and a 2mm crochet hook. I made it by joining as I go the squares together in a randomly use of colors…

I drew for you my friend the graphic chart of this square… It is right here:

graphic square

As you noticed, the joining part was made as-I-go with round 5 (in black in the chart) and it is done where I put the arrows…(Instead of the middle chain a slip joining stitch)

Each square was done in a different color and I made a very simple edging (1sc, 4ch, 1sc) all around the whole table runner…

I am in love with it (did I already told you that?? I don’t think so :D) and I think that this graphic square will be beautiful if used to make coasters, cushions or a summer blanket why not?

So, my lovely friend, I’ll have to leave you now with a last pic…

table-runner-8

and wish you a wonderful day!

P.S: I draw all my graphic charts including this one using Corel Draw (a graphic design software) as many of you keep asking me 🙂

and one last thing: Some of you asks me if I can explain some of the charts with written words and I am so sorry about that but I just can’t do it sometimes… I am unable to do it 🙁 It is too difficult for me as I myself cannot follow an english written pattern 🙁 not yet! but one day… 😉

Kisses to all!

Weekending

Hello!

How was your weekend?

Mine was good …at home…

fall_in_love_8_rows1

I’ve made some progress with “fall” in love…8 rows already…

I always make a square with each color…without finishing the last joining round…and then I lay them all on the floor to choose the place of each color…

fall_in_love_8_rows2

…writing the colors on a piece of paper…(very bad memory 🙂 )

fall_in_love_8_rows3

I love how this blanket is turning out…

and while I was in my own paradise…the girls were coloring TOGETHER…yes together … this don’t happen everyday 😉 and it always ends with a fight 🙂

and baby Joe was gently napping …
