Old forgotten wips

By | February 27th, 2015|Baking, granny stripes, Hexagons, Mug love, Ripple, Stripes, Uncategorized, wips|21 Comments

Hello!

center;”>A new post today about very old forgotten wips that I decided to work on again and finish.

6

I have a small problem. I often begin a project and leave it aside. And I work on various wips together too. So I have 2 small problems 😉 I have now on my hook 5 different projects (all are blankets). One of them is nearly finished. So 4 wips 🙂

7

When I was reducing the mess in my craft room last week I saw this old ripple blanket I started years ago. I remember leaving it aside when I discovered the joy of working with aran yarn. This ripple is crocheted with a thin DK yarn and a 3.5mm hook and I think that I got bored with the slowliness (Is that a word?:D ) this project was growing… (My english is soooo bad )

8

So I was like OOOOH wooow and decided to work again on it. And aside of this ripple was a granny stripes blankie started in the same period of time and with the same yarn…

9

I decided to give these two second chances (they deserve it, don’t you think?) and try to finish them. Yes, finish them 🙂

10

And finish also the others wips that are on my hook like the hexagons blankie…

2

… I am crocheting with the Debbie bliss yarn. I think that I am taking my time and working on this very slowly to make the pleasure last longer… Cause you know and I already told you that this yarn is a pure pleasure to crochet with…

1

And I’ll have to order more yarn…These are the leftovers…

3

and this is the size of the blanket right now… I surely need more yarn 😉

5

The baby V stitch blanket is done too. It is lovely and deserves a proper post… So next time there will be a tadaaaa post here 🙂 Watch this space 😉

I’ll leave you now with this pic of the delicious pineapple cake I’ve baked on Sunday. And wish you a wonderful weekend filled with little pleasures!

See you soon

Hello there!

This is not a long post just a quick one to say hello how are you? hope everything is good in your part of the world 🙂

My life is a little bit chaotic these days. It is always like that in November and December. It seems like time is running very fast and sometimes I feel like I wake up on monday morning and close my eyes and it is already friday evening… yes time flies… and I keep reminding myself to slow down… slow down and enjoy the moment… slow down and manage to do some crochet… an hour per day… not more… slow down and breathe 🙂

1

So I am right now edging my squares with black…

2

It is taking me like forever but I know deep inside that the result will be amazing 🙂

3

And I am working too on Sarah’s bedspread whenever I can. I’m progressing very slowly on it but ripples are always a joy to work on so I am not in a hurry to finish it… not at all 😉

4

And while I crochet, the girls are now completely addicted to the perler beads (hama beads). They spent most of their free time on these 🙂

5

Their little colorful creations make me very happy and I am proud of their creativity. The two birds of the first pic and the clown on the second pic are totally created by them and when I asked my 7 years daughter why her clown’s mouth is not centered in his face she replied that he is whistling and that made me laugh 😀

Well, my friend, this is all that I have to share with you today!

I am wishing you a lovely weekend with your loved ones!

Stay warm and enjoy the moment 🙂

The rainbow ripple

Good morning sweet people,

The baby rainbow ripple blanket is done and I can proudly show it to you 🙂

I’ve had some hard time taking pics of this beauty because the colors are really tricky to show as they are “live” but I did my best and believe me the “real” blanket is much more beautiful than in the pics. It is softer, the colors are melting together in much lovelier way…

Well, As long as you can not see it “live” 😉 Here are some pics for you 😉

Voila voilou 🙂 I hope that you liked my rainbow 🙂

Sending a rainbow of colors your way. If it is raining, if it is grey, put some colors in your heart and on your hook and the day will be a beautiful one 🙂

Wishing you a colorful weekend!

Goooooood morning!

Gooooood morning!

How are you today? A small peek into October

october

It was a really good month full of crochet 🙂

Now that my shawl is done I am now working on 3 different wips. Actually I have 4 wips but one of them is left behind. It is my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014. I am simply not in the mood to work on it. But I know deep inside that I’ll finish it one day…one day…but not now 😉

I love the fact that I am working on 3 different projects at the same time, picking one I feel like crocheting today and picking another different one tomorrow… that “method” suits me a lot and keeps me entusiastic about all my crochet wips 😀

No due time, no dead line. Just my hook, my yarn and my mood of the moment to choose a project from 3 😉

hex1

* An hexagon blanket. Crocheting it with the most beautiful and fantastic yarn. The Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran … so soft and wonderful… I love every stitch 🙂

hex2

And I love how it is turning out 🙂

* My granny bedspread. Just grannies… I love crocheting granny squares… 3 colorful rounds surrounded with black . I will need more than 270 squares so it is a long project for a double bedspread…

2

A project of patience. A project of LOVE 🙂 Hope to finish it this winter 🙂 Not sure about it…. But NO PRESSURE… Just enjoying the crocheting part 🙂 Enjoying every little square done 🙂

* And this soothing calming relaxing rainbow baby blanket. I love how it calms me when I pick it 🙂

I should always have a ripple between my wips 🙂

And I love how this one is turning out too 🙂

Well, my friend, these are my 3  projects of the moment. I love sharing them with you. I have today a full day of home duties and I simply hate that. So if you’re crocheting today think about me 🙂

Sending you all my love through this post

and Wishing you a happy weekend full of crochet 😉

Stay safe

Goooooood morning!

How areeeeee you my friend?

It’s been a while since my last post and I really missed being here… Life has been chaotic and I’ve been running like mad from morning till evening… I crocheted… crocheted a lot… that is a thing I do every day….I always find some minutes for a few stitches done between this and that… but no longer time for blogging… I post every day pics on Instagram and facebook… It is very easy and fast to do it…. but to blog is another thing… I have to sit… upload… write…etc 🙂 and count one hour or two for a single post 😉

So today is a catch up post … as I am juggling among different crochet projects… I thought about making an update to show you my current wips ….

* This is my granny bedspread started months ago. I am actually joining some of its squares (150 done so far) and adding 120 more to have it in a descent size  for our double bed 🙂

Don’t know if I’ll finish it on time for this winter… Hope so 😉

Pattern: The classic granny square

Hook: 4.5mm

Yarn: Nako Vizon 100% acrylic

* This third wip is actually taking all my free time this week. I am soooo in love with this pattern, this yarn, this color that I have difficulties letting it down for my home duties… 🙂

Pattern: South bay shawlette by Lion brand. It is a free pattern that you can find on Ravelry here. This is my second shawl made with this pattern. I looooove it 🙂

Yarn: Debbie bliss cashmerino aran. Color: Amber

Hook: 4.5mm

So, my friends, I hope that you enjoyed my current wips as much as I am enjoying crocheting them.

OOOOH these are 3 wips and actually I have 4.  I just remembered my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 left behind 🙁 Will catch up on this wip too and show it to you maybe next time 🙂 It is beautiful…

The weather is turning a little bit colder in my part of the world. It is fall and I love fall. I love taking out the blankets. I love snuggling under them on the evenings. I love my cosy and warm home when it is raining outside…

Have to leave you now …

Going to make a coffee and crochet one or two rows on my shawl before preparing lunch 😉

Take good care of yourself and see you soon

Lots of LOVE
