South bay shawlette…finally!!!

By | May 27th, 2013|"done", shawl, Uncategorized|42 Comments








Yes, it is FINALLY done 🙂 I’m very pleased with the result but I must confess I did not enjoyed the whole making process because it was my first one-color-project 🙂 I am not used to work with just one color …I get bored easily 😉

The pattern is lovely…It is a free Lion brand’s one and you can find it on ravelry under the name: South bay shawlette… here 🙂

If you like the pattern and you are used to work single color projects… I sooo recommend you give it a go 🙂

The result is beautiful! don’t you think?

Wishing you a beautiful week my friend

Hello lovelies!

How was your weekend?

Today is a special post cause it is a double tadaaa one 🙂 Yes two finished projects to show you 🙂

Number oooooooone….


My granny shawl … finally finished and looking gorgeous 🙂


I love it! Too bad it is already very hot now here and I’ll have to wait for september to wear it 🙁


Crocheted with my beloved 100% acrylic yarn nako vizon …


Following this very easy pattern … It was a real pleasure to make and I am deeply in love 🙂


As for number twooooooooo…It is a before-after kind of project…


A very ugly black wooden stool I totally forgot about it in my attic… and I saw it and thought: what if I make for it a crocheted cover and use it to hold one of my green plants 😉

soooooo there it is:


Granny square cover of course…what else ? 😉 made with leftover yarn ….


I love the contrast between the black and the other colours 🙂 mmmmh

and here it stands now…


What do you think?

Did you like my two “projects’?

Now, I have a long project for the summer…It is burning in my head and I started it last night…mmmmmh…I am totally totally totally excited about it… I love it too too much…and I can’t wait to show it to you…

So, stay tuned my friend…

Sending you love, kisses and sunshine 🙂

Good morning!

I’ve had the worst internet connection ever these past days and today it is still very bad but I couldn’t resist writing a new post…even though it is taking me ages to upload one single pic 🙁

How are you lovelies?

I’ve began a new baby blanket but this time it is for a little boy’s cousin 😉 due in july…

Here is the yarn…not my kind of colours but I think they are great for a baby…


what do you think? Do you love them?

and I started…


Yes, a ripple blankie… using this pattern 😉


I love ripples…It is one of the best things I like to crochet 🙂

And I’m loving how this one is turning out…



and I’m still working on the south bay shawlette too 😉


and and and…


I’m covering an old black stool with granny squares…yaaaay how I love granny squares…

Too many wips … one happy woman 🙂

Just a quick post today to say hello and to show you some progress I’ve made to my wips…


All the squares are done…the baby blanket is nearly finished…I just have to join the squares and make an edging 🙂




I’ve made also some progress on the two shawls I’m working on … I’m in love with the two…crazy in love!

And I must show you too two baskets I bought lately to hide all my wips …


Can you guess that I’m crazy in love with these two too? 😀


Now I have to leave you my friend…

I’ll be away from blogland next week as I have a little surgery to make on wednesday and I’ll have to stay in the hospital for a couple of days… How I hate hospitals 🙁

Please pray for me my faithful friends… I need your prayers…

Hoping to be back as soon as possible

Wishing you a very happy Easter!

4 and 6

Gooooood morning!

How’s everything? You are surely wondering what are these two numbers about…


4 is the number of wips ( work in progress) I’m crocheting right now… Yes 4… Is it too much? Can a girl have 4 wips? I can’t resist beginning new projects that is why I have so many wips…

Do you want to have a peek? Ok…

Wip number 1:


A new granny shawl… but this time I’ll keep it for myself cause I really really need a big shawl for spring and fall…

I’m loving these colors… The yarn is Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn with a 5mm crochet hook …


And the pattern, like for the first granny shawl, is here 😉

Wip number 2:


The baby blanket I’m making for my cousin. All the circles are done and I am slowly making the white border now 🙂 Very happy with these squares 🙂

Wip number 3:


The cowl with the moss stitch… Even though I’m not sure I can still wear it this year as it’s already almost spring here… I love crocheting it… stitch after stitch… I just love this stitch…did I said that before?


and finally Wip number 4:


Another triangle shawl but this time with just one colour following a free pattern on Ravelry called South Bay Shawlette


I fall in love with that shawl and could not resist beginning one … and I can tell you something …it is totally ADDICTIVE … and once you get used to the pattern it is very very easy to follow 🙂

These were my 4 wips…now for number 6… did you guess what it’s about?


It is my little Joseph who turned 6 months old this week 🙂


I’m crazy in love with this little guy … He’s my sunshine 🙂




Leaving you with this cute pic of my angel’s little feets …

and wishing you a beautiful day!

Love to all!
