The title of that post could be the bedspread tadaaaa but I will not make a proper tadaaa post now. I will leave it for later.
The first bedspread is done. And it is beautiful. Really beautiful.
But it needs one more round to add to the edging. A round not in grey.
But I will not do it now. I need to finish the second bedspread (yes they are 2) and then make a proper edging for both and a proper tadaaa post for both too. Because they will live in the same room on twin beds ♥
I love the simplicity of this plain design. I love how the corners make shapes when joined together. I simply love it ♥
You can find a pattern for both the square and the joining method here.
Now I started the second one. Same design. Same colors. Same yarn (Stylecraft special dk and stylecraft life dk) and same love ♥
And I started a ripple blanket too ♥ I have a really really big stash of aran yarn and had some days ago a ripple envy ♥
A very big colorful ripple (one color by row) to keep me busy this coming winter. Want to join me? I will be hooking this blanket along with the second bedspread.
I will be using all the colors of my stash even the ones that I don’t really love. Not very sure about the result but a little voice in my head keeps saying yes to me.
And I must confess that even though I hold my breathe every time I add a new color, I am loving it more and more ♥
The pattern I am using is my loving ripples of happiness and you can find it here. So come on! join me! Let’s destash! Let’s create something beautiful from our leftovers. A rainbow of beautiful ripples ♥ Let’s hook together during the cold months this soothing colorful blanket 🙂 I will be really really happy if you join me!
And I am still knitting my second trendy chale. It made me very happy to see that some of you joined me in this knitting project. I love my first trendy chale* and wear it every day. Can’t wait to finish this second one too.
*All about my trendy chale in this post 😉
Have to leave you now…
Wishing you a really really lovely day ♥
Stay safe ♥
My trendy chale is done. What is it I hear you asking. Well it is a simple knitted triangular shawl that I felt in love with in my french IG feeds. It is very trendy in France and I keep seing new ones, colorful ones and it is very inspiring ♥
So, I made my own ♥
It is very easy to knit. You just knit knit and knit. You start with 3 stitches and you increase one stitch in each row. To increase you knit twice the last stitch of every row. Voila 🙂 Very simple, very easy, very soothing, very calming and very very very snuggly ♥
Once you reach the high you desire (80cm for mine) you stop. And you’ll have a lovely shawl to wrap your neck with♥
♥ Yarn used: 5 x 50g of Debbie bliss cashmerino aran in Burnt Orange (OHHH How I love this color)
♥ Needles: 8mm
Now I started a second one in a deep lovely green (Scheepjes merino soft)
Have a lovely day!
I finished my blue shawl last week. It was a lovely shawl, easy pattern to follow and a wonderful yarn to crochet with…
Some infos about this shawl
♥ Yarn: Debbie bliss baby cachmerino blue (About 9 x 50g with the fringes )
♥ Hook: 3.5 mm
♥ Pattern: The pattern is by mypicot.com You can find it if you google: mypicot 10007 shawl. I followed the exact chart but did not crochet the fringes on the sides. Instead I crocheted 5ch 😉
The first bedspread I am crocheting for my girls room is mostly done too. I still have 18 squares to add and an edging of course 🙂 I am totally completely in love with it ♥
and I am already planning the second one 🙂 Grannies… yes… my eternal love ♥
*The yarn I am using for both bedspread is Stylecraft special DK and Stylecraft life DK*
And I am also knitting. I want to finish my “trendy chale” before the cold. I love the color sooo much. It is the burnt orange of the Debbie bliss cashmerino aran and the needles 8mm 🙂 The “trendy chale” is a triangular very simple shawl and you increase just one stitch in each row. I love the simplicity of the design and the warm and snuggly look of the final shawl ♥
And I am still into knitted beanies. I am loving the chunky look of them knitted with chunky yarn. Here I am using the drops andes yarn ♥
That’s all my friends! All about my actual creative projects ♥
Stay safe, take care of yourself and see you very soon 😉
October is here. Autumn is here. I love autumn. I love the colors, the “normal routine” in our life, the back to school and the mummy free time I have back in October 🙂 It is a lovely month not too cold not too hot in my part of the world. The light is beautiful. The perfect weather for crocheting and knitting too. I am working on 5 different wips and I am loving it 🙂 Yes, maybe it is too much but I love it. I don’t ever get bored of a project.
In crochet, I am actually joining the last squares of this beautiful blanket ♥
I wanted it to be a bedspread for one of the girls bed but I changed my mind when I tried it on the bed…
I changed my ming and decided to give it as a wedding gift…
and start a new bedspread for the girls…
a classic kind of colorful squares joined as I go with a last round of 1sc 3ch 1sc all around the square and in the 4 corners…
I love the simplicity of this design and find it better for a bedspread. What do you think?
I love how colorful it is and how simple too ♥
And how about knitting? Knitting is now my new addiction and I am totally hooked… I loooooove it…
and I can’t stop making colorful beanies for everybody 🙂
I started also a “trendy chale” inspired by my IG French ladies. It is a triangular very simple shawl very cosy and warm. And the soothing effect of knitting this simple stitch and increasing one stitch in every row is wonderful. My favorite project for the evenings…
It is growing very fast and the color is a deep orange very automnal. It is really beautiful but I can’t seem to catch it correctly in these pics. The yarn is lima drops and I love it♥
I still have my light blue shawl that I did not show you in this post . I will show it to you next time. It is very slowly growing. I really wish I had 48 hours a day 🙂
Wishing you a beautiful thursday!
Sending you love and hugs
