What I am actually KNITTING ♥

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 🙂


I am now totally hooked 🙂


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


 I love how the colors melt in the knitting ♥


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


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 ♥



* 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.

August is gone…

August went really really fast this year and I still can not believe that we are already in September…


August was great. We went for a one week vacation to Club Med Palmiye Turkey and it was wonderful…


We spent a whole week with the children and I fully recharged my batteries 😉


I crocheted a lot in August… Finished my hexagons blanket (see previous post) and I started two bedspreads for the girls 🙂


I always wanted to make grannies bedspreads for my children. They have something I can’t explain. They remind me of my grandmother, the sweetness of my childhood and I really really love to crochet them…


They have a vintage touch I just adore 🙂 I am mixing different kinds of Stylecraft yarn. Mostly Stylecraft special DK, some Stylecraft alpaca tweed and some colors of the Stylecraft life range 🙂


I love the look of a granny square with mixed kinds of yarn ♥

For Christina my eldest daughter I’ll be joining the squares with parchment … and for Sarah, the joining color will be the dark grey (graphite) 🙂 My girls have very different characters and one is dark hair dark skin (Christina) the other is very blond (Sarah)


So contrasting grannies bedspreads they will have in their room 🙂 Can’t wait to finish them both 🙂


and  I am also still crocheting my ripple with the Stylecraft life Dk and loving it more and more ♥


August has brought some changes in my home too. We painted our walls and I chose the yellow mustard (my favorite color of the moment) to paint the wall behind our bed ♥


and a wall in our sitting room ♥


I just looooove LOVE LOVE this color. So bright, so fresh and sooo warm ♥

(The painting color’s name is honey mustard from DULUX)

That is all for today my dearest friends!

Have to go now…

Sending you hugs and kisses through this post ♥
