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 ;)

* Colors: The colors of the rainbow: Blue, purple, light purple, red, orange, yellow, green, aqua

Voila voilou :) I hope that you liked my rainbow :)

And I hope that it will be cherished by both the mother and the baby boy due in February :)

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 :D

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

* 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 :)

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

A shawl…

Good morning my sweet friends,

I am a really bad bad blogger these days and I am sorry… really really sorry… I will try to post once a week… I promise…

Today, is a very special post to show you my latest finished project, my shawl :)

The pics are not good :( It is grey and rainy today and some of them are taken by my 9 years old daughter…

But the shawl in real life is beautiful :) I love it and I am wearing it every day and right now ;) Hope you’ll like it too ;)

Some infos about this shawl:

* It is a really really big shawl. Sooooo soft and snuggly you’ll never want to leave it :)

* The pattern used is the SOUTH BAY SHAWLETTE by Lion Brand. It is a free pattern that you can find on ravelry (or easily if you google the name).

* The yarn used is Debbie bliss cashmerino aran a wonderful wonderful yarn to work with… a real joy to crochet but expensive :(

I used 8 balls of the amber color and 2 balls of the baby pink color to make the 6 rows of the edging. I really love the contrast between the yellow-mustard-gold and the very-light-pink :) I think that the pink gave to the shawl a feminine touch don’t you agree?

* The hook is a 4.5mm one (7)

* This shawl is really really “me” and I know that it will be cherished and loved for many many years :)

Wishing you a joyful and sunshiny weekend

Kisses

Juggling among wips

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

Pattern: Ripples of happiness

Hook: 3.5mm

Yarn: Nako baby

* 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

Sucrette
