I breathe crochet :)

Hello there!

How’s everything?

This post is again about my hooky update ;) Sometimes I feel like I breathe crochet :)


I choose some yarn… bright and beautiful colorful yarn to start the girls ponchos… I love when children wear colorful clothes… Don’t you agree?

And I started the two ponchos together…


Christina, my oldest girl (8years) chose the yellow to begin with… Here is her poncho so far…


And Sarah (6years old) chose the fushia to start with :)


The yarn I am using is called Nako Lux Ninnos a very soft yarn with bright and lovely colors… It is worked with a 3.5mm hook…

I chose for the girls to make this granny poncho… It is very soothing and relaxing to work on… very simple pattern to follow once you make your first two rounds… I just love this design :)

You can find the pattern right here ;)


I’ve added also more stripes to my vintage stripy blanket…


I love the colors melting on this project… and I love to pick it on the evenings while watching TV with hubby ;)


And my crochet mood blanket is slowly growing. In the pic above you can see the first 20 days of February…


and on this one you can see it all (January + 20 days of February) …

What do you think?  Are you in love like myself? :D

You can find here the chart of the squares and how I am joining them together as I go with the last round ;)


I am back to my yellow filofax and using it every night to plan the next day is always a pleasure for me… I love when everything is clearly written on a paper… I am “old-fashion” I know ;)

Have to go now…

I’m wishing you a beautiful day!

    What is better than to breathe crochet? I am making your mood blanket with bigger squares, and colors I have picked out but not for my mood, sort of an anti-mood blanket I would say. I love it, Thank you,

  9. Angie, Hi. I have a very useful item that you might like. Since you crochet so much (as I do) this “crochet hook necklace” as I call it, will help keep your hook from being dropped while you are working. I was crocheting on my front deck and dropped my hook down between the wood slats. It was my favorite hook so I managed (with some help) to get it back. But with the “hook necklace” you can’t drop your hook. I often crochet (or knit) in other places (in the car, doctor’s office) and don’t want to lose a hook. If you would like to see mine, email me at and I will send you a picture. I would be happy to send you one or two for you to try.

    Those colours are so beautiful. I can’t decide which item I like best, well I can, all of them. Your choice of colours is superb. I am sure you must have had art training.

    Breathing crochet is a very good thing. :) Everything is looking wonderful. I just posted about my mood blanket which I started at the beginning of the year after seeing yours. It is so much fun to do and a great way to use up my scrap yarn too. Then in the 2015, I will have more space to buy new yarn. Lol!

    Hugs from Holland,

    Have a nice weekend!
