Stylecraft bloggers tour 2016

By |October 28th, 2016|colors and yarns, stool, stylecraft yarn|17 Comments

Hello, I am very happy to be part of this year stylecraft special aran and chuncky bloggers tour 😊 

The colors are just wonderful and when I received them I couldn’t pick  a project to use them. They are fresh, beautiful smooth and soft to touch. I received the chuncky pack 💜

Aren’t they gorgeous ? 

Now what did I do with them??? Tadaaaa

 A cover for a blue wood stool I had at home 💙

For the cover I used this simple yet effective pattern that tou can find here 💙

Alternating the granny colored rounds with the parchment small sc rounds 💙

I loved how it turned out…

The more I was crocheting the more I was in love ❤

There is something magical with the chunky yarn… it is fast 😊 and it finishes quickly 🐝 and the result is always lovely!

Once you reach the corners of your upper stool face, you continue without increasing in the corners (see the blue round in the above pic) so that the crochet don’t stay flat and take the 3D shape of the stool…

For the last round I chose to make a simple edging with picots ❤ I love picots ❤ They are my favorite for edging ❤

I really enjoyed making this cover… and love how it turned out ❤

Don’t forget to visit the lovely blog of the talented Sandra tomorrow to see what she has done with her pack 💗

Wooooow it seems like an eternity since I last posted!!! Hello sweet friends!! Sorry for being that bad blogger…. I am daily posting pics on Instagram and Facebook. I found it so much easier to post there instead of uploading pics and writing here. So if you are either on Instagram or Facebook please follow me there. I will be very happy if you do 😉

January is mostly done and it was a busy and productive month ♥

I’ve made a granny square scarf for me ♥

In my colorful world

Hello!

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.

1

But it needs one more round to add to the edging. A round not in grey.

3

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 ♥

2

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.

4

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 ♥

5

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.

6

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.

7

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!

8

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 ♥
