The first completed project for 2015

Good morning lovelies

I am sure you already guessed. The bedspread is done! Houraaayyyy! Tadaaaaa :)

1

I am dancing with joy around it :) feeling proud :)

2

My labor of love is finally done and I looooooove it from the bottom of my heart :)

3

324 (18 x 18) granny squares crocheted with love… 3 colorful rounds and a black fourth round each :) Joined with rows of sc in black :)

4

This bedspread was crocheted with Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic aran yarn and a 4.5mm hook. I used 12 x 100g of the black yarn and leftovers colored yarn (I really don’t know how many balls)

5

I used a granny simple edging of 3 colored rounds (green, purple and dark orange) followed by a round in black with picots ( 1picot = 4ch and 1sc in the first chain ). A very simple edging but I loooove it.

6

You can find the pattern of each square HERE

Sorry for all the pics :) but I am sooo happy I have to share with you :)

Hope you love it as much as I do :)

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

Juggling among wips

By |October 14th, 2014|colors and yarns, Corners of my home, Crocheted blankets, for babies, granny squares, rainbow, Ripple, shawl, wips|16 Comments

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: 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
