The box of sweets blanket 💛💜💚

By |September 24th, 2016|Crocheted blankets, for babies, stylecraft yarn|3 Comments

Hello my friend,

I finished yesterday a new baby blanket: the box of sweets blanket.

This blanket is for a baby girl due in February 💜

I love how simple the design is and yet so effective.


I love the colors and the little colorful bits of round4 in each square.

I love the edging and the little picots.

It is crocheted with stylecraft special DK and a 3.5mm hook.

I hope it will be well cherished by both the baby and her mom for many years to come 💜
Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

Crochet, tunisian crochet and knitting 💜

Hello,

I don’t know what is happening with me these days. I keep starting different projects, learning new techniques and very much enjoying it 😊 I have now more than 10 wips 🙈 but it is not a big deal… I will finish them… I know I will…

Last week I learned tunisian crochet and began a cushion…

Then I started two different baby blankets (I have many pregnant cousins around 😊)

The first one is made with different colored squares joined with cream…

The second one is a mixture of V stitch and granny…

And reminds me of a field of tulips 🌷

And then I came upon a lovely pic of a knitted blanket on Instagram and couldn’t resist learning that particular square that looked very complicated to me and my poor knitting skills…

But it was quiet easy after watching some youtube videos 😊

It is called a memory blanket. And the squares, miltered squares.

Now I am completely addicted… I wake up each morning earlier than everybody in the house just to knit and knit and knit… I loooove it ❤
Wishing you a lovely day my friends,

Kisses

The harlequin blanket 🔶💖🔷

By |August 21st, 2016|Crocheted blankets, for babies, harlequin|6 Comments

Hello lovelies,

I am very happy to share with you today my latest creation: The harlequin blanket🔶🔷


This blanket is for my baby girl’s cousin due in December 💖 I enjoyed working on it. This is my first harlequin blanket but for sure not the last.

I found it very relaxing working on the losanges and very fast too. The blanket is easy to do and the result is really lovely.

I crocheted it with a 3.5mm hook and the Stylecraft special dk and Stylecraft life dk yarn. I love their range and choice of colors and the yarn is lovely to work with.

You can find the pattern and joining technique in the wonderful and so inspiring blog of Solgrim HERE

This was one of the many blankets I really enjoyed working on… I hope that it will be well cherished by both the baby and her mum ❤

And now I can’t wait to start another one 😊

Wishing you a colorful Sunday,

Love

A granny squares love story ❤

By |August 10th, 2016|Crocheted blankets, granny squares, stylecraft yarn, wips|8 Comments

Hello,

I am a granny squares lover. They are my favorite to crochet. I can’t resist them 😊

While cleaning my craft room on Sunday I found 23 squares crocheted long time ago with dk yarn. Oh joy! It was the perfect timing for such a discovery 😊

21 small and 2 big squares joined with light cream ❤ I couldn’t wish better…

So I decided to make the smaller ones as big as the biggest while waiting for my yarn delivery to finish my harlequin blanket (see previous post) and finish one or two squares per day…

I am crocheting with Stylecraft special dk, Stylecraft life dk and the new Stylecraft Batik. I love mixing these yarn together and the effect of the plain colors next to the batik ones is just beautiful ❤

Right now I am planning to make the 23 squares big and continue on crocheting 10 rounds squares because the effect is soooo soothing and calming on these summer evenings…

And who knows…maybe… I will be able to make a winter bedspread out of these big squares.. it will be fantastic and I am already imagining it on my bed…mmmmmh ❤

Wishing you a beautiful day my friends,
Love
