Gooooood morning!

How’s everything? You are surely wondering what are these two numbers about…

Well…

4 is the number of wips ( work in progress) I’m crocheting right now… Yes 4… Is it too much? Can a girl have 4 wips? I can’t resist beginning new projects that is why I have so many wips…

Do you want to have a peek? Ok…

Wip number 1:

a-2nd-granny-shawl-wip1

A new granny shawl… but this time I’ll keep it for myself cause I really really need a big shawl for spring and fall…

I’m loving these colors… The yarn is Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn with a 5mm crochet hook …

a-2nd-granny-shawl-wip2

And the pattern, like for the first granny shawl, is here 😉

Wip number 2:

baby-blanket-squares

The baby blanket I’m making for my cousin. All the circles are done and I am slowly making the white border now :) Very happy with these squares :)

Wip number 3:

cowl-1

The cowl with the moss stitch… Even though I’m not sure I can still wear it this year as it’s already almost spring here… I love crocheting it… stitch after stitch… I just love this stitch…did I said that before?

cowl-2

and finally Wip number 4:

shawl-1

Another triangle shawl but this time with just one colour following a free pattern on Ravelry called South Bay Shawlette

shawl-2

I fall in love with that shawl and could not resist beginning one … and I can tell you something …it is totally ADDICTIVE … and once you get used to the pattern it is very very easy to follow :)

These were my 4 wips…now for number 6… did you guess what it’s about?

bb-Joe-6-months-old

It is my little Joseph who turned 6 months old this week :)

I’m crazy in love with this little guy … He’s my sunshine :)

Good morning ladies!

How are you? Time really flies …here we are already in march…and it is monday again :) I love the smell of spring of march :)

I’ve began two new wips I want to share with you today :)

A baby blanket for a cousin of mine who’s expecting a little princess in July :)

Here is a close up of the squares I’m making…

baby-blanket-wip3

I love this blanket… I added to its original square a round of dc …to add more white…

baby-blanket-wip4

I am loving how it is turning out and I’ve already done all the circles (the first two rounds of them 😉 )

The second wip is a cowl for myself…a very big cowl that I can fold two times around my neck….

yarn-for-cowl

cowl-wip1

I am working it using the moss stitch (1sc, 1ch, 1sc, 1ch) etc

I simply loooove that stitch :)

cowl-wip2

I am crocheting it with the “MIRAGE” a 100% acrylic yarn but instead of the 3mm hook suggested on the yarn I am using a 5mm hook to have a light effect…

Finally lovely ladies a pic of my bundle of joy who’s enjoying his new toy…

Monday…monday

Good morning my friend!

How are you? How’s everything in your part of the world?

Today, I want to show you my finished cowl, the beginning of a new ripple blanket for baby Joe and many other things…

First, there is something that made me super happy this week end:

One of my patterns has been featured in AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns…yaaay :) It is in a free e-book that includes 7 different ripple patterns. Please feel free to download a copy of this lovely e-book from this link:

http://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/Ripple/How-To-Crochet-a-Ripple-Crochet-Afghan-7-Free-Crochet-Patterns-eBook

Thank you allfreecrochetafghanpatterns :)

So I started a new blanket for baby Joe using this particular ripple pattern…Here is what I’ve been up to so far…

I’m loving so much the colors :)

I wanted to make, using the same colors, a moss stitch blanket for Joe…I started it but felt that it will never finish on time and that the winter will pass before he can use it… so I stopped…The moss stitch is wonderful but the progress you make with that stitch specially when you have a time-consuming-little-baby is very very slow…that’s why I chose to make a ripple instead…

Here is my finished cowl using the moss stitch:

Excuse the pics taken with my PJ :) but that’s what I’m wearing most of the days :) hahaha

The cold days are slowly coming in our country and the crocheted bedspreads are back again on our beds…

In Joe’s room:

In the girls’s room:

And in our’s too:

Our room is still waiting for its new beadspread “love birds” which is still not finished :(

and finally finally the love of my life…

Baby Joseph who’s now 2 months old

and who’s making his first smiles

Have a happy week :)

Big big kisses from the bottom of my heart!

Discovering a new crochet stitch…

By |November 12th, 2012|colors and yarns, Crocheted neck warmer, Moss stitch, My family|45 Comments

…and loving it a lot lot lot!

Good morning lovely people!

How are you today? Last week, I discovered on the net a beautiful crochet stitch and I searched for its pattern and found out that it is the easiest crochet pattern I’ve ever seen so I thought about sharing it with you of course 😉

Don’t know if you already know about it …it is called Moss stitch crochet and it is G O R G E O U S :) The kind of stitch I easily fall in love with cause it melts the colors used in a wonderful way…

No more talking … let’s see some pics ( I’m hearing you…) shall we?

So I started a cowl with some Nako Vizon Yarn using a 4mm crochet hook…

Let’s have some close ups…

 

Oh oh oh!! Isn’t it wonderful? Do you see the little touches of colors how they melt together? Are you in love like myself?

and and and… it is super super easy to make…1 single crochet, 1 chain etc etc :)

You have to google it for all the instructions… (just type moss stitch crochet) there is some youtube videos with step by step instructions and written patterns ect… all that you need to learn this very very easy stitch…

Now, I’m thinking about starting a blanket for Joe with that stitch…Mmmm I’m already planning in my head the color’s combinations :)

Should I finish joining the love birds blanket squares first?

 I really should…don’t know if I can… 😀

Have to leave you now… little baby is crying :)

I’ll leave you with a Christina’s pic…

Aren’t children adorable?

Have a wonderful colorful week my friend!

Something new :)

By |November 11th, 2011|Crocheted neck warmer|18 Comments

Hello sweeties,

I’m so happy to be with you today…I was really really delighted by all your comments concerning stripes of love :) THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

Yesterday I started something…I’m not very confident about it yet and I really really don’t know how it will turn out…will it become something wearable or will it go to the box of unfinished projects?

Did you guessed what it is? of course no :) well, it is a neck warmer kind of thing :) hehe I can see your surprised face from here :)

It will become (I hope so) a big-rectangle-kind-of-thing-you-put-around-your-neck-to-keep-you-warm :)

It is worked all in dc… in a big empty circle…big enough to go through my head… and when I’ll finish it I hope I’ll make one for every member of this family :) (crossing my fingers)

Today, I’m starting too something for Christmas … Hope I can show it to you next time…

I just love making small projects between big ones…. mixing between blankets and easy-fast-kind-of-projects :)

Have a marvellous week end!

and see you very soon :)
