Today is a double tadaaa post dedicated for ponchos
The girls ponchos are done and they are looking gorgeous wearing them today
I enjoyed every single stitch crocheted… They are very very easy to make…
Using a soft acrylic yarn called baby nako and a 3.5mm hook …
I made a super simple edging with picots as a last round: 3dc…3chain+1sc in the first chain …3dc etc etc
I love picots… and I think that they are very cute as edgings
Here are the ponchos done and already in good use
The girls are in love with their ponchos and I am very very happy that they love them that much proud mama
You can make your own poncho following this pattern right here
It is very simple to make and you’ll enjoy crocheting it
Leaving you with a last pic of my Sarah who lost her first tooth last week
Have a super day my friend
and happy crocheting!
"done", My family, poncho
It’s been a crazy chaotic kind of week… very fast… running days… and I’ve had barely time to hold my hook…
I sometimes sit… and take long breathes and remember to enjoy the moment…sit…breathe…and enjoy…
sit for some minutes… a little bit… do something I love…like crochet… just for a few minutes and then run again… Life is sometimes crazy…but it is beautiful
This post today is a quick one with few pics just to say hello… I’m still here… will try to be back very soon… still working on my wips and… thinking of you in your corner of the world… enjoy your day and your weekend too

The ponchos of my girls… almost done… yes… almost… Hope to finish them before spring
Did you spot my kickers in the pic above… I am in love with my old comfy shoes…they remind me my childhood… and I always have a pair to wear when I’m feeling a little blue They cheer me up
Back to my coffee, before the children wake up and the weekend starts

* Looking around at my messy house after the children has gone for school and daycare and enjoying being alone… completely alone… just me and myself
*Progressing on the girls ponchos and dreaming of spring
* Drawing and coloring with my oldest while she was feeling sick and stayed home. This girl is very talented with choosing and mixing colors and I am proud
* Enjoying my one square/day of the Crochet Mood Blanket 2014, watching it slowly grow and dreaming about how big it will be once done (January and February in the pics above)

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?
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!
