Here are some technical infos for you between the pics:

* Yarn: Mirage (a 100% acrylic yarn). I don’t know exactly how much yarn I used because I used mostly scraps and 3 balls of 100g of white. I think it is a total of 10 balls of 100g each or maybe a little bit less…

* Hook: 3.5mm

* Square: A 6 rounds (the last one in white) traditional granny square. You can find its graphic HERE!

* Joining: I joined my squares with the last white round as-I-go. You can find more about this joining method in Lucy’s wonderful blog HERE!

* Dimensions: Appr. 240×100 cm with a total of 128 squares

* Edging: Clusters of 3dc (as for the square) but with a picot between the clusters instead of 1 chain. (To make the picots, I crochet 3chain and then 1 sc in the first chain). I love this simple edging and keep using it :)

This blanket is making me very happy. It transformed our room making it fresher and warmer at the same time :) I love that every time I enter our room I have a smile on my face :)

Crochet, my dear friend, is magical :)

I hope that you enjoyed these 10 pics of my latest blanket …

Sending you all my love through this post!

Take care

Colors make me happy

Good morning dear friends,

How are you? Hope that everything is OK and that you are surrounded by rainbows and colors everyday :)

Lat week was a colorful one in my small part of the world…

1

I’ve added more colorful washi tape and my collection is slowly growing ;)

2

I’ve played with my clover pompom making and enjoyed a lot these little colorful balls of yarn. Let me tell you something this clover thingy is totally addictive… so easy to make pompom that you feel like you want to add pompom everywhere around your house :)

3

I’ve made a garland to hide a little bit my hubby’s stereo (which I don’t like but he does ;) )…

4

In this pic you can see it more clearly :) Now, with the pompoms I don’t have a problem looking at it anymore :D hahaha…Crossing my fingers that hubby doesn’t read my posts :D

5

Some new colorful flowers bought from the local market made me very happy too :) I love fresh flowers…

6

I’m still not done with my granny blanket… joining a square every time I have a spare moment…

7

Still have 7 squares to add and then the edging…

8

Talking about edgings this book is great… I’m trying some of its borders but I have a feeling, a deep inside feeling, that finally I will make a very simple one … We’ll see :)

Have to go now my friend,

Some homely chores are waiting for me …

Wishing you love, sunshine and colors :)

Granny squares love

There is something about granny squares I can not resist… when I see a pic on the net or on the TV of a granny squares blanket I feel like my heart is beating furiously and I feel the urge to crochet one myself… It is like a kind of drug or something … the granny squares love… it hits you and you can not resist the temptation of starting something similar….

1

That’s what happened to me the day I started this granny squares blanket… It was the urge to crochet … just crochet grannies without something particular in mind… just a blanket of grannies surrounded with white… for whom? for which room? No idea… just a granny squares blanket and nothing else…

And then I began slowly but surely crocheting these squares…

2

One by one… with no previous idea of how big will it become…

3

And it became day after day bigger and bigger…

4

And I was soooo enjoying the hole process that I did not felt bored at all…

5

And I was happy watching the colors melting together in each little square …

6

Each little 5 rounds square was making me happy and in love …

8

And I started to join them as I go using Lucy’s super method (here) … and decided to make them become a summer runner for our bed :)

9

And then I made some math counting and decided that I needed 58 more to add….

10

So I crocheted the 58 ;) (the above pic is without them)

7

Now I need to join these 58 and make a good picots edging and I will have the most beautiful granny squares blanket on my bed and I will be the most happy woman on earth :D hahahaha

Can’t wait to show you my finished granny squares piece of love :)

Have a wonderful week!

Living slowlier…

Hello dear friend,

I feel everytime I write a new post that I repeat myself, talk about the same things, but that is what my life is all about…

IMG_3365

I love it… I love having habits… I love waking up each morning and do again and again the same things :)

IMG_3368

I love repeating the same chores…

IMG_3376

Home time (mostly spent picking up things from the floor), cooking time, crochet and coffee time, children time, family time, Hubby time…

IMG_3383

Each part of my day brings me joy..

.IMG_3397

Finding pleasures in the little things that is what life is all about…

IMG_3377

The more I grow older, the more I appreciate the little things, the more I enjoy moments of happinesss…

IMG_3399

I am living slowlier now … taking the time to look at the blue sky and smell a flower…

IMG_3386

Taking the time to add one square … just one square a day to my Crochet Mood blanket 2014…

(Above you can see the first 4 months of 2014)

Try to live slowlier my friend, don’t be always in a hurry, take time to enjoy the moment, life is too short…

I’m gonna make a coffe right now… do you want a cup ;) ?

Sending you my love through this post…

See you soon,

Sucrette
