Grey…

Hello hello hello!

Thank you so much for your great response and support concerning my Vstitch square :) It made me sooooo happy watching you day by day in the previous week ordering my pattern and being as excited as I was crocheting it :) WOOOOW! THANK YOU! It means a lot to me when you love that much something I’ve made … It makes me proud and happy :) THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!

1

I’ve began joining my squares with grey and I totally fall for this beautiful color I used to hate… It is weird how people change… When I first began to crochet I hated grey and mustard… now they are between my favorites…

2

Grey… I think it gives a warm touch to a blanket… making it cosier and inviting to snuggle under… Don’t you think?

I love how the grey turned out when used as a joining color…

4

and I love how the colors changed when surrounded with grey….

5

This blanket will be a wedding gift…the wedding will be end of september … so I must hurry a little… but the squares work up so fast I think it will be finished in no time…

6

The lovely people that are getting married will have a grey couch in their new home … so the blanket will be perfect on it :) I hope that they will love it as much as I am loving crocheting it for them :)

You can find the pattern of the squares on the right sidebar of the blog… or HERE ;)

And I am joining my squares as I go with the grey round. You can learn more about the joining-as-you-go method in the wonderful blog of Lucy HERE ;)

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

V stitch square

Good morning lovely people!

I’ve been through some creative days this past weeks and I still can not understand what really happened with me… I was hit by Mrs Lola the little owl idea and once I did it and put its pattern online … the very next day… while drinking my morning coffee I was hit by another idea… a V stitch square … and I was all day long so very hyper excited about it…. couldn’t think or do something else… was like crazy… drawing on papers …and then throwing the papers in the bin… holding my hook and yarn… then throwing them on the sofa and taking back my paper and pen… crazy crazy crazy :)

After all these drawings and tryings, crocheting and unravelling, for long hours… I was like after a long gym session… totally K.O :D

Then I sat quietly, took again my hook and yarn and begin crocheting …

And then it was here…so clearly in front of my eyes…and I was like oh oooooh oh oh oh :) very happy… soooo very happy. I phoned my husband in its office to announce to him that I made a new square… and he did not understand why I was so talking like a crazy excited girl for just a square… poor guy :D :D

So, lovely people, after the huge success of the V stitch blanket on Instagram and everywhere on the net let me introduce you to the V stitch square…

1

my latest creation…my little baby :)

3

Isn’t it beautiful? I just LOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVE it :) I tried it using different yarns ….

2

The chunky one will be transformed into a cushion… and the others … I think a blanket with a deep grey joining….

4

What do you think? Isn’t it gorgeous?

5

It is an addictive kind of square…once you begin you can not let down your hook… anymore ;) And it works up fast… very fast…

6

You can make your square as big as you want… using it to make blankets, cushions, potholders, coasters, table runners and much much more :)

7

Once you crochet the first 4 rounds it gets very easy to follow… and you’ll enjoy hours and hours of soothing and calming crochet therapy :)

I draw the chart for this square, explaining the symbols used with US, UK and even French terms. It is a CHART not a written pattern. I included with the chart 12 step by step pictures of round 1,2,3 and 4.

You can buy it for 3.5 USD from  below:

Once the payment is done, you’ll receive WITHIN 24 HOURS a PDF file to download.

Hope you’ll enjoy this wonderful square :)

Sending you love and kisses

I hope you liked my V stitch blankie :)

Now for the technical info part:

Yarn: Nako Vizon a 100% acrylic yarn

Hook: 4.5mm

Beginning chain: 146

V stitch chart: HERE

Edging: Pompoms: Inspired from the lovely blog of Vanessa: HERE 

I made the pompoms and just tied them with the last row of my v stitch.

To make the pompoms: I used the Clover Making pompoms. size: small. These are super great and easy. You’ll make a pompom in less than a minute :) You can buy them online from HERE.

My piece of advice: Must try the Vstitch. It is an easy, relaxing, soothing, beautiful, textured and addictive stitch.

I’ll leave you now with a last pic of me under my blankie before making the edge. It was on Sunday morning. Excuse the sleepy hair and face ;)

Crochet is my therapy

Good morning beautiful people!

I hope that you are ok, happy and healthy wherever you are.

Today’s post is an update of my current crochet wips. What else to share with you my likeminded friends? ;)

1

Most of the time, specially in the evenings, I crochet so I don’t think much, I crochet so I don’t look at the news, I crochet so I don’t become crazy… That’s why every week I have a lot of crochet to share… It is my medicine, my anti stress, my kind of escape for a better world where everyone live in PEACE with everyone. The world has become an horrible place so much violence, blood and injustice that you have to find your way to not become insane :)

So, my dear friend, here is what I am up to these days… Working on 3 different wips

* A granny squares bedspread for our bed…just grannies surrounded with black… I am making now the squares will join them later… I am not even half way done but I love doing grannies, they are my favorite that’s why no hurry …I am taking my time enjoying every stitch :)

*And finally my latest addiction: The Vstitch blanket :) if you’re following me on Instagram or Facebook you already know about how much I am addicted to this project  :D You have to try it! It is … well… ADDICTIVE ;)

Well… my sweeties… These were the 3 wips I am working on at the moment. Crochet is my therapy to face this cruel world and the war that is threatening my beautiful country… I need your prayers my friends… I don’t know if I’ll have internet or no in the coming days due to the situation here :( It is really awful :( Please pray for my country and for its army… Pray for the innocent people… Pray for a better tomorrow…

Thank you so much dear readers… It really means a lot having you here :)

Peace and Love
