It is done! YAAAAAAAAAAAAY! It was done last week but could’t share it because the children ( all 3 ) were sick at home. Today the girls feel better and are back to school. Baby Joe is still at home but he is feeling much better too So, today, life is good again and I thought about sharing with you my poncho
You know that I don’t like to see myself in pics so this is me without the head
I think I will not wear it outside the house… It will be a kind of “wearable blanket” that keeps me warm while I move around
Hubby is jealous
It was crocheted with a 100% acrylic yarn called Nako Vizon. It is very similar to the Stylecraft DK but a little little bit thicker. The hook used is a 4.5 mm one.
A white background would be better for this pic I know…
The squares of this poncho were joined as-I-g0. I did the front and the back separately and sew them together at the end. You can find the chart of the squares on the right sidebar of my blog under the name : circle in a square. (I don’t know why I can not make a proper link here Sometimes I just don’t understand this computer
Some close up pics
with curious little hands
I used the moss stitch to make the edging. (1sc-1ch-1sc etc etc ) and added some picots for the last round
Did I say that I am in love with my poncho? No not yet…
Well… I AM MADLY TOTALLY TRULY IN LOVE WITH MY PONCHO.
I am right now wearing it while writing this post and I want to make two more for the girls Maybe with a thinner yarn and without the black background of course … We’ll see
Until then stay warm (under a blanket or a poncho)
and have a beautiful sunshiny and colorful day!
January is gone … Here is a quick update to share with you…
My crochet mood blanket 2014 – January
It’s been a good month. Some dark squares here and there mostly caused by the ugly situation in my country. But it was a not-so-bad month for me .
I love how this blanket is turning… I love how I can see clearly the whole month in a rectangle of crocheted small squares
I love my moody project
Home wise, a new couch has been bought for the sitting room. Our sitting room is a big one. Now we can lay down all of us five, feets up and curly under warm crocheted blankets
Yes, this couch is huge… really HUGE… It is a BIG Ushaped couch …
No, you can not see how huge it is… On the next pic you’ll see it clearly
But believe me my house is not always as tidy as on this pic… This is a very rare pic I’ll have to look at from time to time
And finally this is my poncho coming to an end It is 99% done and I am now crocheting the last row of its edging . A tadaaa post is coming very soon
I love my poncho and I keep trying it on and dansing in front of the mirror like a stupid teenager Love can make you stupid I know

Good morning sweeties!
Remember the secret project I told you about in my previous post…
It is this very cute heart shaped cushion
Even though I don’t like the whole valentine thingy idea I love everything heart shaped and my home is filled with hearts
So, I thought about adding this sweet cushion to my place
I crocheted it with a chunky yarn and a 5mm hook and unraveled it twice before I could get the shape I was hoping for…
I love it and keep changing its place around the house
I took some step by step pictures and I’m preparing right now a full pattern which will be for sale here in the blog for a symbolic price of 3USD.
So, my friend, if you’re interested in crocheting this heart for your valentine or to add a warm touch to your home, prepare some chunky yarn and the right hook for it and wait for me…
I won’t be long… I promise…
I’ll try to post the pattern asap
Love to all!
