In the meantime I wanted to share a couple of pictures I have been collecting over the last few weeks with you, along with what I am planning on doing in the next few weeks- I already did this a couple of months ago (just before Knitting and Crochet Blog Week) and looking back I realised I actually manage to do a couple of projects on my to-do list!
I absolutely love looking on the Phildar website, as they always have really cool patterns and very often, yarn sales. If I had more time and was more skilled, I would fancy having a go at this dress:
As mentioned before I learnt to crochet and I love it! I got a whole set of crochet hooks from eBay and I have been looking at projects to make on Ravelry and around the Internet. I really like these pics below (still from Phildar):
|Must. Have. This!!!|
Also on my to-do list:
- Gaelle from Knit Spirit has launched a mug cozy contest. I already knitted one for APAW, so this time I will make a crocheted one. There are plenty of inspiring designs on Ravelry- the hardest part will be picking the yarn!
- I have a very exciting project in the pipeline: a homemade retro bikini set. The top is already done and I should sort out the bottom this week so stay tuned. It is a definite success so far and EXTREMELY easy- you will never want to buy another bikini again!
- I am also in the middle of making a lacy style scarf with crocheted edges. "Lacy style" because I am not working with lace, and I'm not using complicated stitches, I am just using a beautiful, mohair looking yarn on slightly bigger needles than I should use. So far it looks great and I even figured out how to transfer the crochet bit onto my needles without messing everything up. I am planning on either adding small crocheted pink flowers or sew small pearl beads.
Until next time,
