nuts about crochet


hello sweet visitor!

it is time to show you some of my crochet projects in the works and i am aware that at the end of this post you might think: ‘she is nuts, crochet nuts’:)


these are five bags, some of which are almost ready.

5 crochet bags in the make

in the short term, i have no time to provide the storage bag with the fishes with a liner. therefore i soon will work out and publish the tutorial and a picture of the final result you will see at the end of the year. i guess you don’t mind? those of you who want to crochet the bag , can start the project.


this shall be a bedspread for my mother, i’m not even halfway.

 crochet project by elisabeth andrée

a few months ago i made this blanket with color blocks for her, she liked the colors but not the size. she was not sure what to do with it because it was too small for her bed. i explained to her she could drape it over the bed end or couch or if it was cold to wrap around her. with my current project i will make sure the size is appropriate for her bed.


this blanket i partly ripped out because, in retrospect, i found it not very beautiful. i doubt a little how i’m going to make a blanket of it again, so this story is also to be continued.

crochet blocks

and therefore i now have an old crochet blanket over the bed end. it was actually nominated to go to the thriftstore or animal shelter but after freshening up in the washing machine it is on the bed end again.


you can find the pattern for the lacy with dots squares here


at the end of this post some pictures of beautiful pink lilies, although they smell very strong….

be sure to take a look at tami’s and ginny’s websites for some beautiful creativity!

have a nice day!

  1. Je blijft me elke keer weer verbazen met je haakproduktie. Jaloersmakend gewoon. 🙂
    En dat je die pracht deken weg hebt willen doen! Het is echt een eyecatcher.
    Prachtige lelies, wat een bijzondere kleur, zo felroze. Hier verkopen ze alleen de witte variant.

  2. Crocheted bags are great — so sturdy!

  3. The green blanket is beautiful!

  4. Love your green blanket. So fresh. Looks right out a magazine!

  5. Love the blanket–Green and Dots–at the foot of your bed. Is there a pattern for this ? ?Thanks for sharing.

    • Hello Ingrid,

      Thanks for visiting.

      This green and dots blanket I made in 2009 and I have no pattern.
      For the squares, you can use the tutorial for a Lacy Granny Square, which can be found via this link: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/184858759677777952/

      The squares are slightly different but they have the lacy look like those of the green blanket. You can change row 1, row 1 of my squares consist of 24 double crochets.

      Hope this helps!

      • Thank you elisabeth for the link–found some lovelies there–but still like your green one better. Best Wishes–Ingrid
