work in progress: crochet opaline blanket

welcome, so kind of you to visit my blog! 

last week i didn’t have to show you much, so i skipped the work in progress post. 

the opaline blanket is finished, regarding the crochet work and now it is time for sewing on small crochet motifs, beads and buttons and making embroidery stitches. on the picture you see small pieces of white paper that i’ve pinned onto the blanket so i can remember where i like to have the items. i think i need to work on my bed, because the blanket is too large for sitting at the table with it and the floor is hard to sit on for a longer time 😉 

photos below

if you like you can find more into about the stitch pattern that i use for the blanket here (pattern baby blanket) and here (info about the variation on the stitch pattern that i use for my current blanket).

the pattern for the square on the left you can find here and the squares on the right here.
used materials:
  • the opaline yarn is phildar impact 6 and i worked with hook size 6.5 mm.
  • the small squares are made with katia jaipur and hook size 1.75 mm.

over the past weeks, i have also made a few bags, but i’ll tell you about that another time.

hope the rest of the week is pleasant for you and i hope to see you soon!

hello, how are you?!

we are halfway the week already, time to show some crochet work. still working on my opaline blanket, it is 8 blocks wide and almost 7 block high, that means 1 row of blocks to go. next i will start with the border and thereafter it is finally time for the embellishments.

crochet opaline blanket in the works

so glad you come again for a visit, thank you!
 

the opaline blanket now has nearly five rows of faux blocks and i started with the eleventh ball of yarn.

 

i have buttons and beads gathered together, crocheted a few motifs and bought some yarn that all fit the theme seaglass. i do not know if i will use every single thing, but i like to decorate the blanket with the various items that you can see on the pictures.

 

the crochet flower motifs i made some years ago and i don’t have instructions for them. the small squares and the cups are made with katia jaipur and the patterns can be found here and here

 

the evenings are pretty cold, but fortunately the opaline blanket is now large enough to keep me warm while sitting on the couch and working on it.

later today i like to join ginny’s yarn along at small things

this is all for today, wish you an enjoyable rest of the week and hopefully see you soon!

work in progress: crochet charcoal cowl/scarf

nice to see you! 

my cowl/scarf has grown…

… and i doubt if i should make a colored detail.

i have green and blue yarn left from the soft ribbels blanket (which is finished!) and i also have yarn with the name peony. i do not like to wear pink, but because this yarn is variegated it might be a little different. what do you think, let me know?!

work in progress: soft ribbels crochet blanket

it has been a little busy lately but on every single quite moment i grabbed my yarn and hook. to show the progress of my soft ribbels crochet blanket i made this collage, do you like it?

on the photo below you can see the current size. i think the blanket just needs some more centimeters before i start with weaving in the yarn ends and making the edge.
