crochet work in progress

hope all is well with you?!

last week i had no opportunity to write a blog post. we had a final farewell in the family and although not totally unexpected, for us it was too soon. i’m still a little confused, but fortunately for me there are yarn, hooks and crochet.

 

maybe you like to take a look at my wips?

in the house of my mother, i found this simple glass vase, with a minor damage at the top edge, it measures 21 cm high with a diameter of 18 cm. i have crochet a sleek cover of light green catania yarn and at the top a small teal and coral edge.

 

the spider stitch blanket has only become a little larger. the yarn is stylecraft special dk and the color’s name is saffron, which is a really fresh and happy shade of orange.

the slightly variegated green colored bag you see on the picture below is for my sister in law. the yarn is cotone of lana grossa and it feels quite firm which makes it suitable to use it for projects like this. the bag is almost ready, only the top i have to finish and i’m thinking to make a surprising color effect.

last but not least, a secret project and it has to remain secret for a while, but i will post more photos as soon as possible. it is pink and lilac and the lilac has a gray undertone. the yarn is the lovely acrylic peques of katia. it feels very soft!lilac and pink secret crochet project in the works

 

that is all for today but this afternoon i will join ginny’s yarn along at small things

wish you a wonderful day and i hope to see you soon again!

crochet nutty pillow done!

it’s friday and i hope you will enjoy the weekend! 

here are some pictures of the bright colored crochet nutty pillow that i started september last year, more info here. this week i finally completed the project. it is made entirely of leftover yarn.

inside is a pillow made from an old duvet cover filled with leftover yarn, yarn ends and leftover crochet projects. i measured to find the middle on both sides and pulled needle and yarn through.

the crochet cushion cover i washed and after it was dried, i have put the sewed cushion in it and i could easily pull the yarn on both sides through the center and attach the buttons, then i sewed the edge.

the nutty pillow is a large floor cushion of almost 90 cm in diameter, it feels like a comfortable mattrass and i designed it for two cats to relax and sleep on it. i hope they like the neon details!

Have a lovely weekend and until next time!

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!

soft ribbels blanket finished!

welcome!
today the light is good and bright enough to make some photos, it is cold with faint sunlight.
the soft ribbels crochet blanket is finished and below you can see the pictures of the result! 

after many attempts i decided not to make an edge. i hesitated and hesitated and have the blanket washed and after it was dry, again made several attempts but eventually i decided: no edge. so this is an edgeless blanket 🙂 

for two nights i already slept under it and it turns out to be a warm blanket, because besides the blanket i only have a summer duvet and i didn’t have it cold at all. it is stretchable and it feels comfortable and warm.

i am happy with it, hope you like to take a look at the photos! 
if you like to crochet soft ribbels too, here is the link to the how to
thanks for visiting, see you next time!
