Saving the world, one crafty thing at a time

Projects

All projects are currently on hold whilst I work on my first  customer christmas order. Which if course means all my CALs are a little behind but even though I say they are on hold  going to put a day aside to catch up on everything.

I have also been spending a lot of my ‘free’ time at the gym, trying to work off some of this lingering post baby body. Now if only they allowed crochet into the place, I could do both hahaha

6′ scarf

So, I finished this a few days back using a pattern from one of the wonderful designers on the Crochet Playground Facebook page (you should check it out if you haven’t already). It’s a scarf. A wonderfully warm and long scarf, made using a 4 row pattern repeat in King Cole Chunky in white. I only added small tassels as I end up with them stuck in all manner of places haha. It works up fast and is what I’ve decided will match the Unforgettable cables earwarmer.

Grace

I’m super excited!! Just look at how pretty she is! I’m tempted to just stop here but I really want to make the full thing too…Oh the dilemma hahaha

Forgive the terrible photos. It turns out my back camera on my phone is a little broke and no longer focuses on anything except a really close close-up.

This photo is done using my front camera as that can focus but it’s super hard to get a straight picture haha.

Unforgettable

Started on the ‘Unforgettable Cables’ earwarmer. Using just a plain white for this as it’s like snow and is of course, for winter. The pattern called for worsted by I’be gone with some chunky and it is super soft and wonderful.

It’s 8″ long so far and I have to get it to 19″ before I can decrease for four and then join. So I’m working at two rows per inch, so I estimate about 22 more rows of pattern and 4 of decrease to go haha

Mystery CAL update

Here are this past weeks squares for this CAL. On the first square, I’m not sure if it should be (everyone else’s seems flat) but the flower has turned out super 3D. I love it haha

HOTH – started today….

…finished today. This is the Jazlyn baby hat pattern over on Snappy Tots. It has of course been altered as you all know I often do with patterns. The pattern is for a baby size and that is.just.adorable!! So I’m definitely going to do one in the original size of my baby.

This one I carried on the increasing rounds for a few then started to shape. After the layered colour rounds I added a few extra hdc rounds, then sc rounds and finished with a crab stitch round. I did also increase the length of the ‘tail’ at the beginning.

From what I can tell, I should have left out one or two increase rounds as I had to decrease on a few of the bottom white rounds so it actually fit again, hence the bulging part around the colour. But I’m happy, it works up quick and they are just so darn cute!

Another WIP

This one has been sat a while with just the first round of petals, so last night I decided it was time to start working on it again. You may recognize it as the ‘Blooming Flower Pillow’ but here’s the difference: I’m going to turn this into a blanket…or rug, instead of a pillow but may add a matching one at a later date.

image

I’m going expand it out to a decent size, then begin to square it off. I may use Sophie’s Universe squaring and then add an array of other borders and such and add smaller flowers like these around, we will see 😆

Mystery CAL

Here are the next two squares for this CAL. Again, it can be found on FB, along with all the other squares and designers under Mystery Group CAL. It’s fun doing these and I definitely think I will make more squares to make a blanket rather than a lapghan.

image

All my squares have come out at 5×5″ exactly, except this one…and I did the same thing: used the same yarn, same hook, but nope, bigger square. It’s fine I’m sure I can alter it when joining anyway 🙂

Grace is on her way!!

Just completed the middle panel of 49 starburst motifs. It is joined with a continuous join starting in the bottom right, zig-zagging up the row, between each, then straight down the sides of that strip…rinse and repeat round to the starting point and you have a continuous join 😄 I have marked it in that bottom right corner to make sure I don’t forget which side is the right side and which corner needs to go…

From here, the blanket is worked in the round but I’ll keep you posted as and when I complete each section 🙂

The pictures are not the best quality so you cannot full appreciate how pretty it really is.
