Giant Wall Doily

This was finished quite some time ago but I never got round to mounting it when i had completed it. Now that it has been mounted and hanging on my wall for some time, it is about time that I revealed the final product….

giant-wall-doily

The pattern is the Doily MCAL by BG Designs and my finished one ended up being backed onto a 32″ x 40″ canvas, using black DK yarn and a whole bottle of ModPod to stitck it down.

Now that I finally finished it, I can say that it is a great pattern, well written and easy to follow. Works up quick and it would definitely look great with multiple together on canvas, maybe even different colours and sizes…similar to my Mother’s Day Gift Doilies.

Scraps of Yarn

I have took up another couple of projects to bust through my stash. It have decided to start the Scraps of Yarn Challenges created by the lovely being over at Creative Crochet. I have started with the reversible cushion and have completed part 1 of the four parts to this particular pattern.

As its a stash buster, its multicoloured however I have pretty much match the colours with the shown pictures in the pattern except for the brighter purple around the edge of the largest square. Its all dk using a 4mm hook.

Part 5 Doily MCAL

I have now caught up and have completed part 5 of the Doily MCAL that is being hosted on Facebook by CALs by BG Designs.

image

It’s now a giant 28.5″ across using black dk and a 4mm hook, instead of the 1.25mm hook and crochet thread. There are still some rounds to come so it will get even bigger and then there is the canvas backing to add…..exciting times 🙂

Part 5 Wonder CAL

Just for round to doing part 5 of the Wonder CAL Blanket 2016. Just using the two colours chosen originally. 5mm hook and dk yarn, it now sits at 10.5″ in ‘height’.

This little gem is going to be super warm, soft and wintery when its done and just in time for Christmas.

Wonder CAL Part 4

Just finished part 4 of the Wonder CAL which is available via the Facebook page (named as such). Again I have only used the cream and red yarn in thus pattern and will continue to do so.

image

It now measures 9″ from top to bottom and is beautifully textured. Its working up nicely and is certainly keeping my legs warm whilst I make it 🙂

Shoulder Bag

I started this bag for myself as I really liked the look of it but as I made it, I wasn’t feeling it that great. Its a wonderful pattern but I felt it wasn’t something I’d actually use. So I decided to finish it anyway and give it to my mum for her birthday as she said she wanted it whilst I was making it. Bonus. Haha

I used DK yarn so my bag came out smaller but I was using it as a stash buster too so that’s ok. It still came out at a decent size. The pattern is the ‘Moiré Shoulder Bag’ created by Charmed by Ewe.

Dutch CAL 2015 Week 13

I have now completes week 13 of this CAL. It now sits at a nice 40″ across, with another 22 weeks left of pattern. That means many more rounds as it is not one round per week.

image

I swear it lays flat and straight, its just a little more difficult to smooth out every time I finish a part haha.

There is a pale brown/beige sc round I’m this edge section that is worked into the front loop created between two of the other rounds, giving a more textures effect.

Not the best photo and doesn’t show to well bit it’s there and that also sits properly if I have the patience to smooth it out.

Its so warm and chunky and lovely…I can’t wait to do some more.

Wonder Blanket CAL part 2

So yesterday part 2 of this CAL (which is available on Facebook) was posted and I finished it last night after a lot of debating with myself about what colour tobuse for the last row. Should it be red? Or should I still with the cream?……

image

I went with red but I’m still in two minds as to change it. But if I stick with the red, I’m pretty sure the next part is going to stay all cream and maybe even part 4 will too, as I don’t want too much going on throughout the blanket.

As you may know, this CAL lasts until November (if I can keep going for that long haha) and so it will be a Christmas theme blanket, or at least that’s what I’m going for with the colour choice, when it first began. Hopefully I don’t make the great pattern look pants by my colour placement but I will not know until then so its all a surprise for everyone.

Week 8 Dutch CAL

Wooo! Here’s week 8 (or what would have been week 8) of the Dutch CAL. This weeks round have all been done in cream, with all simple stitches used….I say that hahaha as I make a stitch count mistake in the last round of week 7. I ended up with 20, yes 20, less stitches than I should have all because I missed every ‘third’ stitch which was slightly hidden on the twists. No matter, I was able to rectify this by working two stitches into every third stitch, except for the middle stitch in each side, so that section worked had one stitch in the five stitches there as did each before and after corner section…..oh well, it sounds complicated but really it wasn’t, just a little extra counting.
