CAL

Week 7 Dutch CAL

I just loved doing the ‘twister’ round on week 7 of this pattern. Its just so twisty and has such texture. As its obvious, I’ve now completed the next stage of the great CAL. The little beauty is growing and there are so many different stitches and techniques going on that its easy to stay (for me at least) more focused and not get bored Haha

Here is the twister round, dome by working in the right side them turning and working back along those stitches and then turned back to the right side to continue onto the next set of stitches.

Here is the final round. These three rounds are beige/pale brown, then dark brown and then beige/pale brown.

Moogly CAL update

Again, I forgot to update… bad me Haha. If you haven’t already, then check the page for more yarny goodness on this CAL (thats technically finished but I’m always late to the party anyways). I have so much fun doing all the CALs and different patterns available and I still and will always blame you lovely people with your wonderful patterns, making and writing them, curse you all…hahahaha. You’re all enablers…..

Anyways back to the point, here is the most recent to this CAL

This one is quite ‘lacy’ but hopefully it will stay in its shape and behave itself 🙂

Dutch CAL

So the next rounds of the CAL are do e and I have already started the next set. I’m in love with this pattern. Its just so pretty, don’t you just agree? Haha

These last few rounds were tricky as they are what I’d call, flimsy, until you start getting further out and stabilising them but I got there.

I’m sure you’re surprised but….

Yes, I have indeed started yet another project….it’s not my fault, its all you designers out there that fuel my addiction hahaha.

The CAL is by Mistie Bush over at American Crochet and is spread throughout the year starting today (7th Jan) and finishing 3rd November. The pattern called for worsted weight and a 5.5mm hook. I’ve opted for (only because I couldn’t wait to start and have used yarn in my stash) a brand here in the UK – The Knitting Basket DK although it works up slightly thicker than other DK, in red and cream (so similar in colour to what is suggested) and a 5mm hook. This gives my measurements as 46″ long and 2.5″ wide instead of the 52″ by 3″. However the yarn used is fairly stretchy so could probably add some length if i desire and it needs blocking as I did my chain slightly too tight so it doesn’t sit flat, but I’m sure this will sort.

This is the first part of the CAL – the first 6 rows.

I’m excited to see what comes next as each new part is released on a Thursday, twice monthly, so a little wait but I’m sure I’ll find something to do in the meantime.

Sophie – Part 5

I have just completed part 5 of Sophie’s Universe by Dedri (isn’t she a wonderful lady) and what a beautiful pattern it is so far. I know many have already completed a Sophie and others have done multiple ones and they are all fantastic. So here is my updated one.

I’m using James C Brett Oyster double knit yarn in white, oyster, pewter and black and a 5.5mm hook. She now stands at a size of 29.5×29.5″ (or about 75x75cm).

Its now onto part 6 😀

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.

image

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