Big Head Baby Dolls

These are a thing. You may have seen these too. Crocheted dolls. This is my first. I have made more since this one and my children have claimed it as their own which now loves in the push chair.

He is a mamap….as my youngest likes to call them. Or in our language, a rabbit. Complete with fluffy white tail.

 

Made using doubled up DK strands and a 5mm 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.

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 🙂

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.

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.

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!

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.

Grace update

I finally finished all my motifs for the middle of the Grace Blanket that I am doing (courtesy of My Craft Life on FB) in between all the other gazillion things I’ve been doing and have started to continuously join them. I’m super loving the way it’s all looking and pround of myself too. I think I’m doing a great job on it.

Hope everyone else is having a good time on their current WIPs and nothing too seriously daunting 🙂

Dutch CAL

I have seen for a while now, a beautiful CAL that I wanted to take part in…one problem was that the instructions were in Dutch and I’m not a great Dutch speaking person haha. I could make out some words like lossen and was beginning to be able to read Dutch patterns and try to work from the pictures (which is also not one of my biggest strengths). The good news is, that the entire pattern is being translated! Whoop, we love you guys! Haha. So far the first 10 parts have been translated with the rest still in process. But I have worked up to round 11 on the first part so far.

I’ve gone for a neutral look with this one (although there is a giant flower in the middle). I changed the first 8 rounds to my own pattern, that I used from inspiration of another and then started with round 9 of the pattern.

I am now using worsted weight yarn (I feel like a big girl now, as I’ve only ever used DK). The beige round is two strands of dk as I didn’t have the right weight when I first started but that is fine and its roughly working up to a worsted size. It is thick though so this is definitely a winter blanket.

Still alive and kicking

It’s been one of those weeks this week. Everything as decided to happen. Two deadlines for two university essays, all my children being riotous, with one deciding that sleep no longer exists on this planet of existence and therefore no-one else needs so. She will not go down for naps, she will not go to bed and when she does eventually stop screaming over an hour after she’s been put down to sleep, she wakes from anywhere around 11 to scream the place down until 5 when we come downstairs in the morning. No-one is sleeping in this household! Hopefully it’s only temporary and it will stop quite sharpish.

It should make me happier as it means more crochet time technically but any time that’s free is going into finishing my essays but on a high point, I do have a week of no work before the next module so super lots of crafting to take place there haha.

Hoping everyone else us doing well and maybe having a bit more fun than me! 😆
