FO – Campfire cardigan

Happy Wednesday!

I have to say I have been super slow at knitting my Read Between the Lines shawlย so I haven’t got any pictures to share but I have finished my Campfire cardigan yesterday, just in time for tomorrow’s deadline to enter the #grannyCAL18 hosted by Rosina of Zeens and Roger. I’m totally in love with it and as usual when I finish something I’ve been wearing it around the house a lot (read I haven’t taken it off) since yesterday.ย ย You will notice they are quite a few differences with the original pattern, I decided not to make a hood and to keep the sleeves at 3/4 length.

I had lots of fun today doing a little photoshoot in my kitchen. I find photos are always a bit challenging to find the right pose (I ended up taking waaaay more pictures that those 2) but well worth it ๐Ÿ™‚

In other news, I’ve been participating in March Meet the Maker over on Instagram, you can have a look at the pictures I posted on the right panel of my blog even if you’re not on IG, I’ve been talking a bit more about my design process and what I normally do of my days if you’re interested ๐Ÿ™‚

Easter eggs and frogs

Happy Monday lovelies!

This weekend of four days has been great, but I started more projects and didn’t finish much! Oh well! It felt good to put some fresh ideas on the hook, and I’m sure I’ll get there eventually.

I did get to finish a small object, and it wasย actually very relevant to Easter!

It could be either a pokemon or a yoshi egg, and it’s now my new needle/pin cushion.

One of my big projects this weekend was to continue cleaning up in sight of our imminent move (we should be getting the keys this week and hopefully moving on Saturday). I found an old project in one of my hip containers, a wanna be granny square blanket. There were so many issues with this project, first I don’t know what I was thinking with those colours, they just do go together at all! Then, I was pretty silly and decided that each square would be a different design, which just did not work as they weren’t even the same size and ended up making the joining a nightmare. As a reminder, here are some pictures.

So, I decided to frog it all!

The only thing is that I don’t know what to make out of all this scrap yarn! Do you guys have any idea?

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Granny squares blanket update

Happy Monday lovely people!

I have been really slack lately on my granny blanket but I’m trying to get it finished by the end of the month so I started joining the squares. 

Because of all the different sizes, I’ve had to shuffle the squares around to find the best position.     

 
This is what I’ve got so far ๐Ÿ™‚ and those are the other squares I have finished. 

 
Hope you all had a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

“The werewolf only responds to the call of its own kind”

Hey peeps!

I’ve been working on a new cross stitch project, a werewolf howling to the moon. This is it so far, I’m still debating of whether or not adding the quote from the title to it.  
For the finish I think I’ll just put it in a smaller hook and hang it on the wall ๐Ÿ™‚

I added to my painting with a shiny umbreon but, even though he is cute, I think the painting looks empty, so the rest of the eevylutions will probably be joining him!

 
  
I’ve been extra lazy with my granny squares so I’ll have to catch up if I want to finish my blanket before the end of the month. 

This is my latest square

Last WIP Wednesday of the month

Hello lovely people!

There must be a nasty bug going around, or I’m just really tired, but I got a bad cold. I normally never get sick, I think this is the first time I’m properly sick in at least 3 years. Still needed to get to work today so boohoo ๐Ÿ˜ฆ maybe tomorrow I can stay home and rest. 

I’ve finished earth on my avatar afghan! Still planning on finishing it by the end of the month so I really need to get going!  

Still not sure what I’ll do for the border. Any suggestion? 

I’ve done more squares as well for my #CraftyCAL, this time I’ve played with a lacy style which gave me bigger squares. I really like them!  

I don’t really know where I’m going with this but I enjoy making all different squares in different colours ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Hope you guys are having a great week, free from coughing and sneezing!

I’ve been bad…

I promised myself that I wouldn’t start a new project until finished some of my WIP but today I gave in! 

I’ve joined a CAL group on CraftyAmino. The goal is to post on Wednesday granny squares to ultimately make an afghan ๐Ÿ™‚ 

This is what I’ve got so far   

I’ve decided that all my squares will be different and I will adjust sizes at the end when I sew everything together ๐Ÿ™‚ if you want to join, we are aiming to finish by the end of March and the hashtag is #craftycal

We are going to the Gold Coast this weekend for Valentine’s Day so I also hooked a few hearts to spread the love, love bomb style! 

Do you guys have some fun crafts planned for V-day?

Mystery Afghan CAL – Week 2

And it is Friday again! This week went rocket fast, and I’m glad because I can finally see my man after a whole 5 days away! I am also excited to show you the progresses I’ve made on my mystery afghan this week.

The second step was to add a kind of cross over last week’s granny square, using colour B (you can see which colours I’ve chosen here). To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the result on a single square.

But when all of them were finished I quite liked them all together.

What do you guys think of the week 2 results? I still wonder if the finished product will be big enough to use as a lap afghan. I guess I shall wait and see!

Meet Veronica!

Good evening dear crafters!

Yesterday I fell in love with this yarn. Veronica is soft and feels very confortable, I am planning to make a giant granny square out of it to bring out on barbecues and other picnics this upcoming spring/summer. I just love the different shades it has and the feel of it!

What’s your favourite yarn at the moment?
