New stitches and yarn order

Happy Monday readers!

First, I’d like to thank everyone for your lovely comments and suggestions on buying yarn online. I’ve followed the advice that a few of you gave me and placed an order with Wool Warehouse, and I got Scheepjes Catona in a few different colours (I will post a picture when my squishy parcel arrives).

Like I said last week, I’ve got this shawl idea stuck in my head for a little while now and I have finally started on making some swatches for the different stitches I want to use.

The top picture is the star stitch, it took me a little while to figure it out but I ended up getting it after watching this tutorial from the Crochet Crowd.ย On the bottom right is some kind of net stitch worked up in triangles (I’m still a bit unsure about this one) and on the bottom left is a shell stitch. I had to try this one a few times as I wanted to include a decrease in the pattern with the same slope as decreasing the net or the star stitches. I have also re-done a starfish in filet crochet and I really like this version so it will be the one I keep. And last but not least I have made this little fishy using tapestry crochet.

I’m really liking how all the elements are turning out, now I just hope that when my yarn arrives and I start crocheting, everything comes together well, but only time will tell ๐Ÿ˜Š

I wish you all a great week!

Beautiful shells baby blanket

Happy Friday!

As I mentioned last week, I did start a few new projects over the Easter weekend. I showed you the springtime versatile shawl on Wednesday. Now, I want to show you a baby blanket I’ve started for a baby shower next week. I’ve copied Mrs Craft and used the beautiful shells pattern for this baby blanket. The baby is a little girl (which is super exciting as the future mum already has two boys!) and I hope she will like the girly colours I’ve chosen.

The blanket is a bit bigger than that right now but it’s somewhere in a cardboard. We are finishing to move all our stuff in the new house tomorrow, so I’ll dig it up then and continue working on it. Hopefully it’ll be finished by Sunday next week ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great weekend!
