Happy Monday lovely people ❤️
I hope you all had a fab weekend, we came back from our trip down to Melbourne and today was back to work. I have been trying to catch up with all of your wonderful blogs but I have to say that today was really busy so hopefully I will get more time during the week to do this 😊
I don’t know if it’s because the weather has been so much colder or because I’ve been trying to be a bit more active on Instagram, but I’m just feeling so inspired right now, I just want to make all the things!
I’ve been working quite a lot on my virus shawl over my mini holidays and I have made it to the second skein of Holst Garn Coast. Yay!
This colour is called Marlin and I just love it! because the shawl is getting so much bigger, I think I’ll only be able to get two or three more pattern repeats with this colour, and then I still have my third blue to add.
I have also recently stumbled on the Blurre shawl from Addydae Designs. I LOVE it! It’s just so clever how the colours blend into each other to form this really cool effect. I had to make it! I’m using some Schoppel yarn I bought in Amsterdam last year and the leftovers from my socks for this. This is where I’m at so far and I think it looks like a sunset, so pretty! 😍
If you want to make your own Blurre, Deanne (the designer) is hosting a CAL on her Ravelry that will run until the 30th of June, so you still have time to join if you want to 🙂
That’s it for me for today, I wish you all a great week and I’ll be back on Wednesday with some sock WIP!
Happy Friday lovely readers!
What a week! And I can’t believe it’s already the end of April, which means that a third of the year has already gone by. I thought that this called for a roundup on my year so far. I have been bad and actually have more wips than when I started the year, with only one project that I finished from my previous wips 🙊 oh well!
So currently I have 4 big projects on my hooks, with one other (it’s a secret!) to be added this weekend (but hopefully a finish as well!)
- The LOTR blanket, which I haven’t touched in a week
- My Mandala Madness, which I haven’t touched either in some time (but I’m planning on doing some over the weekend)
- My virus shawl, I’m actually doing well on this, I’m mostly hooking it on the car when it’s not my day to drive (we alternate with my husband)
- The beautiful shells baby blanket, which I absolutely need to finish by Sunday (no pressure!)
Then on my hoops I have only two projects, but one is actually an ongoing thing over the year
And I also have socks to knit!
Thankfully I also had plenty of finished projects in the last 4 months, here are the photos to prove it!
I wish you all a beautiful weekend, here we have Monday off for Labour day and you know what that means: more crochet time for me! Yay!
Yes I admit, I totally gave in and started another project. To be fair though, I found the perfect yarn for it a few weeks ago and it was calling to me (seriously, I swear!) I’ve had my eyes on this project years ago, so I feel like it’s okay to have started it now 🙂 I know I’m a bit late to the party, but I’ve finally started a virus shawl.
I even enjoyed some outside crochet time yesterday, before we got hit by the rain and wind brought by cyclone Debbie.
I really love the pattern for this shawl, so easy to do, I don’t even have to think about it. I’m using the most gorgeous yarn too, Holst Garn Coast, and I love the slight changes in colour, it makes me think of denim 🙂 so pretty!
Anyway, I’m going to take it slow with this one, and try to update the mandala madness next week instead. We will see how I go!
P.S. I also just started a secret project today. I might show you some sneak peeks next week 😉 and yes, I know I should really finish stuff before I start new things but I can’t help it!
