Happy Wednesday readers!
I have taken back to my LOTR crochet along now that my ripple blanket is almost done (2 rows left, yay!). I have made a start on Gandalf’s pipe, and here is what it looks like so far.
I’ve also been baking today, I made a fresh batch of madeleines using my nana’s recipe and they were delicious!
It was actually quite funny because I was using fresh eggs that a friend brought over and the madeleines turned out so bright compared to usual! I even though something was wrong before I realised what was happening 😂
If you are interested with the recipe, I’ll post it next week, just let me know in the comments 😊
Hello wonderful readers!
I’m super happy today, because I’ve finished my first sock! I probably should have started with an easier pattern for my first pair, but I just fell in love with the details. The pattern is from the book “Sock Innovation” and, like the title says, it is the Glynis design.
It’s also getting quite cool here after the time torrential rains from last week, so I’m quite pleased with how warm this sock is! Now, to knit the second one!
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!
Yes, you read the title right! I’ve taken back my mandala madness! I am starting step 4 (I have done 2 row in red already) and I’m hoping to grow it more in the next few months.
I’m using scraps for this, so the colours are a bit random but I really like it so far. I have lots of blues and greys left over so it will likely grow in those colours in the next few rounds 🙂 I’m really looking forward to blocking this at the end, as I think it will really bring all the details out.
See you all on Friday for the giveaway winner announcement!
Just a quick one today, I’ve finished the leg of one of my socks! Yay! I have a feeling that making the second one is going to take a while! I will also be putting socks on hold until Christmas as I keep on coming up with new present ideas (yes I know I’m actually a bit late for that but I’m only just getting inspired now!)
Anyway, here is the sock.
More about those presents on Friday 😉
Hello lovely readers!
I have made some progress on my snowflake blanket, but I need your advice now. I am not sure what to do for the sides of it. My two options are to do half hexagons to have straight edges or to leave it as is.
I’m leaning towards making half circles at the moment but any opinion would be welcome 🙂
I currently have 6 rows and I am planning to add just another one, so hopefully it should be finished soon (by the end of the month?). The finished blanket will be perfect size for a baby or as a lapghan.
That’s it for me today! Until next time 🙂
Happy Wednesday readers!
I’ve managed to make some progress on the snowflower diaries joyful world calendar.
Here is where I was at last time
I’ve done most of it, I just need to finish this leaf I’m working on (right side) and add the two adorable geese. Then, I’ll be up to March!
Have a good one!
Today has been all about getting organised. There are some days like that when I feel like everything need to get tidy or I can’t get anything done. First up was continuing my crochet hook case.
Only got 4 compartment so far but what I love about this pattern is that you can add as many as your like/need (in my case I’ll have to hook a lot more!)
Then I started on another basket to store my ever growing stash.
And last but not least (and not crochet related) , I started transferring and sorting all my Pokemon in my Omega Ruby version. This one will take a while!
Have a great end of the week 😉
