Let's hope this one doesn't take a year...

Of all things one can crochet,
I think I like throws the best.
But oh..., they can take so very long to finish.
(Well, at least it costs me ages, but I'm often amazed
by the speed of some crocheters... Respect!)

I learned to crochet just over one year ago.
And finished three throws in that period.
& a fourth one is still work in progress, since last spring,
and I really want to finish it.

Nevertheless, I started to work on a fifth one very recently,
and hopefully I will be able to finish this one within a couple of weeks.
Should be possible, since I make it with a 5 mm hook,
and the pattern has a lot of gaps. ;-)

So, here is a sneak peek.
Hope to show you the end result soon.

Almost weekend...
Enjoy!

  1. I just discovered your blog this week and am loving it!
    Not sure if to comment in Dutch or English. So let's have both. :)
    Greetings from stormachtig Ierland.

    1. Dank je! Dat is ontzettend fijn om te horen!
      Tja, wat betreft het Nederlands vs Engels: misschien moet ik maar gewoon in het Nederlands gaan bloggen, maar ik vind het een aardige manier om mijn roestige Engels een béétje bij te houden. ;-)
      Klinkt romantisch trouwens: een stormachtig Ierland, ik hoop dat het dat ook vooral is - en niet te gevaarlijk...
      Hartelijke groeten vanuit een ietwat kwakkelend Nederland

    1. Dank voor je reactie! Ja, zelfs met haaknaald 5 kan het soms lang duren.. Dat is waar!
      Wat betreft het patroontje van de hexagon: als je me even je emailadres mailt (of hier in de reacties zet), dan mail ik je het patroon wel even.

  9. I'd just like to say that your work is always beautiful! I'm the person who contacted you not long ago for the link to you pastel "Flowers in a Row" pattern because everyone on Pinterest was looking for it. I do appreciate you posting that link, now it is all over Pinterest!

    But I do have a question about the hexagon pattern on this page. Your joinings look so perfect. How did you do those?

    Gratefully,
    Katie
