Last week I promised a sneak peek of my latest
- unplanned *big sigh* - project. Well, here is a peek of the work in progress. Or rather, mainly of all the ends I still have to sew in...
I have been crocheting like a maniac for the last 1,5 week. Really. There's no nicer way to put it.
It's definitely my favourite crochet project so far. When I'm back with the pictures of the finished throw, I'll post a link to the blog where I found this wonderful pattern. (Which I just had to make, without delay, when I saw it.)
There's somebody else in the house who shares my enthusiasm for this project. When I left it unattended for just a few secs, she claimed it as hers right away. :-)
Hopefully you've enjoyed your weekend.
Did you have time for reading or crocheting at all?
I did... I actually started another crochet project
(unplanned and it's rather big too...)
of which I'll show you a sneak peek in a few days time.
Right now, when I look outside, it's autumn,
but still I'm happy because there are flowers everywhere... Finally.
(The picture above was taken on a much sunnier day than today.)
Inside - it is definitely spring!
These pictures are from a smaller project,
with tunesian crochet.
Tunesian crochet work tends to curl - a lot.
Hence the pins in the picture below.
I like the texture though, it's a bit squishy.
And the technique is easy to learn when you're used to crocheting.
Have you ever made something with tunesian crochet?
Something I really like about blogging is to be inspired by others,
and to discover that sometimes - to my delight and surprise -
others are inspired by this tiny blog... (Yay!)
Like recently, there were suddenly quite a few visitors
from South Korea to my blog (btw, a country I'd love to visit once).
On which I discovered a lovely South Korean crochet blog
with a 'remake' of my popcorn potholder (remember? this one!)
in similar colours and styling.
This was confusing in a funny way:
At first glance it looked like my own photo,
but there was something slightly different... Go check it out here!
One of the pictures of Mi Mitrika was that of a placemat or doily in bright colours, with lots of red (a colour I normally hardly ever use)
But I was smitten...
So I shamelessly made my own and used a lot of red too.
Although admittedly her colour combi is better - with mustard/ochre
which I didn't have in my stash.
Anyway - it's nice to go bright for a change!
