Vintage puffy squares

Posted: Wednesday, May 27th, 2009 @ 5:28 pm in Crochet, vintage, WIP | 1 Comment »

I found those little squares and the remaining yarn (Patons Beehive Fingering) at my local thrifstore a couple weeks ago. I’m usually not a big fan of puffy flowers but really those looked so deliciously vintage that I grabbed them. Prune helped me find a way to arrange the colors in a nice way (she’s […]

I really thought I was going to try my hand on a wheel for the very first time this week, as my friend Claudia bought one (a Louet S10, same as the one I plan on buying as soon as we move to a larger place) and invited me to try it with her, .. […]

Granny love

When designing new patterns, I like to have a look at a million pictures of related-or-not projects, as it seems to help decide what I actually look for in that new design. As some of you may have figured, I’m on this total granny-square kick lately. So I’ve been hunting the internet, looking for all […]

Snowmen and crocheting

So cool, my Granny mitts were featured in Lime & Violet this week. :-D Craftzine chose instead to feature my old “Handmade gift pouch” Tutorial… Hey why not, it’s a freebie so might as well get twice more use.. ! :-P Late post this week, but we’ve been away all week visiting my in-laws. We […]

Second pair of Granny mitts

So I’ve finished crocheting all 4 Granny mitts, and am now starting the thumbs. I was a bit anxious about those thumbs but it seems the option I chose should look reaaaally nice ! I can’t wait to have them all done and show them to you… :-P I’ll try to write the pattern down […]

Granny mitts

I’m currently quite obsessed with granny squares. And as if I hadn’t started enough new projects lately, I started working on a new design this week: here’s my first prototype of granny mitts. Still needs a thumb and probably nicer-looking buttonloop. These are made with some Silk Garden I won in a bloggy contest ages […]

Hi, I’m back.. actually we came back a few days ago already but life if busy these days ! We had a great time with our kiwi friends and ended up staying all week in my grandmother’s chalet: the cold air helped a lot with laurent’s headaches, which was good ! The car nearly broke […]
