African flower

Have fallen in love with crochet! and made this pinterest site where I can collect all the pretty things I see online! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!

Right now I´m starting a crocheted baby throw.

Its as easy as 1, 2, 3 :) here is a how to crochet this flower. This blogger is also amazing, and fun to read. I started by changing the flower from a six leaf flower to a eight leaf flower like I saw on pinterest and then I did the square around it so I can make an even throw/blanket. I don´t like when the doilies make an uneven edge.

The yarn I´m using I bought from pickles its extra fine merino and its gorgeous, so soft and snugly. The only thing is that the extra white one I chose is so treated to make it white that it´s a little bit dryer than the others. I hope that it will be better after I wash it with balsam :)

I´ve been crocheting alot lately.
No knitting, the skirt waits and waits for me. But in stead I´m crocheting handwarmers with single crochet and then diagonal shell stitch. The thing is though, that the stitch is called that in my book crochet inspiration by sasha kagan. But when I googled the stitch a totally different stitch appears. the crazy stitch
These are the handwarmers
But then... the thing is I didn´t really do it by the pattern :) I changed it :D

So what I did is extra 3 chain stitches in the end of every row and that made it look more summery and not as closed. more open..

So happy! now I just have to finish it.

The other thing I´m going to do is undecided, its cotton and lots of pearls different colors and sizes.

I have been in a litle lull with my knitting. Knitting the skirt has become boring and I´ve looked at it a lot of times for the past week. Now I´ve been looking at a lot og crochet. Crochetet flowers, and crochetet summer wear. This is a a neckles I did a few weeks ago. very easy crockodile crochet

I really havent knitted that much juring tha summers. I just don’t, the heat and the sun lead to me thinking knitting is to warm. So now I´ve been looking towards crochet. Crocheted summer wear and jewlery. Something that isn´t to hot and is not to heavy! And that’s what I´ve been looking at online for the past week or so.
I found this beautyfull dress on ravelry. The lotus smock
There I also found this midnight lace dress which looks gorgeous too. Now I just have to get the yarn for it :P because all the yarn I have is for warm winterknits.

Then there is this jewlery thing. I´ve bought silver thread, and glitter thread. Lots of different wool threads and I have a litle bit of cotton left from other projects. The thing is, I really feel like crocheting jewlery from silver wire and so I bought that too and some pearls. Now I just have to find some time to do all this.
