crocheted hat for me and Gattaca OST - The Departure

Many days ago I did this crocheted hat and I did these photos...
I wanted to write the pattern but I have not done yet...
maybe some other day ....

I think I have worked with 5mm crochet hook
and yarn Stylecraft Special Chunky, exactly with colour Meadow 1065.
It was the first time I worked with Chunky and I liked for to make hats.
A sweet yarn and easy to work. I think it's perfect for hats for adults.


I have a new photo camera...
but nothing make me happy these days ...
Well, my dear and sweet daughter ... 
it makes me happy, yes ... very happy ...
and fills me with hugs and kisses when I need it most ...
she is incredibly sweet ...
Because I'm on a personal huge difficulty...
my life is broken ... my world is  not of wool ...
is not a world sweet ... I'm on black days of my life ...

I'm so sorry if I not comment on your blogs...
I'm so sorry... perhaps on spring or summer I'm a new person ...
or the same person but more happy that these days ...
perhaps ... perhaps ...


Well ...  The crocheted hat, yes.
I prefer to leave the hat so as one beret.
It's like the crocheted hat that I made for Carlota 
but in this case, for me, I have not done any crocheted flower ...
I think I have a head big... enough to no put more decorations ...

Yes ... My life is giving a turn huge
and I am immersed in a black cloudy ...
my head can not think with clarity and for days, weeks,
more than a month I do not make crochet ....
maybe one day I will be able to create something with crochet ...

I have not yet  joined granny squares for the blanket
that I started two winters ago ...
Now, for me, a granny squares blanket seems like a daunting task ...
I can not ... now I can not ...


And many days ago I said too that I want to make a Giveaway ...
yes ... and I still have not done the Giveaway ...
I wanted to celebrate that the blog has exceeded 300,000 visits ...
300 followers ...  Pinterest has over 2,000 followers ...
But I do not have strength for make a Giveaway these days ...
 I promise you that the day that I will make a Giveaway
will be a big, big Giveaway ... to give thanks ... to be here ...

Now I have to solve a few things ... reorganize my life ...
with my daughter ... perhaps a change of city ...
great many things ...
I need time ... space ... relax ...

And I need to thank my friends ... yes ...
life gives a thousand rounds ...
but they have always been with me ...
always ...
in the most happy and sad moments ...
my friends ...
they are a great treasure for me ...
thanks ...
thanks for be my friends ...





And you ... wait for me ...
I promise you that I will be back ...
I will return someday ...
One day I will make crochet with joy ...
and I will share my works with you ...
on the future ... I promise you ...
wait for me ... If you want ...

thanks ...

crocheted hat and The Sacrifice - Michael Nyman

 Life leads us in paths that sometimes we not chose, we not choose never ... But inevitably, the facts was happening one after the other ... Today is today ... and tomorrow will be tomorrow ... Every day I am more sure that we do not choose the path ... I do not know who chose the path for us ... or for me ... I do not know ... because I always I am wrong ... always ... But now something is different ...  she is ... 


And his smile ... his joy ... their energy ... all she is full of life ... she is the light, that all I have always been looking is at she .... Whatever happens she is here to brighten me day ... to brighten the lives  ... What more can I ask? I want to be happy next to my daughter and I want be in this life to see how she grows healthy, strong and happy... I want that she be happy...


She loves this crocheted hat.  I did it in the first rounds with one granny square. See if one day I write the pattern ... maybe I write it ... I made one crocheted hat for my in green, I will teach you very soon. Here I worked with Stylecradt DK wool and crochet hook 4mm. And I also did a simple crocheted flower. A flower for my favorite flower ...
_______________________________

If I knew play the piano in these days I sure that I will play songs like these ... Listen ...  hereherehere ... and many, many more... But I'm so sorry... I do not know play the piano...  I do not know play the violin... I do not know play the accordion... I'm so sorry...



I have never said here that I love to read poetry? 
Yes... I love...

WAKE THE SERPENT NOT

Wake the serpent not – lest he
Should not know the way to go, –
Let him crawl which yet lies sleeping
Through the deep grass of the meadow!
Not a bee shall hear him creeping,
Not a may-fly shall awaken
From its cradling blue-bell shaken,
Not the starlight as he's slidin
Through the grass with silent gliding.


(1819) Percy B. Shelley

crochet star for Christmas decorations

Have you seen the blog header that I make on Christmas time?
 These days I have done crochet stars, yes, for Christmas decoration.
These three crochet stars are the first  I did ...


And where I live there is so much fog that photos came out horrible
regarding the issue of light ... is for it that I used some resources
to make them more colorful and alive. Do you like the result?


I already thought that this year I would not do Christmas decorations 
with crochet but I have made some crochet stars.
And it has been fun, yeeeeeees!


I have worked with 3mm crochet hook and
Natura Just Cotton, of DMC ( here )
I looooooooove the colour palette Natura DMC,
is perfect for crafts!


I think the stars are perfect for crochet garlands, 
to decorate the Christmas tree, decorate the home and doors,
very good for gift wrap decoration or Christmas tags... 
There are thousands of possibilities, right?


So if you want to see where I saw the tutorial for these stars, click here

I have made twelve stars crochet, now I will to shape with pins ...
I will soon to show you the final result!

You still not have made ​​Christmas decorations? 
you should try it, it's easy and great satisfaction for you and your home!

Thanks for visiting my world of wool!

See you soon!

Bye! Bye!

Carlota's crocheted cowl

It makes it cold!! And there is so much fog where I live ... 
I do not like the fog ... I hate the fog!!!
Last week we go two days at Barcelona and  it sunny! 
it's great to see the sun one day when for many days not you see it ... 


I do not want my daughter to have cold, never. Is for it that I made 
this crochet cowl. Easy, eaaaaaaaaasy, yeeeeeeees .........
 All made ​​with double crochet ( dc ), except for the last round 
of yellow color, made ​​with single crochet ( sc ).


 I have worked with 4mm crochet hook and Woolly Natural Knitting, of DMC
It is very, very, very soft! Perfect for make a cowl or any other project 
for babies! And for adults too! You remember the crochet cowl
that I make with the same colors? you can see it here


Then I did two stars and sew,  like a applique, 
you see the stitches around the stars? 
I think that's more fun for a little girl, right?
 ( tutorial how to make stars  here )


And my princess is happy with the scarf that have made ​​her mother! 
Sure she is! And I'm happy see how my little girl grow ... happy ...  
I hope it be like this ... happy all her life ...

more crochet owls and Moby - Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?

Lately I see many owls ... and this makes me happy
because maybe the species is recovering a bit ... I wish!


The crochet owl is in good company ... It is not only one ... 
they are two crochet owls! yeeeeeeeeees!!!
when she saw this owl ( here ) 
told me that her daughter she liked too the owls ...


The pattern is the same as  the first owl  that came home:
three circles and three triangles. They have some hair in the ears ... 
These are so fun!

For to make these crochet owls I've worked 
with Drops Paris and 3mm crochet hook.
I think they are the same species ... two owls of my world of wool!


They are perfect for making an applique on a t-shirt, a dress, a handbag ...
I do not know what their final destination, but if I know one thing:
these two owls very soon will  travel to home of Ona and Ada!

I hope you liked these owls, Anna! 
leave a window open so they can enter to your home!

The Moby songs so many years ago that accompany my life ...

but I think everyone knows that, right?
yes, is a genius ...



Thanks for your sweet comments ...
I promise you that I read all and they all make me very happy ...
thank you ...

another crocheted cowl and Najwa - Como un animal

Excuse me ... these days I have my head on other things 
and not update the blog ... And I do not make comments on other blogs ...
And ... in aim ... Well, I make crochet and I do something these days.
And today I will teach you another crocheted cowl.
Yes, these days are very cold and we have to dress warmly.



This crocheted cowl is similar that one I did for Cristina, you remember? 
( you can see here )
I worked again with Stylecraft DK wool and crochet hook 4mm.


I am impatiently waiting  another purchase that I've made this week,
of the same wool ... I love the colour palette, is so extensive ...
I loooooooooooooooooove it ...


You can see how I've worked with double crochet and also with pom-pom stitch.
I also made ​​waves at the edges. I love the combination of yellow with gray.
The blend the warm colors with gray color is really good, right?


Do you like this crocheted cowl? Well ... I am very sorry but it have owner !
M Carmen asked me if I could do one like the Cristina
but she like it a bit narrower and therefore did not fall so on the shoulders.


This cowl  is very hot and it it will be very useful for these days. 
And their colors are to brighten the days cold and dark of winter....


And once again I ask me: some day I'll make a cowl like this for me??
maybe ... maybe ... on next winter ...??????? maybe ... maybe ...

I hope you liked it, M Carmen!

cowl with crochet and Winter Song - Sara Bareilles/Ingrid Michaelson

I think that crocheted cowls are more practical for children than scarves.
They can put themselves well and they take warm neck.
How I made a hat for my nephew Olau
I wanted to do something for my nephew Alguer, her brother.
So I have done a cowl with crochet
to be well sheltered from cold these days.


I have worked with Stylecraft DK  and crochet hook 4mm.
I love the softness and colors of this brand!
and it is so nice to work with her ...!


I think that these colors do much to a child.
The orange colour combined with the gray is very happy and full of energy,
as is my nephew! full of energy! yeeeeeeeeees!


Make a crocheted cowl like this is very, very simple! I use only double crochet 
( dc with US terminology or  tr treble crochet with english terminology )
and you can do it as big as you want, it's easy and fun! 


While you watch TV in two, three nights, you have a beautiful
crocheted cowl to keep outside the cold the little ones or those over home!


It can also be a nice gift for Christmas, right?
_____________________



I wish you a good weekend
I hope you take shelter the cold, that you enjoy with your family
and you make things with crochet, enjoy your stuff!

Kisses to you all ...

monstrous...

The cold has arrived and the children should have the hot head, right? 
It's time to hats, to scarves, cowls, ... 


With these wool Stylecraft DK and crochet hook 3mm
I have done something monstrous ...


Monstrous... Well... yes ... monstrous!!!
here is the hat for my nephew  Olau!


This week Olau three months old.
I already made ​​another hat for my nephew but ...
it did not give me time take photos, 
because one day it got cold and he needed already urgently!


The other hat is with two colors. 
But I wanted to make a hat like the ones I see on Pinterest, 
with an animal or a monster. And I invented this monster for my nephew.
Here the horns of the monster ...


One day, if  I can, I make some photos so you can see 
how it looks  in the head on my nephew ...


I hope my nephew will not be afraid of this monster!

And with this sweet monster I want to welcome
the new followers of the blog. Today are 286 blog followers...
and more than 1,200  followers to  Pinterest

This is really really monstrous! amazing ...

thanks ... thanks ... thanks you all for being here..

Good night ....
