We protect us from the fog and cold!

What is the best way to protect yourself against the cold?
Here with fog we protect with hats and cowls.
It makes me happy to see that Carlota is very happy
with hats and crocheted cowls that I do for her ...

This crocheted hat and cowl have been made
with two skeins of way simultaneously
and with Stylecraft Special DK yarn.
Again here I've worked with 6mm crochet hook.
You can see the pattern of crochet hat here

I love the fall and winter when the sun is  sparkling
but I not like the fog ...
Even so the fog is beautiful when I'm with her ...
she make me to see the world with others eyes ...!

I wish you have a good day
and happy crocheting!

See you soon!

more crocheted hats and more scarves

Cold, fog, have arrived at our city and landscapes.
and today I will show the new crochet hats.
These crochet hats are a gift for my two nephews.
One is slightly larger than the other.
Both are made with blue wool tones.

For to make these hats I have worked with 6mm
crochet hook and yarn Stylecraft Special DK,
although I worked with two skeins of yarn simultaneously,
of the way it becomes a thicker wool.

And Carlota she has enjoyed with wrapping gifts.
she always wants to participate in mom's stuff ...
and I'm so happy to see that she is so happy
with these little things ... You can see tutorials
and similar hats here and here

And my incessant activity with hats and scarves
continues with these new crochet cowls.
I have worked in all three with the crochet hook
that accompanies me these days ...

my lovely 6mm crochet! I loooooove it!
We have become inseparable!

Cowl blue:
yarn Deramores Studio anti-pilling chunky,
I have worked with mesh stitch.

Cowl grey:
yarn Stylecraft Weekender super chunky,
I have worked with the same way you can see here
And with left over yarn
I made this new scarf
 and I added two wooden buttons ...

Well, my dear readers and followers ...
I am sad by the events that are happening in the world ...
I write while Carlota sleeping here beside me with fever,
 not to go to school in this afternoon ...
It's cold in the outside. Fog .....
But here in the quiet home,
despite the high fever of my princess  ....
Silence .......
our home is only silence ........
this afternoon and this evening .......
only the noise of computer keyboard
and whatsApp vibration on the phone .......
I wish the world can breathe
the tranquility of our home .......
sad days ....... very sad days .........
but moms must always be prepared ......
to laugh and to play .........
A big hug my dear friends .....
thanks for your kind comments
and for visit my world of wool .......

Peace in the world .....

I love working with 6mm crochet hook,
fast and pleasant for crocheting.

This crocheted hat and the gray hat

both are for a friend, whom she loves coffee.
I think that she will have a confortable winter!

Wow! I think that this autumn
I'm learning many crochet things ...

Tutorial how to make a beanie for children 4-6 years

So after I have made the cowls that I showed here
I decided to make a crocheted hat for Carlota.

For to make this crochet hat
I worked with 6mm crochet hook
and yarn Stylecraft Sepecial Chunky.

Tutorial how to make a beanie for children 4-6 years
( US crochet terms )
Start: chain 30
5hdc, 20 dc, 5 sc
30 or 32 rows follow explanations

The procedure for making this hat is always the same,
the size will depend on the chains in start and number of rows.
That is simple like this!

And finally after 15 days of waiting
Tuesday it rained!
And Carlota could wear the wellies! yeeesss!!!!!

Because already 15 days ago when she would wake up
every morning just wondering:
" Mama! mama!  it rains today???
I want rain! in this country ever rain?!
I want it to rain and jump in puddles as Pepa Pig ! "
My love ... she is happy jumping in puddles,
making panellets, looking for bugs and ants,
she is happy when chasing a fly ...

Like every year, this week we have made panellets
Carlota can not feeling more happiness!
she helped in the whole process and enjoyed much.
These panellets have been delicious!
You can find the recipe here and here

Bona Castanyada  and
Happy Halloween, my dear friends ...

see you soon ...

tutorial how to make a beanie with pom pom

In addition to discovering a new stitch crochet
I have also discovered a good way to make hats.
In a few days I have made three beanies!
Today I show you the first that I did.
It is a bit high but with one double round
in the edging is perfect!

I have worked with two skeins of Stylecraft Special DK
 (for to make more bigger the yarn )
and I worked too with 6mm crochet hook.

To make this crochet hat
I follow a great video that you can see here
even then I've done different size.

Tutorial how to make a beanie
( US crochet terms )
Start: chain 45
5hdc, 35 dc, 5 sc
40 rows follow explanations of the video.

Fold  in half.
Sew the ends and go to the top.
Make some stitches around the top
and then pull the thread and fasten off.
You can decorate with a pom pom!

llavors estirem el fil, tanquem i rematem.
Pots decorar-ho amb un pom pom!

The purchase of tools to make pom poms
is a success! I think that this winter all the hats
will be decorated with pom poms!

I acknowledge that these two last weeks
I have not stopped making cowls and hats.
Some by me, some by Carlota, some others for give ...
with the arrival of the first cold days
I have crochet fever!

( You can see these crochet cowls here in my last post )

I like to crochet pieces like these
because I can then wear in fall or winter days.
Yesterday I dressed with the blue cowl
and today with the brown.
The gray hat is a gift to a friend,
although I also want one for me! hahahahaha!

See you soon dear friends!
I hope that you're as inspired as I am these days!

Have a happy day and happy crocheting!
Many thanks for being here

crochet cowls

I'm excited and inspired when I discover a new crochet stitch!
This happened to me a few days ago
and I have started to make a lot of crochet cowls ...

Through a blog very nice, as is the blog Ellebel (here)
I discovered a great video on how to do
this lovely crochet stitch (here
This video explains very well
and is very understandable.

To make these crochet cowls
I have worked with 6mm crochet hook
and wool  Stylecraft Special Chunky.

 And with my fever for to make cowls
I made other more big with blue color.
It was the first time that I worked with this brand
DERAMORES. I must say that it is a soft wool,
although it has more weight than Stylecraft.

Here I also worked with 6mm crochet hook.
And I like the brown cowl and the blue cowl.
These cowls are equal but different ...

I encourage you to do cowls like these.
Are pleasant to make and perfect for a gift.
And if you use thick wools
these will be much more beautiful!

I'm happy to see you again here
in my world of wool.

I wish you have a good week
and happy crocheting!

see you soon ...

especially younger children in the house.

this time without form, only  the foot closed round.
The other green hat is more larger by older brother.
Her mother wanted the two boys was dressed equal!

For to make these crochet hats
I've worked with 4mm crochet hook
and yarn Stylecraft Special DK.

I use the same pattern that I used for to make
the crochet hats for my dad, a year ago ...
is the same pattern but with a less increases.
Here is the pattern:

Rounds 7 to 19  make always  72 points.

You can make color combinations that you want. If you want to do a round of each color also become with beautiful hats ! And if you want more big hats must increase more points. It's simple!

And last week I made a purchase online ( here )
and I bought this wool ...

and these tools to make pom-poms ...

Do you know who loves to make pom poms?
yesssssssssssssssssssssssss ..........
Carlota enjoyed a great time!

With the arrival of cold I decide to put Ficus inside the house.
He lives six months on the inside and six months on the outside ...
From April he enjoys the terrace.
I love it because he lives here with me for many years ...
After so many years it really is a great survivor!

And as every year i'm thinking if my beloved succulents
they will survive in the long and cold winter ...
I think that yes because they are also a great survivors!

For now, I contemplate all the terrace plants and I'm thinking
if within a few months all these recover their splendor ...

 Really ... the nature is so beautiful ...!
The red flower belongs to a succulent plant.
And the yellow flowers are wild,  grow amid the weeds
on land that hides the bulbs of white lilies.
I do not know because  people say "a weed"
a flower so beautiful like this, right ...?

My dear readers and followers,
I hope you have enjoyed this post
with my stuff and my garden.
I'm happy to see you here again,
in my world of wool.

I wish you have a great week and you make
a lot of crochet and lovely crafts.

See you soon ...

crochet hat with earmuffs

Already come cold days
and few days ago I made this crocheted hat for Carlota.
A crocheted hat cheerful, colorful and with earmuffs.
Although I think that this hat is a bit big for Carlota ...

For to make this crochet hat I've worked
with 4mm crochet hook and yarn DROPS PARIS
Again an explosion of colors with this fantastic
100 % cotton yarn. I love it!

If you want to do a hat like this you will find
a very well explained tutorial  here
 ( for the final edging and the earmuffs I made some variation,
but basically I followed the tutorial )

At my daughter and I
we love looking at the sky and see the clouds ...
The autumn days are ideal to see the clouds ...

We love the autumn days!

My dear readers and followers,
thanks for visiting my world of wool

and thanks for spend a little of your time here ...

crocheted mandala

Since a long time I wanted to make a doily for the kitchen table.
I wanted to do it with the same colors as the doily of the dining table.
And today I present you my new crochet doily.

I'm working with 4mm crochet hook and DROPS PARIS yarn.
I love all the colors of these DROPS!!!!

The crocheted mandala measures 42 centimeters in diameter.
The first three rounds are the same color
and after comes the explosion of color ...

A total of 17 rounds with a edging with waves of blue ... 

Now that I've got a crochet doily for the dining table,
a crochet doily on the kitchen table ... now I need a crochet doily
for the bar of kitchen ... the kitchen marble is black
and I hate a lot .... I think it is time to give it a touch of color!

With this post today
I want to pay tribute to an exceptional being ...
I have read his blog for a long time ...
she is one of the people who inspired me
to make crochet with all his wonderful works ...
for me, the best way to make a tribute
is with this crochet mandala ...

My dear Wink ...
thanks for all the good times you gave me ... 
thanks for sharing your creativity with us .... 

I encourage you to know his work
