crochet blanket of circles

Today is the big day: the crochet circles blanket is already finished!
a beautiful blanket of granny squares, a afghan blanket ...
my beautiful handmade crochet blanket!


 In total 68 granny squares of three colorful circles
and bordered by two rounds of white wool.
I think I started it in 2012 ... more than three years ago ...


The edging very easy... as you can see in the photo...
as always I made waves in the edging ...


And a crocheted blanket like this deserves leave home
after be three years in cardboard boxes, right?
So I thought  for the photo shoot we can going for a walk ...


These landscapes are from  Estany Ivars i Vila-sana
 Very near where I live ...


This morning was sunny and there was no one ...
only the birds singing and the sound of the leaves in the wind ...


For to make this crochet blanket I've used Stylecraft Special DK
and I've worked with 3mm crochet hook.


This crochet blanket measures 90 x 90 centímeters,
it is a rather small size, almost baby blanket ...
But I also wanted to have it always on the couch
in our living room, without disturb for be big size
and for give a touch of joy ...


Carlota love this blanket and these years she play
many hours with circles and granny squares before joined.
She said: Mom! It's my blanket!!! you finish very soon???


Rays of light in the morning through circles ...
I think we can to welcome spring as it seems that has come here ....


The blanket deserved this good walk, right?


Sometimes we have good places to walk very near to home ...
Only can want to go. And enjoy what the earth offers ...


This pond was destroyed and drying for many years
and now we have recovered. The birds are happy
and stopping here in their migrations ...


This blanket will be for many years about my legs
while I do others works crochet ...
With this variety of colors it is very inspiring, right?
They not are equal circles! all are different!!!


With four crochet circles that left over
I'm immersed in a crochet cushion.
Very soon you can see here in
my world of wool
Thanks for coming to visit me!

See you soon! 
I wish a good weekend and
Happy Easter!

baskets with t-shirt yarn and Carlos Sadness - No Vuelvas a Japon

Long time ago that I did not work with t-shirt yarn.
Do not could remember the fun that causes me
work with this material when I see as projects grow.
Today I will show you a couple of baskets
that I made for a good friend ...


The t-shirt yarn is ideal for to make baskets.
And I think  the grey and pink  look very well .
For these projects I worked with a 9 mm crochet hook. 


The grey basket has a chain for to hang. Very useful, right?
In the pink basket I made many crochet rounds
for to make it very high and then folded to give more rigidity.


 Make your own baskets of t-shirt yarn! they are ideal
for keeping tidy our craft rooms!

March is a hard month in the job ...
and I have not done much crocheting ...
I hope this week I'll make many hours of crochet ...


And my little one is still hardworking as always ...
Make necklaces, painting, puzzles ...
she must always be well busy!
And long as we can not go play in the park
we always work at home ....


She loves to paint, do puzzles and do things beside me ...
And I love the portrait that she has painted today ...
If you look on the couch you can see my blanket
of crochet circles ... I hope I finish very soon ...

And this song No vuelvas a Japon, of Carlos Sadness

A set of crochet very happy, for the last days of winter cold
and cheerfull for to receive soon month March,

Again I used the granny stitch, this time a line for each color.
The mittens this time are shorter than the other crochet works I've done.


I have worked with 4mm hook and yarn Sylecraft Special DK.


And for do not be tempted to give away,
which causes then  never I do not have anything handmade for me ...
today I have won me this precious crocheted set!


And yesterday was a perfect day
to go see the sea and I met with a good friend.
What nice day, my dear friend ... Perfect!
One day full energy and a good day for enjoy my little one.
She would be always in the beach in Cambrils ...
So ... we we go!


Practiced launching stones again and again and again ...
always she finds a stone that she must take the stone and throw it ...
she loooooooooooooove it!


She enjoyed playing with the sand.
And we found a little treasure!
We invented the story ... Once upon a time ...
a boat and a dish very nice it fell into the water ...
and the dish broke and went to the seabed ...
and the waves brought a little piece of dish on the beach ...
we love inventing stories!


I like sunsets. Always. In the sea. In the field.
At home. When I drive the car ... When I'm walking
and playing with my daughter ... I love sunsets ...
And are ideal for to take photos ...

Fine weather coming soon ,
wakes me creativity and desire to do things.
A little sun and my instinct to leave each day
to see the plants on the terrace ...
after the snowfall still have survived some of the smaller ...



Today I could not resist to do some gardening and pruning the hydrangeas ...
I'll see if I'm lucky and blooms as much as last year!
I cut the leaves lily, do not know if I've done well ...
but they were severely damaged by the snow ...
I think there will be no any problem ...
_____________________

Jasmine Thompson 's voice and Robin Schulz music ...
Sun Goes Down ...
a sunset shared with friends ...
a perfect moment!



Have a nice weekend and happy crocheting,

new set of mittens and crochet cowl

Although the days are not so cold is still winter time
and this is nice  to create warm and soft accessories.
As this new set of mittens and crochet cowl ...


The crocheted cowl was brown and it looked sad,
so I added the pink and purple to brighten a bit.
The mittens I wanted to make them different, and why not?


I have worked with 4mm crochet hook and yarn Stylcraft Special DK


As you have been able to verify this winter my blog
is full of  basketweave stitch ....
is incredible the softness and fluffiness that gives this stitch!


To make the initial part in mittens I worked one double crochet in front
and one double crochet  on behind. It is the first time I do.
The idea came to me one day I'm  thinking with the
basketweave stitch. 


I am very happy with the outcome and
I am happy because that is a gift for a friend.
I hope she like it ...

Many thanks to you for visit me in
my world of wool ...
thanks for your lovely comments, thanks for your emails ....

I wish you have a nice week full of creativity and beautiful things!

kisses to you all my dear readers and followers!

crocheted hat for me and Sia - Elastic Heart - Chandelier

 Finally, I have a crochet hat for me.
This is ideal for those cold polar days. 
 Here is my winter hat. Pink and cream.


 This time I have worked with 5mm crochet hook and yarn
Stylecraft Special Chunky. I like chunky wool for  hats.


And I doubt: I make or not I make a pom pom for the crocheted hat?
Well...  I asked my daughter ... And she told me: mama yes!
But I like to go unnoticed ....
and this will be difficult with a pom pom so great!
______________

Like when a movie touched me in my heart, that is the impression  ...
Has happened with these two songs and their videos.
Surely you've already seen, have millions of hits.
The dancer  Maddie Ziegler  an incredible artist.
Very young and very talented. No words.


A few days ago that never stops ringing these two songs of Sia
And I am impressed by the work of Shia LaBeouf
I would give an Oscar for his great performance. No words.
I can not say anything more. Listen again and again ....
and again .... and again .....


I think that I'm fortunate to be able to see where art ...
in a video, a performance, a film, a poetry...
the crochet is my small contribution to create nice things ...
or not beautiful for someone ... but yes for me ...
there are so many ways to express art ...
I think that humanity could no longer live without the art,
without music, without books, without movies ... 
what do you think ...?

Be happy, dear readers ...
and I hope you create many beautiful things ...
kisses to you all ...

 One day I to decide to take small pieces of wool.
And I make granny squares.
And then I think: it could become cushions?
the creative process is underway ...


Although I was worked first crochet and then I sewed the fabric for the cover .....


Next time I'll do it in reverse, because I had to undo
some crocheted rounds because they exceeded from the fabric ......


Two crochet cushions and with the same finish
turquoise, pink and finally white ...  What  you prefer ...?

  
One pillowcase measures 40 x 40 centímeters
and other pillowcase measures 50 x 42 centimeters ...


Particularly I have to say that I like more the cushion crocheted white.
