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 ...

My interest in making crochet cowls this year is so great
that after one, I make an other. And today I will show you
a new set of crochet: one cowl and mittens.
Hope you like it!


To make this cowl I have using  the basket weave stitch.
I really like! And you, do you like it?
It is a gift for one friend ...


I have worked with 4mm crochet hook and yarn Stylecraft Special DK.
The purple wool was ending, so I do crochet mittens with green ...


I wanted to wait until next winter to buy wool ...
but I can not see empty wool boxes ...
and there are still many cold days for to do
crochet accessories for winter, right?
So I place an order wool ....


Today the postman woke me up

I made the purchase here, really fast service
considering that came from England ...
Now I have a lot of wool and many projects in my head ...
I am addicted to wool ...
