The giant granny square works up very quickly.
Row after row. Still struggling a bit with the colours.
It's not that I don't like them, but there's just so much contrast... ;-)
I think I will make another giant granny in my 'own' colours.
However, first have to finish this one!
Have a nice day! ♦♦♦
PS. My hands are not as gigantic as might seem from the picture, lol.
it's only the throw that's giant. ;-)
It also made me realise it really is time for a new post...
However, it has been very busy around here. I don't get much crocheting done. (And I'm seriously behind visiting all your lovely blogs out there, but I will pop around to say hello soon!)
Although work-work takes up most of my time, I did manage over the last weeks to start (but not finish, nope) some new projects. Which have one thing in common: an unusual (as in: unusual for me) colour combination.
This is supposed to become a giant granny square throw with a vintage vibe... I'm struggling a bit with the colours because there so different from my usual palette. Mmm, we'll see how & if that works out. At least a big granny square is a guarantee for relaxing crocheting, perfect after a long & tiring day at work.
Then there's also this winter project (scarf, hat and mittens). Even more unusual colours, but I fell for the very soft yarn. (Which only came in these colours, haha.)
And the last wip: this potholder sample. It should become the first of a new range of potholders... (And okay, this is made with colours that are more customary for me.)
Sorry, the pics are not the best (made in a bit of a rush) - I'm slightly worried you will be disappointed about the quality after reading Coco Rose's sweet words. ;-)
♦♦♦Thanks for dropping by & have a lovely day. ♦♦♦
There was Nikkim Vinnis... (A cotton I was dying to try for quite a while now.)
And more Vinnis...Not only is this yarn very beautiful,
it is hand dyed and balled by women from an economically depressed area of South Africa. So it empowers women who can really use some empowerment.
And there was Elle Premier cotton in gorgeous colours... Looking forward to working with this yarn too!
Pigtails' colour choice is really spot on, I simply love all the colours she chose!
So yesterday I have been crocheting like my life was at stake. Finally I could work with Vinnis, hooray! And it is great. It's soft and a real treat to crochet with.
I'm making a scarf (hoping to finish it today).
In Sea Green, Stone & Green Slate.
About the pattern: I wanted to make something wavy, but not lacy, so the amazing texture of this yarn would show at its best. And when Jeannette pinned this picture yesterday, I knew at once this would be it. You can find the pattern here. I'm using a 4,5 mm crochet hook.
