The Crocheted Gray Granny Square Shawl

The Crocheted Gray Granny Square Shawl

Almost a year ago my father’s mother passed away. I have her photo on the shelf, and plenty of her “stuff”. Using some wool found in her stash, I crocheted a granny square shawl for myself. I love it and I’m so happy we finally got snow before New Year’s so I could enjoy it […]

Crocheting with Tricot

Crocheting with Tricot

I have t-shirt yarn. Balls of cut and rolled fabric. But the thing I enjoy most is crocheting with it, not cutting it up and making it. So when I found these huge spools of already made tricot “yarn” I bought three and started crocheting in the round. Related PostsI got art supplies now Creativity […]

The Heart Cat Story

The Heart Cat Story

The Heart Cat (Hjärtekatten) is a Swedish Craft Project that I joined when it started this spring. It started when two Swedish women in Gothenburg sent out a call for crocheted softies to give to children that suffers from some kind of heart disease. Something that will remind the child and their family of that […]

Amigurumi duckling from a pattern

Amigurumi duckling  from a pattern

When I received the book Kyuuto I decided to try to make an amigurumi from a pattern. My previous ones I’ve made free hand. I didn’t think I would need the book except for great visual inspiration, but I’m so glad I did try one of the patterns! It was easy, fun and my first […]

Cotton time when joining the ripple craze

Not a lot of blog posts here this week because I’ve been crocheting. On Saturday I went for a long walk (couple of hours long walk!). Lovely autumn air and in the middle I had a pit stop at a yarn/fabric shop where on impulse I picked up a couple of skeins of cotton yarn […]

From Mom’s yarn basket

From Mom’s yarn basket

I found a ball of white wool yarn in mom’s knitting basket. I couldn’t resist it. I crocheted another amigurumi teddy bear, my first white one. I really like her blue eyes and black full eye-lashes. What do you think? This one has already moved away from home (to Kiruna!) and will be a baptismal […]
