The City of Crochet

Crocheting...an escape from everyday life in Europe as I face the perils of yarn shopping in a foreign country and dealing with all of the crazy looks I get for crocheting & knitting on the public transportation system.

Two for twins!

Finally finished both baby blankets! Only took 4 months lol One is done using caron simply soft, the other Bernat Baby Coordinates. Both are  granny squares with different color patterns and a simple shell border.

Hopefully they like them! We are going over tomorrow to see them so will try to take pictures then.

Have a great night everyone!

Weekend Update

I finally have both blankets finished!  Yay!  All that is left to do is weave in the final few ends on the second blanket and then run them through the washing machine to make sure they are all clean and ready to be used by the girls.  Can not wait to give them to them on Wednesday when we go over for dinner.

Had a Halloween Party last night that we went to, which made it a 2 am morning with a 6 am wakeup!  No idea why I woke up so early, but was wide awake and bushy-tailed all day long to the dismay of Steve who had 7 hours of sleep and was struggling all day long!

Off to bed - may everyone have a great crafty week!

Back to crocheting!

It seems strange to have been away from the crafting world and not keeping up on all the hot "you must make this" patterns.  What are they now?  Anyone made anything recently?

I still have on my list of things to do is cleaning out the yarn stash, crafting accessories and book library.  I know I have lots of knitting magazines where, lets be honest here, I will NEVER find the time nor patience to make any of the plethora of sweaters and socks that they contain.  Will keep you all updated on this one!

I do want to start using up some of my yarn stash that I am not going to get rid of - mainly my cotton - any great dishcloth patterns you have come across recently?  I have done many of the hot patterns in the past - ballband etc and am looking for something new to try!

Living Life.....Loving It!

Really? Nothing posted since February?? Wow! All I can say is that I have been so happy and so busy that blogging has been far far far from my mind! So to catch everyone up...Steve moved in with me beginning of March. The dogs have gotten along fabulously and so have Steve and I! We spent the summer bowling on a league together with 2 friends which was great. Then on August 4th, the direction of my life changed with one question to which the answer was Yes! So come September 14th of next year I will be marrying my best friend. Here is a picture of us taken last night at Steve's cousin's wedding.
Might get this blog back on its original craftiness track one of these days....just need to find the time to finish some of my on-going projects! Talk to you all soon!!
