Santa is coming: crochet Christmas slippers

I know, I know: for most of you Christmas is far away in the future, and you probably don't even want to start thinking about it... But we online sellers must think things well ahead of our time! Did you know that many will do their Christmas purchases in November this year 2017? Or so they say. Anyway, here is a small, not expensive but super cosy and warm gift idea for your festive days, from ME to YOU: crochet Christmas slippers in soft chunky wool with red cotton trim and small bow on top. Merry Happy Everything in advance! (You find them here --> crochet slippers )

Colourful crochet Poncho Capelet

You might have followed my WIP for this, and now it is finally available in my shop: crochet poncho capelet, made in stripes of different colour, yarn and stitch motif! I really enjoyed crocheting this piece, because it never got boring. I don't know about you, but I love to invent as I go, choosing colours and stitches as I work. You know what I also like? The amazing comfort and cosyness of this cape: it can really fit most sizes, you just put it on and voilà! I might do a crochet blanket like this. What do you think?

A crochet field of flowers...in full bloom!

When you have an online shop and crochet all the time, you tend to forget about "older" projects, or rather: you tend to put them aside, store them someplace safe for future potential customers and don't think about them anymore. Well, yesterday I wanted to go back to one of my most successful projects, a mini crochet blanket throw with flower motifs, and decided to take new, fresher pictures of it. So here is the result, hope you like it :). crochet blanket throw with flowers

Simple crochet "granny" shawl

So I received this beautiful cake of yarn from Turkey, and I think the colour shade is great.... And what do you do when you receive new yarn? You immediately want to try it! Only, the right project just won't come to your mind *mumble, mumble*, so you end up doing something very simple, but that perfectly enhances the different colour shades. Like this very very simple "granny" shawl.
Have a look!

Crochet leaf

When I come to my family's house I always find older works I gave to my parents as a gift, or projects I experimented on... This leaf in cotton was a gift for my mum. I liked the result so much that I then created a full placemats set for my shop. 😃🌻💐🐝🐌🍂🍁

New crochet bucket bag

I must say I liked crocheting this bucket bag with this lovely orange chord yarn, then adding the purple "brimming" and signature heart charm with my logo. It's a shoulder / crossbody bag, just as I like them, rather small but compact, and stiff. I also added an automatic button to safely close it. So would you like to see more of this? 😉

Crochet infinity scarf

In spite of it being so hot here, let me show you how my crochet infinity cowl in jasmine stitch turned out. I used a whole 150 g. cotton yarn cake of ICE Yarn to do it, but it was fun, and the colour blending fantastic. Don't you think?

Crochet: EASIEST way to make the magic ring

How do you make the "magic ring" in crochet? There are a couple of ways, not all of them easy... I remember when I first learned it how difficult it was for me, having to wrap the yarn around your fingers in a specific way, and I don't know, maybe because I was a beginner, but it never came out quite right, or I had to try it a couple of times before it did, so much so that I avoided projects starting with a magic ring. Until I found this method! Let me share this with you. :)

Crochet cowl in jasmine stitch

Now now now... I know I am using this yarn for almost all of my projects, lately, but isn't it stunning? Also, I want to see how it looks with different stitches. This time, the amazing star/jasmine stitch: you don't know how much time and nerves it cost me learning this stitch, but now I master in perfectly, and I think it was worth the trouble. Don't you think? This is another woolen cowl. cowl
