Howdy doody! I cannot believe it’s been over 2 months since I have posted. Bit slack but I have been so busy with trying to heal and crochet and do everything else I’m supposed to do.
I would firstly like to say a big thank you to my followers! I have cracked the 100 mark. I didn’t think anyone would want to follow me, but I’m so very glad you do. I love to share my love of crochet and try and inspire you.
Goodness me where to start, I’ve been crocheting here and there and have only just gotten back to feeling nearly 100% again. It’s taken a long time, a lot long than I thought it would. I guess it doesn’t help when you don’t get sleep at night which is when your body heals. Lucky I love that boy! He is 10 months old already. Crazy how fast time flies. Anyhow back to what I’ve been doing. I’ll post a few photos, as I believe they are sometimes more interesting than my gobble-de-goop (babble that just falls out constantly).
So the photo above is the ‘look’ I’ve been wanting to achieve for a while and I finally got it! I hope you like it as much as I do. I got these amazing ‘props’ (they are real things too) from Kmart 🙂 Love Kmart.
What’s the next best thing to crocheting? YARN we all love it. And I got a nice to top up to my stash. This yarn is amazing. It’s DMC Natura Just Cotton and Natura XL. They are both amazing to work with and the stitch definition :O like WOW, it holds beautifully. Highly recommend this gorgeous material.
If it’s not clear yet, I love yarn. Maybe slightly obsessed with it. Here’s my Instagram post that I wrote to go along with this amazing photo (if I do say so myself) hehe. (This post could literally go on and on)
~~ I’d like to take this moment in time to talk about yarn. When I first started crocheting I called yarn ‘wool’. It wasn’t until I started exploring the craft stores more and gaining more knowledge after crocheting for a while did I realise there were many types of yarn. How amazing is yarn!!! Like so awesome 😂 I would marry it if I could, ok so maybe not marry it but having an endless supply would be pretty close.
Without yarn of any type how could we crochet the amazing things we make? This long piece of material along with a short funny thing with a hook on the end and tadaaa the possibilities are now endless as your imagination (or someone else’s hehe). I think crochet is amazing but without yarn we couldn’t do it. So this is to thank the yarn for being there, offering their services so that we can put our creativity to good use and keep our sanity in check.
I love yarn. I am a yarn addict but it’s ok. I can acknowledge it and am happy to shout it out at the top of my voice to all and any who are around me at the time. They may look at me a little oddly but that’s fine by me. Why? Because I LOVE YARN 😂😂😂. I love photographing yarn, feeling yarn, using yarn, and especially storing yarn. I love to sort it in colours and look at how pretty it is. I love yarn.
I do have favourites, mostly cotton as it’s easy to crochet all year round especially when hot and humid. I don’t want to offend the other types of yarn so I won’t mention any more favourites 😉.
So thank you yarn once again. I do love you. 😙😙😗😗😂😂. ~~
I think deep down we all share that love for yarn. Admit it, you are just a little bit freaky like me! hehe
Look how amazing yarn is. It just has to sit there and tadaaa, it makes you fall in love.
Even these colours which I don’t normally go for are making me fall in love too. So maybe I love all yarn in any colour, but it has to be a good combination. I’m a bit funny like that, I will mix balls together and see which ones really stand out and compliment each other, or compliment each other by being the contrast or opposite. I am at a loss for the correct words but this photo says enough.
Like these colours 😍. I have a thing for pastels and then pop a brighter shade in there and BAM even more 😍😍 in love. See how nicely the stitch looks made in this yarn!!
Well this here is today’s Instagram post ‘Every Monday morning needs a rainbow’. Recognise this blanket? One of the brightest things I have ever crocheted. The Mexican Inspired Crochet Blanket which I made for my hubby-t0-be is now getting put to use! I will have to make his car another blanket next year. But in the mean time we get to see the beauty of this one a lot more often.
You can make your very own one, my FREE pattern for this blanket is HERE. It’s such an easy blanket to make and the layout is all done for you. You can of course design your own.
I’m going to end with a photo of my Wheel of Hope Mandala, a larger version of this FREE pattern. I really love this mandala and am going to add it to my list of to-do’s to make more. I will have to write up the rest of the pattern to make it larger. On the to-do list again lol. Till next time, Happy Hooking 😙😙😙.
