    Hot hot hot!!

    Man, it’s way too HOT here. Too hot to do anything. Personally, I’m not good with this kind of heat (i.e. 30-35 Β°C). I feel so lethargic and my arms and legs weigh like lead. So there wasn’t much action around here this weekend. BUT I did make a decision about the patchwork blanket. To be honest, I sort of…

    Patchwork blanket

    Again I let myself get tempted to start something new, even though I had planned to first finish some of my WIPs. But be honest, would you be able to resist this?      Isn’t it gorgeous? And such beautiful colours. I for one couldn’t resist and dived in my stash. For a while now I have been looking for a…

    Kaleidoscoop TADAAA!

    Thanks to the awful weather (Not that I’m happy about that. What kind of summer is this?) I managed to finish my kaleidoscope blanket already! Only a couple of days ago I finished joining all the squares. I hadn’t even started with the border. But once I knew what I wanted, the border crocheted super fast. Taking pictures of the…

    Ta-daaaa: My Granny Stripe β€œAcross the Rainbow Bridge”

    Yes! Finally finished! My excruciatingly beautiful (if I do say so myself) Granny Stripe! πŸ˜€ I named him Across the Rainbow Bridge, a reference to a song by Areon: Almost a year I crocheted on this. Of course, not continuously, but still, almost a year. I’m soooooo happy a persevered and finished it. And he turned out so so beautiful!…

    Pippi LΓ₯ngstrump

    It was about time that I got my act together and finished this doll. I started this Pippi Langkous back in September of last year. I crocheted on her non stop until I had finished her legs, body and head. Then the poor thing sat armless and hairless on my UFO-pile (BTW, UFO in the crochet world means Unfinished Object.…

    Padma: CAL met Dawn Toussaint

    I love Dawn Toussaint‘s amigurumi. They are all so cute and cuddly πŸ™‚ I was intimidated for a long time to even think about trying to make one of her patterns, but with my Kitty Orange I finally made the plunge. And surprise (!), it wasn’t really that hard πŸ˜€ I discovered not so long ago that Dawn has a…

    Kitty Orange is finished

    Thank you everyone who voted on the nose-poll and gave their opinion! The poll results were pretty close. Almost a 50/50 vote! But, I have now managed to make a decision for Kitty’s nose! But before the big reveal, a little background πŸ˜‰ Kitty was made for my godmother. She asked me to make her another amigurumi – I had…

    Blub blub blub

    After finishing the ripple blanket and the cerulean half granny square, I still had some scraps of the wool left. So, to stay in the sea/ocean theme, I crocheted this amigurumi fish. This is a very easy pattern to crochet. It’s freely available from this blog here. No sewing is required for this fish, as the fins are crocheted by…

    How I learned to Crochet

    Crocheting; a necessity if you want to make amigurumi. I have always had a vague interest for crocheting, but never ventured further than an interest. The only thing I could crochet was a chain. With my fingers. 8) But now that I wanted to create amigurumi I had to learn how to crochet properly. During a visit I had told…
