Hi, my dear readers ♪
Finally I took photos of all my finished crochet projects since September !
Let´s start with the most challenging one - crochet waistcoat for my boyfriend.
He was asking me if I will crochet a waistcoat for him for quite a long time, but I was still unsure about the pattern. I was looking through the whole internet, but crochet patterns for anything nice for men are well-hidden or they doesn´t exist at all...
But after my bf even bought yarn for the waistcoat by himself (!) I just HAD TO make it somehow and I decided to improvize. I just took his cardigan and made a pattern of it without sleeves and started to work o_o
Usually when I use pattern from a magazine I need to start the whole work twice or three time because it´s always not right, but this time it was just one try and finished ! Fits perfectly !
...maybe I should improvize more =)
I made the waistcoat with a crochet hook n.4, with just hdc and dc (US terms) and I used those beautiful wooden handmade buttons (which I bought for myself at first ehm um...well, maybe next time).
The second project I finished is a new winter set - this time in dark-green !
I bought this beautiful yarn in sales when I was in Nürnberg and decided to make of it this weird cute hat for kids ...for me =3 Two skeins contained much more meters of yarn than I expected so I made matching fingerless gloves as well...and there´s still some yarn left o_o it´s a magical never-ending yarn !
I used crochet hook n.4, the hat is made by the pattern I mention above and gloves are improvisation.
And the last thing is Summer Sling Tote which I wanted to make for ages, but there was still "not enough time". I made it from yarn leftovers, because I have SO MANY of them...I´m seriously thinking about starting to make granny squares from them and in the end sew them all together in one huge psychedelic blanket *___*
But back to the bag.
I wanted to make a lining inside, I really wanted...but I´m just not good at sewing bags...I don´t understand the logic of sewing bag inside the bag - it ended up like a huge epic fail and the bag is fine even without it <_<
I´m not good at knitting, but I really wish to get this beautiful book for Christmas and so I need to work, work, work and improve *_*
So far I´m almost done with a scarf, but it rolled into something which looks more like a sandworm from Beetlejuice than a winter accessory...
...and a day before yesterday I bought circular needles and I will try to make a beanie...
