Hi, my dear readers ♥
I finally took photos of all the crochet/knitting projects I finished in the past few months ! I have no idea why it took so long =D
The first one is really ancient, I remember finishing it after we got back from France in Summer...?!! The reason why I didn´t take any photos of it is that I was still hoping for some warm summer days at lake, with hula hoop and picnic ...
A few days ago I said to myself OK stop waiting, I will put this on, pretend it´s summer and finally take some photos ! ha ha... and found out that the crochet bikini top isn´t as perfect as I remember it... I don´t know what happened, but my nipples are peeking out when I wear it =D ha ha ...whatever ! I will wear it with tank top, it looks good as well.....or for sun bathing... or at home ! =D
I used crochet hook n.4 and some cute yarn I bought in Kaufland
the pattern is from a German magazine "Kleine Diana - Häkel Lust" 07/2014
Hippie flower power !
I CAN´T WAIT FOR SUMMER
...and I really want something like this
( Anyone knows about a good pattern? I searched ravelry twice and never saw one I like =/ ... so I will probably try to make one myself, because I NEED IT *o*)
The second thing I want to show you was meant to be my masterpiece, but ended up being a BIG joke =D ...but a good one !
For years I´ve been planning to knit a sweater for my boyfriend as Christmas gift. First I didn´t know how to knit, then I didn´t have any good pattern. Last September I finally found a magazine full of knitting patterns for men *o* So great! I chose the one I liked the most, ordered 1000000m of yarn, new needles and slowly.....slooooowly....very slowly...knitted a sweater for my dear boyfriend...
BUT...apparantely I chose a yarn too thick and the sweater ended up looking more like a sleeping bag than an actual sweater.
It took me so much time and efford to knit the front and back part with all those cables, that even though I knew it´s going to be huge, I finished it =D
It´s so humongous that I couldn´t find a box for it !
I had to sit on it while packing and used 1000m of duck tape, but it was still looking like it will explode in a few seconds !
When I wear it, it ends at my knees and sleeves are double length of my arms !
ha ha ha =D
I used circular needles n.10 and yarn Istria from Vlnika, pattern from Verena Special - Strick Fashion for Men
The last thing I want to show you is pretty simple and unexpected project, but I really like it and wore it trough all cold winter days.
Some day before Christmas we went to Christmas market to have mulled wine and just as I was drinking my second cup I noticed that the UNICEF stand has yarns for sale ! That instantly cought my attention and after I found out that they are selling a paper bag with yarn, pattern and pair of needles to support kids in Syria, I was giving them my money and went back home with a new skein of yarn and feeling that I did something good =)
After all these never-ending cables I was in mood for something really simple - for knitting while watching fairy-tales and romantic Christmas movies.
So I did just a simple infinity scarf from garter stitch ♥
I don´t remember which size of needles I used, but the name of the yarn is Basics Capello from Lana Grossa
... and full outfit photos !
I wore my new grey dress from Gudrun Sjõdén ♥
I couldn´t help it, he looks so terrified =D
Back to knitting !
Since Christmas I´ve been working on an over-sized crimson sweater for me, I finished The Lonely Tree Shawl and Baktus for my friend *__*
A lot to post about !
...let´s keep fingers crossed that I will manage to finish this sweater when it´s still at least a bit cold and not at the beginning of June =D
Are you knitting / crocheting something at the moment ? I´m curious, tell me =) !
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
