Okay, what I’m about to share now makes me really disappointed and sad. When I came home from Finland I decided to crochet a blanket for Benjam. I had him pick out whatever colors he wanted and ordered the yarns on the internet. I intentionally ordered less because I’m pretty new to this and didn’t really know how big of a blanket I’m going to get with a certain amount of yarn. So I started with the blanket. When I used almost all of my original 16+8 yarns (16 blue-gray, 8 white) I was going to order more. But.. On the store where I ordered them before they didn’t have the white anymore. So I ordered the blue-gray from there and more white from another store. They were supposed to send me both orders sometime in January since they had some kind of Christmas break. But earlier this week I recieved an email from the store where I bought the original 24 yarns and now ordered more blue-gray there, saying that the company isn’t making that color anymore. -.-
So a blanket that was supposed to be 110×190 is only 110×115. 😦
Note to self: NEVER buy yarn on the internet anymore.
Anyway, here’s the blanket.
As some of you probably know, my boyfriend’s moved in into a new appartment a few weeks ago. He keeps complaining that it’s not cozy enough and so I decided to help him to get settled in at least a little bit. This is a crocheted doily I made for his table, following this youtube tutorial. It’s not perfect, but here’s how it turned out. 🙂
So, who remembers the crocheted baby blanket I made in the summer?! If you don’t, just click here. Anyway, I’ve been thinking of adding something to it. Now that I know who I’m going to give it to, I decided to make pink flowers on the top of it. I really like how it turned out. What about you? 🙂
I’m back with another crochet project. This time a present for my schoolmate’s cousin’s baby boy that’s gonna soon enter this world. 🙂 You probably know that in the summer I crocheted with the help of youtube videos. This time I couldn’t use that so much, since the yarns I had were much thinner, so I had to make the pattern up myself. Here is how it turned out! 🙂
I used my old ChouChou doll as a model. It works out just great because it’s a newborn baby size (48cm long). 🙂
This morning I got a bit irritated at my hair because they were just everywhere. And later when I got bored I thought: Why not make a headband? This one took me about 20 minutes to make.
I chained 55 stiches (you just have to try it around your head), slip stiched to the first stich, chained the same number of stiches (55) again, slip stiched to the same stich as first time and then I found a Crochet flower tutorial, followed it, and then sewed the flower on the headband.
I’m not a professional but it sure holds my hair in place. What do you think? 🙂
