Dear Erika @erika.and.crow asked me what I was working on #thistimelastyear and it was the first #katasquare of many that I thought would become a blanket (but instead ended up as a poncho). This particular square is still waiting patiently to become something though 😂. Someday I’ll find it’s purpose but ‘til then... 😊
Enjoy the weekend friends!
Yarn: drops karisma and sandnes toppull, pattern: Kata square, hook: 7.0 mm
Sweet Céline @lejardindeceline asked me #widn and I'm just about to border the plane back to Sweden. Zakynthos has been a treat, and I managed to get plenty crochet done too 💪🏻👌🏻 ✅. Would the gorgeous @svealealej @madebymelw and @kolorintxus like to play? No pressure 😙
Yarn: drops fabel, pattern: harlequin blanket, hook: 4.0 mm
Moroccan tile by @mooglyblog , had to give it a try and now I'm convinced I have to make at least two cushions, some coasters and probably a scarf or two in this pattern! 😍👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Yarn: drops fabel, hook: 4.0 mm, pattern: Moroccan tile afghan
Skuggan is inspecting my sweater shrug. I think I've figured out a good way to make the sleeves longer. Yay! 💥
Yarn: Toppull by Sandnes garn, hook: 9.0 mm, pattern: square: Wisteria, Sweater shrug: my own.
Förmodligen är det inte många som vet men idag är det alla virkares högtid. Det firar jag med ett kollage gjort av egna och andras rutor! (Två virkposter nästan på raken- förlåt, snart återgår jag till selfies). It's #grannysquareday y'all! Check
#grannysquareday2017 for awesome pictures and collages during this day!
One side of a cushion done and I'm loving it! The colors are great and the yarn is the softest ever! Now on to the other side 💪🏻👍🏻😊
Yarn: drops alpaca, hook: 3.5 mm, pattern: vintage flower square by @potterandbloom
Hanging out in the woods in my friends cabin. Love the sound of wind through the trees, a bumblebee's buzzing, a bird's chirping... ❤️
Oh also- my spider shawl is done!
Yarn: Zauberball by Schoppelwolle, hook: 5.0 mm, pattern: some spider shawl pattern from Schachenmayr
My first chevron and I can't believe I haven't tried this before. I love how each side of the blanket look different depending of how many rows I make of each color. And then the multicolored yarn adds extra effects upon that! 😍
Yarn: drops fabel, hook: 4.0, pattern: single crochet chevron (in back loops only).
Of all the multicolored yarns I've used for my colorful blanket this is my favorite. Makes me think of summer rain and thunderstorms. ⛈🌸🌾
Yarn: drops fabel, hook: 4.0 mm, pattern: wisteria.
I was tagged for #widn by the lovely ladies @rikaulricha @tangleandstitch @lundilina, Thank you so much for thinking about me 💖😙💖.
I finally got a couple of minutes to crochet. Otherwise it's all work and no play for me atm. 😖
I tag anyone who fancy to play along.
Yarn: drops fabel, hook: 4.0 mm, pattern: centred square
Today I'm finishing this shawl with a fringe border. If there's a better (safer) way to fasten the fringes than this I'd be happy for any advice. I don't want them to fall off... 🙂
Have a great weekend! 💖💜❤️
Yarn: Schoppel zauberball crazy (Indisch Rosa), hook: 5.0 mm, pattern: some spider shawl pattern.
Today I'm turning circles into hexie flowers. Skuggan is helping. And by helping I mean shamelessly taking my seat in the couch, kindly accepting me squeezing in at the outermost side of it ... 🙄🤥😼
Yarn: järbo 8/4, hook: 3.0 mm, pattern: hexagon flower.
Back to home and back to business after a lovely weekend at Dömle, Värmland, where one of my best friends got married. I'm the one at the bottom right 👋🏻
Yarn: Drops Fabel, hook: 4.0 mm, pattern: Circle in a square by Jan Eaton.
The very sweet Johanna @ihan_oikea_blogi sked me for #widn and as a matter of fact I've started joining these wonderful Victorian lattice squares. Takes longer than expected but well worth it 💚. Would my friends @petalshed @virrkpannan @my_middle_drawer @flzvarol like to play? No pressure!
Yarn: Scheepjes Sugar Rush, hook: 1.5 mm, pattern: Victorian lattice square.
Sweet @rikaulricha asked me what I was working on a year ago and it was these Japanese flowers that one day may become a poncho, or a cardi, or a blanket... Far from finished though. 🌷😇🌻 Would @ak_at_home @turquoiseaddict @7lilsheep @barbertondaisy like to play along? No pressure.
Yesterday the train I was going home with was 4 hrs late which gave me plenty of time to work on something new! I'm adapting the pattern on the bright yellow to get more "soft" petals (I think the left side of each petal is a bit sharp in the original pattern). This is btw definitely colours out of my comfort zone 😂
Yarn: Järbo 8/4, hook: 3.0 mm, pattern: lace flower hexagon.
Wohoo! Table cloth finished, can't believe I actually finished something before it was "too late"!!! 😄😄😄💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼
Yarn: Järbo 8/4, hook: 3.0 mm, pattern: My own adapted version of the small talk shawl. Edge is n:o 113 from the book "Crochet borders" by Edie Eckman.
Seeing Nicole's @tangleandstitch awesome squares I just had to try to figure out the pattern for the painted roses and this is my resault. Think I'll make a plain backside and make a potholder. Have a great weekend! 😙
Yarn: Drops Paris, hook: 6.0 mm, pattern: painted roses (sort of) by @sandracherryhrt
It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life // Circle of Life by Elton John
Yarn: Drops Alpaca, hook: 3.5 mm, pattern: vintage flower square.
When you saw a weary man
Were you quick to realize
The thing he needed most
Was a kind look from your eyes
When you saw an angry face
And the faces that you scanned
Did you soften up a bit
With the flower from your hands //Did you give the world some love today baby./ Doris
What a great start to the weekend! Crochet and sunshine, COLOUR burst and tea. I'm totally in love with this #wip .

Butterfly stitch prayer shawl done for mummy. Love this Koigu yarn I got at Loop @looplondonloves in London, it's so soft! Can you see those purple flowers in the background? Spring is here! 💜🌷💜
Yarn: Koigu, hook: 4.5 mm, pattern: butterfly stitch prayer shawl.
I've been so curious about @scheepjes yarns and now I finally have decided on a project where I can try the maxi sugar rush.
I mean... come on!? Are these colours for real??? (Yes, they are!) Super excited right now 😍😃😍😃😍😃😍. Thank you @favoritgarner for a quick delivery, I'm quite sure I'll be buying a LOT more of these yarns.💖💖💖

Finally I got around to block my starflower mandala. It's so hard to get the shape exactly round- how do you all manage to get it perfect?! Have a great weekend 🌞❄️☃️🌷
Yarn: Järbo 8/4, hook: 2.5 mm, pattern: starflower mandala
Yesterday @majashobbyrum asked for #widn , thank you dear for the tag 😙. Well, birthdays are coming up as well as weddings and people moving into new houses so I guess I'll have to start working on all those #wip ' s I have intended for them! Here's a shawl for... "someone" 🙈🙉🙊.
Would you lovelies ladies @madebymelw @rikaulricha @joakhui80 @nesimerciger to play?
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM, hook: 4.5 mm, pattern: butterfly stitch prayer shawl.
Yes, still focusing on this tablecloth since my kitchen really could use the colour splash it would give. Almost worked up 400 g yarn now, still not even halfway there... What are you up to this evening (or morning/night/day etc)?
Yarn: Järbo 8/4, hook: 3.0 mm, pattern: my own adaption of the small talk shawl.
This is how big my tablecloth has gotten using 200g cotton yarn. Almost perfect for the small table at our porch here in Thailand but my dinner table is much bigger so I better keep going! 💪🏻💛💪🏻
