I want to share with you this poncho my mother made me for Christmas.
Here’s an easy project that is a great stash buster for your yarn and fabric leftovers.
I want to share with you a little something I’ve made for a baby girl called Rita.
Baby Leire is on her way and this dream catcher is for her.
I’m surrounded by babies! It must be that time of the year… 🙄 Anyway, as you know, I’m always happy to have an excuse to craft something new, so new babies means new presents to make.
If you are looking for a quick project to crochet before winter is over, these comfy stay-at-home socks are a good way to give use to odd skeins that may have remained from bigger projects, and they also make great gifts.
One small skein like these ones from Flying Tiger stores makes for one sock for small woman’s feet (about 36 in Spain, which according to this website would be like a 5.5 in US and a 3.5 in UK)
Using this hairy yarn adds a plus of difficulty because you need to literally feel (with your fingers) where the stitches are, since it’s impossible to determine with your eyes where are you supposed to insert your hook next… This can be quite discouraging at first… but this also means it won’t show if you make any mistakes… 😉
The pattern itself is not difficult, and you can follow video instructions in my previous post about socks from (can’t-bellieve-how-quick-time-goes-by) two years ago.
This Christmas I made some of these envelope clutches as a gift.
Autumn is here and you should start working on your Christmas projects if you don’t want to find yourself finishing your scarves and sweaters in Spring! (True story, happened to me last year…)
Now I’m proud to show you this project that took me several months to finish: the reversible Dark Knight scarf!
It’s made with double knitting, with thin wool and 2.5 mm needles. (= a pain in the ass.)
