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.

More socks

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.

Happy crochetting!

Reversible Dark Knight Scarf

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.)

Maya’s Grey Ruffled Scarf

One of the presents I’ve given this year is this scarf.

It was a request from my mother in law. She wanted to give her daughter a unique scarf for Christmas so she bought these fine yarns in Italy and I made the work.

I must admit I had no idea how I was supposed to work with the white… “thing” (I’m not sure you can call it “yarn”). I couldn’t find any directions, not even in the website of the manufacturer. But it turned out it is meant to make ruffles… so ruffles it is! 🙂

Amigurumi fruits and veggies play set

Those of you who follow the blog may have noticed that I’ve been posting some crochet fruits and veggies lately. Well, it all makes sense now that I can show you they are part of a playing set I made for my little cousins so they can pretend they go to the market, or to the garden, or whatever! 🙂

Here the fruits:

And here the veggies (although technically the tomato and the lemon are fruits too, and the mushrooms are fungi…):
