It’s been a busy few weeks in our household and I’ve also felt a little overwhelmed with all my crochet too- so many ideas, just not enough time! Writing down a crochet ‘to-do-list’ has certainly helped.
So this week I’m giving you all a quick little round-up by photos…
This was one of the views from the clifftops last weekend- such a dramatic sky seeing the rain out at sea…
A dear friend from The Netherlands sent us a parcel full of goodies to celebrate ‘Sinterklass’ and she included this lovely ‘crochet your own nativity scene’ book. Another to add to my to-do-list. I probably won’t get this done in time for this year. One to add for next Christmas!
This morning the sea looked gorgeous (quite different to earlier in the week when we had stormy seas) and here’s my granny square blanket progress. I’m probably about a third of the way through but I will put it on hold for now as I have some Christmas gifts to crochet…
I’ve chosen to make gifts using Hoooked Zpagetti yarn and a 12mm hook so they will crochet up super quick. I can’t show anymore than this at the moment as some of the recipients read this blog!
And here is the sunset which I’ve just taken a photo of… 🙂
Also, I finally received feedback for my first three samples for part 2 of the Crochet Diploma…more on that next week 🙂
Hope you are all managing to enjoy some crochet at this busy time of year! 🙂 🙂
Love the photos.
When I was little, my mum and I knitted a Nativity scene. We made one character per year. It’s still going, 15 years since the last character was finished. The only hiccup being when the puppy ate baby Jesus!
How fabulous! That must be so special.. was baby Jesus fixable?? Our Salty has chewed some things in the past that were beyond repair! 🙂 🙂
No, poor Baby Jesus was very badly damaged and had to be replaced
Lovely pics. I love that you take all your work down to the beach to photograph. do you have to carry it far? Look forward to hearing about your diploma feedback.
Thanks Bekki! 🙂 I don’t have far to get to the beach at all so it’s quite easy to take my crochet with me. We’re really lucky and I can ‘nip’ down to the beach in just a couple of minutes.. 🙂
I’m enjoying seeing your granny square blanket grow. Festive colours too!
Thanks Rosina 🙂 I’m loving the colours too although I haven’t made any progress since this blog post…
Great photos Eleonora. I know that overwhelming feeling well, so much to do but so little time! Lists help me a lot – so long as I don’t lose my notebook with them in!! Love the look of the yarny nativity – so cute 🙂
Thanks so much 🙂 Yes, lists at certainly helping me get through this busy time of year! 🙂
Such a lovely blanket. And great idea with the zpaghetti! I love chunky yarns too! My go to if i have to work something in short notice!
Thanks Bethany-Jade. Yes the chunky yarn is great but a little heavy on the hands. Made mine ache!:)
Indeed! I find the same with arm knitting! Gives you sore wrists if you take too long, and you cant just put it down like you would any other kind of knit of crochet!
lovely snap shots. i love that you take all of your paintings down to the beach to picture.
Thanks so much for those kind words (sorry for the delay in responding) Luckily we live close by to a beach so I don’t have that far to take things! 😀
