Shabby Chic Rose Granny Free Pattern Shabby Chic Rose Granny By AnnooCrochet Designs Throughout history no flower has been so loved, or renowned as the rose. Rose is older than the human hands that first cared for it, drew pictures of it, and celebrated rose in music and lore. Forty million years ago, a rose left its imprint on a slate deposit at the Florissant Fossil Beds in Colorado, and fossils of roses from Oregon and Montana date back 35 million years, long before humans existed. Fossils have also been found in Germany and in Yugoslavia. The rose apparently originated in Central Asia about 60 to 70 million years ago, during the Eocene epoch, and spread over the entire Northern Hemisphere. About 500 B.C. The oldest rose identified today is Rosa gallica, also known as the French rose, which once bloomed wild throughout central and southern Europe and western Asia, and still survives there.

rose hip : my September blur.... With four children starting school (yes, my littlest one is in full-time kindergarten and I miss her so -- that'll be for another post altogether...), two Farmers Market dates one week apart selling my wares (what was I thinking?!...), four children starting soccer season on four different teams (that's a first for us!...), dealing with our usual house renovation/decoration issues (oh yeah, did I mention we've been in renovation mode for the last 5 years), let's just say, September's been, well....a blur. However, I did promise a few of you to post the pattern I used to crochet these flowers, and a promise is a promise, as my kids keep telling me! I know that you would have probably been able to crochet an entire afghan in the time that has elapsed since asking me for the pattern, but, oh well, here goes: Crochet Flower Pattern as Adapted from the Many Vintage Crochet Books I Can't Help Myself from Buying Every Time I Go into a Thrift Shop... 1st round Ch1, work 15sc into circle.

Sarah's Sweethearts: crochet We went to an Old Fashioned downtown Christmas Festival this past weekend. It was wonderful! Here are some pretties from our night out. These were window displays in the old store fronts. I just adore the sleigh above! (top photo) It was life size! I believe this Santa is Antique since he was prominently displayed in an antique store window. Many snow globes, Miss A loved them, so many happy tiny worlds to provide endless day dream material.:) These trees were from The Festival of Trees. Wonderful causes too! Of course Miss A loved the pink and purple Christmas Trees. ...the evening could not be complete without the favored Carousel. I believe they are running a sale right now too. I actually worked mine a little short and the pattern calls for Paton's lace which has these gorgeous tiny sequins in it. Happy Sunday and have a beautiful week!

December 2010 ..........knitted bunting 2010...... (Well, actually I only started crocheting in July so technically it's only half a year in review, but anyhoo......) In the spirit of reflection that comes over me at this time of year, I though I would have a look at the projects that came and went in this exciting 'year of the hook', so I trawled back through my photos (I must get some sort of filing system happening in 2011) and found most of the crochet I managed to hook in 2010. I was going to put them in order from earliest to most recent, but I mucked up the uploading, so they are in no particular order..... soooo...... without further ado, I present "My Crochet 1/2 year!!!!" pictures.....or "Things I Made or Nearly Finished"...... .....The Pippi scarf (finished)...... ......Flower mobile in the making, and finished.......... ......Flower garland hangy thingy finished, and lots of these flowers.... ......Hexie grannys for a new rug, unfinished........ .......bibs......

Granny’s Border – in Progress | alottastitches After much consideration of yarn colors and amounts, I finally started working on the granny’s border! The darker aqua squares which frame the blanket are slighter larger than the inner squares of light aqua, because the darker aqua yarn is of a slightly heavier weight. With the help of some experimentation, I decided to skip one stitch out of every four or five stitches in the blanket’s edge as I crocheted the first round of its border. I made it a plain double-crochet round of the same darker aqua yarn, hoping this would make my irregularly spaced stitches less noticeable. I began the first teal round by working three double-crochet stitches (a familiar granny cluster) into one stitch of the dark aqua, skipping the next two stitches, then repeating those two steps the rest of the way around. The second teal round is even more familiar, working a granny cluster in each open space, just like in a granny square. Like this: Like Loading...

Tuto crochet # 6 : le chrysanthème japonais en super kid mohair Selon le fil utilisé, le résultat est complètement différent. Mes premiers essais ont été faits en Super Kid Mohair. J'ai également testé le Mohair, le Kid Mohair, le coton et le mélange laine/acrylique. Les plus beaux résultats on été obtenus avec la Super Kid Mohair. Pour ce tuto j'ai utilisé un fil non poilu pour que les points soient bien visibles. N'hésitez pas à cliquer sur les photos pour les agrandir. Fleur en Super Kid Mohair "Chrysanthème japonais" Le nom a été trouvé par la souris à plumes Désolée pour le pansement, j'ai été sauvagement attaquée par le couteau à pain ! Enrouler le fil autour de l’index. Passer le crochet sous la boucle qui se trouve sur l’index pour attraper le fil de derrière (celui qui va à la pelote). Faire 8 mailles serrées (ms) comme ci-dessus. Piquer le crochet dans la première maille serrée (celle que j'ai déformé à gauche). Tirer un petit peu sur le fil libre pour resserrer un peu le coeur de la fleur. Faire 5 mailles en l'air. Faire 2 mailles en l'air.
