...the crochet pattern for the flower squares is finally written out for you to try out...To those of you who have been waiting for it -- thanks for your patience! So, here goes: With the color of yarn you wish to use for the center of the flower, ch 4 and join with a sl st into the first ch to form a ring. Continue working in the round as follows: Round 1: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1) , * 1 dc into ring, ch 1 **; repeat from * to ** 6 times. Join with a sl st into 3rd ch of the ch-4 made at the beginning of this round. Round 2: Join the color you wish to use for the petals into any of the ch-1 spaces, ch 1 and * 1 sc, 3 dc, 1 sc ** into the same ch-1 space; repeat from * to ** into the next 7 ch-1 spaces. Round 3: Ch 1, and working behind the petals now, sl st into the stem † of the last sc made in round 2. ch = chain stitch; sc = single crochet stitch; dc = double crochet stitch; sl st = slip stitch.

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!

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...

craft blog : crochet I spent about an hour standing in the craft store Saturday staring at a wall of yarn in the coolest muted tones and edgy colors ... a palette I would have murdered for (with my bare hands) years ago. Seriously. I'm especially impressed with the acrylic selection. Vanna's Choice, Cotton Ease (which also has great labels), and Red Heart Soft are all being made in totally amazing colors. Back in the 90s when I was crocheting ALL THE TIME, there wasn't a lot to choose from if you were making $10 an hour in San Francisco and wanted muted, edgy colors. OK, there was *nothing* to choose from. There was one granny square blanket in particular that I made in variegated rainbow, bright purple, yellow, green, etc., that would make your eyes bleed. I did manage to make a tasteful blanket out of Red Heart for my little sister's wedding present. I even splurged on some Lion Brand Microspun for hats and scarves for Andrew and I when we first met. The picture doesn't really capture it's yumminess.

Tipsy Tessie: virkning Nu mina stackars få bloggläsare som troget följer mig, ska jag försöka ägna min avsomnade blogg lite mer tid och kärlek än vad jag gjort den senaste tiden. Jag rivstartar med att ge er ett mycket efterfrågat mönster på rutor med cirkel i mitten. Satt och pillade med detta mönster förra hösten efter att min bok blivit färdig och därför kom inte mönstret med i boken. Fylld ruta med cirkel i mitten Garn: Mandarin Petit Virknål: 3 mm. Gör 4 lm och slut dem till en ring med 1 sm. Varv 1: 3 lm, virka 12 st med nertag i ringen. Varv 2: 3 lm, [2 st i varje m], uppr [] v runt (24 m). Varv 3: 3 lm, [1 st, 2 st i nästa m], uppr [] v runt (36 m). Varv 4: 3 lm, [2 st, 2 st i nästa m], uppr [] v runt (48 m). Varv 5: 3 lm, [3 st, 2 st i nästa m], uppr [] v runt (60 m).
