Blanket Ta-dah!

Posted in crochet at 2:51 pm by edascrochetroom

I just checked my older  posts and realized that it took me almost 3 months to finish this blanket.

I was close to finishing for sooooo long, that I craved to see it finished but it didn’t.( I find very little time to crochet and now our working hours has changed ;I do not know when I will finish my elder son’s blanket I started few days earlier  this time.)

But first I have to apologize for the quality of the photos; I took them with my mobile; could’n wait to show you my latest work.

So,here it is: Ta-dah!

I did a simple picot edge to finish.

And the owner of the blanket with his blanket…

Today is a happy day!

I hope you all have a lovely day too…

it is springtime!

Hello Lovely People!

I am very happy to announce that spring is here!

When we were  kids my dad used to tell us that if the almond trees start to blossom,it means spring is coming.

Ok,this is not almond tree blossom, but we do not have an almond tree in our garden. I think this is a peach tree blossom; I am not sure though.

And citrus tree blossom:

closer look:

The field opposite my parent’s house looks like this:

While my Little Man enjoyed this

I enjoyed my mother’S garden

On Sunday we were not that lucky though. I could only take these photos.

I hope you all have a lovely day!

new project ideas

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:18 pm by edascrochetroom


Today,we are having one of the last winter days.

It is rainy and cold. But I LOVE winter and rain because we will not see such a scene  for the coming 9 months…

When the weather is rainy, I feel like crocheting and never get tired of it.

So today,I tried The Circle of Friends Square pattern.

A hexagon pattern.

I will write the details of these patterns later because I need to go and pick up my Little One from kindergarten now.

See you soon !

New project ideas

Posted in crochet at 8:46 am by edascrochetroom


I am still searching the ‘ perfect pattern’ for my new project. Yesterday I tried two patterns:

This pattern is from They have lovely – gorgeous-wonderful-fantastic! patterns; both knit and crochet.

I did a change in the last row in this pattern though. Now instead of one  project idea , I have two perfect project ideas!!!!

This pattern is from ‘rosehip’. Such a wonderful pattern; I got carried away and already made six of them!

And as I have mentioned red carnations in my last post,I have received some for the ‘International women’s day’ yesterday.

I hope you all have a nice day!

pink monday; carnations

Posted in crochet at 10:57 am by edascrochetroom

Honestly; I never liked carnations. They were everywhere! Especially the red ones….Until there was this episode of SATC where SJP- Carrie- ‘s boyfriend Berger breaks up with her and there were pink carnations. There they were !

After that episode I started paying attention to pink carnations and I now think that they are beatiful.


I am very close to finishing my current blanket project and I have started looking for a future project idea. Last night I tried this pattern I have found on the internet from a Japanese Craft Book.

I haven’t decided yet.I am still searching for the perfect pattern and perfect project.

I hope you all have a lovely week.
