beautiful things:crochet grapes

Few weeks ago I have ordered books from amazon. *Yay*! They are here.

100 flowers to knit and crochet by Lesley Stanfield.And:

I was so absorbed in them when I could finally open the box after 2 days; my son decided that he should hide them from me under the chair!

I have started from 100 flowers to knit and crochet. And I did this:

Then I have come up with an idea and did this:

 I am planning this to be a knitted squares blanket: I have not checked my yarn colours yet but I think I will use beige ,purple and green.

I’ll go and check my yarn colours now.I hope I got  purple  colour too that day from the sale! So see you later!

queen anne lace scarf-2

Posted in crochet, knitting at 11:00 pm by edascrochetroom

I couldn’t decide on which buttons to use and I think I will get new buttons after the holidays because no button in my button box seems to be the right one.

 And I have started a new blanket project. The pattern is ‘summer garden blanket’ pattern from Lucy at attic24.

And finally a ‘buttons’ photo…

Finally I could manage to connect to the world! We are having 9 days holidays and  it turns out to be that my mobile modem is not functioning anymore! I had to go and buy a new modem but it will not start working till the holidays are over so I came to my parents’ place to borrow their modem.They are somewhere in Italy now so I think they wouldn’t mind.

I have stayed 4 days at home so far.Days filled with changing pampers, vacuuming and moping the house,cooking and lots of free time. As a result I have finished my Queen Anne lace scarf and couple of other projects are almost done.

Yay! I am so excited! Today while the baby was taking his afternoon nap I was able  take as many pictures I could.

And I am making one for my sister too.

I have almost finished my baby son’s cardigan….

I have finally finished my knitted baby blanket.

It makes me happy to see that my baby son enjoys what I make…

And I have finished the toddler vest

I did not follow any pattern for this vest: I Just did it.

Now I have started something for myself.A scarf:

I hope winter comes so that I can wear it!

Tried a recipe from a magazine which turned out to be delicious:

My version:

And most important of all; I have finished two knitting projects.One I couldn’t photograph yet but I could photograph the toddler cardigan.

granny square blanket finished!

Posted in crochet, knitting at 12:03 pm by edascrochetroom


It took me longer than anticipated to finish this one but better late than never….

The colours are so vibrant; whoever sees it likes it!

The yarn I used is 100% acrylic so I had my doubts at the beginning but it turned out to be easy and enjoyable to work with.

I am contemplating a ” shades of blue” version for my baby son but it will have to wait till I finish this cardigan I started as soon as I finished the baby blanket.

The yarn I am using is 50% acrylic and 50% cotton,I bought on sales. One ball was like for 1 Turkish Lira equivalent to approximately 0,50Euro.

Since it was my first yarn sales , I got a bit carried away while shopping;

It is the same yarn I use for my ” flowers on the snow” blanket ( one tiny miny problem; I cannot find the white coloured yarn anymore; I wonder if I ever will be able to finish that blanket!) so I use this as an excuse for buying too much of that  yarn:)

That’s all from me now,hope to be with you soon! XXX

I am knitting a baby blanket. This will be the first knitting project that I have done which will not recquire my mother’s correction.

The pattern is from The Purl Bee ( do not know how to add the addresses here yet so I have written it down)

I am not very fond of knitting but since I have started crocheting, I started simple knitting projects as well.

I have almost finished the blanket ; I just need to knit the edging and sew it .

I have yet started another knitting project; it will be a sweater( or maybe a cardigan;haven’t decided yet) for the Little One.

I have chosen from the yarns I had at home.The grey coloured is acrylic and the yellow coloured is 50% acrylic and 50% cotton.

I hope to finish it within a week.We will see. But soon I will be here with another ta-daaa! moment. See you then!
