Graphic Backpack

Hi peeps, yes – I am still here; it has been crazy in our household since my last post.

So apologies for not posting lately but I will endavour to come back more frequently now.

Thanks for sticking around.

So, to start off my “comeback” I will show you one of my crochet projects I completed not so long ago. It is one that can drive you “bananas” as there is a colour change every 4th stitch or so. I found the free pattern on the Paintbox Yarn website and fell in love.

Most of the time I buy my yarn on LoveCrochet and at the time there were a few specials on the Paintbox yarn. So I sat down and figured out what I needed. Once the stash

arrived I could begin:

Material used:

Skill Level as per pattern is said to be Intermediate but I think if you are comfortable with the colour changes it should be easier.

It is a great project because it is so different from other bags or blankets.

I can offer a photo while I was in the middle of the work and of course a finished result:

I loved making it.

Crochet project / blanket

This is my newest finished project which actually didnt take too long to make.

It is either a  quick pattern or I am getting much better at it 🙂

I found this project in the Crochet! Magazine April 2017 issue.

The throw is a design by Margaret Willson

Here are the materials I used:

which I purchased at Love Crochet

  • and a 5.0mm hook

I am very happy with the result.

Crochet

And finally, here is another crochet post – I have been pretty busy lately.

While I was waiting at the Doctors late in February I started a project where I just wanted to test a pattern. An easy one – but I didn’t quite know what it might look like.

At the time the Doctor decided to book me in for a day procedure just as precaution. That happened early this month and again I knew that there was some waiting involved so I took it again. And here is the result which is a small blanket and I have no idea yet what to do with as we do not have any babies in the immediate family. I was thinking of donating it but who knows. I did lose track of the edges a little at the end so it has increased slightly 🙂 but here is the end result:

I had fun making it as there was no difficulty involved. And by using my left-over yarn I do not feel so bad when the stash gets slightly bigger 🙂
