Good morning !
How’s your morning? Are you enjoying like myself the first days of summer with the birds singing outside and the sun shining high? Mmmmh it feels so great when the weather is good…
So today, as promised, I’ll show you some crochet goodies I brought with me from Istanbul and two new projects I started when I got home …
First, there is some colorful crochet hooks I could not resist buying as I can not find any here in Beirut… I paid 1T.L (Turkish Lira) for each hook…that makes 0.38 british pound (or 0.6 USD)
some cute little buttons…
and of course yarn the best yarn I ever touched in my whole life… soooooo soft and with bright colors
It is called Nako baby …It is a mixture of 50%acrylic and 50%polyamid…I think this polyamid thing is what makes it soooo soft …and a pure pleasure to work with …
As for the price it is really cheap as I bought one (100gr) for 2.5 T.L (Turkish lira) that makes 0.95 British pound (or 1.5 USD) for one ball of 100g! Can you believe it ???
So, as you already guessed, I started something with this new yarn…a blanket
a stripy colorful baby blanket…one color for each row…all with treble…
but as you can see in the pic above, I am working the trebles in the back of every stitch…(inserting the hook not in all the stitch but in the back side of the stitch only) that makes it looks like this and I love how the lines are appearing…did you notice ?
and this is my second wip…
a granny square??? pffffffffffff
No, no, no, not any granny square
These are the first 6 rounds of a giant granny square…a real G I A N T one….with like 100 rounds !!!
So, who wants to join me in this great adventure and make your proper giant granny??? It will be a great challenge to make a really big one with all the leftover yarns you have …and it will become a beautiful loved blanket I am sure!!
Ooooh I am so thrilled with this project Join me join me join me !!! pleaaaaaaaaaaase!!
Have to go now my friend!
