‘So what’s been on on the crochet front…‘, You ask? ‘A couple of things…‘, I say. Some finished projects and some still crawling on… definitely, a lot of new lessons learnt… some from mistakes and some not.
I finished my longest ever project this year. A shawl and matching booties for my new little nephew.
A gift box for a boy
I made more booties. They are a total flop idea! Lil’ One kicks them off in less than one minute. No, all that lace doesn’t help. The pattern is my own nd I am too ashamed to share something that didn’t work.
All that hard work..*sigh*
Son wanted a cap.. ‘a blue cap’… I had seen this fabulous pattern I just so wanted to try… more than half way through, son remarks that he didn’t mean that ‘blue’. Anyway, I had to finish it and so I did. It didn’t fit anyone but our Lil’ One and so, she has a big blue slouchie waiting for her to grow up and wear it. I am in love with the pattern and I just love how it turned out to look like knitting. Pattern Page1 and pattern page 2.
The Blue Slouchie
Another cap… the real ‘blue’ one with a pattern to die for. This is just one of those patterns and yarn that I cannot stop but love love. It is not knitting… it is front and back crochet. The pattern is from here and I must remark that she is a genius!

Please Note: THIS PATTERN REQUIRES ADVANCE CROCHET SKILLS. Please, do not attempt if you are still a beginner or intermediate level crocheter. It can be very frustrating to figure out the diagram. The Pattern and site are in Russian but there is a diagram which is quite clear.
