crocheting projects

Oh how I love all the new projects I see on Pinterest – the only problem I have is, that I shouldn’t take any looks on social media while I’m working on a project already.
It’s like right now, I’m crocheting one hat for myself and am also starting to knit a new baby blanket. While doing these I already built up wishes and images of another even bigger blanket in knitting version. Usually I prefer crocheting, but I just started to knit this one and I like it!
I also like to sew some small and big projects for the kids and for our dog and am still learning new skills.

Right now I’m knitting a simple baby blanket with blocks and different colours. I knit the blocks first and later I will sew them together to finish this beautiful project. There are several stitches I learned and love and as mentioned before I always think about new projects while working on my current ones. I need to finish this baby blanket now, because 2 cousins gave birth to 3 babies this year and I finished 2 blankets already (boy and girl) and still need a girl blanket for the 3rd baby.
After this I already made this new project in my mind, a big blanket, I’m not sure about the colours, the size, the pattern, but I have a hint of it, the colours will be nature tone (orange, brown, etc.) and I’m thinking about the moroccan stitch, or an CAL (crochet along).

To all of you crocheters/knitters with small kids, do you also experience this phenomenon that as soon as you pick up your hook or needles your kids cling to you like a bubblegum?
I love my kids, and I love to spent time with them and be around them, listen to their stories their days – but it’s really interesting, that every time I pick up my hook at least one is trying to sit on my lap to interrupt my work – with no bad intention of course.

And with my knitting skills, well lets say I’m a beginner and really try to take care to perfectly count and not lose a line.
How can I say, I really love all the yarn projects I did so far and am looking forward to all the projects to come.
It’s funny, because back in 2017 I thought and started to plan this blog and use some other social platforms to start selling my selfmade baby blankets.
I don’t know if this road is my path or not, if this blog is my path or not. I don’t know if I already found the perfect niche and so on.

Will see in the near future I guess 😉 until then I’ll share my thoughts with you. Be richly blessed!

End of 2017

Dear readers,
While it’s running fast to the end of 2017 I’m still planning and organizing the left over days. What to crochet, what to write, what to do in general. So next thing will be grocery shopping because Sunday and Monday will be completely closed (except on Airport and Train station – but with a higher price for all essential things to buy).

While I was busy yesterday with the kids meeting friends at a child-playground (indoor) because it’s too rainy and windy, we stayed at this place for about 6 hours. The kids were happy and exhausted afterwards and showed so great caring and love for another. We’ve met a friend with 3 other kids age range 8-12 and this was a great big group and fun for all. The indoor playground was not too crowded but full with kids of all age and so this was a fun thing for us all. And me? I took my bag with yarn and my nearly finished baby blanket to keep crocheting even while I’m away. So I’m really busy lately, because the yarn is fine and thin and this means the blanket takes some more time to finish. At the end it should be a baby blanket receiving size of 36″ x 36″ (90 x 90cm) ready for my first sale.
So I try and set a final date to finish 2 baby receiving blankets by next Wednesday.


And by next week I will do my next order on new highly good yarn especially for baby blankets. Stay interested there will be more!

New Blanket Project

It is a beautiful thursday, the weather is well, not as good as could be, but hey it is a gift from God, and it is not raining! I was using time outside with the kids and the dog, walking and stopping at several playgrounds. Yesterday I started a new baby blanket project, I found a beautiful and easy pattern on Pinterest called Baby Afghan Crochet.
I still had some leftovers back from last years order, when I purchased a whole box from one of my favorite yarn online store Lanade when they still had the yarn DROPS #5.
So now I started this cute baby afghan for? Well who knows, there is one friend expecting not long to go, maybe her? Or I will simply keep it, like always (I love blankets), maybe I will start to sell them and open a small baby blanket/afghan online shop – just for fun.
