What in the world??...or I'm crocheting now

Whew! I almost missed today's post! It seems I'm so busy and yet I don't have much to show for it, knitting-wise. It's because I have those top-secret projects, and I can't talk about them until a certain time. So, even though I'm knitting my fingers off, you all can't see any proof of that. Just be patient with me. The proof will be in the pudding, come Christmas time. :)

I know I promised some Malabrigo fun for this week's post, but I haven't been able to photograph them yet. I will do that for the next post, hopefully (unless something more exciting comes along. But I don't know what could top Malabrigo!)

For today's post, I'm going to share something different I've been working on for months now. It's crochet. I'm sure you are thinking "What in the world? But this is a knitting blog". I know, I know. The two crafts though can be complimentary, and a friend needed these for a project she's working on, so I thought I'd give it a try. I went on YouTube to learn how to crochet properly, learned how to read crochet patterns and diagrams, and read the patterns to make these samples. It was hard!! But I think the end product is beautiful. Plus, I got to work with Cascade Ultra Pima, which is absolutely fantastic! The sheen of that yarn is indescribable. Anyway, enjoy this new installment, and I'll see you all next week.









Have a wonderful week everyone!

  1. I love these! A few of the green pieces will be great enlarged and used as patterns for shawls.

    So many great ideas, so little time.

    I also need to work on my pattern reading. I bought a book once but it was too complicated and I never took the time to master it.

    I should look online for some resources.
