Crochet baby blanket Little Rainbow - Voila!
Bella Dia's Vintage Stripe pattern, with some modification as I did multiple rows of every color. When doing that I always end every row with a treble in the top chain of the last treble stitch, chain 3 and then turn my work to start the next row by making my first treble in the first gap between the two first trebles. Make sense?
I start a new color by adding it halfway through my last treble... Well, when I have two loops on my hook, instead of just pulling through the yarn I add the new yarn to pull through. It makes for a neat color change.
Bunny Mummy's V-edging. The difference is that she is doing it on a granny stripe base and I have done it on a double crochet base. I had 2 double crochet stitches in between my V-stitches and maybe it would have been better to have 3 stitches in between the V-stitches on the long edges... Then it wouldn't have crumbled at all I guess.
Creative Cotton from Rico that I once bought at my local craft store a long time ago.
Only when surfing for more Creative Cotton from Rico, in case I was going to run out, I found out that this is the "famous" cotton that Lucy in the Attic24 uses... I was surprised to see how companies uses her name as reference to sell this product and I just hope she is getting some free bees out of this as she obviously has brought so much business that they simply sell out all the time. If you read this Lucy, you should put your foot down about this if they haven't really asked to use your name for this purpose, that is my own opinion. LOL :D.
Come Walk With Me real soon. I have kinda slipped off the wagon a bit during Easter but after I have cleaned the house and put every one back in their own bedrooms (you know how it is with family visits - you have to re-organize sleeping arrangements and a house full of people really needs a bit of a BIG clean when everything goes back to normal. ). So how has your week been? Any sewing or crocheting to share? See you soon. The cleaning house bucket is calling!
