Grannies tadaaaaaaaaa

Morning beautiful people!

I’ve finished my granny squares blanket and I am very proud to show it to you today πŸ™‚

Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyy πŸ˜‰






Here are some technical infos for you between the pics:

* Yarn: Mirage (a 100% acrylic yarn). I don’t know exactly how much yarn I used because I used mostly scraps and 3 balls of 100g of white. I think it is a total of 10 balls of 100g each or maybe a little bit less…

* Hook: 3.5mm

* Square: AΒ 6 rounds (the last one in white) traditional granny square. You can find its graphic HERE!

* Joining: I joined my squares with the last white round as-I-go. You can find more about this joining method in Lucy’s wonderful blog HERE!

* Dimensions: Appr. 240×100 cm with a total of 128 squares

* Edging: Clusters ofΒ 3dc (as for the square) but with a picot between the clusters instead of 1 chain. (To make the picots, I crochet 3chain and then 1 sc in the first chain). I love this simple edging and keep using it πŸ™‚






This blanket is making me very happy. It transformed our room making it fresher and warmer at the same time πŸ™‚ I love that every time I enter our room I have a smile on my face πŸ™‚

Crochet, my dear friend, is magical πŸ™‚

I hope that you enjoyed these 10 pics of my latest blanket …

Sending you all my love through this post!

Take care

yaaaayyy for ponchos :)))

Today is a double tadaaa post dedicated for ponchos πŸ™‚

The girls ponchos are done and they are looking gorgeous wearing them today πŸ™‚


I enjoyed every single stitch crocheted… They are very very easy to make…

Using a soft acrylic yarn called baby nako and a 3.5mm hook …


I made a super simple edging with picots as a last round: Β 3dc…3chain+1sc in the first chain …3dc etc etc

I love picots… and I think that they are very cute as edgings πŸ˜‰


Here are the ponchos done and already in good use πŸ˜‰



The girls are in love with their ponchos and I am very very happy that they love them that much πŸ™‚ proud mama πŸ˜‰


You can make your own poncho following this pattern right here πŸ™‚

It is very simple to make and you’ll enjoy crocheting it πŸ™‚


Leaving you with a last pic of my Sarah who lost her first tooth last week πŸ™‚

Have a super day my friend

and happy crocheting!

My poncho

It is done! YAAAAAAAAAAAAY! It was done last week but could’t share it because the children ( all 3 ) were sick at home. Today the girls feel better and are back to school. Baby Joe is still at home but he is feeling muchΒ better too πŸ™‚ So, today, life is good again and I thought about sharing with you my poncho πŸ™‚

You know that I don’t like to see myself in pics so this is me without the head πŸ™‚


I think I will not wear it outside the house… It will be a kind of “wearable blanket” that keeps me warm while I moveΒ around πŸ™‚

Hubby is jealous πŸ˜‰


It was crocheted with a 100% acrylic yarn called Nako Vizon. It is very similar to the Stylecraft DK but a little little bit thicker. The hook used is a 4.5 mm one.


A white background would be better for this pic I know…

The squares of this poncho were joined as-I-g0. I did the front and the back separately and sew them together at the end. You can find the chart of the squares on the right sidebar of my blog under the name : circle in a square. (I don’t know why I can not make a proper link here πŸ™‚ Sometimes I just don’t understand this computer πŸ™‚


Some close up pics πŸ™‚


with curious little hands πŸ™‚


I used the moss stitch to make the edging. (1sc-1ch-1sc etc etc ) and added some picots for the last round πŸ˜‰


Did I say that I am in love with my poncho? No not yet…


I am right now wearing it while writing this post πŸ™‚ and I want to make two more for the girls πŸ™‚ Maybe with a thinner yarn and without the black background of course … We’ll see πŸ˜‰

Until then stay warm (under a blanket or a poncho)

and have a beautiful sunshiny and colorful day!

I heart you!


Good morning sweeties!

Remember the secret project I told you about in my previous post…



It is this very cute heart shaped cushion πŸ™‚

Even though I don’t like the whole valentine thingy idea I love everything heart shaped and my home is filled with hearts πŸ™‚

So, I thought about adding this sweet cushion to my place πŸ™‚


I crocheted it with a chunky yarn and a 5mm hook and unraveled it twice before I could get the shape I was hoping for…


I love it and keep changing its place around the house πŸ™‚



I took some step by step pictures and I’m preparing right now a full pattern which will be for sale here in the blog for a symbolic price of 3USD.


So, my friend, if you’re interested in crocheting this heart for your valentine or to add a warm touch to your home, prepare some chunky yarn and the right hook for it and wait for me…

I won’t be long… I promise…

I’ll try to post the pattern asap πŸ˜‰

Love to all!

Happy happy happy :)


Good morning!

I am happy happy happy to show you today the happy blankie in all its glory πŸ™‚


It is finally finished and I love how it is right at home here πŸ™‚


Lots of reds, oranges and yellows to match the warm colors of my home …


I love it….looooove it and can’t wait for the cold days to snuggle under it. I think that we are all here waiting for thatΒ πŸ˜‰


I crocheted this blanket with a 4mm crochet hook and used my faithful Nako Vizon 100% acrylic yarn.Β (Β The Nako Vizon is very similar to the stylecraft special DK between.)


The pattern of each square is very classic and can be found here.


As for the joining: I joined the squares with a line of sc. I held each two squares together (back on back) and worked the sc in the back loop of the two facing stitches.


For the edging, when the blanket is very colorful like this one I prefer to have a simple edging: 3sc, 1sc-3ch-1sc, 3sc, 1sc-3ch-1sc, etc etc Or if you want it is: 3sc, 1 picot, 3sc, 1 picot πŸ˜‰

I love picots and I find them very beautiful on a blanket edge πŸ™‚


I am so in love with my happy blankie. It is made with 155 squares (11×14) and I think that it will be cherished for many years to come …


Have to go now… A lot of wips are waiting for me…


A lot of work in my place too… A lot of everyday family chores but this blog is always in my heart and you too…


So, my sweeties, I hope to be back to you very soon…


Until then, take good care of yourself, stay warm (under a blanket or two πŸ˜‰ ) and have always sunshine in your heart…

Love and kisses
