V stitch

Turkey 2014

We’ve had a wonderfully sunshiny beautiful week in Turkey (Letoonia club – Fethiyeh). Enjoying the sun, the beach, the sand in our toes ๐Ÿ™‚

We’ve really needed this one week vacation away from everything to recharge our batteries (mine was really really empty ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Now I am back home, happy, calm, batteries fully charged ๐Ÿ™‚ I love my home and I love going back to my crochet wips too. One week without holding a hook that was veryyyyyy long ๐Ÿ™‚

Sending you sunshine, colors, and lots of kisses!

Something new on my hook ;)

Hello lovelies,

How are you? Woooow we are July1 already…time flies… 2014 is half gone and I am half done with my Crochet Mood Blanket 2014.

1

Here it is from January1 (up-left light purple) till June30 (down-right blue turquoise)ย ๐Ÿ˜€ Wooow! I am really happy to be up to date with it ๐Ÿ™‚ It makes me proud, happy and makes my heart sing with joy.

2

See? Not so many dark and grey days! Hope that the second half will be as happy as this first ๐Ÿ™‚

2'

I am pleased with it even though it will be BIG very BIG . The first half is 120 x 145 cm. So the final blanket will be 145 x 240 cm ๐Ÿ˜€

And I started also something new…

3

ย Well, I am unravelling an wip and crocheting a new one… Remember my Vintage Stripy Blanket? Well, I decided to unravel it because I was not pleased with its sides …they were not straight and it was bothering me … A LOT… So, I decided to unravel it and with every row unravelled crochet a row in a new Vintage-V-blanket ๐Ÿ™‚

4

I love the colors. That’s why I am keeping them as they are…unravelling from here…crocheting there ๐Ÿ™‚

6

And I am falling madly deeply in loveย with this V-stitch blanket ๐Ÿ™‚ It is addictive…and once you start you can not leave your hook anymore ๐Ÿ˜‰

5

I drew a small chart to show you how I am working on it. You can find onlineย if you google: Crochet V stitch many patterns, charts and videos too…but here is my own “version” with less “holes” ๐Ÿ™‚ and I am really pleased with it.

7

I am working this blanket with a 4.5mm hook and a yarn similar to the Stylecraft special DK but a little thicker. It is called Nako Vizon. A 100% acrylic yarn ๐Ÿ™‚

If you have time and are wondering what to crochet, I really advise you to try the V-stitch. It is totally addictive easy and fast to crochet ๐Ÿ™‚ You’ll be totally hooked ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a super day!
