Something fresh from the hook !!!!

While in a bookstore, a couple of days ago, I found 4 (!!!!) books about crochet/knitting that came  home with me....what a happy day!!!!
From one of them...


(for the English version, you can have a look right HERE !)

.... I decided to try a few blocks, like...



and this one, too, ....




I didn't enjoy crocheting the clover , just because it required a lot of attention from me !!!!!
Not my kind of crochet !!!
The "granny dalia", instead, was a real pleasure!!! Granny always are !!!!

The flowery one, once completed, made me happy! Have a look...



I think I can enjoy it more without the last round/border, don't you think the same?

In my previous post, I showed you some safety pins....well, I bought some cotton yarn, too, the other day...


....so, safety pins+cotton=....




.... and.....



The first one is made with fringes (love them! Remember these ???), while the second one has some crocheted chains!!!!

  7. Such beautiful bright colours. It occurred to me reading this that the colours we love truly reflect the climate we're bred and live in ... not a new idea I know but this post really brought it home to me :)

  9. Popped in for Creative Friday, but can't find your Friday post, tried to find the button for older posts, but can't find it either? Squares are always nice, but I don't enjoy working with cotton, bothers my hands.

  14. Hi Ale,

    You've been busy once again.
    Nice going.

    What you did with the pins, I DO have to remember for later. So pretty!

    Was the book in Italian? And can you read the language?
