Happy and proud of myself!!!!

HAPPY because I can continue (after a long summer break!) to crochet my colourful blanket ....





...if you are new around here, maybe you'll be interested to know more about this blanket (herehereherehere and here !) and the pattern I'm following !!!! Be curious and have fun!!!!

PROUD because of a silly thing!!!
Yesterday I was browsing (not only yesterday, anyway!!!!) on Pinterest and I decided to find a nice pattern to crochet a shawl and BAM! I found it!!! Look HERE !!!!

I love everything about it : the simplicity, the colours, the tassels, the size of the solid triangles, the pattern....oh well, the pattern is written in Danish....!!!!!!
This fact didn't stop me!!! This morning, infact, I went on internet and on Google I tried to find the translation for Danish crochet terms....but I did not have such luck in finding something useful!
So, I went back to the original pattern and with the help of some zooming in the pictures and keeping the numbers written in the pattern as a kind of guidance I ......DID IT !!!!!!!

This is the crocheted proof :








I've used a 5,5mm hook and my Indonesian acrylic yarn (always good for testing!) and the sides of the triangle measures about 29cm, while from the base to the vertex the size is 25cm !

.....so, I'm pretty ready for starting my shawl now (right now?)....
I have the yarn and all that I need....


....NOTHING (and NO ONE!!!) can stop me !!!!! YEAH!!!!! ;oD

  2. Go Ale, the pattern is gorgeous, look forward to seeing your progess on it. Your blanket is coming along beautifully as well, so bright and cheery.
    Maybe next time you could copy and paste the instructions and put them into Google translate......but then again you might come out with something completely different, hehe......

  14. I follow your blog and love it! You do such great, colorful crochet.

    But, I wonder if you have ever tried this technique to hide your beginning stitch in each round. http://speckless.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/bridging-a-gap-when-you-join-rounds/
    This is not my blog but just a helpful way to hide that chain at the beginning of the rows or rounds.

    Keep up the great work, I love following your blog

  18. Aha!
    Here it comes again.
    The blanket that looks so gorgeous and that I was going to make (inspired by you).

    All I can do is sigh and wish I had more time.

    It really is one of the nicest blankets I have ever seen (honestly)

    Your shawl will also be gorgeous, I can tell you that already.

    Wish I had your skills.
