They are all done, but the first one still need some blocking ….. !!!!
The DIANTHUS HEXAGON
This motif (#52) is taken from the book 75 Floral Blocks to Crochet by Betty Barnden and I started one a couple of months ago, just for fun ….
… and little by little ( a lot of threads to cut and trim in for each hexagon!) it became bigger and bigger, with my obvious great satisfaction….
…. but, after crocheting 25 motifs I said : ENOUGH !!!! So, right now, I'm a proud owner of a new table centrepiece and I think it will be nice on my vintage wooden table (now in storage!) …
I didn't block it yet, so the actual dimensions are : 105cmx62cm
I used a 4mm hook and some yarn balls from my stash : Sirdar Wash'n'Wear in light grey, black, red, pink, white and turquoise!
LONG OVAL WRIST WARMERS
I really love to play with colours and shapes and I like to keep things simple, so I made these quick wrist warmers (my own pattern!) …
They look so nice on, don't you think the same???? ;oD
I was working with some leftovers of Moda Vera Marvel 8ply (hook : 4mm) and they took one afternoon to be made, even because the pieces are joined together as you go! The length of each wrist warmer is about 27cm.
I made a second pair a little more serious, but modern at the same time …
… As you can see, Matteo was really kind in helping me with the pictures … !!!! ;oD
