Now that I have finished the Sweet Haus Cal – Sunday Shawl I wanted tos hare with you what I have been crocheting.
I am finishing up the Demelza Blanket. I have not posted much on this as it is a Mother’s Day gift for my Mom and I know she follows my blog so no spoilers here. LOL!!
I am also working on the Hygge Shawl which is a CAL sponsored by Sheepjes. I oredered my kit from Wool Wherehouse and it came packed so nicely in this box.
You can see my work peeking through. This shawl has a lot of emboidery and is something I have not attempted before. Here is a better look at my work so far.
I love the vibrant colors and the different techniques. I am a week behind on this CAL as I have been preparing for the Annual Craft and Gab that my Mom and I attend each year with a group of wonderful ladies. We gab alot so I try not to take anything that gets to involeved so I don’t lose count of my stiches.
Our group rents out a wonderful bed and breakfast in the local mountains and enoy stitching, socializing and of course there is wine! We leave this Friday and will return on Sunday. I am looking forward to this little retreat.
The project I will be taking with me are – my Little Box of Crochet.
I was so excited when the box arrived that is was hard not to dive in right away. Look how cute these little mug cozies are. Of course there was a beautiful stitch marker and hand painted brooch in the box as well.
They really do a wonderful job with their boxes and it is truly exciting for me when the box arrives at my haus.
The other project I will be taking is my granny square sweater. The front and back are complete and the squares have been sewn together, but I am not happy with the sleeves. You may recall I posted about it here. I will open the sleeves and hopefully finish the sweater.
I am also working on this cat house for my sister’s cat Mila.
I was happy to meet Mila when I visited my sister in Germany last year. I know she will enoy hiding out in here. I have chosen a medium grey tshirt yarn which is crocheting up so soft.
I have one more project in the works and that is my very first graphaghan. This will be a blanket for my sister’s birthday – so again no photos – so as not to apoil the surprise for her. I promise to post photos of the Demelza and the graphaghan once the presents have been presented
Until next time – happy crafting!!
