Textured crochet - 5 from Made To Treasure

I was caught by the textured crochet bug during the start of this year..
When i got some beautiful yarns by Alize Gold, 
i decided to try and explore more of crochet...

So I'm back again with a textured crochet post...

This time i used those variegated yarn to try basketweave crochet stitch...

wow...i loved the beautiful texture of the basketweave ....

 I'm sure the Alize cotton gold batik yarn also played an important role,
 in bringing up the beauty of the stitch...

I didn't refer to any particular pattern, 
even though many beautiful patterns and works ...

I LOVE THIS YARN! from CollectInTexas Gal

I do love THIS yarn...especially for a new accessory design I'm working on that a softer yarn seems to work!  Although it is a 4ply acrylic yarn, it  feels, knits and crochets more like a merino-bamboo blend...with better body.

 As you can probably guess, I have a yarn stash that can only be described as an accumulation beyond life expectancy.  Still...I did not have all the colors in THIS yarn needed for my new design line of knitted and crocheted wearables.
Yes, I said both knitted and crocheted.

You know of course, I am ...

Scrapbuster Sunday – Scrap Rugs! from Heart Desire Creations

Scrap Crochet Rug (Large)

My great scrap adventure continues. Actually, it’s more like a great video game that I think I am losing! A huge amount of scraps went into this project (I first posted about this project here) and it was fun and easy. A scrap crocheted rug! I cut strips of scraps, 1 1/2″ wide, choosing my longest scraps. I then chain pieced them together. I did several batches. I have seen that some press the strips in half – hah! Not going to happen. Some roll the “fabric yarn” into a ball. Double Hah! Not going to happen. By making ...

Back to Blocking, Bags, Broaches and Booth from CollectInTexas Gal

You would think the last thing I'd be doing in the 'Dog Days of Summer' with temps at 103 degrees, is sitting with a lap full of knitting and crochet.  Nevertheless, it's happening and it's about that time!

Yep, time for the season opening of my 'Fall Chicken Farm Art Center Booth' on 'First Saturday, September 3rd'.  I'll be raising the Pink Tent and setting up for only the second time this year.  Seems like March was ages ago.

Anyway, here's a preview of what's on the blocking table, what's been in my ...

Early Friday morning, we sat on the porch, third coffees on the table between us, me with my crochet, Julian with his moleskin, and we brainstormed all the things we’d love to achieve around the farm over the weekend.  Then we marked off the most important seven for Friday and set to work.  It was mostly a day of orchard planting.  The raspberry patch was finished off – 5 metres long by 2 metres wide, thoroughly dug over with old duck bedding, liberally seasoned with the neighbour’s horse poo, edged with timber and secured with a nice deep row ...

Single Colour Granny Square Crochet Squares from Samelia's Mum

The other week, I was inspired to start a new crochet project. Attic 24 was the source of my inspiration. Honestly, Lucy's blog is just the perfect place to visit for crochet inspiration. Her projects and photographs are always super bright and happy and as a newbie to this world of yarn and crochet, I've found her posts to be a wonderful place to learn. Quick, go check out her blog. You won't be disappointed. 

So my new project is perfect for using up left over yarn. Bits of yarn, a 4.5mm hook (I think the ...

I Shall Crochet Sea Shells... from CollectInTexas Gal

...Oh, how I wish it was by the Sea Shore!

The best I can hope for here in West Texas is by the rocks and docks at Lake Nasworthy!   Not happening here in the middle of hot July!  It's hot enough sitting in my air conditioned nest with a lap full of yarn.  Not complaining, mind you...just sayin'.

Truth be told, for the last three months my 'Nest' has been a Yarning Shawl-A-Rama!  This Sea Shell Wrap is #6 to come off of my zippity-do-da J crochet hook.  Just started this in gray and black this evening.  These ...

Different projects from Susan P Blog

I decided to take stock of the projects I am working on. This is similar to reading – I am always reading about five books at a time, because I like reading what I feel like at that moment. Same with needlework, it is much more fun to be able to pick and choose what I feel like. But when I am close to finishing a project I am normally quite keen to get it done.

Yesterday I made two bags. I have a friend who is always knitting for everyone. I can’t remember her ever knitting something for herself ...

So Much For Keeping It Simple from CollectInTexas Gal

The hardest thing about an 'Ending' is knowing where to 'Start'.  That's where I am now that I don't have a work schedule to follow.  It's where I am when I walk into my studio where I have organized and re-stocked my stashes of fabric, yarn, notions, lace, trims, buttons and all of the frenzied liquidation shopping stuff.

So much for my 'Stash Busting' proclamations of Use It or Lose, Sue...and just when I was making headway in that regard.  So much for the '4R's Bucket List' know the one where last year I ...

Baby It's Cold Outside! from Alsha's Space

Just dropping by to let you know that we shall now have until next Sunday, and then we will be back to normal and the word photo will be "black".

Primavera flowers ...... from Made To Treasure

I sometimes get attracted to a project when someone do it in their lovely choice of colors...
Ninu's choice of colors always attracts me...
thats how i went to Dada's place to look out for the pattern..

That place was nothing different....i felt like I'm in a beautiful garden of lovely flowers.

I immediately wanted to start that project...but didn't have the exact colors that i loved...
and decided to start with what ever i have...

...and this is my garden of Primavera flowers...

I crochet it into a 53" x 38 " throw ...
