THIS WILL NEVER GET OLD

So I am working on RR exclusively and neglecting his siblings this needs to stop.  It is going to be hard but I need to :-)

Well he grows so fast and I am addicted to him, no excuse I know but still…

I am posting about the CAL this week,  we are on the home stretch. I had to change the design a little or maybe a lot but it’s all good :-)

I love yarn bombing as you know and I love to post about it every so often to give me inspiration and to make the world a happier place.

So here are some that I found online, Enjoy!! and please Have a Great Day!!! It is A Gift!!

   

 

 

 

BULLION AND BRUGES LACE CAL DAY 14

I hope you have finished the last row and you are ready for the next 2 easy rows.
Today we are going to do a row of a bigger tape, it consists of 4 double crochet DC plus 6 chains for the loop.
So chain 13 and place your first DC in chain #7 then the other 3 in each successive chain, then chain 3 to anchor, skip two 3 DC from the last row and anchor, continue until you reach the end and sew together.

The corners are made up of 3 loops and the middle should have one loop.

Now you are ready for this row: just attach your thread in the middle loop and crochet 3 DC then 2 chains and make your corners the usual way by insertin in each loop and when you have all 3 loops close with a slip stitch and repeat. Check the photographs, for any clarification, Thanks!!

DIS AND DAT

We are in the middle of a very hot but beautiful Summer. Rain here and there but still beautiful days most of the times. How are you doing? I hope you are enjoying each and every day to the fullest.

I am working on RR my recycled rug and he’s now bigger than Big Lil Pet and 50 times heavier, working with T-shirt yarn is not for the faint of heart. But when I see growth so fast that “fires” me up and I cannot put him down, he’s addictive.

I don’t want to keep neglecting Big Lil Pet, but really, why does she have to grow so slowly? :-)

Next, I want to revamp a jean jacket. I love anything jean and I want to take mine from Plain Jane to Glamorous Jane, one of a kind jacket. That is coming shortly…

Next, The Road Trip a.k.a The Bruges Lace and Bullion CAL is entering the tricky stage. The Bullion part is coming up, and I lost my little plastic thingy to help out with this stitch.

I have no idea where it is, it’s annoying. I just may learn this stitch without any help, but it won’t be an easy task, the thread doesn’t help one bit. This stitch needs a helper.

I have learned to do another stitch too, and I am making a dishcloth to practice it, and I have bought more jumbo hooks for my quest to become an Extreme Crochet Artist.

So what are you up to?

Here are some pics……….and don’t forget to … Have A Fun and Artistic and Fantastic Day!!!

I STILL LOVE IRISH LACE

I still love Irish Lace it is crochet in the most magnificent form. I have to admit that “real” lace is made crocheting over a foundation and it is a long process, but they have a more modern type.

It takes time to produce a master piece but it is worth it. I have yet to make a project, I have good intentions but it takes a lot of practice and know how, but I would love to attempt it soon. The thread that is used today yis thicker so the project looks a little bigger but the beauty is still there.

BULLION AND BRUGES LACE DAY 13

We are making good progress and the Road Trip is going places. Are you with us? I hope we did not leave anyone behind :-)

This row is all about tape again: to start, chain 11 since this tape is just 2 DC and the loop is 6 chains as before, continue until you reach the corner, the anchor will be in the middle of the single DC of the row below and continue with the tape all around, sew to close.

Next row is again the 3 DC this time we will separate with only 1 chain in between each group of 3 DC, the corners are made up of 4 loops and you will gather all four loops and then close with a slip stitch then 3 DC then 1 chain repeat , then chain 1 and close this row.
