After a great summer, it is back to reality here. School started this week so my girls are picking up their routines, hubby is back to work and after my surgery I'm slowly getting back to work also.
We have visited Paris, went to see a friend who moved to Italy last year and opened a B&B in San Damiano d'Asti and ended with a week rest in the region of Lyon and Saint-Etienne in France.
Obviously there has been time to crochet! I have been looking for a case for my crochet hooks. Never found what I was looking for until ... I saw this case
I immediately loved it.
So I rushed to the yarn shop and choose the colours I wanted and started. It is almost finihed now, all that is left to do is crochet the ribbon to close the case.
I have used Catania for this crochet hook case.
The case is crocheted in a combination of single and double crochet stitches.
My second work in progress is a wrap for my youngest daughter. Those of you who have a subscription to Simply Crochet also received the extra booklet with the last issue. The booklet is dedicated to crochet cotton and several cute patterns are featured in it, such as a the infinity scarf I am currently making.
The scarf is crocheted with hook size 1.5 mm and crochet cotton. My daughter picked the colours. She likes bright colours!
I have a huge stash of this cotton because I use it to crochet jewelry (besides silk). Needless to say it takes some time to crochet just one round :) But I like the result.
The idea is to repeat the coloured bands twice. I have only repeated the red so far, so still some work to do!
