Scrappy Rug

Second scrappy rug is growing I have now made 9 squares using bits and pieces working c2c (corner to corner).
Squares are 13x13 pixels small (or big). I have no idea why i chose devil's dozen...
I am using hook nr 4 and 2 strands of leftover yarn bits in DK (this is mainly for myself so I do not forget whitch crochethook to take when returning to the rug), hook is probably smaller than would be needed for that thickness of yarn, but as it is not supposed to be blanket but it is gonna be rug it should be more firm than squishy ;)

Few more pics ...

Spring sweater

Hi and hello! ;)
My spring sweater is ready to rock this world!

As you might guess it's freezing outside! (-1C to be precise) so I ran out, snapped few photos and ran back in (thank god and my husband for hot fireplace in the kitchen) :)
It's gonna be about a month till +10C and real opportunity to show this beauty outside tough ...

This is the yarn that jumpstarted my spring ;)

And here I have started my granny style spring sweater ..
In the begging there were looooooong chain and huge hole for the head :P when I felt like shoulders are covered I folded this square and started working in rounds.

Loads more pictures to come ;)

Letter of the week: O

O is my little mans letter .. He used to point it out wherever he went like Sam does now with hers.
But he has outgrown that childish game and now he prefers his full name:
  • he writes it himself (just his name) and any colouring ends real fast (he hates it, I have no idea why) he colours about a square inch (tiny spot on a page), decides he should write instead, writes his name and if I suggest some other words he claims "too tired" and runs off to jump on bed ... :D
  • he uses scrabble letters to put together his name in two "letter couches" as we call them .. :)
  • he uses puzzle letters to arrange his name (something quite similar as scrabble just letters on puzlepieces) other kind of puzzles do not interest him now ...
(On really rare occasions I have managed to trick him into writing Sam's name)

Letter of the week: S

Letter S is first one Sam learned about a year ago, she notices it everywhere! One letter S in a word and she claims that word as her own and I have to remind that letter and word is not quite the same ...

And then in last years October (I think) I made a whole crochet alphabet :) and was planning to share the letter patterns here. (I won't make any predictions on how loooong it might take me to write up all the patterns, because usually those predictions turn around and bite me :D ) And I was planning to share pattern for "S" first, but then "I" came sooooooo easily ;P
I should have written them when I was making them because then I knew every letter by heart, but now I have to look at the finished things and think real hard how did I make them ?!...

SO finally! Pattern for letter S
