Just a quick note πŸ€“

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

If you’re as taken with them as I am…The Etsy store is ‘Inventorium’ —–> here’s the Link

The Stubborn Granny Square – Problem solved πŸ˜

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Now – as promised – I’m gonna show you what I did with the yellow/grey Granny Squares that didn’t wanna play well with others πŸ˜‹

The plan was to make another Granny Square Cardigan

or a Granny Square Poncho. But no matter what color I tried, nothing would match the yellow/grey. πŸ˜•

See what I mean?

On the post in which I was whining about my predicament, the wonderful Brenna @ Crochet 539 advised me to set them aside, and wait for inspiration. So I did. 😊

Then, a few days ago, I received a yarn order, and in it was a fabulous, delicious yarn – Red Heart’s ‘Unforgettable’ in ‘ Sunrise’ 😍

As I was fingering it, my mind went to the squares, tucked away in the Granny-Square-Pile…yes there is such a thing in my house 😜

And I thought, well, if I can’t match it, I gotta go the crazy route, and do the unconventional, the unexpected. And you know how I love to go down that road. 😁

So I put the two together. My daughter just raised one skeptical eyebrow 😏 but didn’t say anything. I didn’t hate it, so I started the square. If it were an absolute no-no, like the other ones, I could always add it to the pile. 😁

But see what happened…it worked! πŸ˜ƒ At least I think so! What do you think? Yay or Nay?

I did add the black to make the transition more pleasant, and I love how it now looks a bit like stained glass. 😊

Because I like the yarn so much, I made a matching Infinity Scarf

As it happens so often, I do wanna keep it. But, if I constantly do that my Etsy store will have nothing but dust bunnies and tumbleweed in it! πŸ˜†

So I’m still on the fence about it.

I’d love to hear what you think! 😍 Please let me know…I’m looking forward to it – I think πŸ˜‰

Sending Smiles πŸ™‚ Hugs πŸ€— and Love πŸ’• your way.

In the Spotlight – The (finished!) Puzzle Poncho πŸŽ‰πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ†

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Would you please raise your glass…

and help me celebrate the completion of the Puzzle Poncho! 😍

…with cozy (attached) Infinity Scarf

Some details…

The ends are all tucked away…finally! It happened again this morning – just when I thought I got them all, I discovered another cluster. But now, about an hour and a half later, I reeaaaly got them all (I checked all around, inside and out) twice 😜

I will bask in the feeling of satisfaction for a bit. But, as we all know, there is no rest for the wicked – I do have a few WIPs to tend to. One is near completion, let’s talk about that tomorrow! 😁

A little hint – I finally figured out what to do with the ‘They-don’t-match-anything’ yellow/grey Granny Squares

Thanks to the advice from the lovely Brenna from the wonderful blog Crochet 539 – she had told me to set it aside, and wait for a flash of inspiration. 😊 I did just that, and I am quite pleased with the result.

I hope you will join me tomorrow for some WIP talk, and some random ramblings. 😁

Until then πŸ’•

WiPs β€˜n Things

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I really dropped the ‘blogging-ball’ last month. πŸ™ƒ So one of the things I have to change – not calling it a resolution … ’cause they tend to come here to die 😜 – is getting back into the rhythm, writing more, visiting with you! I did miss you all! 😍

It’s already the 6th, so I am getting a late start, but we can call this a Trial Month, I guess 😁

It’s ok… I read it on the Internets, so it’s the truth!πŸ˜‚

Besides the usual holiday craziness last month, there were a few things that kept me busy, leading to falling behind in some endeavors, put things on the back burner.

One of the ‘distractions’ was a custom order for a poncho and a hat

The lovely lady that gave Feronia a new home, contacted me and ordered another Poncho and a Tassel Hat…this time in all black 😳 You know me… I love my things crazy and colorful. So it was definitely a challenge. A few times I had to fight the notion to put a pink stitch in. Just one…right here πŸ˜‚

But – I fought it, and it was worth the struggle. She looooved it! 😍

In between all the Christmas ‘duties’, presents, and planned projects, the son of dear friends of ours and his wife welcomed a baby boy into their midst…a little early. But he was close to 8 pounds – so he was ready to meet the world 😍 We think he wanted to see the Christmas tree 😁 and his ‘ Granny Square Blanket’ 😍

Then this one here took a lot of my time… The Puzzle Poncho 😊

If you remember – probably not, since you have a life…so let me jog your memory – it started as a Cowl.While I was working on that, and really liking it, my mind wandered to the possibilities of all things fabulous that would look great in this color combo.

I decided on another puzzle piece…’cause I really enjoy making small pieces and putting them together.

After it took shape I worked on it like a woman possessed 😁

And it’s done! 😊

Well, almost – the neckline will be an Infinity Scarf…it’ll look like a loose turtleneck, and the dreaded ends. Still gotta weave in some ends. 😫 I’ve woven in a ton already. Every time I think I’m done I discover another cluster.

It sure is a crazy piece…I can’t wait to wear it out and about! πŸ™ƒ

Also…some ‘ Bohemian Queen’ cowls are close to being finished. Miss Katherine (⬆️ the one with the hat) is giving you a sneak peek 😊

That’s all the news from the hook and drawing board. I’m looking forward to showing you the finished pieces, and some new WIPs that are – for now – just floating around in my head. 😍

Have a wonderful weekend πŸ€—

Happy Birthday! 🎁

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Before I – finally 😬- jump back into the blogging world I wanna wish you all the happiest of years! 😍 May it be a healthy, creative one – full of pleasant surprises!

…and to all the January-Babies ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY’ πŸ˜πŸŽπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸ₯‚

I hope you have a wonderful Birthday Month…you deserve it, because you are fabulous – I have it in writing 😊

Best Wishes, Smiles πŸ™‚ Hugs πŸ€— and Love πŸ’• to you all!

Your πŸŽ…πŸΌ Advent πŸ•― Calendar πŸŽ„ ~ Day 24

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Here we are…at the last day and door of the Advent Calendar. I had so much fun peeking behind each door every morning, and hope you enjoyed it too! 😍

Today I wanna share with you a lovely Christmas song. It’s ‘Silent Night’, sung by Heintje.

Ever since I was a little girl, this song, in this version, is a part of my Christmas Eve. My parents played it as we kids walked into the living room to find the trimmed tree, and the presents. 😊 And I and my family carry this tradition forth to this day.

Fun fact ~ when I was 7, 8 years old I was very serious about wanting to marry him. πŸ˜† Needless to say…that didn’t happen.

Can you blame me though? πŸ˜‰

So…without further ado – here is Stille Nacht ✨

He does sing it in german. But he does have -excuse me for getting sappy- the voice of an angel. So I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 😍

Have a wonderful, joyful, peaceful Christmas πŸ’•
