Christmas gift part 2

29 Dec

After my first “Christmas gifts post” here is my second creation which is of a different kind: a crocheted infinity scarf…

Two spins is the ideal….

 

2 rounds

… also one spin is acceptable.

No rounds

But I wouldn’t reccomend “no spins” at all….

Fingermade

14 Oct

Yes, that’s correct. This kitty’s bed is literally fingermade, as I have used my very own fingers instead of a traditional crochet to make it.
Nemo seems to appreciate it…

Doily fever

13 Aug

I’ve been definitely mesmerized by Zooty Owl’s doily patterns: they are lovely and easy, and the tutorials couldn’t be clearer. So, here is another doily I finished crocheting yesterday…..

I have found the pattern for this lovely Mandala doily here and I decided to give it a try. It was easier than I expected and the result is pretty!

Lovely doily

11 Apr

Here is a lovely doily I made recently. Actually I begun crocheting it few months ago, but then I came to a halt because I had a bit of a problem at deciphering the instructions…. after a while, with a clearer mind, I finally understood the enigma and here is the result….

BTW, thanks to Janette from The Green Dragonfly blog, for the tutorial that can be found here…. it was only due to my dumbness that it wasn’t completed earlier… 🙂

Last but not least

…. I was almost going to forget to post this Xmas gift I made for my brother’s girlfriend. It’s an infinity scarf/neck warmer that can also be used as a hood. I’m not sure whether she appreciated it or not, but trust me when I tell you that it is *far* better than what I got from her….

Snake scarf

14 Jan

Here is a scarf I made for Paola as Christmas gift. I used the same wool as the one for her daughter Marta’s, so to have a mother-daughter matching scarves. 🙂 Because of all its spirals it reminds me of a snake! It took me quite a while to crochet and the result is a bit funny.

Neckwarmer

This neck-warmer has been made for my friend’s husband, Vincenzo. Since he’s already wearing it, I guess this is another success for me! Thumbs up!

This infinity scarf is still from my Xmas Gifts Series…. I crocheted this for my friend Paola’s daughter, Marta. I hope the blend of purple, fuchsia, ecc… is fashionable enough for her!

Merry Christmas

23 Dec

Every year I make a decoration for my Christmas tree. This year, since I hadn’t much time left due to my Little Santa Helper‘s job I decided to make this cute little crocheted star.

So, here are my best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone out there….
