New Scarf Project


New scarf project on my mind....

Yarn :  Moda Vera Tarrantino    66% acrylic, 29% wool, 5% polyester   100g   65m
                                                 color 08, dye lot 120587 - mix of blue purple teal

Knitting Loom : small blue round knitting loom

Love the colors in this yarn ball, I have two so I am hoping for a longer scarf.  The yarn was bought in Spotlight, I canot remember how much, approx four bucks.

I love looming these scarfs, easy e stitch and love seeing the color pattern that comes out and you end up having a tubular shape which also doubles, so you get extra warmth...

CAL update

Hi all...how are you ?

I am going well...

I crochet more rounds on the mandala CAL...HERE ARE PICTURES

Round 1-14

Starting Rnd 15

Pretty good so far...want to join this CAL, there is still time...goto...A Creative Being

ok all...ciao for now...Have a Great Day

Turquoise Scarf


Just finished this beautiful turquoise mix scarf which was knitted on a blue circular knitting loom.
The yarn is made by Moda Vera Noemi, a Turquoise Mix, colour 9 lot S1, 88% acrylic 12% polyamide, 100g 250m.

Cool, this scarf is warm and beautiful colours, I cannot wait to wear on chilly days.
The size of scarf is 260cm long and 9cm wide.  Also double because it is done on round loom, tube like scarf but when used doubles overs, thus very warm to wear and different ways because of the length....love making scarfs this way...especially when you find soft yarns..

Also available on Ravelry, my name MonikaCrochets.

See ya for now and enjoy your day.

Just some squares


Thought I would share a couple of crochet squares......All of a sudden I have the feel to make crochet squares that appeal to my eye.....thought was to make another blanket with the squares that I crochet over time....now I feel I need to add to that so if you have a good square to share place a link onto the comments section and I will be happy to take a look.

African Flower Hexagon by Lounette Fourie

I have the pattern and decided on these 6 colors...I am feeling a bit gooky and blah blah...so i think these colors reflect that mood...see how the mandala turns out, might be ok or bit goofy. Probably from the very hot weather here in Aussie land.

colors : pink mix, yellow, light blue, dark blue, white and light purple. (blah)
these are acrylic 8ply probably thorobred brand of yarn from Spotlight.
hook : size 4.00mm

here are three pics, these are rounds 1 thru 11 so far.

There is still time to join, head over to A Creative Being for the info.

ok ciao Bella for now.....
