My new “masterpiece”

summer top with crochet

My new summer top

I love making things for myself – this was such a project. It is made of 100% silk yarn, I knitted it then added the crochet edges to it. I’m really proud of it as it required a lot of patience from me – especially where the two colors intertwin. This image came out really funny – as if I had that big belly -maybe it is giving me a hint? Anyways, as you can see it was quite windy and the sun was shining at the same time so it was really difficult to shoot a good picture – and I was eager to share it to my subscribers so didn’t go out again to get a new one.   If you would like to check out what I have on offer you can do it so here: Crochet For You

Now I am returning to my work in progress pieces – I have several actually – seems to be a habit of mine… I want to finish a crochet headband, a bra and the pair of earrings (one is ready – so just have to do the other one) this afternoon. Surely I also have a knitting project in progress which I do when I have to travel. I live in a big city and getting to places takes up time – why not use it efficiently?

 

 

 

IMG_0827[1]As for this one…. well, it was supposed to be a woman’s summer hat I crocheted for myself from a pattern – well as you can see it turned out to be so small that it maybe can cover the top of my head… Have you already had a similar experience when following a pattern? So I re-purposed its function: I’ll have to make the last row and it will be a table coaster.

Free Time Activity: Crocheting

I always loved handcraft, I started quite early at the age of 7 actually 🙂 There are periods in my life when I do a lot, and at other times nothings…

Recently I started crocheting again, and I realized that I have several unfinished projects both in knitting and crocheted stuff. So I kind of make a pact with myself at these times: OK, I can start the new project but I also finish one of the old ones.

So comes that now I knit and do crochet as well. I finished a pair of knitted socks recently and another is on the way, while I do crochet earrings and baby booties. As I can knit while I travel, I usually take my knitting with me and make use of the time spent on the underground, bus, etc – or sometimes even while watching a good movie at home. On the left zou can see one of the baby booties I made.

Now with crochet it is different. I have to pay attention to what I do 100%. So I do have to allocate time for crocheting only. On the other hand I love doing it! My friends love my stuff and so I recently opened a shop on Etsy as well.

You can see all my crocheted stuff by clicking on: Your Crochet World . I am in a creation mood, so more things are on the way 🙂 I already joined the Hungarian team – now this story is interesting for sure!

I was doing my medieval dress(more on this in another post)  at my friends house as I don’t have a working sewing machine at the moment. She had visitors and we started talking. She explained a lot of things about selling on Etsy and said she can send me an invitation and if I register through that link I can get 40 free listings. As you can imagine I was sold 🙂

 

So this is the story of starting to sell my handmade products. Do you do any kind of handcraft? What do you enjoy about it? – You are welcome to leave a comment below!

Solitaire necklaces

Solitaire diamond necklaces with white, yellow and rose gold

Solitaire diamond necklaces

I don’t know about you but when I saw these Solitaire necklaces I just fell in love with them! Did you know there is rose gold as well? I surely didn’t!

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not that jewelry fan – actually I hardly ever buy any but if I do I don’t mind how much it costs – if I fall in love with one then I buy it. That’s how I bought my ruby necklace a couple of years ago and I’m still glad I did.

This Solitaire diamond necklace is on my list now. Can you guess which gold I’m going to chose – or rather say I already chose?

Did you say rose? – BINGO – I mean everybody has yellow gold necklaces, but very few have the rose one and very few have black diamond in their necklace 🙂

I can’t wait to save up enough money for this Solitaire necklace! Will surely let you know when I purchased one 🙂
