  1. Hello, I wanted to post this link to an original crochet pattern I created for a quick doily.
  2. I was travelling by bus and I saw this old lady wearing a crochet sweater I loved. I took mental note and back home I tried to design my own in the same style. Here is the result. I hope you like it. Tourvel http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cVt8IhfavZI/UHC9eLx34CI/AAAAAAAABXw/ifjsn3a4kf4/s320/DSC01869.jpg

    easter bunnies

    I dont know why but forgot to post these bunnies. i made them last year for easter and my nephews and nieces loved them. The pattern is free.
  4. Finsihed my Mamy Bag. It´s a great pattern to destash!!!. I chose to make African Flower hexagons.
  5. lovely! the owner must be very happy!!!!
  6. gorgeous,... i love basketweave!!!
  7. i think its ok if you dye with ecofriendly non-toxic dyes, food coloring or natural plant dyes such as onion peels and stuff.
  8. This is my first pattern for a lace doily... i hope you like it!! I used it as decoration for a glass jar where i keep buttons, sequins and beads. I bet i had similar patterns in books and magazines, but couldnt find them, so i created my own. It can also be used as flat doily.
  9. my husband looooves scarves- i think its useful for men and there are a lot of patterns.. i was also thinking of hats, beanies for example. pillows and slippers would be a good idea too. when my grandad was in a wheelchair, we used to knit and crochet some for him to be as comfortable as possible. last but not least, i saw a pattern for crochet cravattes in an old book i have, but i guess if they would wear them.
  10. I thought i posted this already, but seems it got lost. I used some variegated yarns that gave me some interesting patterns. this is boucle... it gave some sort of diagonal design (dont know if its very evident in the picture): . Same yarn, different colour and pattern, gave vertical bars every 5-6 rows: this yarn is in fact a variegated cotton cord that i paid only 1 dollar at the factory sale, it pooled quite nicely and simmetrically, but one of the halves seems to have much more white in it . i wear it all the time anyway because it fits me perfectly and its very comfortable: FRONT BACK
  11. my nick in ravelry is the same: Laurakis. you can see some of my knitted items there. and some crochet too!
  12. great idea!!! i have just begun to practise my tunisian stitches so i think it will make a wonderful starting project!!! thanks!
  13. great pattern!! i have bought some wooden handles that will go perfectly with this!!
