Beautiful Summer Crochet Beanie

I love summer! But living in the northern part of Europe means that summer time is short, so you have to take care of and enjoy every minute of it!

Days like today, when it is cold and rainy – even if the calendar says it’s in the midst of summer, you just have to make the best of it….what is that…well, for me it can be all kinds of crafts! You can make your own diy project, no matter the weather!

So why not start a crochet project for the summer? I know it will be hot days ahead, so maybe crochet sandals for the little ones, a beautiful sun dress for your self or a nice summer hat can be your choice??

Are you a little bit intimidated to start a quilting project? I certainly was when I first started out. I was so scared to take the scissor and start cutting the materials into pieces… What if I could not put the blocks together and make something that at least looked like a quilt?

Well, I know now that I did not have to worry. I am not a professional quilter – far from it, but I enjoy putting pieces together and make quilts – and it almost always look very nice. And not just that…the quilts are my production! It is such a nice feeling to be able to create a piece of work, that even if it is not perfect, it is mine; and a little piece of my soul is in it!

That is a great feeling! So don’t be scared – just start trying and you will experience the fun!

Here are some nice quilting patterns – made for quilting beginners

Crocheting For Beginners – My Crochet Start

full_1709_44951_GrannyBlanket_1I think crochet might have been my first try when it comes to craft. I will never forget how I was supposed to learn crocheting in school from a teacher that I guess wanted well, but that caused a small trauma in me when she forced me to learn.

I am left-handed. That is almost never a problem to me, but it was when I should learn how to crochet. We all had to do what I guess we can call the first crocheting for beginners’ project: a square pot holder.

I was left-handed but my teacher told me it was impossible for her to teach me crochet if I did not use the right hand, and my problem started! I could not even hold the crochet hook properly with my right hand, much less try to use it.

But I struggled with my potholder. I tried and I tried and it went okay. After a while. I mean it should have been a square but it come out more like triangle, but any way – I did manage the instructions, and it was, well…okay.

But I hated to crochet with me right hand – I wanted to use my left.

But then, the second project could have turned me off from ever wanting to even look at a crochet hook. Everyone in our class should crochet a bag for balls. You know the ones with holes, like a net.

This bag became a nightmare to me, because of my left hand problem. For some reason it did not work. My brain could not turn from being used to work with my left hand to now work with the right one. I could not get my brain to understand the pattern that told me to crochet some chain stitch and then attached it to the row before, and then continue to create the net.

I all the time I turned the project and started to crochet the other way and the whole bag become a mess and I could not get out of it.

I cried and cried, and wanted my mother to help me out. And she did, but then I was back again, wanting to use my left hand and wanting to turn the bag and crochet the other way.

That was a trauma. I was angry at my teacher, I cried and complained, but she never backed off on her conviction that I should learn how to crochet, but learn it backwards.

And guess what. Today I have passed my fifties, I have crocheted tons of items, and all the time I have used…exactly; my right hand!

So now the only things I do with the right hand are to crochet and play the guitar! Otherwise I am still a full blooded lefthander!

Warming Knitted Shawl For Fall!

It is fall, at least here in Northern Europe, and now is really the time for warming shawls and wraps!

It is so cozy to wrap a nice shawl around your shoulders when the wind is blowing outside, light some candles and just enjoy the moment! Maybe a good book as company…that’s great!

There are tons of wonderful patterns for shawls and scarves, but an easy one to knit, but still very beautiful is this Entrelac scarf from Craftsy. The pattern is free, and you do not need to be an advanced knitter to manage.

Why not go get the pattern here and start a new fall project: Entrelac Scarf Pattern

Happy Knitting!
