Cowl in progress

Remember I told you I wanted to make a cowl like the one in Berroco's new collection?

Well, I've started it.

It's grown a lot since I took this picture, but now its stopped because the yarn I had was not enough. I have to go back to the same store where I bought it and get another skein.

I used
Bambino from Rosários 4.

Soft waves pillow

I've finished this bed pillow the other day. I crocheted it with the "soft waves" pattern from 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns, by Jan Eaton, which I love and have used before.

Crochet placemats

I looked everywhere for some placemats that matched my plates and didn't found any that I liked.

So I decided to do it myself! Here's how they turned out:

I used a navy-blue worsted-weight 100% cotton yarn I bought at Tricots Brancal (downtown Lisbon) and then my mother suggested that i'd finish it up with a golden thread she had.

I followed Debbie Stoller's recomendations for crocheting a circle in
The Happy Hooker.

Hot water bottle covers

One of my favorite objects ever is a hot water bottle! I always have one around when winter time comes. So I decided to make these covers to make them more beautiful and cozy. I used fleece and felt cloth (appliqués).

I kept one and gave the other to a friend of mine.

Colorful baby afghan

My mother made another crochet baby afghan for a friend of hers. As you must’ve noticed by now she has a lot of friends having babies!
