Crochet Pineapple top- for women

Hi my friends,

I hope you are all doing well, I have to wer black to winork, and plus I’ve always wanted to try this pineapple top I saw the pattern a looooong time ago so I believe 3 to 4 years, I bought a magazine with one variation of the pattern and left is aside. Now I made up my mind but did not want to follow one pattern only, so I kind of made the top with larger pineapple motif and because I thought it might become a little too loose make only chains alond the body I did some variation of stitches, therefore I did not get bored  and it did make my “belly” feel more let’s just say protected. At the bottom I did smaller sizd pineapples and because I did not count the stitches as I went along I had to make  them work in order to have even motif numbers.

Of course I used did 5 chains and 1 sc to finish off at the last row just because it seemed right.

I already had some compliments, but what it best, I loved the final result.

Tons of Crochet free e-books

Hi everyone,

I failed to have mentioned before, I have been revisiting my handmade jewelry “talent” and a considerable amount of pieces must be done by the end of May. There is going to be a great Summer Fair and I have been honored with the opportunity to take part in it. I am crocheting as well but I am having fun with other things too.

I love crafting, it is in my genes, creating with jewelry is thrilling to me too it’s been a long time  ever since I did it consistently and with my adorable beloved Dog Wolly -a Bichon Frise- who would stay patiently under my seat for an uncountable amount of hours ’till we stood up for our walk in the afternoon, long before my daughter was born. He was then only a puppy and now is almost 12 years old.

Anyway, checking on my daily emails today I decided to take a break and let you know the incredible amount of free e-books on Crochet available at Free Crochet  here you have the link, I do hope you check it up, you won’t regret,

take good care,

Drikka.

Crochet in Progress- last part- Granny Square cushion cover

Hi everyone,

Sorry having taken so long, things at home are running out of my control, kid fell ill, I started to tutor a 5th grade student, and lots more going on.

So, even though I finished the cushion last week and it has become a dear one to my daughter ever since than, I just did not have the chance to take a picture until now.

Hope you like the way it came out.

Crochet in Progress- good old granny part 2

Hello again my dear friends,

I do hope you had the most wonderful weekend, mine was full of kid’s adventures, my daughter had no class due to a teacher convention on Thursday and Friday, so it was a bit of a vacation for us. What brings to the next info; no, I was not able to finish my crochet cushion cover yet.

Even so I was able to fasten off all those crazy pieces of yarn in the back part of it, and since that is what takes longer I believe by tomorrow I’ll be able to show you the last part of my let’s call it “project”, shall we?

Here are the recently uploaded pictures:

Crochet in Progress good old granny square

Hey you,

There is no doubt life is full of surprises. But once you open yourself to them, and with an open heart true feeling.It works, there is not a place I have been, I hadn’t learned a thing or two, and boy I have been to places…
Never tried drugs though, that is not wht I mean, I once learned at the University with my then Psychology professor in a workshop about drugs and alcoholism that some people don’t have the genetics to be a drug dependent, and others do, and the only way to really get to know it is if you ever tried it. Well I took his word for it, after all why would I ever try them? When you have to support yourself and afford your own University you ought to know better. What I mean is I’ve been to many places, from downtown São Paulo, among 2 million people on a daily basis to get the perfect yarn or cristal for a jewelry, samba schools right before Carnival, to really fancy hotels and restaurants. No matter where you go if you use your listening ears, you are about to have a certain kind of experience.

Let’s cut the crap  I mean talk and go on showing what I am up to lately I want to voer a horrible small green cushion. In order for me to do that I am doing the so known pattern of a granny square, see the beautifully made instructions in this blog I consider genious Purl Bee it is nice, traditional, and has such cozy looking.

Based on this picture  on the cover of Simply Crochet Magazine I ended up making the border in white too because it gives the squares a nice ‘clean’ finishing and even compliment the colors I used, so I will go on with it and think I might be able to finish it up in the ner future,
