Hello my dears!
Did you think I was away... again?
No... just being a bit of a busy bee :)
Ok... let's see if I can bring you up to date (sort of, at least!)
Yesterday I went to the Junta Medica (sort of a medical board) who though I am fit to go back to work, after a few months on sick leave. That's great news, right?
It means I'm off from all treatments and back to my controls--every 3 months--to make sure the Beast is gone for good and stays that way :)
The bad news is I'll have less time for my girly things that have kept me busy and sane all these months... but now that I have found again my long lost love for crochet and knitting and all crafts alike I'm not letting them go!
In the mean time, here are some of the things I've been up to...
The leftover yarn...
Well, I wasn't talking about big bundles of them, just teeny weeny bits of yarn you think you can do nothing of...
How about some potholders (the right one was based on Alice's African Flower Potholder at Crochet with Raymond?
Or some embelishments for a sweater / scarf (check out the scarf below) ?
A pin cushion like these I think are so cute at Pontinhos Meus--I didn't get around to this yet but I will!
Anyway, after these I finished a few WIP's...
Remember Ana's handdyed yarn? Here's the finished result.
I searched and searched and finally found this pattern called Saroyan and as I read about it on Liz Abinante's blog it seemed to be the perfect pattern for this! It shows off beautifully the changes in color and it was just right for the amout of yarn I had (120gr, one skein)
The crochet flower I mentioned above seems to be the perfect finishing touch for it, with a little green button for the center (it took me forever to make this up... the patterns I found just didn't quite cut it!) I think I know just where this scarf is going to end up ;) (more on that later...)
Oh... and you liked the little cardigan underneath it?
That was a project finished a little while ago... Probably my most favorite cardigan :) I'll tell you more about it some other day...
Last but not least--the new yarn love is keeping my hands busy! But now I'm torn between the granny square scarf and a Japanese flower scarf...
I'm sure you are all busy bees these days too... what have you been up to?
