Projects done and in work.

I want to post some projects I've done recently and ones in work to keep myself motivated. :))
So, I've been working hard on writing Country Cardigan Pattern in different sizes. I don't know it's funny or sad: I write one size, kind of finish it, start another one, then go back and don't remember why I did some things and start figuring it out again. It's been exhausting. I guess it's age. After 40 I've noticed it's not as easy as it used to be, but I think this pattern created some new connections in my brain. To connect 2 different stitches I have to recount everything and have a picture in my mind to write i down. :0
Anyway, it is coming together. I think it's the hardest part for me - to write instruction for the other sizes but prototype.


I finished step-by-step tutorial on 2 present boxes:


Finished step-by-step tutorials on bracelets:


and working on a new project. I think it will be a pullover. I have an idea, but very often it gets changed it in the process.


Ah, also this tutorials are done:


Ok, I proved to myself I wasn't lazy. :)) I am going to have a celebration when I finish my Country Cardigan, big celebration! :)
Also I made Boho style long duster with fringe, which I absolutely love, but it needs a button I haven't found yet.
I think it's a good idea to start charts and instructions on a computer while the piece is in work. It's much easier to do the pattern after all when something is already done, because when you finish a project you already sick and tired and wand to move on.
And again, praying for my Green card! :))
Happy crocheting, my friends!
Don't forget to stand up every 15 minutes! Stay healthy!

  4. Natalia, a una señora de 80 años le preguntaron cual seria la edad a la que regresaría, ella ha dicho 40, porque? ella ha dicho que es el mejor momento de la vida, no los 20 años, no los 30 años, los 40 !! Ahora también tengo 40, entonces a disfrutarlos para pensar lo mismo a los 80 años.
    Saludos, te sigo desde hace tiempo y me gustan muchos de tus trabajos y la pasión que tienes por el crochet y sobre todo que pones manos a la obra.

  6. These are all absolutely wonderful but I particularly like the triangles, what a fab use of colour and stitches! Good luck on the green card.

  7. You inspire me!!! I've also written patterns into words... it would be so wonderful if crocheters read charts... it's so much EASIER. I've not written a clothing pattern YET that needed sizes (only have done shawls as far as clothing goes) but yes it does stretch your brain connections and helps you stay mentally younger...so keep doing it. There is a study going on about how crochet helps the brain... do you know about it?
    Also praying for your green card, would hate to lose you. You are such an inspiration and much loved. I talk about you and your site to all my crochet students. Soon I will be starting an Irish Crochet class due largely to the inspiration of your site and Irish Crochet Lab site so pray for us also.

    1. Thank you, Loree! I probably made everybody sick already telling my story how I am not allowed to work in US with my visa H-4. I am waiting for my green card process to finish and then I will sell my patterns. I think it will happen in 2015! :)) I will let everybody know.
