Really enjoyed making this version. It looks very stylish.

I almost forgot to take pictures. It was already wrapped up as gift. Oops!

After a bit of a hiccup with stitch counting (Not at my end the pattern was wrong in my humble opinion) I had to redo 50% of the squares,

Here is the boyish version for my nephew.

Paintbox yarn Aran

Gone Blanket Crazy

Posted by Annie Altherr at 11:23 am 0 comments
As I mentioned in an earlier post I am making the Crochet Girl Gang CAL in both colours.
3 weeks finished.

That's how it looks atm.


I made the Lily Pond CAL close to the original colours and gave it away as birthday gift.
Which was a massive success but I also got the request to make another for the other settee.
I am not the one who likes to make the same stuff twice. But then I spotted that Stylecraft released a new colour version of Lily Pond.
I thought, yeah! I don't mind making another in a different colour.
I am already making the last pieces after a good week.
The new Lily Pond version is called Cherry Blossom.
It looks so stylish.
So that's another Xmas present sorted.


Browsing through eBay I found a simple blanket pattern I knew I could finish in time.

I will be using Paintbox Chunky yarn.
I went for 
5 x 307 Vanilla Cream
4 x 314 Pillar Red
4 x 316 Melon Sorbet

I'll post each one once they are finished.

Seems I have completely forgotten to post about this one.
I made this one in January 2016

I used my own colours in Stylecraft Special DK

I gave it to my Sis - in - law for her birthday.

Crochet Girl Gang CAL

I started Crochet Girl Gang CAL a few days ago in both colour versions.
I really love the Paintbox yarn.
It is very soft a crochets very well. Really good quality acrylic yarn.
Btw so far this CAL works well for beginners. You don't need to have lots of experience.
The lady's have also made videos and the patterns are easy to understand.
Go for it if you want to make a gift for someone. There will be enough time to get it finished by Xmas.

Lang Yarn Beret

Posted by Annie Altherr at 2:14 pm 0 comments
So here's a funny story.
I knitted this beret and then closed the seam and realised it was inside out.
Well, somehow my subconscious must have realised that I actually like the wrong side better.

So here it is "The inside out Beret"
