Easter chicklet

I made one more thing (or acctually 3more) for Easter. A chicklet! It is very easy made, and I crocheted 3 chicklets the same evening.
The Easter basket, the Easter eggs, the Easter bunny and the three chicklets have found a home. I "donated" them to work and I have been playing with the children using the eggbasket. It's nice to see that the things I crochet can be used like this.

Here is one of the three chicklets. The beak was kinda tricky, it still looks quite large...

The blanket project

Remember my blanket project?
I have had some time to work on the blanket and now I'm starting to see some progress. Happily I sat the other evening and crocheted on the blanket and proudly said to my better half: "Look, isn't it quite large already!"  He looked at the blanket and said "well..1/3 is done."
Is the glass half full or half empty? I have to see it as half full when having a long project like this, otherwise it's easier just to buy a blanket from the shop.

Our new sofa is scheduled to arrive next week or the week after that. Can't wait!!



 To add a little extra I made waves on both sides of the blanket.

Easter Bunny came to visit

Even though I said earlier that I wouldn't make a bunny this year.. I couldn't resist the temtation and so I still did make one. The bunny pattern I made up is really easy so it only took about 3h to make the whole bunny.

I used the last I had left off the 100% wool bulky yarn (yes the same as I used for the poncho, and the cupcake, and the basket). It was a very nice yarn to work with.

I made a Easter package consisting the basket, 6 eggs and the bunny. One can wonder how the bunny will be able to carry the basket since he doesn't have arms and is a bit smaller than the basket..

Easter basket with eggs

While this tireing flu-and-flu-after-sicknes-or-what-ever thing is still the same after one week of spending my hours growing in to the sofa with honeytee and tea and honeytee and... warm tee, one other thing has gone forward and that is my Easter project. YEY!

The Easter basket with eggs pattern is ready! The Pattern is here.

Ongoing Easter project

The spring flue and fever has got it's grip on me and as I'm home from work the hours of laying on the sofa or in the bed gets kinda boring. So I decided that now is the time to start the Easter project. I got the idea some time ago, so I new what I wanted to make. Last year I made easter bunnies and chicklets so this year I saw clearly the picture before my eyes: a basket with Easter eggs in all colours. I had some yarn left over from the poncho making so that was a clear choice for the basket.

Now I have made the basket and started planning the eggs. And the eggs will be in all kind of different wonderful colours. I'll show you the finished project when I have done all the eggs!
Until then, keep on crocheting!

Pearls

I got a whole bunch of wooden pearls from my mother in law. I'm gonna use them, just haven't got any ideas yet. 

I have worked on the sofa blanket for a while and now I've run out of white yarn. Couldn't' find the right yarn in the shop today..so I suppose I need to have a pause with the blanket until I find the yarn. 
What I do have is a lot of colorful yarn. I feel that I should start planning some kind of Easter patterns soon!
