Since a long time I´ve wanted to knit this shawl and although I should do a lot of other things, I´ve started it now. When I find some minutes to sit down and knit I sooth my mind with knitting some stitches and looking at the beautiful colours of the Noro Silk garden yarn. By the way, it is both yarn from stash.
I still have the strange urge to crochet and with the amazing and crazy colours and colourchanges in Noro yarns it is really a pleasure and fun. I always was a bit afraid of crocheting and that I wouldn´t understand the pattern. Now as I tried it out I am surprised and happy. It is much easier than I thought and once I understood the crochet charts it became nice and easy.
This flower is called "Etole Japonaise" in french and is originally from a japanese crochet book. I found it on a french blog and tried it out today. It is cute and easy to make. Maybe one day I´ll crochet more of them.
And now my largest and most difficult crochet project until now....tatataaaaa
Yarn: different leftovers from Noro Silk Garden Sock and Noro Kureyon Sock
I´ve fallen in love with this bag the first time I´ve seen it on ravelry but was afraid of trying it out. But what would I have to loose? So I bought the pattern, searched my stash for the little leftover Noro balls and started to crochet....and crochet...and crochet....until this cute little crazy colourful bag was finished. I love it, but unfortunatly so does my dearest girl ;)
