Finally! It's here it's here!! Finessa is a blanket I've been testing for the wonderful @stitchtheories the most awesomest pattern, tried and tested by yours truly and a few other lovely ladies. You can get the pattern on Ravelry and Etsy. Mine's done in Stylecraft Special DK and Cygnet DK. I've added the side circle in squares to acquire some more width, pattern by Color 'n Cream. I did a simple moss stitch border in cream and barley to finish it off. It's 130 cm/51 inch long and 90 cm/35.5 cm wide. #finessa #finessethis #teambarley #cygnetdk #stylecraftspecialdk #craftastherapy #crochetlove #ilovecrochet #ganchillo #virkat #virka #haken #häkeln #haekle #croché #crochet #crochetaddict #crochetblanket #crochetersofinstagram #instacrochet #crochetgirlgang #hakeniship #trapillo #uncinetto #hekle #hekling #crochetconcupiscense #crochêt #crochetastherapy #myloveforwip

Lovely @lillalejon asked me what I was up to. Well.... lots of exciting things! Tomorrow @stitchtheories is having her wonderful pattern out, that I had the honour of testing along with some other lovely ladies. As a thank you, she send me this amazing Scheepjes Whirl! (Swipe left for the pic) This lot you see here is from my leftover bag of Drops Cotton Light from waaaayyyy back when I first started crocheting. I'm on a sort of yarn ban, so I'm digging in my stash and finding all crazy things. I'll show you girls (and occasional boy) more of the test blanket tomorrow. Would you like to share what you're up to? @olivesandpickles and @kerryandtheboys

Finally! Soon I'll be able to show you some of my secret stuff I've been working on the last six (!) months with Railyn from @stitchtheories ! She's made the most excellent pattern and I've helped her test and try it with some other dear ladies. Repost from @stitchtheories using @RepostRegramApp - And, then, a HUGE contest giveaway to follow the actual release. Stay tuned. 😎

Lovely @kerryandtheboys has asked me #widn , well, I've made a little video of my Nuts blanket. It's all done and completed! *swipe left for an overall pic* I've used Scheepjes Sunkissed yarn. I do like it but I don't think I would soon make another big blanket like this with it, it's so thin.... better to use it for amigurumi and shawls and such. I have some left 🤔 maybe .... a shawl.... or a bolster cushion cover.... hmmmm.... 😏😏 Thanks so much @itsallinanutshell it's been wonderful 😊😘👌🏻#itsallinanutshell #nutsaboutsquarescal #scheepjes #scheepjessunkissed #crochetgirlgang #crochetastherapy #crochetaddict #craftastherapy #crochetconcupiscence #hakeniship #uncinetto #ganchillo #trapillo #crochet #croché #crochê #haken #haekle #hekle #hekling #virkning #virkat #häkeln #instacrochet #crochetersofinstagram #grannysquares #crochetborder #lillabjorncrochet

And there it is.... the final stitch... when I join this to the first stitch it's officially done. (I'm slightly cheating, I'm skipping a round 😝) just a few snippety snips and sew sew here and there. I've enjoyed, loved and hated it sometimes. But overall it's been quite the adventure. Thanks so much @itsallinanutshell it's been wonderful 😊😘👌🏻#itsallinanutshell #nutsaboutsquarescal #scheepjes #scheepjessunkissed #crochetgirlgang #crochetastherapy #crochetaddict #craftastherapy #crochetconcupiscence #hakeniship #uncinetto #ganchillo #trapillo #crochet #croché #crochê #haken #haekle #hekle #hekling #virkning #virkat #häkeln #instacrochet #crochetersofinstagram #grannysquares #crochetborder #lillabjorncrochet

I've been asked by @tossedwave about #widn well, I've been planning the final round for these Circle of friends ehhh.. circles. 😆 After this last round I will start joining them in a mixed grey by @cygnet_yarns . (The rest is @stylecraftyarns Special DK) I'm also planning some holiday crochet project. More on that later this week. Aaaand I'm chugging along on the Nuts about squares blanket as well. Busy busy busy! Would @dustydimples like to play a game? If you want to of course!

* Swipe left for more pics * Finished my #threespringsshawl by @addydae_designs yesterday and I realized I didn't post any decent pics yet! So here it is. I really like it, it has a nice drape to it. So that's a nice gift to tick off my to-do list 😊 Yarn is #babymerino by @dropsdesign #craftastherapy #crochetlove #ilovecrochet #stylecraftspecialdk #ganchillo #virkat #virka #haken #häkeln #haekle #croché #crochet #crochetaddict #craftastherapy_calm #crochetersofinstagram #instacrochet #crochetgirlgang #hakeniship #trapillo #uncinetto #hekle #hekling #crochetshawl #crochetconcupiscense #crochêt #crochetastherapy #myloveforwip

Making a #threespringsshawl by @addydae_designs with #dropsbabymerino by @dropsdesign for my husbands aunt as a surprise birthday gift. I think it will be gorgeous although it'll need some fierce blocking *shudder* . Unfortunately I won't be able to see her face when she'll open it as we'll be on holiday when the surprise party takes place. My SIL will be taking it with her to the party, I'll wrap it nicely and add a nice card with it. 😊

Some outdoor crochet today. A picknick blanket, havaianas, some left over cake for me, the hubby, the SIL, the nephew and my kiddo, a kiddie pool in the park and some circles to crochet. Bliss... #craftastherapy_calm #outdoorcrochet #wantijpark #dordrecht
