update on the Catania Grande yarn challenge from Indonesia: the yarn has arrived in good order, both Alessandra and myself are very pleased with this news. next week we will get a glimpse of the first stitches she made with these red, pink and green pretties. I can't wait to see the start of her oval table runner!
Marie-Thérèse has taken off with the little baby poncho she is making for her daughter. when she sent me the pictures earlier this week and I opened them on my computer, I instantly got a big smile on my face. don't you just love the way the colors work in these first rows? I love it, so so so tiny and cute. she works with a crochet hook size 5 mm and it works perfect with her tension I think.
and last, the progress of my own blanket. I struggled and tried, started over and over again, but finally found a way to work the squares up in rows instead of separate ones. I must admit I am quite pleased to see how these first rows came out. the yarn is nice to work with, I don't find it very stiff which is good. I choose a hook size 4.5 mm and this works perfectly with my tension I think.
wow, now we are all three in the game for this weekly project I am really getting excited about it! it is so great to see pictures coming from Indonesia and the Netherlands and share them with you. I await the pictures like a little girl awaits her candy, haha. I love it when the internet facilitates projects like these.
have a lovely day
