ON MY HOOK WEDNESDAY - Week 1

Don´t you just love this color combo?

I just discovered the phenomenon called Link Parties a few days ago. Up until then I hadn´t even heard about it, but after a little research I must say I´m really excited.

Through the link parties you get the chance to share your own work with other bloggers, and you get to discover and find new bloggers of your own. A win-win situation!So I´m going to try to have a regular post each Wednesday called On My Hook Wednesday, where I post about my last week´s projects, and I´m going to link it up to Wednesday Link Parties. Who knows, maybe it´ll turn into my own link party one day where others can join :)

 The past week I´ve worked on several projects. I started with a black and white chevron pillow, but I put that on hold because I think I might change the colors.


Then I joined a Mini-CAL (Crochet-A-Long) on a group called Crochet Along on Google+, which resulted in this crochet headband. Click on the link if you want to see more photos.





The 
crochet headband was a little side project from the afghan I´m working on. I want a new afghan for my couch, and I found this nice pattern from Yarnspirations that I really liked. I love the colors and can´t wait for it to be done. 

So this is what was on my hook the last week. What have you been up to? :)

On My Hook Wednesday is linking up to these link parties:

CROCHET HEADBAND - Crochet-A-Long (CAL) on Google+



Last night I made a crochet headband after being invited to a Crochet-A-Long (CAL). The other day I joined a group called Crochet Along on Google+ and this is where I got the invitation. I thought it would be a nice little project on the side, I could use a little break from my crochet afghan that I´m working on right now, so I found some leftover yarn and dived right in.

I didn´t make my crochet headband exactly like the headband in the CAL, I wanted it to look a little different. I also made another flower, a smaller one than the one they used in the CAL. I wrote down the pattern as I crocheted, and I will post it here on my blog next week. I´d like to do it earlier than that, but I´m going away for the weekend and I have a lot to do before that, so unfortunately there is no time. But early next week I´ll transcribe my notes (luckily I took some step-by-step photos of the process last night) and then you can make your own headband if you´d like. Or you can just go right ahead and make the one in the CAL :)


Here are some more photos, I will take better photos of the finished crochet headband when I post the pattern.




Crochet-A-Long´s are fun! I recently joined another one as well, I´ll tell you more about that some other time.

Have a great day!

Hege :)

WORKING ON MY CROCHET BLOG


Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! I´m sitting here working on my crochet blog before I have to go to work. I´m trying to organize my blogging a little bit by making a schedule for blog posts, write down ideas and so on. I´m going to do my best in order to post on a regular basis, and in order to do so it doesn´t hurt to plan ahead.

I joined a group on Google+ the other day, called Crochet Along on Google+, and one of this month´s CAL´s (Crochet A Long´s) was a cute headband. I will crochet the headband this afternoon, and make a post about it tonight. Hope you´ll stop by later to check it out :)
--------------------------------------------------------------
Edit: Life got in the way, so I didn´t get the chance to finish the CAL Headband this evening after all, which means I´ll have to postpone the post until further notice.

Time for work!

WIP - CROCHET DRESS

crochet dress crochetbyhege


A couple of years ago I started on a personal project, a crochet dress for my self. The plan was to use it in a wedding, but I constantly changed my mind about how I wanted it to look like, that´s an ongoing problem when you make your own designs, and I didn´t want to finish it just to finish it, since I´d spent so much time on it allready. I knew that if I rushed it to get it done for the wedding, I might end up regretting the choices I made. So I ended up using another dress that I made several years ago instead, and put this dress on hold.

And that´s where it has been since that, on hold. :-P

I´ve crocheted more than 100 different parts, but I´m not sure how many I´m going to use. So far the upper part is allmost done, I have sewed the bodice from an old top/dress that I never used, and then I crocheted on top of the sewn piece. It´s the skirt that I can´t decide on, I´m going back and forth between slim and flowy, or something in between. And I´m not sure if I´m going to fill the entire skirt with crochet, or just parts of it. Hopefully I´ll decide eventually :-P

More than 100 different pieces. Some are made from diagrams I found on the internet and some are from my imagination.

I would love some feedback on the skirt though. What do you think would look the best, flowy or a slim skirt?

CROCHET GIRLS DRESS


I made this crochet girls dress a few years ago when a good friend of mine got her first daughter. I prefer to make my own designs, but now and then it´s fun to try out other people´s patterns too, especially when they look like this.

I ordered the pattern book from the US several years ago, if you want to check it out it´s called "Dresses to Crochet for Dolly and Me" by Delsie Rhoades.  


Here are some more photos, sorry about the quality, they were taken a long time ago with a bad cell phone camera.

CROCHET BABY BLANKET - Purple & Gray

crochet baby blanket



I designed this crochet baby blanket for some close friends of the family, when they had their first baby girl.
I didn´t want it to be too "girlish", so I chose purple and gray colors instead of pink.
