Happy feet slippers and some new jewelry

I made a pair of slippers for myself this time.

I made 2 soles joined together: one in hemp rope and one it’s wool:IMG_20150106_195336 IMG_20150107_010830 IMG_20150107_081642 IMG_20150106_195311

I used a 6.5 mm hook (M) and worst weight wool.

As you can see the sole has only two rounds: for the smallest size I chained 22 and worked around in dc (to turn work as a circkle: 2 dc in each st). For different sizes add 3 sts for each size. These are 22.5 cm for 23,5 add 3 sts, for 23 add 2, for 24 add 4…

Join together those 2 soles and work 2 rounds of sc.

The stitch I used is Catherine wheel adapted: instead of ch 5 I chained 2 at the second round ( the blue navy one).

In the front part: ch 4 (or 6 for bigger sizes) cluster: *dc in first group of color B, tr in next group, double treble in each next 2 groups, tr in next group, dc in next group*, ch 4 (or 6) and sc in the opposite side.

Lace crochet and tatting (frivolite)

Today it was a Mandala CAL, and I did it! Almost:D I didn’t like last 2 rows so I improvised. And I used cotton… for embroidery and a steel hook,  and I made a pendant:

I am very proud of this one. Looks better then in pictures and I made the toggle myself. (All stores are closed until Monday:)), so I had a good reason to try.)

For this one I watched a video tutorial from Auntie’s beads, but I didn’t have that kind of beads, so I adapted. Maybe next time I will try their pattern.


And some earrings :

A new raid on Internet looking for something cute to make this weekend

Let’s see what I found :pendant or earring

First some beaded earrings or pendant, looks good for me, I will give a try later.

Next, 104563418_large_a99857f2489a89e35972ee2ee12f5273 (1) is a very nice shawl, lace crochet with fans, my favorites.

And the last one for now should be a tatting something I guess, but I prefer this:

0_8f592_c592aefa_XLwith a chart which says it belongs to someone from Russia, but I found it on a brazilian image host site…0_8f595_3de3ee77_L
