Mushrooms and Toadstools

SU1Did you loved my autumn cardigan with the toadstools? I have put the pattern of the toadstools online You can find the pattern here >>>> Toadstool Pattern page.

The pattern was designed for the extended parts of my Sophie’s Universe Blanket. The band is crocheted in rows, so it is suitable to incorporate in a cardigan or sweater.

An other band I designed is the butterfly band. You can find the pattern here >>>> Butterfly Band pattern page

I hope many sweaters and cardigans will be made with butterflies, mushrooms and toadstools this autumn.

Greetings Elzeblaadje

Sophie’s Universe 3

vlinder1About 2 months ago I started with the Sophie’s Universe CAL. It was a lot of work to catch up with the CAL, but now I am already at part 17 and the Cal is almost done. It was a lot of crocheting, but it was also a lot of fun to do. The colorful bands of flowers and the nice stitches make the Sophie’s Universe a very nice work to do.

There was only one band I didn’t liked very much, the butterfly band from part 14. So I made an alternative band. I tried 3 butterflies before I found a nice one that fitted in the Sophie. It was also a challenge to design the butterflies in such a way that the band fitted exactly in the Sophie. I succeeded very well and I like the band now better.

Because people asked me about the pattern I have written it down. First in Dutch, available on Elzeboom and from now it is ready in English and soon available. Luckily my SIL advised me on the language of the pattern and one user about the pattern, so I hope everyone will be satisfied with the result and find no difficulties making the Butterfly Band.

Fairy in the garden

Garden butterflySometimes you make a photograph, strange and weird. You can not believe it is what it is, a common butterfly or a fairy. Who can tell the difference. Is it a lucky shot or was there really a fairy dancing on the flowers of the catmint. The butterfly can inspire me te make with cotton yarn a  beautiful fairy for the fairy garden.

greetings, Elzeblaadje
