October projects

 

October passed so quickly. I came back from Poland. I reopen my Etsy shop . I had to reorganized our London flat again – my 14 months son is curious fast-moving toddler. He demands lots of attention. I was really busy, yet I found some time for knitting and macrame. Mornings, during my child’s nap and evenings, when Max is already in bed is the only time when I can craft. I wish evenings are longer.

Wall hanging.

My favourite project is macrame+weaving wall hanging. This wall decor isn’t very big but I really like it. I call it “Greece”. Reminds me of Parthenon and suits of  Greek  Presidential Guard (Evzones).

Christmas decorations

In October I was also working on some Christmas decorations. I made few macrame Christmas trees. They are really cute. Easy to knot. Some of them I decorate with beads. They perfect as a little Christmas gift. They will look lovely on Christmas tree or in the window as a Christmas decoration.

Last year my house was decorated with crocheted snowflakes, this year I will add some macrame Christmas trees.

I also made set of crochet Christmas stocking. I bought “The Winter Crochet Book” magazine with many lovely winter patterns. I have to say crocheting that tiny items is not my thing. But I like the result.

Knitted shrug

I started this shrug…I think in the end of August. I was working with lovely wool blend yarn.

version with sleeves

I made large rectangle, seamed sides, knitted sleeves and ending. And I didn’t like it.

I decide to undo sleeves. I wish I made just regular cardigan from that yarn. Or shawl.

I will probably still do some modification to that shrug.

I always love to create but when I was pregnant handcrafting become my favourite thing to do to relax and express myself. I love to learn new techniques, so I practice with tapestry crochet, tunisian crochet, filet crochet. My latest obsession is macramé and tapestry weaving. On my blog you will find various craft projects and patterns. I'd like to share them with you.
