Sue invited me to write blogpost, probably because I crocheted a few blocks for the SIBOL-project ...
I am Isolde, just one day away from turning 38, married with 2 girls (8 & almost 4 years old).
My mother learned me how to crochet some 30 years ago. Almost a year ago I started crocheting again. For me it is a way to relax and set my mind free from 'worries' related to work, kids, etc. And hey, the results are quite nice too. I make amigurimi, blankets, bags ... all in happy bright colours.
For SIBOL I used pink and blue from my stash. A bit girly, I know, but I am a girl and have 2 daughters. Maybe that counts for an excuse ...
I just made squares, didn't join a challenge. I like challenges though, but in my free time I'm not so good at deadlines ;-)
I liked to try out some new patterns, now I also had a goal. I used two Jan Eaton books:
• 200 crochet block (1)
• 200 stitches for babyblankets (2)
And here they are:
Clockwise, starting upper left:
• wisteria (1)
• granny square (I just love making granny squares)
• four patch granny (1)
• a simple solid square (also used for for example the babette blanket)
And the other two:
left: harvest moon (2)
and right: warm red (only in different colors, 2)
Hope you like them.
And I am sure that Sue will find a perfect combination with other squares, despite of the girly choice of colors.
