New lamp in teapot design

Bought a new lamp at TGR the other day, now hangs above kitchen table. A hilarious kitchen lamp in my opinion.

Christmas Wreaths

Must have been about 8 years old when I made one of these last time.

God Jul is Swedish for Merry Christmas – if you hadn’t guessed already.

Rainbow “Circus” Handbag

Clearly I am snowed in on making bags in this particular model. Having just finished this one I know already one more needs to be made.
The yarn is järbo raggi “circus”. The bamboo handles are from Swedish hobby shop  panduro.

Found this guide on how to make swirly textured granny hexagons and decided to try it out.

Rainbow Summer Poncho with Satin Detail

I made this happy little poncho using a raggi yarn from Järbo – color 21, which I think is called circus. For an adult maybe a “discreet” color scheme may be more appreciated.

PONCHO;

Chained 85 + 3, double crochet in the sixth chain from the hook, chain 3, *skip 3 chains, dc in the next stitch* repeat til end sl around the first 3 chain to complete round.

Round two is basically the same as round one, but with 5 chains between the dc’s, and one dc in the dc of the previous round.

Round 3 – 5 are the same as round 2.

Round 6 – 10 with 6 chains between dc.

Round 11 – 19 with 7 chains between dc.

Round 20 – 29 with 8 chains between dc.

Size is easily adjusted by adding more or reducing number of rounds. By using a thicker yarn less chains between dc would be required. If dc was placed in the chain space instead the pattern can be worked in spiral giving it a different appearance. 

I added a satin detail around the neck for a more complete look.

African flower hexagon handbag

There’s a good guide for the hexagon handbag (as well as tons of other inspiration) here.

Requires little material but still becomes a good size handbag.
