Crocheting and Cleaning

Hello again! I had such a busy but great weekend! I didn't have any time to blog! We cleaned out our attic and made a little space where I can make a craft corner! How excited am I ?!? It's very empty right now, there aren't even curtains! But that's one thing I love about it! It's like a blank canvas! Last couple of days I've just been dreaming of how I'm going to set it up and decorate it.. Oh what a wonderful life! ^_^


As for my crochet it's going well but slowly. I'm still working on my fall blanket and it's already big enough that I can cuddle up under it while I'm working on it! And the wool is really chunky and heavy which I like since I've never worked with such heavy yarn before. Here are some pictures of it in progress:


 I like the color combination I chose for it, though the brown is a bit darker in the pictures!


And it's literally the biggest project I've ever crocheted so I'll be very proud and happy once it's done!

And I'm also working on my Big Blue Scarf again. I hid it in the closet for some time since I really didn't like the look of it. Then I frogged the thing and started over, this time working in the width instead of the length. This way the multi-coloured yarn came out much nicer, but I'm not very convinced this'll be one of my favourite pieces.. I'm not sure whether I even dare to give it as a christmas present! This is what it looks like now:


And I have a question for you all. I've come accross a tutorial of how you can re-use your old clothes and crochet with fabric. After giving it some thought, I was a bit frustrated because I couldn't come up with anything to crochet accept for a rug. So I'd like to ask you: have you every crocheted with fabric? Any ideas on what you can make with it?

I always donate old clothes to charity but I thought maybe I could try it! I'd love it if you'd help me think of something to make!

Have a great rest of the week everybody!

Totally like your projects that are coming along wonderfully! Great color combo in that blanket; what patience you have. So admirable. That scarf is really showing off that neat coloring as well.
You could crochet a scarf or cowl, yeah?
