CAL 2014

I finally made a decision to be involved with CAL 2014, from a face book group called Dutch Crochet, a Granny a day 2013.  I had been looking at all the nice blankets (dekens in Dutch) all the ladies had made.  I have to say it all just make my hand itchy to also join in, but i wasn't sure until just a few days ago.

I have to say, I made the right decision not only to join the CAL but also to dare my self in posting the few rows that I have crocheted last yesterday.  And oh boy, what a surprise I got from all the ladies!!!!
I am so pleased, they are all so supportive, knowing that this group is in Dutch a language that I have learnt in my teen, even though I use it in talking with my mom at home occasionally.  It's a great feeling, when you are around people with the same passion.  and you know you can count on them for advice and support.

Here is the few rows I crocheted yesterday .

I crochet with hook 3,5 and 4, acrylic yarn.

It has been a good day ....

Have a nice Sunday ....

Windmill Filet Crochet

Finally it's finish .... my first windmill filet crochet, which in the magazine is made as wall decoration.  It is a group of blocks with Dutch scenery.  I am busy with the second windmill, a bit different than this one ....

Still thinking what I will make this into?  A pillow?  A bag with linen lining?

This is the magazine where the pattern can be found

Happy Sunday ....
