Crochet Snowman

Hello dear friends!

I hope that you are all doing fine.

I am confirming that I am still here, and crocheting… Always!

Actually, I would like to show you my latest creation, a crochet snowman. Ta-dah!

I’ve had this snowman kind of idea in my mind for quite some time, I think I’d even mentioned it in one of my posts here on this blog a couple of years ago, posting a picture of a snowman just being made… Well, that one never got finished, just until now.

Having a little boy now, I thought it could be sweet to make something unique for him this winter.

So, a snowman was born.

And my baby (well, almost 3 years old baby) likes his new toy friend very very much – he just grabs him by the hat and off they go together… 🙂

My plan was to make it rather tall. Using an Aran weight yarn (Red Heart Soft) and a 4.5 mm hook it turned out to be almost 18 inches (45 cm) tall.

In case you wonder about the pattern… I do have it written down on paper, I just need to make slight changes, transfer it to my computer, take step-by-step pictures… and then I will surely share it with you. Once it’s all done I will let you know here on this blog.

And now I am rushing to make 2 more, one the same size, one even bigger. Our living room (which is more like a play room now) just needs them… I think 🙂

Thank you for letting me share!

I am wishing you a lot of peace and joy during this beautiful time of year.

With lots of love,

Petra ♡

 

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Market 2015

Christmas Market 2015

Let the tradition of visiting the Christmas Market continue!

As some of you might have noticed, I am a big fan of Christmas markets. I love visiting them, I love breathing in the atmosphere, I love watching the people there, I love all the smells of great food being prepared, I like the giggling that can be heard all around and I really enjoy seeing the very special products that can only be found at this festive event.

This year, besides all that has been mentioned above, I decided to focus on testing almond punch. Why I chose the almond punch of all the drinks available? Well, that I am not even so sure of but I am so glad I did. I think I might have really loved it in the past and wanted to experience that special taste once again. I tasted a few different kinds and liked the third one best 🙂 (oops). It really was yummy though.

If you feel like it, then you are heartily invited to come and enjoy a few of the special moments of this year’s Christmas Market here in Bratislava, Slovakia with me…

My Favorite Holiday Craft

cup and knitting

Although I show all traits of a crochet person throughout the year, I have noticed that there is a different kind of craft that allures me during the holiday season.

It’s knitting.

Sweet knitting.

I don’t really understand why this keeps happening to me, but I can see clearly that each year around Christmas I find myself working enthusiastically on a new knitting project.

Maybe it’s all about the gorgeous sound of needles at work that adds to the delightfulness of holidays and makes this time even more spectacular. Who knows…

This year I am working on a special project that is making me very, very happy. I can’t wait to show you the result.

And, by the way, do you have any special craft or hobby that calls your name during the holidays? Do share!

With lots of love,

Petra
