Würde mich jemand nach meinem Hobby fragen, würd ich ganz automatisch immer "Stricken" sagen. Nur leider, leider, stimmt das schon eine ganze Weile nicht mehr. Ich bin im absoluten Häkelfieber und während ich früher Häkeln zwar schon immer gern für Zwischendurch mochte (vor allem an heißen Sommertagen), rühr ich jetzt die Stricknadeln kaum noch an.
If someone would ever ask me about my favorit hobby, I would always say automaticall that I love to knit. And this was really true for many many years, but now I completely and fullhearted switched over to crochet. I have always liked to crochet a bit, small items like hot pads or cushion covers or even blankets as inbetween projects of knittings mostly. I was always glad when a crochet item was finally done and I could switch over again to my beloved knitting needles. How much this has changed now.
Und das Beste an meiner neuen Leidenschaft ist, daß es jetzt so viele wunderbare Häkelblogs gibt - oder andersrum: diese wunderbaren Häkelblogs haben mein Häkelfieber wahrscheinlich erst so richtig befeuert und verursacht. Heut möcht ich euch ein paar davon zeigen, nur falls ihr sie nicht sowieso schon kennt, und der Einfachheit halber geht´s in English weiter (bitte zu entschuldigen!!!):
One of the most thrilling things for me was to discover so many beautiful crochet blogs lately and I so much want to share some of them with you, just in case you don´t already know them:
Cherry Heart is one of my absolutely favorits. I so much love her choice of colours, bright but not overbright, just the perfect shades which would look gorgeous in my home, too. And this cushion is for sure on my crochet-to-do-list. What a beauty!
I am nearly sure you all know Bunny Mummy, I am especially in love with her hexagon-cushion and I think it would also make a beautiful little bag.
Coco Rose finished already the blanket which was love at first sight for me when I discovered Nicki Trenchs new book, the yarn from my post before I have bought alredy to make a cushion cover with that design for our kitchen. Lovely, isn´t it?
Haken en meer surely makes the most pretty round cushions, which you could see the moment you are opening her inspiring blog.
Le monde de sucrette has a lot of free tutorials at the side bar of her blog, so very generous and so many more gorgeous crochet items to plans.
I so much admire and love how Meme Rose matches her fleamarket finds with her crochet, what a wonderful combination of crochet cushions and tea cups in the same colourway! Wish I would have this luck on my next fleamarket stroll, too.
And last but in no way least Little Wollie, who didn´t only makes the most funny and happy softies, who is also so very generous to give us all even a free tutorial to make by ourselves one of her lovlies in one two parts, oh no, she is making also one of the most beautiful blankets. Are some of you remembering my own bullerby-blanket? Well, this was just a very poor version of this blanket and yes, yes, yes, I dearly want to make such a beauty, too.
Oh my, so many great crochet blogs and so many inspirations. I only should stop now to browse them and start the making. If only this wouldn´t be so very hard to do, all the pictures the colours the writing the explainings the inspirations are too wonderful to leave them for more than a couple of minutes.
PS: Die Probleme mit blogger hab ich zwar noch nicht gelöst, ich dank euch aber sehr für die Hilfe und werd weiter daran arbeiten! Ich schreib jetzt dann Kommentare auch immer anonym, nur daß ihr euch nicht wundert!
PS: my problems with blogger aren´t solved already, but I will try to get over them soon. If I am commenting, I will do this now un-signed, just in case you are wondering, but it seems the only way that blogger allows me to comment.
