Leftovers - Garnreste


Dear friends,


I've got this box full of started skeins and leftovers.
  

It's absolutely perfect to bounce off ideas. I did start fiddling around with the yarn dreaming of something flowery, but never expected this unreflected bit of crochet would turn into this:

or this...


or this...


or these...


Haven't got a clue what I'm going to do with these grannies but they are making me happy...


I'll keep in touch!




Liebe Freunde,


ich habe eine Box voller angebrochener Garnknäuel bzw. Garnreste.


Diese ist perfekt, um einfach etwas neues auszuprobieren. Ich hatte zwar vage etwas blumiges im Sinn, als ich mit dem gedankenlosen Herumspielen anfing. Daher war ich baff, als das dabei herauskam:


Und das...


und das...


und diese...


Ich habe zwar absolut keine Ahnung, was ich mit den Grannies anfangen soll, aber sie machen gute Laune...


Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden!

    1. Sure, I will. Have a lot on my plate at the time though and I definitely must wait till the sun is out again! As you can see the pics are rather dull because of the rain.
      Happy crafting,
      Marjan

  3. They look fantastic! And they are making me happy too :-)
    Perhaps a new blanket? A cushion or a bag?
    Would all be terrific, I really like your flowers!
    Take care,

    1. Hello Teresa,
      thank you very much! I just crocheted along, no pattern involved. The flowers were rather easy, but it was quite a challenge to turn them into grannies.
      Thank you for hosting The Really Crafty Link Party!

    1. As the flowery grannies are such fun to make I surely will write the pattern. I've got a lot to do at work though so just be on the lookout, the pattern will follow as soon as possible!
      Happy crocheting,

    1. Hello Mary,
      this is indeed a happy box, but sometimes it's a frustrating one too (when I keep trying and trying and nothing I try turns out nice).
      Have a nice weekend,
      Marjan

    1. Hallo Katrin,
      danke, für die schönen Worte. Übrigens, ich hatte eine Häkelpause von ca. 19 Jahren (und dachte auch, ich könne es nicht mehr), aber sobald ich eine Häkelnadel in Händen hielt, lief es wie von alleine, also: Einfach mal trauen!
      Schönes Wochenende,
      Marjan
