Colors of the Week 2 / Haftanın Renkleri 2

(Türkçesi için sayfanın en altındaki 2 numaralı daireye tıklayınız.)

Hello world,

How are you? I’ve been busy with taking photos, uploading them on my Etsy Shop, learning new stitches from my new crocheting book and thinking about a cardigan. And other ordinary things like working, eating, talking, feeling, watching. listening, sleeping… Boring stuff. Let’s begin talking about colorful things!

A collage of all the photos below

1) Earrings and Etsy

The ear wires I ordered weeks ago finally arrived this week so I immediately began taking photos. Well, not ‘immediately’ but let’s say ‘at the first time I could see a little bit of sunshine’. Here they are:

White and orange colored flower shaped crocheted earrings with metal ear wires. I made them! :)
White-yellow colored, flower shaped crocheted earrings with metal ear wires. I made them too!
A photo from my Etsy shop. 7 couples of crocheted earrings with colors of yellow, light orange, orange, red, green, magenta pink, rouge pink and with metal ear wires with a text in the middle of the photo saying Color o'Clock. I made them all! There

I have some more earrings with different designs (not flowers). But I should practice with different colors before I put them on the shop. I’ll let you know when they are ready:) Here check out my Etsy shop: ColoroClock. I have earrings and headbands so far.

2) Zigzag Scarf

I finished the scarf I told you last week. I used one ball of acrylic cake yarn (100 gr, 290 m) and I could make 185 cm long and 13 cm wide scarf with it. I want to sell this one too because I really have enough scarves:) Here it is:

3) Learning New Stitches and the Idea of a Cardigan

As I told you in the previous post, I have a new book to learn/practice new stitches. Last week an idea popped up in my head: I’m gonna make 10 cm X 10 cm squares (or rectangles about that size) with those stitches from the book. They are all gonna be different stitches of course and that way I won’t have to wait until I start a new project for each pattern to learn. And at the end, I’ll make a cardigan out of all these small pieces. I was willing to make a thin cardigan for a long time but I couldn’t find the right pattern. Now I’ll try to make my own pattern. We’ll see. It’ll probably take some time. I could make only 9 squarish pieces in one week.

9 blackish granny squares placed on a red surface. They are all made with different stitches.

I’ll need many many more squares. How do I know that? I measured one of my favorite sweatshirts and here is my gorgeous drawing:)

A technical drawing of a cardigan on a paper with sizes written in metric system. A ball of blackish yarn, measuring tape and a pencil are on the paper.

I’ll check other granny square cardigan designs. I’m thinking of something that is not very loose, because I want to be able to wear it in the winter too (under my coat). But I want it to be wide enough to let my body breath. So I have a very specific image of this cardigan in my mind but of course nobody knows what’s gonna happen! I’ll just follow the yarn!:)

That’s it for this week. I hope you enjoyed reading this! If you have any ideas please let me know below in the comments (especially about the cardigan, I need some inspiration:).

Stay colorful until next post!
Love,
Husna
