Welcoming December with Crochet

Finally we have stepped into winter months, and I must say that the air has a tiny bit of snow coolness in it coming from Himalayas... Heaters out, we - inside the blankets! :) To tell the truth I do enjoy this time of the year - it brings homely mood, snug under the soft blanket, and cuddles. What can be better? Inspired by all these thoughts, I couldn't wait and crocheted two things, both pretty new to me. I have a wonderful pattern of Doily coaster by Bren G in my collection (click here to see it). I turned it into a Snowflake Doily by using white and cyan yarn.
Just have a look at this shiny cyan thread - so lovely and really easy to work with! I bought it from the usual yarn shop, and it didn't have any marking on it
Second crochet thing I made was something new and unusual to me. I must say thanks to Tammy from
 T's Daily Treasures blog for this unique idea of crochet rocks. She makes many of such with thinner thread, and they look amazing, you can see them on her blog title's picture. When I saw Tammy's Crochet Rocks post, this idea wasn't leaving me for the past few weeks. Fortunately I stumbled upon the gorgeous round stone on the way from office. First I ignored it, but then imagined how it would look in some lacy, "net-y" crochet kind of cozy ... So it ended up in my hand and obtained its cozy wrap today. I considered that the doily and rock looked quiet like a home decor set together. 
Hope your Saturday is as much homely and easygoing as mine. I saw all the lovely things you prepare for coming up holidays, feels good to see all those! :) Have a nice Sunday, my friends!

  9. This is a lovely snowflake design and the shinny flecks in the yarn leave a nice effect. I saw Tammy's crochet rock covers they were good and useful.
    Thanks for visiting.

  11. I adore crocheting and have been since I was 13 years old. The crocheted 'rock' paper weights or whatever they are used for is a brilliant idea.
    Thank you for coming to leave a comment on my blog.
    Nice meeting you!

  15. Love the doily. And thanks for the mention. If I see a nice rock and don't pick it up, I must go back the next day and do so or it haunts me. Ha! Yours turned out great. Best wishes, Tammy

  16. The doily is beautiful - the blue edging makes it very special.

    How lucky you were to find a perfect rock for crochet! We don't have any smooth rocks where I live. :)

    1. Glad you think it was a good idea to add blue to it, Mrs. Micawber :)
      You know I found the rock accidentally, and there are more of them left after the facing of the the paving stone. More to be collect hopefully until they all are not being lost somewhere...:)
