Granny Crochet Table Cover

Mixing different colors of yarn has always been my style of crocheting. To me, Crochet is all about colors and that too vibrant Spring kind of colors, which really brighten up any room for any occasion.

For my next crochet project, I decided to make a Granny Crochet Table Cover.  I thought of using up some of the yarn I’d purchased at one of the shops in Salzburg (Oh! A review of our visit to Salzburg is due, next week maybe?). “Bravo Originals” is the name of the brand and they cost me just Eur 1.00 per 50 g! I bought balls of yarn in pink, blue (light and dark), green, red and yellow colors.

 I used a crochet needle of size 3.5mm for this project and followed this pattern.

It took me almost a month to finish this project! (You really don`t need that much time, but I had some lazy days in between!)

Once I completed the squares, I placed them in the order I wanted before joining them. I hand-stitched the squares together.

I felt too lazy to give it a border as shown in the website. And my sister suggested making pom poms all around the edges. Now what in the world is a Pom Pom in crocheting?? I have no idea!

So I decided to keep it as it is for now. I LOVE it! I hope you do too… 🙂

“What we are ………….” Wednesday! (March 1, 2017)

We’d like to share what we are doing this Wednesday, hopefully, every Wednesday from hereon, as a way of documenting our Everyday Life. Hope you like reading such posts!

Here’s what Madhurya had to say:

Reading: “The Woman on the Orient Express” by Lindsay Ashford. (Thanks to Manasa`s review, I felt inspired to read this book).
Watching: The weather turn wet and gloomy due to the rain and storm!
Eating: Mostly Bananas and Guavas!! Of course the regular meals as well.
Making: Plans for my next Crochet project.
Wishing for: The long weekend to come sooner.
Learning: To keep myself calm at work.
Thinking: Of singing more often just to keep my mood light and happy!
Listening: To the pitter-patter of raindrops.
Loving: Our morning drive to work; listening to nice music while discussing our plans for the day!
Here’s what I had to say:
Reading: “Instruments of the Angels”- A Waters Dark and Deep- Book 1, by Monica Leonelle- A book I received for free to post a review on Amazon.
Watching: the kids get super-excited about their grandparents’ marriage anniversary.
Eating: Mostly salads and Yogurt-based dishes, as the temperatures soar.
Making: a new set of resolutions, blog posts and journal ideas, as it is the beginning of another month.
Wishing for: my cold and sore throat to subside so I can be fully myself again.
Learning: the basics of sewing through this free mini class.
Thinking: of ways to brighten our day (not literally, as it is too bright outside already!) and add some cheer to others’ lives this summer, as the heat threatens to sap us!
Listening: to birdsong outside every morning, as we drink our second round of Tea upstairs, on our new outdoor sofa set.
Loving: these long, lazy summer days and not having to send the kids to school in a rush.
Love,
Madhurya & Manasa.
