Friday! We stay in bed and count down until weekend starts with the FREE PATTERN for this cozy 'Rice Seed Blanket'!
You don't have to decide how large your blanket should be in the end - just crochet ahead and stop whenever you feel it's big enough. The 'Rice Seed Blanket' is worked in a round by round like a giant granny square. This gives you the possibility to enlarge it any size.
A brave little origami-gurumi paper boat set sail. It's FIETE ready to discover the world and curious to find out the truth about the old fishermen’s stories. His adventure started right away, when Oleg the giant squid came up from the depth. He wrapped his giant tentacles around the little boat and drag Fiete under into the deep sea. A swarm of crochet jellyfish crossed and Fiete took advantage of the short distraction to free himself from the tight grip of the giant squid. Completely drenched he escaped to the shore of a tiny but sunny island.
As soon as that strange creature skipped from our garden, we admired the colorful eggs that it had left for us in a small nest underneath the Hazel bush. These eggs looked so weird that we soon started to discuss, what would probably hatch out of them. Dirk was convinced that these must be Rainbow Dragon eggs (an extremely rare species, which is native only to Lalylaland).
But even in the relevant literature we could not find any useful, hint. So we had to practice patience... Full of curiosity we came together today to watch the first of the three extraordinary creatures hatching from its egg!
Thank y'all for your extremely motivating likes and comments on my lalylala book to come! ❤️ Many of you have asked for more details, so here are some facts: Release will be in AUTUMN 2017. It will be published in UK first, but ...
Phew! To keep this secret over MONTHs was really the hardest thing! But now the work is almost done and I can finaly give you a little peek of what I’m currently working on. It's my first AMIGURUMI BOOK! Woohoo!
Let's start the countdown! It's 15 days left until the year isover, and we wanted to clear away some old clutter as we found a yellowed folder with a TOP SECRET label in a dusty box. Yippie! There is nothing better than sharing secrets with friends, and today we are going to blab the best best kept secret of Lalylaland!
Of course, nobody knew it because of the total secrecy, but Lalylaland was actually the first spacefaring nation! At the very dawn of the Space Age we’ve built an ultra light rocket Ziggy, using our unique twisted fiber technology, and long before space monkeys and dogs we’ve launched the world’s first lalylanaut Luzie the Lucky Cat on her mission to convey our greetings to the universe. The brave kitty visited every planet and tirelessly waved and meowed best wishes, and everybody she met waved back – the Spiders from Mars waved even all 8 legs as they saw Ziggy approaching!
I ever wish, I would live in a yarn store … oh wait, in fact I DO :)
