This week is the last week of May, and during the day temperatures around 18 degrees are normal. This week we had temperatures around 11 degrees, and especially in the morning it was almost freezing. So for the first walks with Fleur I wrapped my winter scarf around my neck. I so long for Spring!! In the meantime the Lilac in front of the window I’m sitting next to is blooming so beautiful and the sky is blue (between the clouds that is).
Because I ran out of yarn for my hexagon blanket, I had to think of something else, and I have a lot of leftovers from Drops Delight, in all kinds of colours.
For a long time I had an idea about using little squares. That’s all I’m going to tell for now. I hope to show you more next week.
But something which had been bothering me for a long time was how to finish a crochet round neatly, if you have to change colour. I’ve seen lots of tutorials and video’s on YouTube, but nothing really appealed to me. Until now. I’ll show how it is done:
First you crochet your round (or square) until the last stitch:
Now you cut the yarn and pull the tail through the last loop:
Thread your needle and make a stitch in the top of the first dc:
Pull yarn through, and make a stitch in the back loop of the last stitch:
Now you have a perfectly closed round.
That’s it for now. The next thing I’m going to look for is a way of attaching yarn in a nice way; I’m not so fond of the chain stitches to start a round with. If I ever find something, I’ll let you know.
