Are you in the mood for Christmas yet?
Well I am! Especially after I received a box full of these little 10 gram mini balls in 100 colors! They are called Must-have Minis by Yarn & Colors. You can get them at Woolwarehouse here, they ship worldwide.
I turned them into these cute little Christmas bells.

Let me show you how!
So I used 100% mercerized cotton by Yarn and Colors with hook 2,5mm.
The abbreviations are US terms.
st stitch
ss slip stitch
ch chain
sc single crochet
hdc half double crochet
dc double crochet
tr treble crochet

Are you going to hang them in your tree as ornaments or are you making a garland?

South Africa Memories Shawl

This summer I was on tour in South Africa with the sweet girls from Be Inspired to teach how to make the flower shawl you see above in the pictures. You can still buy kits for this shawl here.

During one of the workshops I met Vinni from Vinnis Colours and spend my last day at her house chatting and making plans all day! She is the sweetest little lady and makes the nicest cotton and hand-dyes it in the most beautiful colors. She gave me lots of mini skeins of her yarn in all colors to play with and now I am madly in love with her yarn!
While I was working on the shawl I was thinking back of all the joy I had in South Africa so I called this shawl SA Memories Shawl.
You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop or Ravelry Shop.
