Crochet vlog episode 14 - show notes

Welcome to watch my latest vlog episode! In this episode I`m telling about my latest FO´s which are my last Christmas related decorations, one pair of mittens and crochet related books. And also talking about my new Personal Planner :)

Here is direct link to the episode 14, click here!


This cute angel is part of our winter scenery. (You can check more about this winter scenery from my last episode, click here). This angel pattern is by Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me -blog. Pattern can be found from here. I used Drops Muskat for the head, body and wings. The hook size was 3,5 mm.  The height of the angel is 14 cm.  The angel came out just perfect!

Of course I needed a Christmas star to our winter scenery!
This pattern is my Tanya from The Cozy Knot -blog. The pattern can be found from Ravelry, click here. I used Novita yarn for this star, called 7 brothers. The other yarn is silver metallic yarn by Anchor. I used 5,5 mm hook. The diameter of the star is about 23 cm. 

I have a tradition to make every year new Christmas tree ornament. This year it was this Puffball Gnome Ornament by Alexandra from With Alex -blog.  You can find the pattern free from here
The hat is crocheted with Novita Nalle-yarn and with hook 3,5 mm.  Before Christmas I had little Gnome army in our house :) But now each one of them have a new home!

My last FO is these Briochet Mitts! Finally!! It took too long to finish them. But they came out very nice. The pattern is Briochet Mitts by Deanne Ramsey (@addydae_designs). 

I made the mittens with small size, and  I used 4 mm hook. 
The grey yarn is The Uncommon Thread, tough sock (colorway chrome) and the pink yarn is local brand called nurja (colorway romi ).  I used total of 80 g of yarn. 

I really love this crochet brioche technique! I believe that I am going to use these mittens a lot this winter.

Then some crochet related book. I got some books as Christmas gifts :)
If you have watched by previous episodes, you know that I am little bit crazy about crochet mandalas. You can read about my previous mandalas from here. So I am planning to make many more mandalas for next summer!

After making the crochet Snowman ( see my last post), I remembered how fun the amigurumis are to make! I had to have this book. I have already started to make some of these animals. They are so so cute! I will be talking about these more in the upcoming episodes..

The last thing in this episode is about my new planner. I love calendars and notebooks and one of the best parts of New Year is that you can start new calendar or bullet journal. For the first time I ordered my calendar from Personal Planner. With Personal Planner you can design your calendar yourself, even choosing the front and back cover pictures! Really easy to order and it is not that expensive. 


Next week I´m starting the Attic 24 Dahlia Blanket CAL.  Yay!! Hoping also to crochet some Pica Pau animals and mandalas. Wish me luck and see you again in January.

Happy New Year 2020!!
