Blogi esimene aastapäev!

Aastapäev

Täna aasta tagasi 15. novembril 2016. aastal avaldasin ma oma esimese blogipostituse siin blogis. Kuigi ma jagasin selles esimeses postituses kõigest tulevikuvisiooni ja plaane seoses selle blogiga ja esimese tõsiselt heegeldamisega seotud postituse avaldasin ma alles paar kuud hiljem 5. veebruaril 2017. aastal, arvan ma siiski, et täna on kena päev blogi aastapäeva tähistamiseks.

Blog’s 1st Anniversary!

Anniversary

Today a year ago on the 15th November 2016 I published my 1st blog post. Although I just shared my future visions related with this blog on that post and the first real crochet-related blog post was published several months later on the 5th of February 2017, I still think it is a nice day to celebrate the blog’s first anniversary today.

And in relation to that, I decided to share some blog statistics today. Because at least I like to keep an eye on it. This data that I share is taken this Monday. First of all, I use free WordPress plan and although I have thought of upgrading it, I think I should wait a bit more with that. I thought to mention that because I think it might influence the views just because thanks to that my posts don’t come up on the 1st pages of the Google search…or at least something like that I have heard.

Teistmoodi padjakatted (Tuniisitehnika)

Täna kirjutan ma ühest uuest mustrist, mille Youtube video abiga selgeks õppisin ja selle tulemusena valminud padjakatetest. Idee pärineb taaskord sotsiaalmeedias jagatud postitusest (hetkel ülesse ei leidnud), kus jällegi oli näidatud ainult lühikest klippi valmimisprotsessist.

Stylish pillow covers greated using the Tunisian crochet smock stitch

Today I will write about one stitch that I learned to crochet thanks to one YouTube video and about the pillow covers that were created as a result. This idea originates once again from one viral video that I saw in my Facebook feed pretty often (sadly I couldn’t find it right now), once again there was a short video clip that didn’t explain much and so I started to look for more information.

Heegeldatud korvid! 2. osa! Järgmised 9 korvi!

Lõpuks on kätte jõudnud hetk, kus saan veidi blogida. Lubasin juba augusti lõpus heegeldatud korvide 1. osa postituses, et jagan peagi veidi erilisema disainiga heegeldatud korve, kuid sellele järgnes pikk vaikus. Seda osalt seetõttu, et minu esimene doktorantuuriaasta läks nii tempokalt käima, et lihtsalt ei tekkinud vabu hetki ei heegeldamiseks ega ka blogimiseks, kuid peamiselt seetõttu, et ma tahtsin seekord korvide sisse kanga õmmelda ja see osutus suuremaks peavaluks kui ma eales arvata oleksin osanud. 

Crocheted baskets! Part 2! 9 more baskets with different designs!

Finally, after a while, the moment has arrived when I have managed to organize my time so that I can blog a bit. I mentioned already in August in my previous basket related blog post where I shared my first 11 crocheted baskets that soon I will share some baskets that are with a bit different designs. But then a long period of silence followed. It was partly because of the start of my first year as a PhD student which was accompanied by a lot of new responsibilities and tasks and I couldn’t find time to crochet or to write a blog post. But mainly I postponed writing because I wanted to add a fabric into the baskets and it turned out to be much harder task than I would have ever thought.

Heegeldatud ümmargused kõrvarõngad!

Viimaks on kätte jõudnud päev, kus ma jagan oma aasta tagasi juunis valminud kahte kõrvarõngapaari. Minu arvates on need kõrvarõngad üsna kergesti valmistatavad. Seda aga juhul kui kasutusel on õige suurusega heegelnõela ja heegelniidi jämeduse kombinatsioon. Kõige keerulisem osa võib olla hoopiski materjali hankimine, kuid õnneks ka see etapp ei ole väga kulukas, nagu peagi allpool näha võib. 

Crocheted ball earrings!

Today it’s time to share some earrings I made a year ago in June 2016. I would say that they are very easy to make if you use the proper hook size and a yarn width combo. The hardest part is to buy everything else that is needed but luckily those things are not very expensive as you will see in a minute. 

Satsilõngast heegeldatud satsilised seelikud

Täna kirjutan ma kahest seelikust, mis valmisid kahele pisikesele neiule. Nende heegeldamiseks otsustasin ma kasutada satsilõnga, kuna teadsin ühe varasema satsiseeliku heegeldamise näitel, et satside heegeldamine on väga aeganõudev ja nägin satsilõnga kasutamises võimalust seda protsessi kiirendada. Samuti olin ma huvitatud alternatiivsete viiside leidmisest selle lõnga kasutamiseks. Varem olen ma mäletatavasti teinud satsisalle ja padjakatteid, kuid tokke on mul ootel veel mitmeid.

Crocheted layered skirts using ruffle/sashay yarn!

In today’s post, I will share two skirts that I made for two young girls. The reason why I decided to use sashay yarn was that I know that crocheting layered skirt is very time-consuming as I mentioned in another skirt related post. I saw that as a way to make the process faster and easier. Also, I saw it as another alternative way to use that type of yarn as I have made scarves and pillow covers with that yarn before and I still have some left to use.
