International Crochet Day

Hello dear friends,
I hope you are having a relaxed Wednesday.

A big thank you to all of you who liked my tutorial and sent me your encouraging comments. And thanks for the birthday wishes too. 

Let us meet our new friends;
         Jee Q from Learning to Write (some lovely crochet projects here)
         Chiflu at  La mi cocinuca ( yummy baked goodies and crochet too)
         Girlie de los reyes  from Girlie's Crochet (lots of crochet patterns, tutorials and stitches)
  and Moush ( please send me link if you have a blog,dear).
Welcome aboard.

Today I don't have any finished projects to show. But the actual reason I am here is to tell you that today September 12th is International Crochet Day ! I just learned about this at Petals to Picots. So do pop over there to know more. 

Go ahead and celebrate - start a new project, buy a new book/yarn or teach someone to crochet.

I am working on my very first baby cardigan and bonnet with a lovely Watermelon color yarn. 
I have never crocheted anything that can be worn and I am praying it turns out okay.

This is a free pattern from Free You can find it in the widget in my right sidebar if you scroll through it.

Wish me luck for my first baby project.

See you later, crocheters. Ta-ta
Love xxx
