Lately I haven't posted updates about my WIPS, just finished items / patterns ๐Ÿค” So here's an update!
.
I have two new ideas for my special series dedicated to people with the same condition as me (like this Miss Mille Scarf on the picture).
.
Besides that I have two projects ready to be finished which I designed one year ago. One is a shawl and the second is a Christmas project which I couldn't finish in time last year so I postponed the release to this year. It's going to be unique and fun, I promise๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
.
When do you guys start working on christmas projects? October? Or maybe even July? All year long? Never? ๐Ÿ˜„

* Miss Mille Scarf * new free pattern on wilmade.com! Link in bio ๐Ÿ’•
.
Finally I can share the 4th crochet pattern dedicated to my 'extended family' (people with the same condition as me).
.
Mille is 6 y/o and lives in Denmark. Mille is very good at roller skating and even won the 7th place in the local championships.
.
I used a gradient yarn cake with blue, purple and pink colors based on her beautiful roller skating outfit.
.
The pattern is beginner-friendly: the scarf is made with double crochet stitches and the diamond shaped overlay is made with surface slip stitches.
.
Denmark is a 7 hour drive by car from my parents' home in Germany, which makes Mille one of the closest ones living near me. Can't wait to visit her some day ๐Ÿ’•

I just finished this fluffy shawl which I started ONE YEAR AGO ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
.
With this yarn it's very hard to see the stitches. I often had to frog ๐Ÿธ because I accidentally skipped stitches or worked two stitches in the same stitch. I got frustrated and started working on other things.
.
After one year I picked it up again and finished it ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ‘ It's definitely one of my favorites now, it's so warm and soft๐Ÿ’•
.
Tell me, what is your longest WIP and how long did it take to finish?
.
Bwhaha wat een rare vraag eigenlijk als je het naar het Nederlands vertaalt ๐Ÿ˜œ

Oooh I wish you could all feel how soft this yarn is. It's so fluffyyyy!๐Ÿฆ„
.
The yarn is not really meant for crochet, but I still wanted to try it. I think this was the hardest project I've ever worked on, even though it's a simple pattern ๐Ÿ˜‚

The busiest season has started and this year it's double busy for me.. because we're getting married in November (exactly three months from now)! ๐Ÿ‘ฐ I think I have mentioned it sometime before, but we're getting married abroad.. in exciting Las Vegas! ๐Ÿค— โœˆ๏ธ .
.
We now officially have picked a location, and I can tell you, it's not the typical Vegas wedding chapel, Elvis or Drive Thru! ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you want to know more, you can read the blog I just posted on wilmade.com (link in bio or swipe up in my story).

Tell me, where did you get married? Anyone else who got married in Vegas - or somewhere else abroad? Any advice? โ™ฅ๏ธ

Thank you all so much for your positive reponse on my new dress! My dear mommy was kind enough to model it for me - I think she did great! ๐Ÿ’ (wow, her flowers really look like the emoticon haha)

I really love the simplicity and details of the collar and already made a second dress for myself! It took me four days, it works up quite fast. I used black and red wool, perfect for Christmas ๐Ÿ˜

Wish my teeth were as happy as this plushie.. I've got a big infection which didn't go away with the usual treatment, so now I'm on antibiotics and painkillers.
.
I'm freakin' afraid of the dentist, so things like this stress me out. Luckily crochet works like therapy, I've got a simple project on my hook which distracts my thoughts a little ๐Ÿ˜š
.
Wishing you all a great weekend! โ™ฅ๏ธ
P.s. This cutie is a free pattern on wilmade.com

Look at the difference.. isn't it amazing how 1 simple stitch can look so different on both sides?
.
I like both of 'em and that's why I used this stitch in my latest free pattern, the reversible skirt ๐Ÿค—
.
Dear @emmeclairecrochet and @blagecrochetdesign asked me what I'm doing now (#WIDN). I honestly think I've never had so many WIPS at the same time as I do now. I'm about to finish a few projects (mostly scarfs, shawls). And.. in between mom and I are working on my wedding dress ๐Ÿ‘ฐ

Wanna share what you are working on @knothing_usual & @frederikacreates?

Ty all so much for your lovely comments on my dress! ๐Ÿ’ƒ .
.
The pattern is for any size! Here's a pic of my lovely mom (size L) trying on my dress in size S. The yarn was stretchy enough to fit in, but it looks a bit shorter and more tight on her than the regular size L version of this dress. ๐Ÿค—

Today I witnessed something incredible: 10,000 crochet blankets combined together creating one big blanket! A total of 2 million squares are used and it measures an astonishing 30,000m2 /323,000 ft2. With this blanket a world record was set and it's officially the 'largest crochet blanket in the world' ๐Ÿ‘

Also, I recorded my very first live video on Instagram while walking on the blanket today! So scary to go live, but I really wanted to share some footage of this amazing blanket ๐Ÿ™ˆ You can still watch the video in my story the next 24 hours! โ˜บ๏ธ
