Birthday again

Today is my birthday, my favourite day of the year. Today I am free from work and just doing things I would like to.
I am quite satisfied with my 28th year. I was working a lot on myself to become a better person, spent quality time with my loved ones, I started to work out three times in a week, went to slightly more eco-friendly and took care of our health and well-being.
This is my last birthday in my twenties, although my age is just a number and I don't realize this year as a turning point or something very meaningful border, I have some goals for the next twelve month.

This year I am planning to...

 work more on myself both physically and mentally
 be a better wife (I will cook more)
 take part in a summer music festival (I have never been to any and I can't let my twenties to go without a great festival!)
 visit a country I have never been to (preferably some place in south)
 travel to the annual pilgrimage to Csíksomlyó, Transylvania (I am not Catholic, but thousands of Hungarians going there in every year and I must feel that spirit)
 do less and live more
 pray more and worry less

Today I have a special skein of handspun and hand-dyed yarn to celebrate:

Wish you all a lovely July 4th!


  1. Wish you a Very Happy Birthday, Hanni!! :) nice yarn and nice basket too!!
    I liked your goals and I always try to achieve that second goal. I feel I have reduced my cooking time owing to crafty time and cook only what is extra special cuisines ....I need to change myself on that.

  2. Happy Birthday!
    Funny, my youngest son has his birthday also today (he's now 18 years)
    What a lovely young age do you have!
    Enjoy your day and make something special of this liveyear (and oof the next, and the next after it ;-) )

  3. Happy Birthday¡¡¡¡

  4. Buon Compleanno Hanni!!!!!!
    You are still so young and so wise!!!! ;oD
    xxxxx Ale

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)

Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.

You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
