My shrugs

About two month ago I started two shrugs that I finally finished yesterday. The first one is a dark red color. I think it is a burgandy. I used my fingers as a hook (finger crochet)  to do the body but you could also use a 12 or 15mm crochet hook and a small crochet hook 3.5mm was used for the neck and border. It is a fluffy or fantasy beige yarn.
It took 8balls of 50gr of that beige color to get this done and I hooked about 5 DC in each segment. the burgandy is a yarn from Berroco I think but can´t rememenber.

Another shrug but the top is done with fpdc and bpdc wich is almost the equivalent of the ribbing stitch in knitting.

Lana de borrego

At the beginning of May, I spent a week-end in a very small but beautiful city called San Miguel Allende in Mexico and during my tour at the Aurora Plaza I purchased the following yarns

It is wool from lambs although the balls were not wrapped or packed but I talk to the owner of the store and she confirms what I already suspected. They might weight no more then 60 grams but yet I have to measure the yardage. Suppose I will do so when the time comes to choose a pattern.

Cubrecama multicolor

Estuve trabajando en un nuevo set de granny squares durante el fin de semana para un cubrecama. Los colores elegidos no son en realidad a mi gusto pero el caso pidio que saliera de mi zona de comfort y esto se debio a que en la habitacion de invitados no entra el sol para nada y me imagino que seria mejor entonces elegir unos colores mas vivos.
He elegido los estambres de Red Heart Soft en los colores Uva, Rosado, Tangerine, Guacamole y Negro. El estambre negro sera para la union de todos los granny squares.

Tendre que tejer 64 granny squares y son de tamaƱo 10x10 pulgadas.

Tengo 26 granny listo, so 38 more to go.

Blusa Tangerine

Ayer pude terminar una blusita que empece hace unas tres semanas. Cambie un poco el patron al hacer el cuello menos alto y tambien quite las mangas largas. Use el color Tangerine 4422 de Red Heart soft con un gancho de 4mm. Era un patron muy facil.
No entiendo porque la photo aparece de este color aunque he tratato de tomar de diferentes angulos.
