Crocheted Tunic

The first attempt (knitted) was a total failure, the second (again: knitted) was better but sagging and not at all what I had wanted it to be.

The third time’s the charm! Here is the tunic I have made: It’s crocheted and has the granny squares Catherine (mother to one of J‘s classmates) wanted to have. I managed to weave in the last ends in time to give it to her on her birthday. And – yay! – it fits her.

Maybe I can convince the happy owner to take a picture when wearing it for all of you to see.

Thank you again for your suggestions. (At the end, I would come up with my own pattern).


In Germany Pentecost is a holiday. There is Pentecost Sunday and Pentecost Monday. That makes it a three-day weekend and we were very much looking forward to it.

35°C outside (that is 95°F), enough ice cream in the freezer, and my parents visiting made up for J‘s root canal treatment (…) on Friday.

It feels like I didn’t knit or crochet that much lately (not to mention my orphaned blog …). Progress is ever so slow … Obviously, when it comes to knitting 35°C is the upper limit (for me). However, I am a lizard – I love the warmth!

An A-shape tunic, made of cotton yarn, is (one of four projects) on my needles right now.
