YOUR Personal Freeform CAL! - Week 19

You need a personal freeform blanket, too?
Whenever you start it,
I will always post your pictures
on my page Dada Neon Crochet & add it to our CAL photo album!
No time pressure at all!
If you wanna join this freeform adventure you can find the first project here!


 I hope all of you had a great week!
Mine was pretty good!
Lots of new stitches,
one more guest from Scotland!
(Sarah's boyfriend Adam has joined us!) :-)

My brother surprised me with a visit,
this has made me so happy!
It's great to have such lovely support
& we have spent a real good time together! :-)

I just had to create another 20's hat,
I really fell in love with this pattern!
I'm thinking about crocheting me 4 more -
in my beloved neon colours of course!

You can find the free pattern here on Hopeful Honey's page! ;-)
And I could finally present my huge version of
Lookatwhatimade's fantastic Sophie's Garden Pattern!
For all who wanna have such a blanket, too:
Of course you can also make a normal sized version,
please try it, it's so much fun!

I don't spend much time on Facebook at the moment,
I hope I don't miss too many notifications of you.
I'm still present on the page
but I need much time for paperwork
& the rest of my time is dedicated to crocheting -
the best therapy anyway! ;-)

Fabulous yarn choice, Lindy!

Let's have a look at some new progress pictures, yay!

 And here you can see Gwenda's gorgeous
childhood puzzle piece!


So, but what is the project for this week?
Jodie gave me a wonderful inspiration!
Some of you might remember
that I wanted you to start the puzzle piece for week 1
with yarn in your favourite colour...
It was only a small part in the middle of the project.
This week we will play around a lot with our favourite colour!
Jodie suggested we could try a lot of different stitches
to receive a real special puzzle piece!

It was so much fun!
I wanted to try new stitches as well
but first I've started with some favourite stitches...
The Popcorn Stitch, my beloved Bullion Stitch,
the Basketweave Stitch (I love to play with it!!!)...
It was already so big
& I was in the mood to freeform stitches
with 3D-effects so I didn't try a new one
but improvised...
So much fun to create stitches by yourself!

I can only tell that it was such a great
& also really a new experiment for me!
Because I love using different colours...
I love creating new stitches
(I always try to reconstruct stitches
by looking at a photo -
actually I don't know if it's actually
made in another way.
Doesn't matter if it looks that way!)
For those of you who like crochet videos
to learn new stitches I have to recommend
a wonderful page:

I don't use the videos but the collection of stitches
in the "Crochet Stitchionary" is awesome!
I love to scroll down in this selection
because it's so inspiring & all the beautiful stitches
are on one place to get discovered!
Even if you prefer photo tutorials
have a look at the stitches on this page.
If you fell in love with a stitch
you can just use your favourite search engine
to find a stitch description...

Haha, I guess you already know that my favourite "colour" is neon!
I just had to use all neon shades!
If you have more than one colour you really adore
or maybe a colour combination go for it.
But try to stay with one colour for a while! ;-)
If some of you have more than one favourite colour
you could also start with Marina's 2-4 color spiral tutorial!
I came to this idea when I was already in progress
but maybe someone of you want to start with such a spiral! ;-)

That's how mine looks in the end...
Somehow like a frog!

I can't wait to see YOUR favourite colour projects!
Hugs to Jodie, such a good idea! :-)

I wanted to ask you to take a pic
of your puzzle piece collection...
It doesn't matter if they are already attached or not!
As you all know I would love to have a book dedicated
to our YOUR Personal Freeform CAL.
I have to send awesome pics
when I'm writing to editors,
would be great if you could do me this favour!
If you want to you can be on the pic, too!
I love to see CAL pics with you! ;-)


I love to prepare YOUR ideas so let me know 
what else you want to have in your CALs!

Stay awesome you talented princesses & princes,
it's a pleasure to have such gorgeous playfellows! 
Hugs from your friend Dada (or Julia)!


Let me see your art in Marina's Freeform Crochet World Group, on Dada Neon Crochet or Ravelry
