Mici the Mermaid

I’m gonna lose track soon on what part of “Adventures in Lalylala-Land” I’m currently at, thus the title. Anyways Mici is finally here! I feel it’s been a while since my last Lalylala creation.

This one used some metallic thread, which gives it a great effect!

The main reason for this guy’s photo shoot delay was finding a location. But during the 4th of July weekend, we had a chance to drive a ways away from home and found a spot for him at the Kaka’ako Waterfront park.

It was nice to have some ships around in the background, I felt it inspires a backstory for Mici. As if he wandered off and got stranded far away from home. Perhaps he could use a water-dwelling friend.

My First Sophie’s Universe Blanket

First project I want to share is a blanket. In mid-2015, I finished this crochet-along (CAL) to see what the hype was all about. Decided to use scrap yarns, and immediately regretted it! It did come out beautiful with lots of compliments from one of my favorite crochet groups on Facebook, but I just knew it could have been more wonderful and definitely much softer had I picked proper yarn!

Upon finishing this CAL, you definitely can’t call yourself a beginner anymore. As long as you know how to read a written pattern and follow video tutorials, this can be a great project to advance your crochet skills. This CAL will teach you front/back post stitches, popcorn and bobble stitches, and surface crochet.

The pattern for Sophie’s Universe (by Dedri of lookwhatimade.net) can be found here.
