The highlights of 2014

It's been quite a while since the last update of my crochet journey. 2014 was one of my most exciting years, counting the one in which Alex, my son was born. The first half of it we spent in Thailand, then when we finally got home I had Alex's second birthday party to organize. Check that and the whole August and I found myself packing my suitcase again. This time Alex and I went to the Greek seaside with my parents. We got back just in time for me to get ready for a two week trip to Western Europe. We spent most of that time in Paris and Berlin, but also visited an uncle in Luxembourg.

In the meantime we had other birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate. I barely had time to catch my breath and Christmas was already knocking on my door and with that the first ever craft exibition I participated in. I also managed to squeze in a smaller charity event. I was able to warm up little heads and hands with four hats, two pairs of gloves and a scarf.

My favorite projects of 2014 (in no particular order) are:

This little girl doesn't have an owner just yet, but I'm sure she'll find one in no time. I like this bookmark because it was the last project I started in 2014 and the first I finished in 2015. You can find e beautiful Little Owls Hut pattern here.

The canvas art above was our gift for my in-laws' anniversary. It holds a special meaning for my mother-in-law, since the yarn I used belonged to her late mother, who passed away two years ago. She also used to crochet and do cross-stitching. While the picture is about romantic love, it also refletcs my fondness of the lady whose stash I inherited.

I made this infinity scarf from my birthday-yarn. I loooove colors! The FREE pattern is available here.

A monkey vest for my monkey-boy. The three of us have a love-hate relationship about wearing it though: I love it on him, he, well, not so much. You can find the gorgeous Ira Rott pattern here.

These were part of my Christmas exibition. You'll find the FREE Christmas tree pattern here, while Unravel me's geniusly simple mug cozy is available here. And last, but not least my absolute favorite hats and glove of last year:

You'll find GoodKnits' foxy FREE pattern here.

The unbelievably cute Repeat Crafter Me pattern is here, did I mention it's also FREE?

This foxy mitten pattern was created by Little Thigs Blogged, you'll find it here for FREE!

This hat is sure to blow away the fisherman or woman in your family, the Angels Chest Boutique pattern is availabe here.

Happy New Year Everyone! I wish you all the best 2015 can possibly bring! And so does our snowman, Teddy!
