'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

showing a few new squares

Hello everyone,

It is a rainy sundayafternoon here in Holland. Perfect for cleaning up the house ;-). But also for crocheting.

I have been working on new SIBOL-squares. And I'd like to show them to you (Sue agreed to me doing so)!

I have been trying out a few patterns by Sarah London this time.
This is the 'pop wheel', with a little twist by myself (because I used a too small hook and it didn't turn out big enough):

This is the tweedy granny square:

And this is a bold Irish rose, which I attached on -again- a granny square:

I am not sending them off to Sue yet though. First I'll make some more to join them (and finish the loose ends) ...


  1. They are lovely, gorgeous colours!

  2. Goed gedaan Isolde. Zo kleurrijk en vrolijk!

    Well done Isolde. So colourful and happy!

  3. Isolde,
    Thank you so much for this great post! It really is lovely to see your squares. The colours are really good together, what lovely patterns too!
    I am so pleased you are taking an active part in the posting on SIBOL. This is what I would like others to do. We have a nice little group of friends on here.
    Thank you so much and you are very welcome to post any time!
    Have a good day,
    Hugs Suex

  4. Ooo I love the zingy colours the pop wheel is my fave. going to have a go. Lovely post.
