It's Voting Time!

When you look to the right, you’ll see that you can already vote for your favorite topic of the upcoming theme party! You’ve made wonderful suggestions, and so we’ve got a list of ten different topics to vote for.

While I present them to you, I thought I could add some pictures of little crochet items I’ve made some months ago and haven’t showed you yet. Like this Mandala for example (german pattern by glueckskreativ):

Now let’s start with the topics, these were my suggestions (please read my previous post for further information):

Granny Squares (single grannies, blankets, cushions, bags, etc.)

Flowers (single flowers, garlands, scarves, blankets, etc.)

Blankets (striped, rippled, baby blankets, granny square blankets, etc.)

Amigurumi (I’ve picked this topic instead of “Baby Crochet”, because everything else for babies will be covered by our other topics)

By the way, here’s a Hello Kitty amigurumi. This was indeed the first amigurumi I’ve ever made.


There used to be an english pattern on K and J Dolls, but due to some copyright issues the pattern is only available in Dutch and Portuguese now. I used both versions simultaneously (neither speaking Dutch nor Portuguese) and with a little bit of guessing it worked perfectly :)

Back to our list, I’d also be happy with

Pretty in Pink (easy: crochet projects in all shades of pink)

A little later, Debi and me thought about

Kitchen (potholders, hot-pads, dishcloths, etc.)

and Debi also came up with

Bags and Purses (I think the popular i-pad/pod/phone cozies would fit here also)

San thought about

Covered (e.g. covered stones, jars, soap, vases, cup cozies, etc.)

Here’s a covered vase I’ve made some weeks ago. Actually it’s an empty lime juice bottle, but I think it’s quite cute and makes a perfect little vase:


Barbina suggested

Clothing (scarves, socks, hats, dresses, baby clothes, etc.)

and

Colorful (blankets, cushions, flowers, potholders, ... the possibilities are endless!)

If the google translator hasn’t lied (sorry, my Spanish is not so good), Susanna came up with Christmas crochet (which will definitely be on the december-list) and covers for glass jars (which fits perfectly to the Covered topic).

It's quite a long list, isn't it? But don't worry, you can vote for several topics if you can't make up your mind which one you like best :)

Thank you all for your suggestions, I can't wait to see your wonderful entries! If you've got even more ideas for topics, please feel free to post them - I'm so excited about this party already, that there'll be definitely another one soon :)

And now Happy Voting everyone!

  4. thank you for your votes so far! I'm also very excited, looks like the Grannies had a great start (but there's still more than a week left to vote).

    @ Bri: you probably know i-crochet, the crochet way and "link your stuff" over at Annemarie's Breiblog? (If not: these are sites where you can place a link back to your own blog and choose the thumbnail that will be shown in the collection's gallery.

    My link party will work the same way, but we will have a theme (that's why I've started this poll), i.e. we'll only link to posts that show Granny Squares OR Flowers OR Blankets OR ... - depending on which theme's gonna win. Don't worry, you'll know what to do, once the party has started! :)
