CAL Manteta Vasarely #2 / CAL Vasarely Blanket #2

Avui és dia 21, així que toca reportar els meus progressos amb la manteta del CAL Vasarely organitzat per Le Blog Purple...

Bé... només us diré que hauria d'haver fet 35 rombes... i que no tinc 35 rombes... però us prometo que tinc una bona excusa!!! :P

Després de portar-ne fets com una dotzena, fa 10 dies vaig decidir canviar el tipus de llana que estava utilitzant i he hagut de tornar a començar des de zero...

I ens aquests 10 dies he fet 23 rombes! Vist així, no porto mal ritme... tenint en compte que només ho faig entre setmana! espero haver-me posat al dia ben aviat!

La major part dels rombes els faig aprofitant els viatges en tren per anar a treballar, però el que encara no he fet és començar a unir-los... Les que aneu més avançades, teniu algun consell? Feu servir la mateixa llana que per fer els rombes?? I una agulla de tapisser??

Bé, ens tornem a trobar el proper 8 de maig amb 53 rombes!

...però abans, una pregunta per a les companyes franceses! A finals de primavera volem visitar la zona d'Aix-en-Provence, teniu alguna recomanació dels llocs més interessants per visitar?

Moltes gràcies!!

Today it's the 21st, so I should report my progress on the CAL Vasarely blanket from Le Blog Purple...

Well... I'll only say that I should have crocheted 35 diamonds by now... and I haven't... but I swear I have a good excuse!! LOL!

After having crocheted a dozen diamonds, 10 days ago I changed my mind about the yarn I was using... And I've started once again from the very beginning...

Since then I've crocheted 23 diamonds! Quite fast, I think... taking into account, that I only crochet on weekdays! I hope I'll catch the rest of crocheters pretty soon!

I do crochet most of the diamonds during my commutes, but I haven't started joining them... Any advice from the more advanced ones? Are you using the same yarn to join than the one to crochet the diamonds? And a tapestry needle??

Ok, see you on the 8th of May, with 53 diamonds!

 

...but let me ask something to my french CAL colleagues! We'll be visiting the Aix-en-Provence area by the end of spring, could you recommend us the most interesting places to visit?

Thank you very much!!

  1. Great job ! Your diamonds look perfect ! I didn't start joining my diamonds either, but i believe we are supposed to use a doubled thread and a tapestry needle. See you in May !

  3. Congratulations for that start! I don't use yarn to sew them, it's too thick. I use a sewing thread held double. As for Aix-en-Provence, I cannot really recommend any place (except La Fondation Vasarely of course) but the whole city center is a marvel; just hanging about the streets will be great...
