Playing with T-Shirt Yarn // Jugando con Trapillo

Country Maison t-shirt yarn basket

Hello ! 
Well, it seems I'm slowly getting back to normal. . . 
I'm working (slowly) on writing the mittens pattern
I have written very few patterns in my life and this one I'm finding it very difficult, specially as I have found no reference whatsoever for a written pattern for the Crossed Basket-weave Stitch (in Crochet) and so I'm trying to find the words to explain it to you. 
But I will get there, eventually and hope you understand why is taking me soo long and I'm sure I can count on your patience, can't I ?

Hola !
Bueno, parece que poco a poco vuelvo a la normalidad . . .
Estoy trabajando (muy despacito, lo se) en el patrón de los mitones
He escrito muy pocos patrones de crochet en mi vida y este me esta resultando muy dificil. Especialmente porque no he encontrado ninguna referencia de patrón escrito para el Punto Cesta Entrecruzado y estoy intentando encontrar la forma de explicarlo con palabras para que lo podáis entender. 
Pero bueno, lo conseguiré. . . y espero que entendais porque me ha llevado tanto tiempo y estoy segura de que puedo contar con vuestra paciencia, verdad ?

In the meanwhile I made this beauty . . . isn't it lovely ?
I bought a hook size 12 in 2013, sometime before the summer . . . 
and I only got to use it last weekend. 

I made this little basket to hold my little skeins of yarn stash. 
It took me around 1 hour flat !! it is soo quick to make you would not believe it and I really needed a quick project. 

Mientras tanto he hecho esta belleza . . . no es bonito ?
Compre un ganchillo del 12, antes del verano de 2013 . . . 
pero solo lo he usado el pasado fin de semana. 
Esta cestita sera para guardar las bolitas que tengo de restos de lana. 
Me llevo 1 hora en total ! Es muy rápido de hacer, de verdad y necesitaba un proyecto rápido.

I used this yarn, and the lighter pink I will be using it too very soon . . . 

Next project I really, really want to make is a rug for my daughter's room. . . but I'm hoping to find more colors to mix it, well I don't know yet. . . I will see if I end up doing it in 1, 2 or several colors !! 

And you ? Have you tried this yet ?

Have a wonderful week ahead !
Use trapillo, y el color mas claro lo usare muy pronto . . . 

Mi proximo proyecto con esto será una alfombra para la habitación de mi hija. . . pero espero encontrar mas colores para mezclar, no lo se. . . ya veré si la hago en un, dos o mas colores !! 

Y vosotras ? Habéis trabajado con trapillo ya ?

Que tengáis una preciosa semana !!

  2. I love the basket. Did you make the t shirt yarn yourself or buy it? It looks so perfectly wrapped. I crocheted a small rug for my kitchen with some left over ugly fabric (quilting cotton). I still love it. It is scrappy and comfortable under my feet when I am washing dishes. I love the pillow in the background of the picture.

  3. Eva! me encanta! tant limpio, tant perfecto! y éste color pink que enamora... eres una artista! un abrazo. Montse

  4. I bought the same hook last summer, but It is in my yarn-bag I haven't use it jet. Maybe I'll do a new rug for my bathroom whith old tshirt.

  5. Nunca he tejido con trapillo, y se mira muy divertido. Tu canasta quedó bella :-)

  6. Eva.. es preciosa.. nunca he hecho nada a trapillo y me encantaría hacerla.. es muy dificil? Me enseñarías a hacerla...
    Gracias.. Besiños...
