crochetparty: 50 crochetloving ladies!

Last Saturday we had a great crochetparty organised by two lovely ladies and instagram friends;  Frederika and  Mabel . This was my first crochetparty and I was quit overwhelmed by everything! The location was fantastic. In a very rural surrounding we were welcomed at Fruittuin Verbeek in Oldebroek. For me it was more than one hour driving by car but it was so worth it.

We started with coffee/tea and some delicious sweetness.

On our table were the supplies to crochet this lovely basket. The babyplants in the basket were a gift I received from my friend Elisabeth Andree Elisabeth Andree  plantsetcetera( the plants arrived at my home when I was at the party).

The beautiful leather label we got from de haakfabriek thank you Chantel!

I did not manage to crochet the basket at the party because I enjoyed so  much looking around and talk to all the ladies (50 crochet loving ladies). So I finished the basket Sunday at home. if you want to crochet this basket you can find the free pattern in the webshop from Mabel where you can also buy the supplies you need. click here Hipmetkleur

The theme of this party was back to basic, but it turned out to be more than basic! We were so spoiled with yarn ! from YarnandColors  we received 8 balls or their new yarn Epic in lovely candy colors! I started a project with it this week, could not resist it any longer! I am working with the tunesian technique and also intarsia to create a figure in the crochet.

We also enjoyed a great lunch with homemade asparagus soup and delicious bread and fruit. After lunch everyone took their crochet work outside and it looked like a real market with all the colorful blankets, shawls, bags, amigurumi and other crochetprojects!
