Sneak peak preview of my skirt

I have switched to cotton. I was very happy for that, but suddenly today it started raining snow. How weird is that? Snow in March.

I started crocheting a skirt for myself. It is my first skirt and I am learning, but so far it looks good. I am doing a flower pattern on it and it is amazing. You can see the pattern on the picture below.


Also, Vanchy was kind enough to send me crochet hooks. I was lucky and I got these Susan Bates Crochet hook set and one big hook (9mm). Also I received this amazing fun fur yarn from Lion Brand. This is my first Lion Brand Yarn.



I used my new hooks and started crocheting a scarf from the yarn. Now this seems too easy, and I think that I should have a better use of my new yarn. I was thinking of making a poncho by combining this yarn with a regular one. First, I need to learn to knit, so I can do that.

Mila Drenka, jako mi se sviđa vaša inicijativa za Dan drveća!!!
... a tek ideja sa heklanjem sa starim vrećicama, sjajno! Već mi na um pada i torba za plažu i svašta izrađeno na taj način.
Suknja će ti biti krasna. Sviđa mi se i boja i uzorak.
Nego, da ja skoknem do tebe i na brzinu te poučim osnovama pletenja ;)?

Oh, that skirt looks beautiful! Here we still have a lot of snow even if it is March. Some days ago it snowed about half a meter... And yes we still wear hats,mittens and scarves. I so long for spring!

Pogled na ovu predivnu vunu me odmah ugrijao. Djeluje tako toplo i pahuljasto, sigurno je jako mekana...
Tvoj rad je jako lijep, sviđa mi se uzorak.
Puno te pozdravljam...

Početak rada vrlo obećava!
Bit će zanimljivo vidjeti gotovu suknju.
