Yesterday was one of those wierd days that seems touched by faith. It all started with me finding the lovely blog myrosevalley written by Annette. She had a lovely post about the bed thow her grandma (I think) gave her when she was sixteen, and wrote about how she found it again now that she was a crocheter herself and could not even figure out exactly how it was made.
I liked this post so much I even showed it to my husband and he liked it too and like me thought the throw was a genuine work of art.
Yesterday was also the day of the cushion covers! well today is also... we bought ten(!) cushions the other day at IKEA and they all need covers (but more on that in a later post) And when they all have covers they al need pretty fronts that I am gonna crochet, I have four sort of done, but I want them to wary so I was thinking out loud to my husband about this,
-One with stripes, one with zigzags, one big square, oh and one with tiny squares... what else?
-Could you make one that's a spiral?
- umh.. don't think so... but I have seen a spiral granny pattern somewhere.
So thats why when I was brushing my teeth I was trying to remember where on earth I had seen the spiral granny pattern and I remembered I have a small collection of patterns for crochet squares that I bought at a thrift shop up in Örnsköldsvik and maybe thats where I had seen a spiral? I went and got it from the shelf and just stood there staring at it cause there on the front was the pattern from the bed throw!
And inside it is; the pattern for how to make your own Bohusruta! It is in Swedish and if you can read that you can just click the pick and read it of of there. but I am gonna try to make one and make a translation too English for the rest of you though I must admit I don't think I would ever make more than one of these they look HARD!.
