What´s going on.....

As you can see I have changed the layout of my blog and made a logo for funandfang.
What do you think??? Do you like it?? Please give me some feedback!!!

Besides this I am working on a new pattern (christmas is coming!!) and new tutorials.

If you are wondering about the little pregnant cat I told you about earlier...... she is still pregnant! (If you don´t know what the */% I am talking about: I have a little cat from the shelter in my home. When the kittens are old enough they will be given up for adoption.)
I will keep you posted on this too. (just because she is so cute!).

This is her, her name is Raafje, which means Raven in dutch.

So keep checking my blog and bring on the feedback!

How to decrease invisible?

Ever wondered how to decrease without leaving a knot or a gap?? I am going to try to explain it to you. Please let me know if you find this usefull, so I could do more how to´s... in the future.


1. Start by putting your crochethook through the Front loop of the first stitch, DO NOT pull the yarn through the loop, instead......


2...... Put your hook through the Front loop of the second stitch. This could take some practice, twist your hook to slide it through.


3. Now you have the two front loops on your hook and the loop that was already there, take up your yarn and pull through the two front loops at the same time.


4.Now you can finish your stitch as normal. You have now 2 loops on your hook, take up your yarn and pull through both of them. Now you are finished. You shouldn´t be able to see anything on the outside of your work.


This is a trick you need to practice a bit. In the beginning I couldn´t get the hang of it, but just hang in there, because the result is worth it.
Your work will look better and more professional.
