I finished another mandala. The project is #MandalasforMarinke  created in memory of Marinke Slump. You can keep up with things on this project and others at the Facebook page for Crochet Concupiscence.

I actually like this one better than the first one but it curls some (which she does say it might on the pattern). I'm making an effort to block it now. Heh I don't block many things so ... we'll see. I just wet it and pinned it down. 

The pattern is Marinke's Summer Hearts except I couldn't bear to add two more tails to sew in so I didn't do the surface crochet round.

I'm on the mandala roll now. LOL I don't like sewing in all those tails so I am now making a one color project. I think it would make a nice doily. Actually many of the mandalas would make pretty doilies. 

I got sidetracked while working on this blog. That happens to me a lot. LOL I added a few pics to my picasa album so I had to then find what pattern I used etc. That took a while so here I am back to finish this up and I have nothing more to say. Crazy. heh

Addition: I forgot to talk about the yarn. This is Knit Picks Comfy Sport. The creme color is Ivory. The green is honeydew. The pink is flamingo. I think the purple is Lady Slipper but I lost the wrapper for it so not positive.

Happy crocheting!


  1. Really nice..I'm still on my first one..I was thinking the same that they be nice as doilys too...

  2. Over the past couple of years, I have discovered I LOVE making yarn doilies and have found many patterns work up very nicely...IMHO.
    I've also done a few mandalas and enjoyed the process.
