Oya Doily- Finished!


So a while back in a previous post about knitted lace doilies and the tablecloth I made thats on etsy, I also stated that I was in the middle of making a mixed crochet and Oya doily.  Well, Its done!  And doesn't it look mighty fine?  Each has 5 rows of crochet and then 6 oya petals which are all joined to each other.  I much prefer mixing crochet with oya to make doilies than starting off in the traditional way, as this takes forever and I get bored.  I'll make one one day though, I always like to try things atleast once.  This took me a while to complete, by the 5th motif I was getting drained, because as I said previously each petal has to be worked up individually.  I'm going to put this one up on etsy sometime and see how it goes, although I should make some more in different styles for the market stall that I hope to have sometime this year!

Enjoy your day! Thanks for reading!

Oya lace escapades for 2012!


Its been a very busy start to the year for me, as most of you know I was doing placement at an aged care facility and needed 120 hours completed in order to receive my certificate.  So that's out of the way for the time being, and now all I need to do is finish 1 and a 1/2 work books and I'm done and I'll have my certificate III in Aged care and Home and Community Care!  Excitedddd! 

So thats why I haven't been blogging so much, but I have been crafting!  I've made a couple more crochet oya lace scarves, some bracelets and 2 more Lif (washcloths.)  I've also been playing around with beads and other things so just for the time being I'm going to post the Oya scarves, because I've put them up on ETSY so go over and have a look if you're interested!!

This Oya is called "Katmer Cicegi"  I love the way it looks and I'm really proud of myself.

This is another one of my newest oya scarves, I think I picked really good colours to go with the
scarf to make it stand out.

This one was a little bit harder but still came out really nice.


This oya is pretty easy, but takes alot of time.  The flowers are all tatted, and then
crocheted on top by a chain and then added to the scarf.

All these scarves and many more are available on my Etsy Store

Free Crochet Oya Pattern..


So this is how this pattern came to life.  I was searching on the internet for like crochet fonts or something so I could write up a couple of patterns to put up on here or for sale or whatever, and I found this great blog that spoke of Adobe illustrator and even gave a 3 part tutorial on how to use the basics (you can find the 1st part here) So I thought I'd give it a shot.  It took me forever mind you so for those of you who will be testing out this edging, you'd better be thankful lol.  Its not the most perfect, but I hope you get the basic idea.  I've done an example of this edging on my blog, only with beads and I said it looked like 7s, so if you want to look at what the oya should look like (minus the beads) then look here (obviously its the yellow one)  So yeah..try it out, let me know what you think, and if you want to repost the diagram anywhere, please remember that I spent ages trying to make it as best as a beginner can, so make sure you link it back to my profile.  Thankyou very much and have a wonderful day!  Oh and by the way:  I didn't know what you call a "wrap 4 times around hook" so just make sure you count 4 and then pull one through, then pull 2 by 2 through until you have one loop left.
