I started a blanket on boxing day (I think… I’m having memory issues). Since then I’ve realised I don’t have enough of the same shade of brown to make a blanket worth of Sun flowers. 😦
That’s what you get, I suppose, when you don’t plan these things more carefully.
But rather than scrap the whole thing; which I think was looking pretty good I decided to repurpose my project.
Blanket became scarf.
I’ve got about 6 smaller (side) motifs to join then it’s just a matter of weaving in the many many ends.
The other day I designed a small flower/motif based upon one described by a friend.
Six motifs were created and stitched around a crocheted sphere. My friend’s daughter can hang onto this when her comfort blanket eventually falls apart (hopefully not for a good while).
I enjoyed this short project and wonder whether something like this might make a nice wardrobe freshener if filled with potpourri or lavender. 🙂
Yesterday, a friend described a motif that was in a blanket belonging to her daughter. The crocheted blanket has seen better days but her little girl loves the pattern in it.
So after I’d done all the Work I needed to do at home, I had a go at creating the motif… I’m quite pleased with the result and am pretty sure that only minor tweaking will be required 🙂
Motif with supervising cat
Who doesn’t love a cat in a hat? Especially when it’s a crocheted hat 🙂
One of the first things I learned to make were crocheted roses. The nicest pattern that I found was part of a Youtube video.
They’re easy and effective to make; you’ll find them enhancing quite a few of my projects.
