My husband did well this year. Not only did he totally surprise me but he got me something I absolutely love!
This sampler of RichMore Percent 1/100 is one of my favourite gifts ever.
It’s so soft and the colours are just gorgeous. I cannot wait to make something special out of these little beauties. But what? A patchwork granny square blanket? Multi coloured scarf? I will have so much fun deciding.
I thought it would take a few tries to find a colour combination I was happy with but I actually love how my first attempt turned out.
I used Sewrella’s Parker baby hat pattern and the colours fit perfectly.
I wanted something special and not made out of chocolate for Lottie’s Easter present.
Thanks to the wonderful Laura at HappyBerry Crochet I was able to make this sweet little bunny.
Lottie loved her bunny and I loved the sweet amigurumi pattern that worked up in a few nights.
Here is the link to the video tutorial and also HappyBerry Crochet‘s wonderful website if you are looking for polished, easy to follow patterns.
I’ve been crocheting all my life on and off however the last 2 years of actively working on my skills has been helped so much by this website and Laura’s videos. I’ve made beanies, toys, play food and all sorts of things and I always know they will turn out perfect if she wrote the pattern.
Next I want to try another crochet doll. I wasn’t all that happy with my first attempt and I think I need something easier, a bit more piece by piece instead of working the whole body, head and legs in one. Any suggestions?
It took 2 weeks longer than expected but I’ve finally finished this beautifully thick and warm scarf for my sister.
Considering it’s already snowing in parts of Canberra, I’m keen to send it to her this week (after I’ve weaved in the ends of course).
It was super easy. Just chain the width you want and single crochet (U.S stitch) as many rows as needed until you hit the length you want. The thick wool worked up really neatly.
So this year I’m trying out these pretty rose bookmarks based on a photo I saw on Pinterest a few months ago.
I based the flower on HappyBerry Crochet’s pattern and played around with braids and plaits for the tail.
I’m liking the brown one, looking forward to making a few more tonight.
My first attempt at a full size doll for Lottie is going surprisingly well!
Granny squares, scarves, beanies and headbands I can handle but doing a complicated project is so exciting.
I’ll post full pics and detail when she’s done but here’s my progress so far using AmigurumiToGo.com’s pattern.
Sorry for crappy pic. I took it at 1am.
