The last day of February! Spring equinox only 20 days away. Woot!
Longing for summer, traveling to it soon, and searching for nautical inspiration on the net, I ended up making a treasury on Etsy. It “only” took me 4 hours to find the images I liked, but it was worth it. During that time I went back to memories by the beach, by the lake, on the sea, feeling the sun and the salty wind. Good therapy!
For Thanksgiving last year I posted a photo of a scrumble I had been working on. Having thoughts of gratitude, harvest, and other related things, I realized my scrumble looked like a funky turkey head!
The scrumble is made using my two color spiral pattern, a “wing” pattern, and ridges made with reverse single crochet, a.k.a. Crab Stitch. The wing pattern can also be considered a leaf pattern.
A fellow crocheter and her friends are planning to yarn bomb a new fence in their neighborhood. For this project they need a lot of crocheted flowers. I had a few stashed away and decided to mail them. My contribution wasn’t going to help much, so I made more.
But the flowers are so small, and the fence is so big. How can I make big flowers, and fast?
After making a dozen of the sweet, traditional, crocheted Christmas balls, my mind refused to follow the patterns. My plan was to create a pattern for a big ball in the traditional style. It just didn’t happen.
