The sun was out today, ahh. The boys on the radio, this morning, said that we had gone 14 days without sun, man it really makes a difference! My daughter noticed it immediately by showing us a decorative shadow in the hallway. My husband insisted we all walk to school, even though the temperature was still way below freezing. And I, well, I thought of using the natural light to take some good photos of what I’ve been crocheting lately. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to the picture taking, so I’m sorry for the dimly lit examples.
I have been working on a custom order for a friend of mine. She wanted a pair of off white yoga leg-warmers (at least that is what I’m calling them). I came up with the pattern, and like usual, the first one took FOREVER to complete. Between counting stitches, writing everything down, tearing things out, and re-counting, it took me almost a week to complete. The second leg-warmer went a lot quicker, since I was using my pattern. Here are a few photos I took before washing and blocking.
What do you think? Would you be interested in the pattern?
My second WIP has been the blanket I’ve been working on for Project Linus. I wrote about this charity here, and as soon as the leg warmers were finished I started the baby blanket. I’m using a basket weave stitch with a blanket yarn, and I think any little one would be cozy in it. I secretly wish I could snuggle up in this blanket too ;-).
Last but not least, I need to announce the winner of the heart earrings give-away. Congratulations Yolanda Chavez from Yochet! I’ll be reaching out on FaceBook to get your new heart studs to you!
If you didn’t win and want a pair of these, please check out my Etsy shop here!
Hope everyone is off to a good week! Happy Crocheting!
