I was out of town for a couple of weeks visiting family, and look what greeted me when I got home:
|I love the fabrics and the big velvety ribbon|
a birthday present from my friend Elizabeth of Mrs Thomasina Tittlemouse fame. My birthday was a couple of months ago, and little did I know that someone was working on a gift for me :)
It is a crochet hook roll and inside was tucked a raspberry colored crochet hook:
The little flap folds down to keep everything safe -- no falling out of the top.
Mrs T, thank you from the bottom of my heart:) Truly one of the best parts of blogging is making new friends from around the world.
I wanted to take a little break from blanket-making and venture into some new territory (for me). Here is the beginning of my new project -- a free crochet tote pattern on ravelry. (Note: if you decide to make this tote, follow the corrections listed. Otherwise, your square will not turn out -- ask me how I know). I saw a multi-colored tote that I really loved, so I am trying for a similar effect with this self-striping yarn.
|Bernat Mosaic Yarn -- Optimist Colorway|
I love these colors, but if you want to see similar blocks worked up in a very different -- but beautiful -- color way, go visit little cotton rabbits, where she is making up a blanket.
Hope your summer is filled with fun projects!
