I made some simple little May Day baskets to share today.
It's always good when you can use supplies you already have
to create some happiness.
I also wanted to share some crochet stuff with you.
This is a scarf/shawl I just finished.
It's worked with two strands of size 10 bamboo thread.
The thread is very soft, and wasn't really all that difficult to work with.
So, now that I still have "how to work" the pattern in my head,
and remembering my mistakes, I'm
thinking of trying it again only in a different color.
Found these cute little sun and moon motifs in a
book I have. You know I just had to crochet some, especially
the moon! I'm thinking they might look good on my denim
jacket or maybe an old pair of jeans.
Remember wearing those iron-on
patches on your jeans when you were younger?
Then finally, I crocheted this pillow cover from a free
pattern I found on line.
This was the first time I have ever really tried
Aran Crochet, so it was fun to learn some new stitches.
Here's another shot of it on my new rocker I picked up at a
yard sale just down the alley for only $25.00!
I love the textures of Aran Crochet so now I'm working on an
Aran Afghan in cream that I hope to finish by Autumn. That too, has
a lot of stitches I've never done before, so wish me luck!
Finally, I thought this was so beautiful seeing this little, tiny
yellow pansy that found it's way to the sidewalk on our street.
A perfect May Day find.
Wishing all of you a very happy weekend ahead!
