A week passes so fast in our home: I have made several attempts to post here since the last Yarn Along, and all to no avail. But I’m working on being a bit more organised 🙂
Not a huge amount of crochet has been done; although I must say that making the crochet necklaces just suit me at the minute: reasonably fast and I can be a “creative” as I like (or not). I have completed three (still to sew on the buttons) and have another nearing completion. I am trying to work out a pattern as I work (thank you to all who expressed an interest in one!) so I am working on a very basic one which will allow the maker to be as creative as they like and to make the necklace truly theirs.
I “found” the beret…
(yes, that stuff streaming through our windows is actual sun. Warm, beautiful sun. We have not seen such a phenomenon here in Ireland for a long two years)
I think it is too gathered as I started to decrease towards the brim. But, having said that, it doesn’t look too bad on my “head” (the boys are calling my (female) head Jonathan: they think this is hilarious): what do you think? (the gathering, not the name!)
Not much reading being done here either: still plodding through last weeks’ ones.
Off to check out the other Yarn Along-ers!
That beret is so fun Emily, love the colours! Would be fab on someone with full curly hair. And the necklaces really do suit you girl, they’re quite stunning. Love small do-able projects too : ) Enjoy this beautiful sun…can you believe it? xx
Enjoy that sun! I think the gatherings on the beret almost make it look pleated, very cool.
I love the ‘working on being more organised’…get over it , never going to happen!!….Was slightly scared by the head coming out of the table before realising that it wasn’t in fact a human.On a more constructive note, love that beret especially the gathering and the choice of colours. Wow necklaces, interested to see exactly what you plan for the buttons.I miss you, havent seen you since xmas, waaay tooo long..xXx
I love, love, love that beret! Beautiful!
