Here's a couple of crochet projects I've been making. I'm still a beginner but I'm really enjoying this. It is so relaxing to just sit quietly somewhere and turn a yarn into something amazing that I will cherish or offer as a gift. Crochet very much feel like a mindfulness meditation... Some people even chant while crocheting. I will try this next! Chanting the words of happiness so that the message is encrypted in whatever I'm crocheting!
Here's a hat that I've made using this pattern that I bought. It's an easy pattern for a beginner and I very much like the results.
How does it look on me?
I can see a pixie! Oh, where is it hiding?!
And I've also made a bag. I made this one without a pattern, just measured according to the frame and increased/reduced as required.
My sewing skills helped in making an imaginary pattern for this...
I've still got to attach a chain to it and it will be done!
The back view. I think I got excited with the frills but I kind of like it! It's nice a girly!
So, here's some inspiration for some handmade gifts for the holidays! I'd be making the hat again!
