I found a really neat crochet pattern that I wanted to try so I dug out the random bits of crochet cotton that my mom gave me ages ago and gave it a whirl. It’s been years since I’ve done anything more complicated than chains and single crochet stitches (Dean’s spaghetti monster hat) so I needed a book from the library to explain what the heck was going on. It’s a really easy pattern though and I’ve already got it memorized. I took a picture of where I was last night.
I’ve finished the multicoloured section and done more, but I don’t want to completely spoil the surprise so that’s all I’m willing to show for now.
In the middle of working on this project, I came across a link to a crocheted bookmark that I knew my mom would love and decided to do that too since her birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks.
It only took a few hours to do, though now I have to figure out how to starch it and hope it keeps its shape in the mail.
