Can't seem to get started on my normal January schedule - designing new cards for the 2011 season. While recovering I did some knitting and crocheting because I just love the feel of yarn! A few posts ago I added an image of the hanger covers I made for little holiday gifts . They were really appreciated! I also knitted a sweaater vest - but the sizing didn't work out as planned.
While creating the hangers, I inspired my two daughters to learn to crochet. The one is making a scarf and the other has made a few ladies hats. They are doing well with their new found hobby!
Because I still had the yen to continue crocheting - I went through my older books and found a pattern for a "mile-a-minute" aphgan from Annie's Attic. It's a beautiful pattern and very very simple, done in 9 strips approximately 6" wide by 82" long with rounded off ends that when sewn together become scallops, top and bottom. I chose light rose and white yarn like the pattern on the cover and have already finished one strip - I just can't put it down.
I find the winter months a good time to work with yarn - but then anytime is a good time for creating - don't you think? If you've been inspired to create something new or different, why not share it with us in the comment box below.
