YARN POST. I know, not really a surprise, is it?
I did finish my first sweater...and so far Dummy (she doesn't have a name) is the only one who has worn it. It does fit, but seems a little too...oh I don't know. Maybe I just haven't figured out what to wear it with. But it was fun and I had to immediately race out and get more yarn.
This next sweater is not as much fun to make. In fact, it's been a bit boring. The only thing that's keeping me going is wondering how the heck this ever-growing rectangle is gonna turn into an actual sweater. I'll keep you posted.
On the crochet front, I did finish the pillow! Yay! And I love it. It's from a British company called Rooster. For some reason my absolute FAVORITE (favourite?) yarn patterns seem to always be by British designers.*
I did change the flowers and leaves on the pillow since I simply could not make sense out of the instructions. But I highly recommend the project and am planning on making several more. The pillow is kept on top of a plastic bin in my studio since I'm too afraid to put it out on an actual piece of furniture.
*It is entirely possible that I could have a new favorite source for crochet projects. I picked up these 2 books recently...and they are filled with the loveliest of crochet designs. Unfortunately the page numbers are the only part that's in english, so that will likely be an issue.
Next up: QUILTS. Yes, really!
