Things I have been making lately………
I have been crafting like crazy lately. I had some left over yarn and was a little unsure of what to do with it. I searched the internet for ideas but sometimes google is my homeboy and other times….he is annoyance. So I finally used this site that I have heard so much about, ravely. There I found this great pattern for an ear warmer from this site. I used thick and thin yarn which gave these ear warmers an interesting look and texture.
I then added on a little flower. Easy, cute and great for those cold winter days.
I also am getting ready for the holidays and found the best ornaments to make. I have also been just a little obsessed with heart. Hearts are all around me and I making them like crazy.
I made LOTS of these. It wasn’t without a lot of work. They are easy enough to make…once you figure out how. I found the pattern at one of my favorite blogs, Meet Me At Mikes but I kept on making them as the pattern said and they kept coming out looking like crap. So I researched and found a pattern that worked, every single time by this women named suzie.
Here it is: chain 4 and then 3 tc, 3 dc, chain 1, 1 tc, chain 1, 3 dc, 3 tc, chain 2, slip stitch.
I am working on one of these little cuties right now and in the process am falling in love with Amigurumi. I found these at roxycrafts.
Amigurumi according to wikipedia : Amigurumi 編みぐるみ is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. Amigurumi have no practical use; they are created and collected for aesthetic reasons. The pervading aesthetic of amigurumi is cuteness.
Number one objective…cuteness? I am sold.
These are the next one that I want to work on. I can imagine these at coasters, garland, ornament, or stuffed inside of letters send home with a tag that reads “my heart.” I found these at bella dia.
