Dee: After my month long knit-a-thon for NaKniSweMo, which I totally plan to participate in next year, I’ve started in with crafting Christmas gifts. Well, I did switch out the bear buttons on my sweater first for ones that had Nordic design and just look better overall.
So, then I got to business and tried my hand at some crochet…not my strong suit…at all. I wanted a sunny side up egg cotton washcloth to gift with a bar of bacon soap that I found at a craft show. I had to watch an online video frame by frame to learn how to crochet a flat circle. After that I had to adapt my stitches to keep the thing flat and a bit free form to mimic the egg. It turned out pretty well and made me smile so all’s good.
Next I got to work on some wooden sheep ornaments. I placed a custom order back in July with a guy on Etsy and then added my own felt ears before wrapping them up in colorful fleece. I have an entire flock to outfit however they need to have their ears added first. Cute huh?!
More to come…happy knitting!
