Way back in January, I knew that I wanted to crochet something for one of my besties, Toni, for her 30th birthday. And as she is a lover of all things purple, much like myself, it was obvious that her gift would end up being purple.
So I was grabbing both the purple and lilac crochet thread, when the grey one caught my eye. Ooooh, this would make a good addition.
At first, I had no idea what I was going to make, but I knew it was going to be jewellery. I had recently figured out how to do amigurumi tubes after seeing all the awesome crochet jewellery on Etsy and decided to give it a try for Toni’s gift.
Three hours later, this gorgeous pair – come on, they are truly cutesy – was born! I had made several different tubes, changing the size of the hoops and the variations of the colours, when I finally settled on this design (or pattern? You know what I mean).
I had also done a necklace, using the same amigurumi pattern and same design, which for some reason, I am only now noticing I don’t have a photo of… how very strange… anyhow, Toni was to take a pic when she wore the jewellery and I still haven’t seen any yet… hmmm, maybe she needs a reminder…
