Once a week, I try to check out the recently added crochet patterns on Ravelry, which I’ve come to realize can easily mean 300 or more new patterns to gawk at. Of course, when this sometime full hour activity is over, I’ve added at least 10 new patterns to my favourites and often times, pinned them as well.
And then there are those awesome patterns that you see and just have to try immediately.
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.
My mom recently came back from a six-week trip to NY with my son. As is often the case, I was tinkering at some crochet project the day before she left and she started going through my finished motifs bag, of which I’m kinda embarrassed to put up a photo.
