Lately I have been trying to find bits and pieces of free time to work on my new colorful project. I will tell you more about it as soon as it’s finished and presentable. For now, I would like to share some of the colorful deliciousness that’s lying on my table right now.
Have I already mentioned that I loooove to crochet?!
When I was just expecting my baby a couple of months ago and shared the news with you here on this site, one of my sweet readers replied to my post with a message saying that the baby will have it really nice with a mom who can make a teddy bear for him.
I loved the idea and it kept reappearing in mind until I thought it was high time to make it reality.
That thing just needed to be done.
I visualized what the teddy bear could look like to be appropriate for my now six months old baby. I wanted it to be cute first of all. And I also wanted it to be easy to lift and move around.
So I crocheted and crocheted and then crocheted some more and after a few days of work a little teddy bear was born.
I am happy to report that my little boy welcomed his new buddy very warmly. He likes to hug him, squeeze him, throw him as far as he can and these days, as a big new thing, he is even learning how to crawl towards him.
We take the little teddy with us wherever we go and he works very well as a small cushion for pushchair or car seat naptime.
Of course, as usual, I have put together a pattern for those of you who would like to make a teddy bear like this one too. The pattern is is full op step-by-step pictures and is really easy to follow (… if I may say so myself).
I have been wanting to make a crochet infinity scarf for quite a long time, all I was trying to decide on was the design that I’d like the best. And lately it occurred to me it just has to be chevron. What else?! Those soothing zig zags. The sea or relaxing ripples. Such sweetness.
After a quick trip to the shop to find nice and contrasting couple of yarn colors I set of to work.
And this is the result.
Frankly, every time I work on a chevron pattern I wish the project just never ended. There’s something very magical about this pattern.
Sooo, if you’d like to learn more details about this project, you can find the description and the pattern itself HERE and HERE.
Lately, I have been playing with some wonderfully soft and delicious yarn. What a bliss! I started designing two new crochet projects and have been working on both of them at the same time. As I found out, it’s actually a lot of fun to work this way. I happily jump from one project to the other, never get bored and can choose the one that suits my current mood better. It might become my new working strategy, we’ll see.
I look forward to sharing more details with you soon.
