Hooks & Needles
Most of my creative energy has been directed to knitting & crochet lately. I have a few works in progress (WIP).
I’m knitting a hooded cape for my granddaughter for Christmas. The pattern is the Bairn Cape by Heidi May at The Velvet Acorn on Etsy. I love it! It’s knitting up very easily. Which is good for a relative beginner like me. I’m using Katia Azteca yarn, a 50/50 blend of wool and acrylic.
On the crochet front, I am making a shawl for a good friend. I’m using My Melody yarn from Wolltraum in Wonderland. It’s so pretty and soft. Starts out a beautiful blue and gradually goes to gray then purple. The pattern is the Virus Shawl. There is a video series on YouTube, and a chart is available here. It’s really pretty easy. There are four different rows that you repeat until it is the size you want
So what are you working on? Sewing? Knitting? Scrapbooking? Other? All of the above?
