Boy oh boy!
This first week of September seems to have just flown by.
School days are busy and when I get home, I really don't feel like doing a whole heck of a lot. Mostly, I kick cleaning to the curb and turn to crochet for peace and tranquility.
On Friday, a friend asked if I could crochet some anchors for her daughter who has been taking diving lessons. She has four diving captains that she wants to give gifts to and sent a picture of what she had found online. The first pattern I googled was in 3 pieces (top left), which was okay, but not what I was looking for. Later in the day, and quite by accident, I came across a pattern by Petals to Picot that works up as one piece.
The only problem is they aren't very stiff so I am trying to figure that out. I told her I would just make a bunch up and she could do whatever she wants with them. As a surprise, I made her a little gift bag and will get some chocolate fish to put inside.
My jar topper collection continues to grow. Pattern can
be found here at Nata's Nest.
Also from Nata's Nest is the Mandala Flower Coaster which I've made a lot of.
Both patterns are great for stashbusting as they are super quick and use up all those little yarn bits you might have laying about.
Hope you are having a super Sunday!
