This week I felt like I stretched my fingers a little bit more (at least creatively thinking) and decided to work on some of the more difficult yarns out of my challenge box. You know, the ones that I complained about for Week 5.
Well, I took some of those yarns, and got to work!
Instead of making hats, or scarves, or other wintery things, I wanted to THINK SPRING! So using a combination of patterns (The Croco Flower from Ravelry, a French pattern – it had pictures! – called La Broche Crochetée, and my own Cutsie Crocheted Flower), a handful of cool buttons, and some good ol’ fashioned trial and error, I came up with these fun, one-of-a-kind brooches:
Now, I’ll admit I still need to attach the brooch fasteners, but the hard part (design and execution) is over! What’s got you inspired for spring this week?
Looking forward to warmer days,
