So I have finally been getting back into crochet, however I am very quickly creating a big pile of UFOs. I don’t want to go and buy new yarn so my projects need to be small and I am trying to find new ideas.
After searching through Pinterest for more inspiration I came upon some pins from a while back. This from Crejjtion and the stunning blanket from Coco Rose Diaries. Both of these are based on the “Something Pretty” pattern by Mille Makes.
I decided that this would be the perfect project to use the bargain cotton yarn that I purchased from the op-shop a while back. I was wrong!
This is how it turned out.
Maybe it would look better once I had enough to create a cushion and edged it the way Mille does, but I am not convinced. I don’t think I like the multi-coloured effect. I might attempt this project with one of my other yarns! This yarn may be destined to sit in storage for a long time.
So after this I moved on. At the local post office I found a nice Inside Crochet Magazine. After purchasing the Homespun Vintage book and being very happy I decided that it is certainly worth giving a magazine a try.
As you can see by the tabs I found a lot of things to try. The first on the list was some baby booties for a friend.
It didn’t work out. It is all bent and twisted so I stopped.
What I have learnt
- a) I am still a beginner!
- b) I can’t read patterns!
So I am feeling a bit disheartened at the moment. These are only two examples of the UFOs that I have recently created in the last few weeks.
The only solution I can see is to keep trying things from the magazine. Hopefully if I try enough I will be able to read patterns properly.
