Well, here it is … finished.
I found this scrumptious Spring Mandala pattern at Made in K-town. I thought it was just the right size for a little post-Christmas project.

This was one of those 3am ideas that must be started immediately.
As my sister-in-law is currently sleeping in my craft room, I had to use the only yarn that was not currently packed away in its appropriate home (yes, I know, I get extra points for tidy-house this week)!
Three more sleeps till Christmas. We just got back from Moo’s Christmas Party with her pals at the puppy park. She is exhausted. Actually, we all are! It’s hard work eating and drinking and being merry!

I’ve been admiring this gorgeous crochet stocking for a long time now.
Last night I was lying in bed thinking about it, and at 3am I knew there was just no use. My mind was whirling with colour combinations, and I had the perfect yarn ~ it would look gorgeous in my Cascade Ultra Pima.
I’m so pleased with how it turned out. The Cascade yarn is beautiful to work with, and this pattern by Yvestown is terribly easy.
Well, I bet that got everybody’s attention, didn’t it? 😀
I was thinking my theme for this year would be “A Handmade Christmas“. Do you think it’s too early to start planning? Or, if I’m going to make some of my gifts and decorations, is it too late to start planning maybe?
In keeping with my Handmade Christmas idea, I have started making doilies. Or maybe it’s the other way around ~ a Handmade Christmas to justify my obsessive doily and bunting production :D.
These patterns (and many more still to come) are all from Issue 8 of Simply Crochet Magazine. I love this magazine. As the title suggests, the patterns really are quite simple.
I made these granny squares as part of the Slugs on the Refrigerator Crochet Camp. It was still in the deep dark depths of winter. I think bunting portrays such a wonderful promise of warmer weather to come, don’t you?
These bunting lengths are not yet in their final position. They’re to go in the light-well down the side of our house. It’s home to old doors, mirrors and slightly wild succulents. I think these colours will match nicely. Once we’ve done a little more spring gardening and the light-well is looking respectable, I’ll take some more pictures.
I hope you’ve all had a lovely week. It’s Friday night here in Australia… I love the promise of a Friday night… wondering what the weekend will hold. I hope yours holds an adventure or two, and at least a little crochet 🙂
Today was the first day of spring, thank goodness. I also just realised that Moo and I haven’t written for the whole of August ~ eek! It’s not that we weren’t crafting, I think it just got to that stage in winter where trying to get enough light for photographs just became all too much work. The house where we live is only 5.5 metres wide, and with the sun so low in the sky, our window of opportunity is rather slim.
But now it’s spring, and I feel like life has suddenly become brighter again! 🙂
I have a few projects still to photograph, but here is the first.
It’s good to be back 🙂
