With the change of the seasons, comes a shift in my crafty habits. As the leaves turn to red outside and we light the fire to warm our little farmhouse, balls of yarn are pulled out and crochet hooks laid neatly alongside, patterns are researched and projects earmarked for hooking over the coming hibernating months.
Of course, I’ve gone in as an eager beaver – starting far more projects than is necessary and turning our couches into professional crochet project holders. Baby blankets are on the go for this Winter babe of ours, just as I did with Eleanor: a boy version and a girl version, works in progress currently but will be ready and waiting when our new family member joins us in July.
Other new babies joining our friends and family are keeping my hooks busy also: baby cardigans, hats and blankets. Some quick and easy projects of a few evenings or moments grabbed here and there, some quite the achievement after months of tedious work. And of course there’s the projects I’d like to get done for Eleanor for Winter, she is without a beanie that fits currently (terrible, I know!) so this has to be rectified. I’ve also got this chunky number halfway started, and grand plans for this seemingly easy but adorable jumper. I am this close to having this dress finished for Eleanor, in a lovely pink Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn. As usual though I bet it takes me all Winter to actually complete said projects, so poor Blossom will be well rugged up come November!
