So first some harts of different shapes and shades of pink were made.
LOTS of hearts, more that are seen here actually. But that part was really fun. I could make hearts when I had just a few minutes, or at night to unwind from a stressful day, or on my lunch break.
Then came the time to assemble all those harts and filling in between the shapes to create pieces of a little cardigan. And that part took me longer than expected for a baby cardigan. Still, it was very satisfying, like creating your own piece of textile .
So, I learned a new way to crochet, gave a hand made gift to a lovely first time mother, and dressed a baby-girl in pink hearts, that's what I call a good use of my hook.
If I were to free form-crochet again though, I'll try to made it a little plainer, maybe by using only one color of yarn of the same stitch. The cardigan as is , is a bit too loud for my taste. Live and learn.
Have you been practicing new skills of late ?
