Well this has to be one of my maddest ideas ever! I saw a beautiful crochet chain in a shop knitted from Noro or something equally not the right shade and the concept was so cool but the end result was dark and dull. Yet another (insert many expletives) failed knitting attempt meant that I would have to try crochet one. I didn’t find a satisfactory tutorial online so I made it up as I went along and although I know how I will make the next one better this one is awesome! It’s so cheerful and bright and although it photographs like crap it looked amazing hanging in a tree.
It also looked pretty good hanging on my neighbours rusty washing line:
It’s one of those perfect whimsical things that I look to look at and go “Wow, I made that myself!” and it makes me smile to know that I make cool things 🙂
I swear the second I get some free time (it might happen one day!) I am so going to make one for myself. I could pretend it’s for my future child but I’d so be lying. It’s totally going to be for me. You can never have enough whimsical, fun things in your life.
