It took me a while, but here’s new post!
I’ve met yesterday with a friend of mine and we were talking about many things, Christmas gifts being one of them. This year I don’t have much time to crochet, unfortunately. Time and motivation, I guess. I said to her that I won’t be doing anything this Christmas – every year since I crochet I prepare something small for my family and closest friends: turtles, Christmas trees, snowflakes, crocodile stitch baubles, mushrooms… This year I was to make another Christmas trees (although different from the ones I’ve already crocheted). You know, each year something new :) If you wish to see all of it, I will be posting past decorations till Christmas, and all will be avaliable here.
Anyway, today when I was browsing Ravelry for new patterns, I thought to myself: why wouldn’t I? (I know, I’m not smooth enough coming back to the topic like this, but hey, at least I can continue.) It’s not like I don’t want to crochet anymore. It will be hard to finish everything in time. It will require snatching every tiny bit of time and energy (that I am doing so I can read some books). Yet I can do this, especially with you backing me up :) So the yarn is already ordered (Big Merino from Drops, in beautiful forest green colour), as well as decorative buttons.
In the meantime I want to share with you one of my previous Christmas projects – snowflakes. I made about 30 of them and I still have like half of it. I used some old creamy cotton twist and 5 cm plastic rings.
Original pattern is by Caitlin Sainio and you can purchase it on Ravelry. Caitlin offers many more medalion patterns, each cute and worth crocheting :)
I changed the pattern a bit to match my intentions. I find it very ornamental, with cute little details, so delicate and subtle, almost fine. That’s why I decided to crochet it in the first place, and I must say that I am proud of how it came out. I would make more any day, as it is one of my favourite patterns! And maybe one day I will, but for now my goal is to provide unique decorations, so I am always looking for another patterns :)
