Here's a project I began a while back. Like 6 months or more. Remember when I taught myself to crochet?
It's based on this lovely inspiration.
And this has some instructions.
But you can see I went for a more limited palette. Maybe I should have photographed it on white so you could get the idea...
I had no pattern to work from. So it took me a while to get it "just right". Or the way I want it anyway.
I could possibly someday write a pattern if anyone's interested, but I don't think I have too many crocheting followers. And it will probably be a while. And I'm telling you it's not the best. And I'm still working on figuring out the continuous method for all the white that joins the circles. So that's a lot of buts/ands.
Anyway, I've done about 50 circles so far. Seriously I'd better write down the pattern because I've stopped working on it for a while and by the time I get back to it, I'll probably forget it.
I estimate I have like 175 more to make. Yikes!
Most of these already have the ends weaved in. I have to say that's the part that sucks the most. It takes nearly as long as the actual crocheting.
p.s. Did you notice I refrained from talking about how infrequently I've been posting lately? You did? Oh, well, I guess I blew that now.
No really, I'm trying not to whine about my failings as a blogger and just go with the flow. I'm super-busy and will be for at least the next two months, so set your expectations low.
But, I have been working hard on the next fabric collection, for those of you that care.
