I’m moving cross country in three month’s so my posts have been a little sparse with all the preparation and house hunting I’ve been doing. I promise to make up for it when I get settled. In the mean time, I’m still trying to keep up with my motifs of the month, even if they are incredibly late.
This one is a basic leaf (really, all I had time for this month, next month’s is much bigger), but it’s great for so many things. Use it with flower motifs or as a filler in a scarf, shawl or even blanket. It’s only one round big so it works up super fast.
This month’s motif is a take on the classic granny square. Just like a granny this can be made as large as you want, but the look is totally different. There are solid spaces of double crochets on the sides and cluster stitches on the corners.Use as many colors as you like.
I’m starting a new tradition for my December motif of the month. I’ve decided to do a different snowflake each year. So here is the 2nd in the series. You can check out the pattern and video tutorial here.
I found these cute little desktop calendars a few weeks back. It has a yarn quote for each day of the year. I bought one for myself, and an extra for one of you. Leave a comment below letting us know your favorite month of the year to be entered.*
The new motif is here. I’m calling it a Bicycle Wheel, because that is what it reminds me of. It’s a really easy and fast motif. You can make one in minutes. Put them together to make a cool shawl or scarf.
