A few months ago a lovely lady had a precious little boy... I took forever to finally get stuck in and create a wee pressie for him, but got there in the end!
I first saw this on Pinterest and followed the crochet tutorial over here. Well written, clear and concise. And she even made the distinction and explained the US and UK terms! Very helpful!
I've never used spray starch before and was a little nervous about it - but it worked well. The only thing I did differently was use one piece of string rather than yarn to join all the pieces together - I'm hoping it will be stronger/last longer/stretch less over time... It was a very enjoyable project to work on and I was really happy with the result :)
And now.... I have some very exciting news! Scrap the giveaway mentioned last week... We have a brand new awesome company sponsoring this months' giveaway! If you haven't heard about Skeinz yet, you should head over right this minute and go check them out! Then come back here and link up : ) Because this month they are giving the winner a prize-pack consisting of 10 balls of their Moody Hues yarn range. This is a delicious Merino, Alpaca & Possum blend that is soft and warm and comes in random colours and soon 8 solid colours too. Sounds great doesn't it?!?!
Looking forward to seeing your inspiring creations!
