Hope you are enjoying the holiday season!
As for me – I’d underestimated the number of items I’ll want to tackle during my staycation. 😉 I obviously have not finished my East Beach Tee, and I don’t think I will before the year ends. However, I worked on a mindless crochet project over a few days, which really took only a few hours overall – a headband for my sister to keep her fringe off her face when it’s not needed.
I thought I’d make my own knitting pattern like I did for my dad a while back – which, coincidentally, also happened at the end of the year, so maybe I should make it a tradition? But then the Simple Twisted Earwarmer by Rebecca Langford caught my eye – my sis had anyway asked for a band that narrows at the back of the head, and the twist would be something new for my yarny repertoire.
I had to hold the yarn double to get the recommended gauge, and after consulting with my sister, I made fewer rows than in the pattern. After all the ‘normal’ crocheting, I enjoyed adding the simple twist.
Before I sign off, I wish you a Happy New Year! Hope it’s the year of all things crafty. 😉
