Whilst watching the swans graciously gliding, I caught sight of their webbed feet paddling profusely beneath the strong tidal river. There was even a comedy moment when one skidded to a halt, at an angle much like the skiers and snowboarders do!
So, as Spring is showing signs of springing and the blackbird sings his tuneful song dawn until dusk, I have been hectically hooking in the background - behind the blogsurface!
During February I hooked some hearts
This one was for my Valentine...
It is made from two strands of the fabulously colourful Easyknits 4ply I had from my birthday
Its amazing to see the zingy colours change with each stitch and its such a pleasure to crochet.
I used my petal pattern from the plarn snowdrop, stitched two together and stuffed the small pouch with short ends...lots of reminders of my previous projects!
I love the three dimensional nature of the final shape!
....nooks and crannies!
The added bonus is that I can see the wonderful colours everyday, as it is still on display!
From the same wool...this granny pocket heart was sent to a friend ....
and this one, using two different strands, to my Sister-in-Law for her birthday...
All in all a hearty 25gs busted.
My petal pattern has been modified three more times for a couple of Easter projects and another floral motif....looking forward to sharing those soon too!
