Hello, how's it going?
I've been quiet, I know. After the afghan was done, I took a break from crochet and blogging. I felt that I needed to breath and keep the yarn away from my sight for awhile. So yesterday I picked up my hook again and in the end these two tiny whales were born. These are great to crochet because they are small, very quick to make and most importantly, they provide you instant gratification. I hope Nadila and Jo will like these. No really, they HAVE to like these. These are too cute :D
Pattern is from June.
No no no, I didn't make this! A dear aunt crocheted this cardigan for me when I was about 2 years old. *Awww, thank you aunty!* I'm not particularly fond of the color but I really like the pattern. The best part of it is the sleeve. Very chic for a 2 year old, isn't it? Hehehe. I'm glad that this is well kept by mom. Apart from bringing back fond memories of childhood, I think that this goes to show that crochet runs in the family for quite a long time. And recently another aunt picked up crocheting again after a very long hiatus. I was so happy to be able to talk to her in the crochet language! We talked about yarn, hooks and of course, the ultimate question: "how did you learn to crochet?".
Aunt's comeback project: the ever popular tissue box cover.
I like knowing that I am part of this humble tradition. Crochet may not be the most glamorous thing to do in this world but it is so rewarding it provides us with profound sense of achievement and contentment. And that should be enough, I reckon.
Have a swell Friday everyone :D
