Crochet For Your Home
Well, the dust has finally settled at Casa de Kitties and Yarn (aka my new house). Now that the boxes are all unpacked, I can go about the business of getting those finishing touches in place; the things that make a house a home. One such thing became painfully obvious as I sat down for my morning coffee and had nowhere to put my drink. I have no coasters!
After about a week of grabbing the closest available magazine or book, I decided to grab my hook and get stitching. I took out my Harmony Guide: Crochet Stitch Motifs and started thumbing through. After all, this was a perfect opportunity to learn some new stitches, and I absolutely love stitch diagrams. I actually prefer them to written patterns. They make everything make sense for me. Also, this is a great stash-buster.
I found some spare bits of cotton in my two favorite colors, red and white. I chose a puff stitch, something I have wanted to try for a long time. In just a few minutes, I was ready to no longer defile my magazine collection! What about all of you? What do you make for your homes?
