Last week I finished up my scarf and I have to admit I'm just a little bit happy :) First time crocheting and I actually finished it! It's so crooked that you just have to shake your head and laugh when you look at it stretched out, but I don't care and I've been wearing it everywhere, ha. Bonus is that you cant even tell once its wrapped around your neck anyway!
And naturally I had to make a layout about it! I just used whatever random bits I had lying around for this one, stuck with the pinks because I loveeeeee it. Always the pink. And gold. And whites.
Went with an easy 4 square grid. Grids are one of my go-to's. So easy to work with.
I umm'd about that kite for ages. It's not exactly fitting for the layout but it just..worked! Colours and shape just fit. I was playing around with a bunch of die-cuts and soon as I put it on I liked it but given the layout has absolutely nothing to do with kites, I took it off and kept looking. After hours (seriously) of looking and trying a heap of things, I couldn't find anything else that worked so I ended up just using it anyway! And I kinda like it, fitting or not :)
Those gold alpha's are from Maggie Holmes' Confetti line and they are just so pretty. And I love the fact that there are a bunch of each letter to use (wont need to go buy multiple packs, ha).
And that's it! This layout was one of those things that seemed to take a while; kept playing with it a bit then walking away and leaving it until the next night, and so on. The kite thing really did my head in lol. I guess it doesnt help that I've also started my next crocheting project - a granny square blanket! Going with solid squares in a rainbow of colours! It will probably take me forever to finish but that's the way this crafty thing seems to go sometimes ;)
Thanks so much for dropping by! Hope your week is a great one!!
