At the moment I don't seem to have much time for personal yarn work. Mainly because I am determined that I am going to get my current tapestry finished well before the end of the month no matter what. Although thinking it about it, I am working with wool to do that, so perhaps it is yarny!
What I really mean is that I don't seem to have any time for crocheting for myself.
Thankfully though I have things to fall back on to help with that. So although this isn't strictly what I am making, because I had already made all of the elements previously, yesterday, I pulled out my crocheted covered wreath form and my stash of crocheted flowers and decorated the wreath.
I decided to mix it up a little and not just have the daffodils. I added a whole array of tiny little spring flowers, some that I had made previously for my wreath and some that I had used for other projects.
It is now hanging on our front door, and after the second time of coming in Hubby even noticed it!
It isn't new, or exactly what I am working on, but it is what I have been working on. You can find my tutorial and pattern for the wreath components here on my blog (free).
I have of course also been working on other crochet which I cannot show you. Funny though isn't it how you know how to do something - or at any rate think you know how to - until you come to try and write it down to explain it to someone else.
For the second part of the yarn along post I could share that what have been reading is letters from the tax office, websites about how to fix my printer (which magically repaired itself with no input from me after I worked on it for two and a half hours) but that is boring. I could also tell you about the book that I am reading, but as I am only about 20 pages in after about 20 days of reading that wouldn't be much fun either.
Instead I commend these two books to you, especially if you are new to crochet. Not only are the proving to be an excellent reference for me to look things up to see if I am explaining them correctly, they are books that I used when learning to crochet and learning new stitches.
Although I know a little, I have learned a lot from these two books! Plus they are yarn related which is way better than tax forms isn't it!
I hope that you are having a yarny fun time with your own reading and projects.
