Just a couple of craft updates as the summer is winding down. I did keep a promise to myself to try out Tunisian crochet, which I had been meaning to do for some time. I learned three stitches this summer, as well as practiced color-changes, so I’m ready to make a small first-time project soon.
Meanwhile, the dragonfly throw is making good progress, and I was finally able to source online the yarn I need for the border! So it’s full steam ahead now for the last part of this wonderful little blanket.
Finally, in between finishing my bigger crochet projects, I made a wind-spinner from scrap yarn, from a free pattern by Ophelia Talks. It was such a breeze to make, that I will definitely be making a bunch more of them! In past blog posts, I’ve described lots of other things made using my scraps, including a lanyard, nests for rescued wildlife, and more than one pillow cover.
There are several more languishing projects that I will pick up again once I’ve gotten settled into the semester at work.
I’ll leave you for now with a shot of the very photogenic university where I work – this one shows a lovely pond near my building.
