My new passion is being born and you’re witnessing it.
As you probably noticed by now the last week or so I’ve been busy… crocheting. Years ago my mom and my sister together showed me how to make a single, double and half double stitch… . Since then, from what I remember I’ve made (from the beginning to the end) one thing. A blanket. Many time I would start doing something just to leave it in the middle. I don’t know why. Maybe because some of those projects were boring (like blankets, or winter scarf). Most of those patterns I saw where too complicated and I thought I don’t have the time to just sit and figure it out. I was young(er) and silly(ier) …
When I found the pattern for those necklace I decided to give it a try. It didn’t look very complicated – and as you’ll see if you try it on your own – IT’S NOT. Today after I finished this project I’ve decided to make matching bracelet and earings. I’m almost done with the bracelet… but not sure what to do for earings. Buds or blossoms?!
For those who are interested you can download the pattern for the necklace here:

I didn’t use beads (to stuff the crochet buds) as it says in the directions but instead I rolled the yarn in a small ball and I used it for “stuffing”. Worked great, but… I broke two tapestry needles while trying to thread the cord (chain) through the stuffed buds… . They were plastic, so today I bought a metal one and it worked perfect.
Have a great weekend everybody!
