So last Friday I wrote about yarn storage and the lack of space in my Cwtch. A few hours later I found myself trawling the local charity/thrift shops to see what they may have to store yarn in and I ....erm... came home with a wooden chair!!!! So now I have even less space in the Cwtch but it gave the perfect excuse to complete the first item of my Year of Projects - a very simple crochet cushion cover.
It's made entirely from scraps - Noro Aya from Color Affection #1 for the front, edging from Caponcho and when the Noro scraps ran out the back was supplemented by the remaining Mille Colori from my Stitch Sampler Shawl, so it also put a big tick in the stashbusting box. Considering how easy it was to make (2 flat circles of htr) and how little time it took (one evening) I am ridiculously pleased with how it turned out.
You can't beat crochet for a quick fix of colour and creativity alongside bigger knitting projects, and as Nuvem is going to take forever (well, a few more weeks at least) suspect there may be a few more little crochet FOs coming up. In the meantime, head over to Tami's to see what others have completed this week.
Wishing you all a very lovely weekend, and some sun (PLEASE, some sun!!!)
