It did mean that as we settled ourselves in front of the tv for a dvd fest, it meant I was able to pick up the old crochet hook again!
I did have 2 works in progress, which I had been working on leading up to Valentines, and that was 2 ' Love birds '. A continuation from previous hanging bird decorations - I took it a step further and made them a little larger so I could add some heart wings shaped wings !!
I had every intention when I made these to write out a pattern to post on here, but I found it was'nt that simple. As I work free-hand and don't follow a pattern, I don't have a set amount of stitches in each round, so each bird is unique. I tend to go by the look and feel as they grow, dependent on thickness and texture of yarn. I add in or take out stitches where necessary, so they just take their own form. So my next task will be when knitting a new birdie will be to make a note of what i'm actually doing, so hopefully on the next post i will be able to have a pattern available...
I'm hoping to try doing some flowers soon, firstly it will continue my on-going crochet learning plus I can do some bird and flower combinations in the future especially with Spring around the corner *she adds with hope!
