i ♥ yarn

Since learning to crochet and knit late last year I've put off learning to actually read a pattern. I made up my own pattern when making this purse and otherwise stuck to basic things such as this scarf and this clutch. In the new year I am determined to learn to read the many pattern books I've acquired and create fabulous items such as those in this mosaic I've compiled above. Below are a handful of projects I've seen recently that I would just LOVE to do if I had the talent, money, and time.

I know how you feel. For some crazy reason~ reading patterns (sewing) just doesn't come easy for me. It's easier to look at something and tinker around with it, but usually takes forever to do. But I'm working on it.

We will keep checking in to see what you have created.
