Yarn & Needles…. Christmas Holiday Hobby

1 Jan
Knitting, crocheting, which ever you fancy… playing with yarn has become some what of a Christmas holiday hobby for me.  For the past few years, when I go home for Christmas, my first stop always seems to be to pick up some new yarn at the local craft store.  This holiday was no different, except for the fact that I started a little before the holiday this year.  
I am totally in love with this knitting editorial for Vogue Girl Korea, October 2010 via dustjacket attic , which served a my inspiration.  But lately I have to admit I have been way more in to crochet.  It sounds a little more old lady I know, but  it just seems to work better for me and if it works for you then that’s all that matters.  
Check out my “Yarn & Needles” pin board over on pinterest for more knitting inspiration! 
Here is a pic of my latest creation, which I am super proud of!  I crocheted this lovely beauty using three different yarns, crocheted as one.  In then made it long enough to wrap around twice and secured it with four real wood buttons to create a cowl effect.  I also secured the inside with clear buttons to keep it all in tack.  I think it turned out rather lovely, for an amateur!   What do you think?

Now for the New Year  my goal is to learn how to follow a pattern and create something a little more advanced… a hat perhaps or maybe some really cute socks? The possibilities are endless!
