Even though the last few days have been unseasonably mild here in upstate New York, I have been getting the urge to pull out my yarn, crochet hooks, and knitting needles which I have not used in a long time. Fortunately, it is like riding a bike, you never forget once you have done it! I have been very inspired by a blog called Flowermouse. Lone is a very prolific knitter whose pace I can only dream of matching, and her blog is an explosion of color. She also creates beautiful items in polymer clay and felting! Anyway, she has inspired me to make something, and the first something I made is this crocheted baby hoodie. It was a free pattern from Bernat yarns--you know, one of those tear offs you find in the yarn aisle. I used a regular worsted weight yarn because I wanted it to be heavier, like a jacket. I plan to give it to our friend's daughter for her new baby girl at Christmastime.
So, do you knit or crochet? Do you, like me, get the urge to do either when the weather turns cooler? Do tell!
