Amidst the cuteness of amigurumi and granny squares, there is a side of crochet that is practical, functional and not half as boring as the words "practical" and "functional". I'm furiously trying to hook up projects with the yarn that I have on hand rather than buying more yarn. I figure that if I hook up my stash, my husband couldn't be opposed to me getting new yarn, yes?
Luckily there's plenty of practical and functional patterns to hook like the Biffer Shrug:
This pattern was super quick to work up which was a bonus. And hey, if I make something reusable, that means the money that would go to Swiffer pads naturally comes to me to do with what I will, right? My logic is sound, yes?
I also found this pattern for a yarn stash basket at The Purl Bee. Another great pattern that is fairly quick to hook and is of course, practically functionally useful...and uh...stuff.
I'm taking a short break from crocheting or at least hooking as much as I have been. Unfortunately my fingers no longer want to keep up with the pace so I need to give them a rest. Never fear, I'm currently working on some new mixed media pieces and you never know, some scrapbooking layouts might just pop up here and there. :P
Have a great day! :)
