As promised here's the pattern of the little crochet stars!
Crochet two stars using the following pattern. Start every star with a ring in which you crochet the five sc of the first row.
Afterwards, add mouth and face using black wool and hook them together with slip stitches.
Yesterday, my parents came over for brunch. And look what my mother brought me :) The Strickliesel so reminds me of when I was a little girl! Unfortunately, I don't know the English word for it. dict.cc suggested knitting Jenny but when I googled that, I only found pictures of way larger knitting helpers. But I'm sure some of you can help me here :)
Well, as you can see I started right away, I've knittend about 90 cm already. And I'm still trying to figure out what exactly I'm going to do with it. My friend Kristin made coaster for her tea pot, maybe I'm going to do the same, let's see.
here's project #5 for my No Buy Challenge and project #3 for the Stash-Buster Challenge (see sidebar for more information): Owls!
A couple of weeks ago I found these amazing Crocodile Stitch Owls over at Ravelry. Unfortunately, the pattern costs a few bugs and as those challenges are about not buying anything for your projects I had to improvise. Turned out quite good, don't you think :)
Here's my next project for the No Buy Challenge as well as for the Stash-Buster Challenge: A Little Bee!
I hooked this little bee on request by a good friend of mine. Even though it's pretty small I used only yarn from my stash and didn't buy anything new for it and that makes it a project that fits for both challenges.
