Summer. I'm in love with you.
Your carefree, no-where-to-be days.
Your bird-chirping, sun-shiny air.
Barefoot through the grass,
splashing in the pool.
Kids up late,
mornings spent lounging in bed reading.
And lots of time to create and refuel the muse.
Here's a little gift I hooked up for one of my middle son's teachers:
It's a crochet yoga mat bag, and you can find the pattern here.
A simple pattern worked in joined rounds of 3dc ch2.
The hardest part for me was the knitted i-cord, which I abandoned after several attempts and multiple YouTube video viewings (both knitting and crochet versions). With time running out, I just did two rows of double crochet joined with single crochet in an accent yarn. Works for me!
All packaged up and ready for giving.
