Recent Projects #5 - Sunshine & All The Bright Colours

Once again, working on a large amount of things for a craft show in a rush had tuckered me out. No surprise there! It took me some time to get things together and start crocheting again, but I'm happy I had a well deserved break.

It took some time, but it seems like our climate has finally decided that my local area is deserved of springtime weather. It's been beautiful and sunny lately. I'm so happy it's finally warming up. I think that happiness is reflecting in my projects too - it seems like I'm crocheting with all the brightest colours as of late, haha.

I've had this book, Geek Chic Crochet, for what seems like forever. I finally had an opportunity to make something from it - a simple neckerchief. It's not the fanciest of designs, but I had a friend that I owed a gift to and I thought it would be cute.

Normally her style is very boho-chic but I know we both love kitschy things from the 1950s and 60s, so I went with a rainbow look with my scraps. It ended up being used to wrap up her lunches - how cute is that?!
