What do you do or give to two young arty people, that just about has everything they need? That was what I was thinking about when I decided to make something for my daughter and son in law’s second wedding anniversary. And it had to be modern enough to fit into a loft apartment in the city. 🙂
This is what I finally came up with. It is their star constellations, embroidered and embellished with beads for the stars, and sequin and beads for the bigger stars. I chose a hoop and attached a small black leather strap, as they have a round wooden mirror that hangs from a leather strap, in the bedroom. Perfect match. 🙂
I ordered this stunning Scheepjes Yarn (Whirl) from BeInspired, as I simply loved it the moment I saw it. This is Green Tea Tipple, not blue, but close. 🙂
I had to wrap my head around crocheting UK stitches / pattern, since I normally crochet and read patterns USA stitches when working on crochet items. I am already getting the hang, and although progress is a bit slow, the darker colour is not to easy on the eyes when working at night, I am looking forward to moving into the lighter shades, and making faster progress. I love this yarn, it is super soft, very light, and I am sure it will wear beautifully and be lovely and warm.
