I just love yarn carfting! I love the fact that I can create something fun and functional from a piece of string. And I love the fact that that piece of string used to be from an animal or in some cases, an old plastic bottle. I love the process all the way through.
I recently learned how to cable knit, and love it! (I think I may have said that verbatim in a previous post! hehe) I have also been loving headbands as of late, so I decided I needed to make myself a new headband with a cable on it. Super fast and easy, but also really rewarding!
I had fun playing with design and deciding how 'long' the cables should be. I will try and share my pattern soon.
I also love to crochet, and I definitely better at it than knitting. I have been doing it a lot longer, for one thing. So it is fun for me to get inspiration from something and try and duplicate it. For example, I found this picture on pinterest of a 'bike seat cover' that someone crocheted. I could not track down the original poster or creator though.

Soo....I decided I'd try something like it. I used a much larger hook and different yarn, but here is my version....
I was recently given a bunch of colorful acrylic yarn, and I thought that it would hold up pretty well to the occasional (or not so occasional here in Eugene) weather.
I love the way it turned out! I may have to come up with the pattern for this to share, too.
Happy yarn crafting!
