I swear my hands never stop. They always have to do something. It’s like a disease 🙂 But I wouldn’t have it any other way. Sometimes I wonder what people with no hobbies do with their time. Errr…social media? 😀 Most likely. That being said, I spend a lot of time on social media as well, unfortunately. But usually because I’m sharing my projects or digging for new inspiration. Instagram is definitely addictive.
I know I’m not a very good blogger, I lack the work ethic! It can be very challenging to start writting. White blank pages scare me 🙂 But I promise not to give up. I don’t have that many people to share my hobbies with, so there comes the internet.
Lately I’ve been doing way too many projects at once. I’ve been spinning yarn, designing and crocheting, writting down patterns, planning to build a craft room and trying to manage my “business”. Sometimes I squeeze in a walk or two 😀 And my “business” still deserves the quotes, haha.
Anyway, here’s one of the projects I’ve been up to (that’s all I can persuade myself to get into today 😀 ) >>>>
Surprise, surprise..it’s a crochet horse!!!
Ok, not much of a surprise. I don’t know how many crochet horses I already created, but it must be getting near the number 20. But this one is definitely the largest one yet.
If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m what someone might call a goofy person. If you don’t like that you better run away now. I like taking goofy pictures. That is why I murdered the horse :] But he seemed pretty happy with it! Or maybe he was happy because he was finally getting new pants.
Crocheting the pants wasn’t as hard as it may seem. I don’t know how other people do it, but I started from the bottom, so the legs part was done first. Then I advanced in a circle to, ehm, literally cover the horse’s ass 🙂 After that, I crocheted around the body and had to make a hole for the tail.
So that’s how the crochet horse was made. I didn’t use any patterns, just my free hand crochet instincts 🙂 I have to say, the more I look at Instagram, the more I feel like this skill is not that unique. But it’s still quite fun.
