I love to crochet because the results are so tangible. I can turn a tangle (well hopefully not too tangled) mess of yarn into something that surprises eyes and fingers with a little bit of joy.
I love finding yarn at thrift stores and using up the odds and ends of what I already have to create something a little off-kilter, different, and completely unique.
The color combinations can be enchanting and alternating texture and thickness can be a fun challenge.
Every now and then something turns out not quite right, or I have to redo more than I planned, but so often the things I make just spark a special glimmer of joy for me. I love the process.
And I love being able to hold each animal, pumpkin, blanket, or owl in my hands and see just what I made.
I often list and share what I make on Instagram, but I always feel like something is missing because people can’t pick each item up, touch the threads, and feel the fun and love inside.
But maybe that’s just me.
Here are a few things I’ve been making lately you can check out more on Instagram at Boho Pumpkins. For some reason pumpkins are my favorite, but I love to make all sorts of things.
Linking up for Five Minute Friday again! Come check it out :)
