Hey, Hey and a Little Crochet
I tend to play with my yarn more in the Winter. I guess because it's warm and snuggly and soft. I am not very creative with what I do - mainly squares, rectangles and circles. Here's something I crocheted in a class at my local library. The teacher is from Italy and is very creative. This little sample was the basis for some weaving we were supposed to do. I didn't want to do it her way!

I don't think she was happy about that, but hey - I'm an adult and I just wanted to do something different. I took another project's supplies and used those to let my granddaughter Eva get creative. This is what she did last Saturday. She totally enjoyed this, weaving in and out using VERY fluffy yarn. She took it home and I bet it is a special blanket for one of her Barbies.

Another creative thing Patrizia taught us (which I caught onto right away) was this braided headband. Here are a few of her samples:

And another one, this time braided:
