How are you all? Now that we are in September, Autumn seems to have started. The weather has turned cooler, sometimes windy, but luckily we can still count on some sunshine here and there.
Thanks for all your kind comments and well wishes on my last post. I'm slowly recovering.
As far as my crafts go, it also feels like that a lot of the things I have been working on, I am starting to see the results! A bit like harvest time!!!
As you know, I always work on several projects simultaneously, switching them when I want to.
I have tried not to give in and start another shawl, but sometimes I see something that gets me interested and then I just have to drop whatever I'm doing and try it out immediately!!!
Do you know this feeling???
This was the case with an idea I saw a few days ago via pinterest - check here!
You can find the find the complete tutorial on the blog lulu loves here. Thank you, Emma, for sharing your pattern with such clear instructions. It was a pleasure to make!
Here is how I made the crochet collar from Emma's blog
|My finished crochet collar|
I started out with this yarn from Rowan. It is called 'Revive' in their Purelife range.
This yarn is truly 'green' , because it is made from recycled clothing! It contains 36% recycled silk, 36% recycled cotton and 28% recycled viscose.
I love the 'tweedy' appearance with colour flecks. This pale shade is called Rock and the contrast shade I used is called Diamond.

I hope you enjoyed this little post, please let me know what you think? Oh, and do give this a go, it is such a quick project and great for giving a plain top a new style! Use yarn that brings out certain colours, go for matching or contrasting colours! Let the inspiration carry you along!
I look forward to reading your comments! Until next time!
