Does anyone feel like the year is getting away from them? It’s amazing how the last few weeks of school just DRAG when you are kid, but as an adult, three years will fly by leaving your head spinning.
Since we moved back to Utah, I have just been waiting, waiting and waiting for spring to come.
I forgot about the spring showers (showering snow, of course. ) But I feel a bit guilty, with each coming spring my son is another year older (sniffle).
But the warmth is nice. And in honor of the coming of spring, maybe somewhere in the world, I am releasing my newest pattern, the Bohemian Headband.
**Tips – If you haven’t used elastic thread, here are a few tips.
1 – Make sure you keep it tight! Set up the roll of thread according to package directions, and let the pull come automatically.
2 – Don’t be tempted to give yourself slack. Your resulting project won’t have very much elasticity.
3- Try to crochet a little looser than you normally would. The elastic will pull your stitches tight, and making the loops looser keeps things looking a little bit nicer. It takes a bit of practice, but it is very fun to have a nice, stretchy project!
