Well. As you know I am a big fan of knitting and crotchet. Generally I am into any inexpensive DIY projects that do not take too much time. It dawned on me that I had no interest in making soap or candles because shower gel and electricity have served me just fine thus far, thank you. With that in mind, I settled on knitting something for the baby. Truth be told, For my knitting or crotchet projects, I am heavily motivated by making cute little things because of my baby. I always aspired to be that kind of mom i.e. the kind that knits, because everybody knows that knitting moms are super cool! Right? I always imagine one day casually pointing to my warmly dressed child saying Oh that? No, *insert demure laugh here* I didn’t buy it.. I just made it one afternoon when I was bored. Bam! Awesomest. Mom. Ever.
This humble-brag has never happened though. Yet! B-)
The beautiful thing about knitting or crocheting is that you do not have to be an expert to make something beautiful. With all the YouTube video tutorials and crotchet patterns on the internet, you can always find something cute to make. Granted that like mine they won’t look as ravishing.. Trying never hurt anybody!
I have been a little busy so I haven’t had as much time as I would liked for crocheting or knitting however my friend recently had a baby boy and what better way to give her a personalized gift than make cute little beanies and booties for her!
My favorite go to blog for crafts is Whistle and Ivy. She is really great and talented. Also her patterns are very simple to follow. You should totally check her out.
