Yesterday once of the girls from church turned 10. I decided it was a nice opportunity to make a crochet rainbow that I had seen on a yarny Robin’s blog post. She linked to the original pattern which can be found at the stitch foundry. Yarny Robin had made some modifications to the pattern and I chose to follow her idea to chain 5 and miss a stitch on the final row as I didn’t want the edge to be as ruffled as in the original pattern.
I really enjoyed making it as it only took an evening to complete, so it was quick and easy. Plus I love colourful projects, so it was fun working with the Rainbow colours. It was also cool that by adding tassels I got rid of the need for sewing in ends as I just tied them into the tassels (a definite bonus!).
The birthday girl seemed to like it, so that was good. I might make myself one at some point, but knowing that my 250th blog post was coming up I thought this might make a nice giveaway item for one of my lovely readers. Annoyingly I made a mistake on this rainbow and accidentally did the blues in the wrong order, but I hope that won’t put people off wanting to receive it!
Unfortunately my giveaway is only open to UK readers as I’m not feeling confident about going to a post office in the current climate. But, if you live in the UK and would like a chance to win this rainbow then leave me a comment on this post and I’ll enter your name in a hat and make the draw on Thursday 28th May.
I can’t quite believe that I’ve written 250 blog posts. That feels like quite an achievement given that I was originally just going to blog for a year about all the things I made. But what started out as a year long idea has become a motivation to me to keep crafting. I’ve loved connecting with people through my blog and have been amazed at how many people have chosen to follow me. I really missed blogging when I was pregnant and too tired to craft, and I’m thrilled to be back now. Thank you for reading my posts and here’s to many more of them.
