It feels like I don’t get to see many rainbows this time of year. January is the month that most makes me miss Australia. This time of year in Holland it’s dark, it’s cold, and the wind is almost too much to bear.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. If you can’t get to a rainbow, bring a rainbow to you!I had hoped to have this tutu finished for you this week, but a friend of mine had her baby a few days ago and I had the tremendous honour of being her birth partner. I can’t tell you how much I loved being a part of bringing someone amazing into the world, and I still find it difficult to believe that the entire world didn’t stop to acknowledge what had happened.
But, the tutu. It’s coming along nicely. I’ve decided to go down the skirt and top route and the skirt will be a wraparound so it’s easy to get on and off and more durable than an elastic band. I’m just hoping that I managed to buy enough tulle as I bought from a one-off market and I’m sure I’ll never find those exact shades ever again!
I just love working with the Scheepjes Larra. It’s such a smooth yarn to crochet, especially for a tight crocheter like me! I think the outfit is going to look absolutely amazing. I’m almost too scared to show my daughter the progress in case I never get it back to finish! I think I’ll have to make myself an adult version!
What do you think of the progress? Any last minute tips for me?
