Felt What Your Mama Gave You

My mom is in town for the next couple of weeks! We live across the country from each other, so each visit is precious. This one is particularly exciting because my mom is crocheting again.  We have been playing with yarn together and have each completed a felting project.

Mom’s crochet bag BEFORE:





Yarn: Patons Classic Wool Merino

It has been wonderful watching my mother get excited about yarn and crochet this week. I’ve taken her to Michael’s, JoAnn’s, The Yarn Barn, and my weekly Stitch ‘n Bitch. She even bought Noro yarn & a bamboo crochet hook for her next project! I really admire her ability to improvise and create what she wants to without following a pattern. I am still in the habit of consulting patterns before I start anything. Sometime I will deviate once I get started, and it feels good. That’s what happened with my project.

I improvised a small bowl with the same yarn in a different colorway:




We are about to head off to Newport, RI to do some exploring. I’m sure we can be found by a roaring fire in some B & B tonight, playing with yarn…

  1. So you can felt crochet! The bag and the bowl both look awesome! Enjoy Newport – I haven’t been in ages – I love RI, especially along the water!
