The Inspiration Circle Of Friendship



Pin It

My oh my, crochet is so relaxing! Can you guess what I am up to? A sweater...? Or maybe a scarf...? Hint, hint! Follow the colors in the picture below... They look kinda familiar, don't they? You're right, friends, if they remind you of my first crochet pillow... I am using the same colors for a very good reason. I am making a striped crochet pillow :)



I was so happy to see that lovely Erica from Caught On A Whim loved my triangle crochet pillow... so much that she made her own version, as you can see here. While my pillow had a simple back in solid color, she made her back side with crocheted stripes. Inspiration struck me, so now I'm making a matching striped pillow myself. I can't wait to finish it - hopefully before the summer heat strikes again :))

    1. My mom used to knit (and she's a doctor). Crochet is very relaxing, just like drawing or playing an instrument :)
      PS: I learned to crochet from a YouTube video :))
