After creating all those hearts, I got thinking about other small items. At about 3gr of yarn each, they don't use much yarn, LOL, but the impact is pretty high. I had thought last year, of creating a broach for each month. Something that could go on a lapel, or hat, or even a purse, keychain, or rearview mirror. Whatever. My next item after the heart was shamrocks. I gathered my green worsted weight yarns and started. I found only one free crochet pattern (I just found another one, very similar though).
I also tried it for a four leaf clover. The kids declared it ho-hum and not worth the "extra" work.
All together, I made 6 clovers, though one seems to have disappeared (the one made in a different shade of green). I'm not sure why the colour is funny in the picture above. It was an emerald green. Total weight...a whopping 8grams.
I was also getting into the Easter spirit, thinking I could actually start early.
I don't have much in the way of yellow and orange yarns. This guy just needs an eye and the ends woven in. I also made a white bunny, but I can't find the picture. These two guys each weighed in at 0 grams. Together, with the shamrocks, the total was 9 grams. It'll take a long time to get through the stash making these LOL!
