Maybe Matilda: A lovely beginning

A lovely beginning

As much as I love the feeling of finishing up a big crochet project, there's certainly something to be said for the excitement that comes with starting one, too.
I love picking out the perfect colors (an experience that would be perfect if it weren't for the grumpy craft store employee who always acts like I'm asking her to take a bullet for me when I want to know if there's, for example, more of a certain color in the back room--the nerve of me!), and trying out a new pattern, watching it slowly come together . . .
This little project has been a long time coming, and I'm glad that I finally decided to make some time for it, after months of thinking, "I should get around to that . . . ".

Any guesses?

(Make sure to swing by Whatever Dee-Dee Wants today to see my contribution to her Give Thanks series. We don't have a lot of traditions yet in our new-ish family, but this is one that I sure hope sticks!)


  1. My first thought was some kind of blanket. I have no idea but I LOVE those colors. Those are the colors of my make-believe living room. :)

  2. Those are such adorable little stars! Maybe you could hang a bunch of them with jute or something like that. Garland sounds nice as well!

  3. Soak them in fabric stiffener, add a hook, and you have Christmas ornaments. Should sell like hotcakes on Etsy ;) You're welcome.

  4. Love your stars! I am so with you on anticipation of starting a new project with the new yarn and new pattern. It is so fun! Unfortunately I start new projects without finishing the ones I'm working on. Could be why I have three blankets going at the same time and what do you think I am working on...New Scarfs! Ugghhh!

  5. I've seen some pillowes with this stars! It was soooo beautifull!

  6. Oh my stars! (Hehe, get it?) So cute! I love the grey. I'm guessing ornaments or garland.

  7. Christmas decoration? A bag?Whatever you're making, I LOVE the color combination, and the stars you've so far made are simply adorable! So I can't wait to see the final result!!

  8. Will this be a garland or maybe a scarf? Whatever it is I think it's going to be fabulous. I love the stars.
