Red Heart Cushion Cover

Hi Friends! It's March! and I love this month that brings the first signs of spring, especially after a very long winter.
My mind is swarming with ideas, but time cuts my work just like a sharp sword. I like the C2C technique and the pixelated drawings, and from time to time I make a project inspired by it.
And since I have boxes and boxes of scrap yarn in my rack (and on top of my wardrobe, basically, It taking over all the storage space in my house), I've designed and crocheted a cushion cover using some of these left-overs. I also came up with another version that can be worked as scarf ends, and another as a coaster.

Sunny Colors Poncho

A good day I wish to you wherever you are, friends! :)

It's spring, the sun is shining, the green grass covers the terrain in front of my home and trees are blooming all around. This inspired me to make this design, a poncho that has all spring colors; green, blue, yellow and white of course, to wear whenever it feels chilly be it day or night.

It's simple and could be knitted to fit any figure. Have a nice knitting day!

Lace Hearts Tweed Shawl

I like spring, for I love the beginnings; of spring, the life circle for plants, animals and the pace towards long sunny days.

In march, at my home country we celebrate many; teachers, women, mothers and spring days, so my first project will be a shawl that has the lace motif heart pattern, which shows my love and appreciation to all women, to the blooming flowers of spring. I hope you all have the same feelings and share happiness with your beloved ones.
