I've mentioned here before
how much I love the amigurumi
patterns by Brie, the Scottish blogger who writes at Roman Sock
. She designs with a wonderful eye, and her resulting creations are completely charming.
This time, she's back with a travel yarn holder that you can crochet in one of two shapes: an acorn, or a strawberry
. All you'll need to make it is heavy worsted weight yarn, a crochet hook, some ribbon, a few beads, simple crochet skills, and your spare time.
When you've finished, you'll have a cute way to protect a ball of yarn while you transport it, or to dangle it from your wrist when you work on a project.
Brie doesn't charge for her patterns at this time; however, one of her friends is seriously ill and is trying to raise over US $10,000 for treatment, so she's asking that people donate if they can afford to. It's for a good cause, so why not? Details
at her blog.
