Last Christmas, I had a rush on little crochet snowmen. They are very cute, and they were so popular with the dance mums, that I had orders for five more for this Christmas.
So for the last few weeks I’ve been crocheting parts of little snowmen. It has really started to get me in the mood for Christmas. I hope we get a spell of cold weather though. It does seem a bit odd making snowmen when it’s still well above 10 degrees outside!
My first set of snowmen are a for a lovely family with two little girls. Their favourite colours are pink and purple. I haven’t come up with any good names for these two yet, but I’m sure the girls will!
This trio are for two brothers and their younger sister. One brother’s a Manchester United fan, the other is a Manchester City fan (I don’t fancy being there for football arguments in the future) and their sister is a dancer.
I love how each one ends up different although the pattern is the same throughout. It just goes to show how different yarns make things very individual.
I think the most fun I had though was with my jar of buttons while waiting for Alice in her dance class. Looking for just the right shade of each colour is very important. I was counting on any of the other Mums loving the buttons too, so we had buttons everywhere and I had to promise to bring them again!
