I confess, I am easily distracted! I have a wonderful list of projects to work on, then I see something I like and off I go in a different direction. Recently, Laura over at Love the Bluebird has been crocheting mandalas. First I saw them popping up on her instagram. Hers are sweet and pastel and pretty. I loved them. Started looking up tutorials on Pinterest, checked out some links on her blog. Next thing I knew I was digging in my yarn stash and crocheting in circles! Of course, there are no pastels to be had in my stash. So I started with brights & maybe, just maybe, I will be adding some pretty pastels to my collection (so much for using what you have, right?)
First I whipped up this one (tutorial here)....here)....
I actually found a few pastelly, dainty colors and whipped up a third mandala today! Want to see? of course you do!
This tutorial was really easy to follow and the most fun to make so far! You can find it here, at Attic 24.
This is a bit addictive! Thanks for the inspiration Laura!
