Ideas for crochet projects usually hit me out of nowhere. I won’t be doing anything inspiring or even thinking of anything and they will just come to me.
For example, yesterday right before I woke up from my nap I got this great idea to make something for my son’s Easter basket. You know when you’re half-dreaming/half-awake? That’s when this idea came to me. It was really out of nowhere because to be honest, I haven’t thought about my son’s Easter basket until that moment.
My idea: some sort of small chick stuffed with poly-fil that would hold an Easter egg filled with something to make noise. A chick shaker! Or a noise maker?
I knew it would be a great addition to my son’s Easter basket. Although they may be more suitable for tiny tots, my son loves anything that makes noise so this was the perfect little something for him. I got started as soon as I got up and finished 3 last night!
I remember it being the first yarn I used when I started crocheting at 8 years old. And yes, this yarn was the same yarn I actually worked with 18 years ago.
Long story short – my mom hoards yarn whenever it goes on clearance. There was probably a tote full of this light pink color and I still happened to have some of it. Isn’t that crazy?!
