Saturday morning headache..

I good time to sort out the yarn haul? Probably not the best idea. But I did it anyway!

I have so many little random balls of yarn that I’ve kept cos they’re too pretty to throw away, but they’ve had no purpose until now. This one is currently becoming butterflies to be random acts of crochet kindness.

I finally got some motivation to do some sewing last night and finish off the random ones I’ve made through the week (mostly cats, for some reason). There are 33 ready to hide, but the weather is looking awful for a while! Still gonna have a few school runs, unless it gets too bad. The tides are pretty high this weekend, so no beach walks. We’ll cope though! One more week at work, then off for a week! (So are the kids, it’s half term..)

Random acts of crochet kindness, ready to head out to the world.

Random acts

A while ago I read about a lady who made little crochet flowers and left them places to makes people smile. Recently I found a groups called ‘random acts of crochet kindness’ where people make little things and hide/leave them for people to find. Having been through painted and hiding rocks with the kids, we’ve ran out of rocks and patience (that last bit might be me with the painted 700 under coats of white), I thought it might me fun. And possibly functional.. since I discovered ‘mystery yarn bundles’ last year, I’ve had more of an organised yarn/wool stash. However, I haven’t got the space for it. I’m not saying I have a problem, but most people don’t have a family laundry hamper full of random yarn. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But it’d be nice to use some of it up.

So I decided to make things and let the kids ‘hide’ them places. We’ve a good assembly line going, each one gets packed in a little bag with a label and string to tie it up. My 4 year old doesn’t quite get the ‘secret’ part though.

We’ve hidden quite a few over the last few weeks, and the first one was posted in the Facebook group (kids are v happy). I guess we made at least 1 person smile!
