Motif-a-Day: Day 5 ~ Spellbound Motif

Hey Everyone!

Today I wanted to share some pictures of one of the finds my mom came across at the kids consignment sale we went to yesterday.

Handmade Socks! While we were digging through some small bins full of socks and accessories for kids, my mom came across two sets of beautifully handknit socks! The white ones above feel like they are an angora blend, they are so soft and fluffy, and their smell reminds me of the days I spent more time in fiber shops.

I feel so lucky to have adopted two beautiful pairs of socks for Willow and any other future kids!

Today in the Motif-a-Day series I'm introducing the Spellbound Motif!

I was digging through my stash trying to find a new yarn to crochet in today, and I pulled out a skein of sock yarn that had a little elastic in it. I liked the motif, but I wasn't very happy with how the yarn crocheted up. So, I think I'll be knitting with that yarn instead!

I was much happier with this lovely cotton and soy blend yarn. It is soft, and has some incredible drape! If you are interested in working with the yarn, it is from Queensland Collection, and is called Bebe Cotsoy.

Today I got a box of yarn in the mail...it was full of some beautiful stuff that I can't wait to show you next week! I'm planning on getting some baby crocheting done over the weekend...what will be on your hooks? I'd love to see on the Crochet Collection facebook page!

Happy Crocheting!
