As I might have mentioned recently, the weather where I live has been literally terrible. There’s been nothing but cloud cover, rain and snow for days. Today was actually the first day with some sun at all. During this time of darkness however, I was struck by how incredibly un-helpful my office environment was. It’s totally dark and closed off with no color and very little light. There is literally nothing of my personality in it.
Clearly this is not helping with the gloomy mood of the past several weeks, so I set out to change it little by little. Originally I was going to just go to the store and buy stuff for my office, but then it struck me that it would be a total waste when I’m already endeavoring to do something new and crafty every single day. I might as well utilize my crafty skills and make personalizing my work space a blog project.
I found this adorable pattern on Twinkie Chan’s site, and you can find the pattern here, and posted below.
Orange worsted weight yarn
Green worsted weight yarn, I actually didn’t have any green yarn lying around so I didn’t make a carrot top
Size I crochet hook
With green, ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring. [Ch 5, sk 1 ch, 1 sc, 1 sl st each in next 2 chs, then sl st into ring] 3 times. Break off leaving about 12 inches of yarn to sew Carrot Top to top of Carrot. Weave in all ends.
This was a ridiculously easy project that took me something like 15 minutes to do. I really want to make more of the vegetable pen cozies, but I will have to buy more yarn in the proper colors. I didn’t have any green yarn so ended up having a topless carrot.
Lots of Love,
