I took a quick break from the shawl last week to crochet up this pretty little bonnet for a friend.
I love it. I love the design, I love the ease of stitching, I love the old-fashioned feel.
I always feel I ought to be practical when I make things (and even moreso when giving things as gifts) so white, since it matches everything, was the obvious choice.
BUT~ couldn't you just see a bit of color in that medallion on back? Like purple and green? Or a pop of bright red?
I am thinking I'll be making a colorful version of this soon! Though I don't know of any new or upcoming girlies in the near future, it will be a nice thing to set aside for whenever the need may arise.
Pattern: Blessing Day Bonnet
What about you?
Do you think it is better to stick with practical colors on projects or to go with your instincts?
Would you rather receive something colorful and unique or something that can coordinate well with anything?
I've been reading Flourish: Balance for Homeschool Moms by Mary Jo Tate.
You'll be hearing more about it~ I'll be reviewing it in a few weeks.
