It's the little things that get to us isn't it?
Like this little thing above. That's been getting to you all, that's for sure.
It started with this picture. A collection of bits and bobs intended as prize for the Blanket Along we were doing at the time. Then, there was this picture on Instagram. What stood out in those pictures was that little teeny tiny strawberry it seems.
I'd whipped it up as a little extra something to go in the winner's parcel. Then I made one for me too, because I had a new pair of scissors that were lacking that certain something.
Well, what do you know? It seems that many of you are quite partial to the idea of a little strawberry something for your scissors too. I don't blame you, it's very handy. I always like to have things dangling off my scissors, they seem much easier to find that way. They lay over the arm of the sofa or edge of a basket nicely and this one has the added benefit of being somewhere to keep a yarn needle or two to hand.
In fact, with all the end weaving you find yourself doing in crochet I'm beginning to look on these things as an essential bit of kit. So much easier than trying to find where I happened to leave my pin cushion last time as the scissors are always with my hook and yarn.
What do you reckon? Have I convinced you that you need one too?
The pattern links are all coming up for you but, what's even better is that I've come up with a cunning plan so that you can get the pattern for free. Pretty good eh?
