Bringing a little bit of Canada to Hawaii - Wanderlust Projects

Just continuing on in sharing the garland projects I crocheted up for my camp site at Wanderlust O'ahu. If you'd like to see the other projects they are the:

Half Lotus Bunting
Doily Bunting

Again, this project was a great stash buster for me, all the yarn used was acrylic that I already had. The pattern is the Maple Leaf Banner designed by Susan Badgley for Red Heart. Rather than make only 7 leafs all in red, I tried to capture the fall colours of my childhood in Northern Ontario and did 5 red, 4 orange, 3 yellow, 2 dark red and 1 green, and hung them all in random order.

I loved the look of this finished garland, and can't wait to whip of some more of these leaves (I have a great idea for them), however I struggled super hard with the pattern at first. Completely my own fault (tuns out its important to read the pattern notes before jumping right in to row one). Thankfully there is a YouTube tutorial for the pattern.

 I swear you can teach yourself just about anything on YouTube.

  2. Sometimes life is so unfair and has a lot of challenges to take but it doesn't
    mean it is already the end of the world. We struggle and experienced those things
    for us to become strong, aware, and responsible of our actions. Thanks for
    sharing such a wonderful story.I hope that you can inspire more people.
