About Spring Casual

Me, Yarns and the Hook

For some time now, I've been trying hard to create stylish and cozy simple accessories with the most basic material and using the simplest tool on earth. Instead of selling the items, I am focused on creating the pattern for it. Because crocheting is fun, soothing and gives the pleasure of creating something that can be used.

I wouldn't want to take away these positive feelings away from others. ;)
