Crochet-a-long Spirits of Life



Hello! It's been awhile since I've been blogging. My son got sick this fall and has been requiring a lot of attention. Being active on social media has not been a priority, but I did do a lot of crocheting. 
To distract myself a little from all the caring and worrying, I worked on a crochet-a-long designed by Tatsiana from Lilla Bjorn Crochet. Tatsiana designed this wrap based on Native American fiber and textile arts. She called it Spirits of Life and created three colorways, Spirit of the Lake, Spirit of the Volcano and Spirit of the Orchid. Have a look at her website and read all about it. 


Even though I loved the design, I did not quite warm up to the colors that were chosen, so I decided to create my own palette. Blue is my color and I renamed my wrap Spirit of the Sky ;-).


As it turns out, a lot of my followers of Instagram loved my choice of color too and were asking me to share what yarn I used. So I'll list it below and hope it inspires you to make your own version of this beautiful wrap.


Spirit of the Sky

Scheepjes Catona: 248 (4), 164 (3), 130 (2) and 528 (2)

Hope this is helpful. Thanks for showing so much interest. It means a lot.

Till next time,
