a new project

This is what I have been working on the last couple of days.

I have been wanting to make these for a while after I saw at a fair I was at in December,
(I traded for this necklace and have been obsessed ever since)
not to mention the fact that I have been wanting to further develop my fairly non-existant crochet skills...

So a little while back I found THIS tutorial on The Purl Bee courtesy of Resurrection Fern.
(btw, if you don't already know about her blog and etsy shop, definitely check it out!)
I still have a loooong way to go to make the beautiful urchin like stones she makes, but I am pretty proud of how far I have gotten!

I definitely had to start over about 4 times,
but after looking up a couple of stitch tutorials on youtube and the meaning of stitch codes,
I was on my way and haven't stopped since.
I actually had to go back to the beach this morning to get more stones!

Hope you all have a shiny afternoon!
Happy crafting!!!
