I tend to make something for Donald's sisters and their husbands that's for the house, so it's something I can give to both of them as a couple, and hopefully they will both get some use out of it.
This year I decided to crochet them both a little cactus, as I love the ones we have on our kitchen window so much.
I used the same Cactus by Yarnplaza.com pattern I used before. I made one design I had made for myself, but decided to make a different one as well.
First up we have the same design I made for myself, the cactus with the coloured ball on top.
And next up we have the different design I made, the circular cactus with the flower on top.
I really love the circular cactus, and sort of wish I had made this one for myself as well. If I ever grace our kitchen window with more crochet cacti, this one will definitely be getting made.
I am also in love with this green yarn, which is Seaspray Mist Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn. It gives the cacti a lovely effect, and makes them look a bit more realistic than a solid colour would have.
This time I popped them in these cute little home mug I got from Asda, as I thought they made a lovely little planter for them.
I also put a little gift tag on each of them to give them a bit of an explanation!
I love these so much! Crochet plants are definitely the way forward. You can make them in any colour you want and you don't have to worry about watering them.
