up, up and away in my beautiful balloon


I’ve been having fun with more amigurumi crochet.  As soon as I saw the pattern for the hot air balloon with basket my fingers were itching for a crochet hook and some yarn.  The pattern came together easily and I found some wire to hand the basket below the balloon


then I added 2 people nicely wrapped up in warm hats.

I intend to hang this up near my ceiling so it really looks like they have gone up, up and away.

Oh wow! That's enough to make me throw away the sock wool and head back to crochet. I love it.
