Happy birthday Aquarius! Those born under the sign of the Water Bearer are a friendly, good humoured bunch – the life and soul of any crochet meet or workshop. You’re also intelligent, creative and a fashion trend setter, with a wide range of interests. Most important of all, you are a humanitarian who wants to make the world a better place, so crocheting for good causes such as Loving Hands would be right up your street. On the other hand, Aquarians dislike monotony so there’s a danger you might get bored if you stick to the same sort of projects or techniques. If you feel like you’re in a bit of a rut, why not take a class to learn something new? You can also be an all-or-nothing type, so if a project isn’t going quite as planned you might be tempted to give up on it. Instead, look around for solutions or ask your fellow crocheters for advice – instead of being ‘wrong’, this could be a happy accident that creates something entirely unique! Either way, reward yourself with something nice from our list below…
