06/05/07: Call Me Crochet Crazy
So lately I have been all lovin' crochet. Lookin' at all the granny square afghans and ripple afghans everyone has been making gave me the itch to crochet. Well I can't start another big project like that right now with so many undone, so instead I decided to order me a Phildar Summer Crochet Mag 471 all in French and give it a whirl on a smaller scale. I found my Great Aunt's hooks and am finally putting them to use again. Am making a little tank (pattern 31) that is pretty simple cause it is just a rectangle, which is good since I barely know how to crochet let alone crochet in french. Am using up more sock yarn for this project too cause I have so much!
It is Regia cotton surf, I had 2 balls in a pretty subtle beachy color that I was making lacy knee highs with, but it just isn't elastic enough for that, so now it is going to be my cotton crocheted top. Yippy! Ok so I have not gotten that far with it yet, but it seems to be working out so far and I am excited to finish, hope that lasts cause I want to make so many more crocheted things!
That reminds me before I started this one I started a cute little makeup bag from One Skein. Using Aunt Lydias crochet yarn of some sort. It is very colorful and fun. But I am not sure if it is big enough? Anywho it is the need for a zipper that is holding up this project. Ok so yeah it is now out in the open I have added crochet to my list of fiber craziness.
Oo, I forgot about the cool bobble bag. You should finish it already.
