02/18/08: Crochet CrazyHere is a fun little scarf I whipped up. Crochet is nice and fast I must say.
And so then I cast on for a giant granny square afghan. It is zipping by too. Still just using up stash yarn too. Yay!
This is a close up of the bottom lace stitch. With all the holes it really moves along quickly, but for now I am stuck on the back's top piece, must, finish, somehow.
08/01/07: Berries!Well I still love the wild rasberry bush. We had some lovelies this year!
And me Mum is crocheting an afghan that matched the blueberries she was eatin'.
And of course goofing off in the pool is fun too! I know it isn't really a giant berry. But look you can see me taking the picture in the middle!
06/26/07: More Phildar CrochetSo here is the start of another little crochet project.
I am ready to switch to the brown, might look a little funny in the end but I hope not. You see I am actually being pretty good around here and using up the stash for these new projects, and well I didn't have enough in one color so the pinkish salmonish and brown better work together! The bamboo yarn I am using is quite lovely I must say.
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.
