… making these:
First time crocheting. If you don’t count using crocheting to finish off some knitted pieces. I had this wool mix, a crochet hook and a book from JoAnne’s about learning crochet in 20 minutes (I bought it a few years back when I wanted to learn how to crochet. never did. until now).
But I did not stop there. I went to JoAnne’s bought a small size hook and some crochet cotton. Then I made these:
I did not use the cotton I bought. I actually used some dmc thread I had left over from past projects. They crochet quite nicely. The orange flower was made using this little how to from The Yvestown Blog. The other two are from a Japanese knitting/crocheting book I had around. I had bought this one more recently. Not to learn how to crochet. Just for the beautiful pictures.
I have already started making some hexagons. Again using dmc. Don’t have pictures of those. Later…
One thought on “I have been a bit distracted…”
The flowers are lovely. Especially for your “first” try.
I have been distracted by crochet lately as well. Here is the proof (http://www.flickr.com/photos/97021901@N00/tags/crochet2011/) Quilting has been put up for a bit of rest. Hard to resist making crochet flowers in spring.
I think you did a great job with “Toss it” I like both the design and the colors you picked. The quilting underscores the design, which I think is nicely done.
LOVE the surfer dude story. Eye candy is just simply pleasant sometimes 🙂
