But onto the penultimate crochet a day photo challenge post. Those that follow will know that I have been joining in on IG to post crochet photos and it has been so much fun. Here are my next 5 entries...
Day 21: UH-OH !
This was a big uh-oh! Moment in my crochet life and taught me so much. A large crochet blanket wide enough to fit a double bed and each row comprises of different stitches. What I forgot to do was to check the tension on each row and see how it corresponded to the other rows. After a week or two of crocheting every night, I laid it out flat to show my friend when I realise that actually it has crept in at the sides and I had lost in actual fact about a third of width, it was starting to look like an A line skirt! I almost cried as I had to frog over 40 rows, all those wasted hours....
Day 22: GIFT IDEA
Men! I find them very hard to buy for and to make for, but I hit upon the idea of crochet cuff links and so far so good.
Day 23: BEAUTIFUL BLUE
This little bag hold my cotton wool in the bathroom and the small square is my super soft
cotton face cloth.
Day 24: CHUNKY OR LACE
I like to crochet with mostly chunky yarn as then the project tends to be quick!
Day 25: AMIGURUMI/ANIMAL
I am not a big fan of making toys but after this commission last year I am more tempted. He was made in the amigurmi style where you just crochet round and round.
Joining in with Amy to share my five pictures with you this week.
