Mittens

I’m really a fan of these reflective thread yarns from Järbo. I’ve been doing a lot of knitting lately so decided to go back to crochet for a while. This, I hope, will be a pair of mittens. The first one is always fun to figure out, but then I have to make a second one like it and remember how I did it. At the moment I’m confident, though.

C is for collar

20160731_203226.jpgI was experimenting with crochet techniques, but how to use them? Maybe a collar, then all I’ll have to do is make a sweater to put them on.

Drops

Waffles

I’ve been in bed with the flu for a few days, but today I was at least well enough to crochet.

Progress

Glow-in-the-dark hat

 

Here’s another of the christmas presents I made this year, this one’s crocheted with Järbo’s reflective wool yarn as well.

It’s the same hat in the two pictures, hard to believe, but true. It’ll light up when car lights or, as in this case, a photo flash shines on it.

I had originally thought to make sort of a cap, but the reciever turned it backwards, I changed the brim to a flat rectangle that hangs down in the back to keep the neck warm. He claims to be very happy with it.

The sun is a star, right?

I found some wool yarn with reflective thread in it and made some x-mas presents out of that. This is one of them, a free hand crocheted sun to be sewn onto a jacket or something. When it’s light it looks like regular white yarn, but when it’s dark it shines like a star.

Thread trouble

Foto-2011Hm. That reflective thread really isn’t very easy to do embroidery with. This is an attempt for a Doctor Who phone both that I’ve crocheted. The plan was to make the windows in reflective thread, so the receiver can hang it from their bag and be seen in the dark. But as you can see its all messy. The thread is coarse and gets stuck in the yarn. I’ll head into town to see if I can find either thinner thread, or thread mixed with yarn.
