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.

Drops

Waffles

It’s explained in swedish with pictures here and here

At last I can bring my mother-in -law some new potholders!

Reflections

Foto-2010In this dark time and place, you need to be seen so you don’t get run over. I found out about reflective thread from LisaMaarit’s blog, and finally last night sat down to experiment a little. I’m very excited, there’s no end in what you could do with this.

Crochet is the crack of the crafting world

Crochet!

I commute a lot, usually I read or draw, but it occurred to me there was more, so yesterday I brought some yarn and crochet needles and started. I haven’t done this for years, and not followed any directions either- I do  a lot of freewheeling- but decided I would try this blouse. It’s so fun! And the  travelling is way too short.

Mending

As much as I enjoy making my own clothes from scratch, there’s something about mending which gives me the utmost satisfaction. Maybe it’s the feeling of bringing something back from the dead. Quite often I have used the piece for a while with a button missing, or an inconvenient hole someplace. When I put the mended thing on, there’s always a happy surprise that it now functions as it should. Since I enjoy the mending so much, I have no intentions of making it invisible.Image
