Here are my latest parcels, but wait I’ve only ordered some more and they have arrived.
I was hoping KJ would have been at work when the postman came, but he wasn’t and he took them in OMG, so I best behave and not order any more or he might start moaning, well that’s after the next lot arrives because I had a few bids in an auction from China so that will be my last for a while.
I will be make another video of my next lot, so watch out for that one, I love receiving parcels it is so much fun seeing what I have ordered…
OMG I have a banging headache a bit like a migraine and I feel like laying down and doing nothing, I am not sleeping properly due to KJ snoring he is so loud.
I have so many inspirations to make things whizzing around in my head and I can’t do any of them so I have no choice but to give up today.
I am diabetic and that normally makes me feel like rubbish every morning and along with this headache, I just feel done in.
I tried to change my pink top using a No.6 hook and it just kept going wrong, you know what I think it is the yarn, it is too thick it would be more suited to a scarf I think, so I have gone back to normal double knit yarn, I did a row of pattern but that’s it until I feel better.
I thought I would share a lovely Rose in a vase, I drew this many years ago and will be doing some drawing in the near future but right now I’m going for a lay down…
Well I crocheted 5 rows of my lovely pink top I was making, I wasn’t happy with what I had done so far, it was very very long and a bit stiff and it gave me a bad feeling that it was no good, so today I have undone the whole thing, took me while, but it’s done.
My mind took over and I have decided instead of making the top as a whole, I am going to start again and make the front and back separately.
First I am going to make two more swatches on bigger crochet hooks, the original was made using a No.5 hook, so I will be doing the new ones using a No.6 and No.7 to see if it comes out a bit looser.
I am so inspired with this top now, I have all kinds of ideas in mind, I was going to have a couple of over the shoulder straps at the top, but now I can see sleeves and I can’t wait to get started…
I have decided to re-vamp my wardrobe and crochet lots of clothes for myself, so looking forward to these projects, here is my first one…
I am so inspired!
I was going through my yarn stash and came across 500g of Cindy Fancy Yarn in Pink, it feels like a very loose twined yarn, it says it is double knit but it feels a little bit bigger to me.
So I’ve crocheted a small swatch in this fabulous pattern, it is a lot pinker than the photo shows.
I am making this pattern up, I have done some calculations for a ladies sun top. So far I have done 2 rows of pattern and the width looks huge so I don’t know if my calculations were any good lol, anyway if it comes out too big I can always undo it – I have had some more inspiring thoughts – if it does come out too big I will be trying something out rather than undoing it, follow my blog to find out, it’s exciting.
I took the measurements from an old top of mine that is looking a bit worn, so if this comes out good I will bin the old one and then I will go mad and make lots in different colours, fingers crossed.
So I will update how I’m getting on in future blogs, so don’t forget to subscribe, then you won’t miss anything.
