Trying Wire Crochet

I’ve been playing with wire crochet for a few nights, and I’m not sure how I like it.  I’ve done a few practices with glass beads that I have, and I think they turned out pretty, but I need to practice.  It’s all basically chain stitch with a Size G crochet hook.  I have some […]

Free Form Crochet Pt. 3

Finally, I’m getting around to posting photos of my first free form crochet scarf.  I’m very pleased with the results. It’s quite airy and lacy.  Not quite my style, but I’ll probably end up keeping.  I’m proud of my new venture into free form crochet.

Camera Cozy

A friend on Twitter passed this along to me.  The Blue Brick, a Canadian photography and craft blog (squee!) posted a Canon 7D with a bright purple crocheted camera cozy.  I think I need to make this. As I’ve repeatedly said here, I love it when crafting and photography collide. As a thank you to […]

Men and Knitting

Crochet Crash and Burn

So I’ve been working on doing more crochet.  I can do something that resembles a single crochet, and something that resembles a half double crochet.  The problem is, I always seem to combine or lose the number of stitches I have in my chain.  I have no clue what’s going on, and that’s the truth.  […]

Long Weekend Wrap Up

Long weekends seem short.  Despite the fact that they do fly by, I did get a lot done, crafting-wise.  Friday:  Knit a little bit before packing, because I had to get ready to go to NYC the next day. Saturday:  NYC!  My friends Joan and Amanda, and myself went to see this cool museum exhibit […]
