I've been meaning to post about the crocheting I did on the holidays... it doesn't look like much, but then that's because I'm not showing the ten or so rejects ;) I printed off the hexagon pattern from Lucy's wonderful blog, Attic 24, after getting the heads-up from Christina.
Since we've been back I've been steadily adding to them... including having a go at the fancy-pants* method of joining hexs as-you-go (see detail below).... lots of mistakes, of course, but getting there :)
The other crochet project this week was inspired by a very talented blogger... Renilde creates these fabulous flat cushions and I decided the outdoor chairs here need some of these super groovers... So, I started hooking. I'm using a flat-circle pattern from Attic 24 (I really love Lucy's patterns, obviously!). ANYWAY... work in progress is below.
They're a bit wobbly at the moment because the white yarn is a slightly different thread size... I'm hoping they will press flat or that when I make them into cushions I can stretch them flat... or something ;) I used a Serendipity Tweed from Tangled Yarns and it has a nice fleck to it. They've advised me to soak and tack it.
Sorry... long one from me this week! I promise next week I'll be briefer. There's a lot of other Creative Spaces to check out over at Kirsty's. Visit Kootoyoo to find them.
