After one day of lovely sunshine we’re back to the rain today. Since I’ve been spending most of my crafting time working on the boy’s vest, I decided I needed some smaller projects to mindlessly work on when I get tired in the evenings.
Up until a few days ago I could only do single crochet, and badly. Now I’ve learned how to do double and treble crochet too.
I made a neckwarmer that, like all my neckwarmers, needs buttons. I did a simple pattern of single crochet, double crochet.
I think the pattern looks kind of floral, like roses.
During tiding and dusting the other day I thought it would be useful to have a little container to put my hair ties, accessories and earrings in. So I looked on Ravelry for a pattern and found a crocheted box. It’s all single crochet, so really simple, and I’ve already made one side. I’m going to fold the top down a little bit and might add edging in another colour.
It’s back to the Dr. G vest for me though. I’ m up to the armhole shaping on the back (I’ve made it extra long), but I’m going to have to work on it for hours a day to get it finished in time!
