Hook Cases


Here is one of the crochet hook cases I made for Tara, Nicole and Kerri for Christmas. I kind of based it on the one I got from my Auntie June, but added a larger pocket for scissors/measuring tape/etc. on one side.

Current Status

So, in procrastinating the writing of an email (oh, and showering. Eww), I've decided to post the status of all of my works-in-progress. Here they are:

A) my crochet version of the circular shrug. I examined the knitted version found here and turned it into crochet. I'm in the process of adding sleeves--I was almost done one, and decided I needed to add some more decreases, so I ripped it out. Here it is sans sleeves though:

I don't know if anyone cares about the process, but I made a big rectangle--20 hdc in the back loop, sc across in both loops, 20 hdc in the back loop. Afterwards, I tried sewing it together, but it seemed weird, so I added a triangle shape to one end on each side, and then sewed together (see picture).

B) the bathing suit coverup from here. I'm using patons grace in snow and a G/6 hook.


C) the motif top. Here is the first motif. I'm not entirely sure about the colour now--I might go look for a different one somewhere else. I don't know yet! It takes about an hour per motif though, and my fingers start to hurt so bad halfway through each one. I have to do 35, so I kind of want to be sure I like the colour before I continue. We'll see.

Yay!

Yay! Now I have a crochet blog tooooo. I'm going to start a new project right now. It's this:
from here.

I was so disappointed when I went to Michael's though, because they only had #10 thread in like... white and black and blue. I hate blue! But then I found one ball of light pink and one ball of rose pink and ten balls of flourescent yellow. I decided on the rose pink (which is very similar to the picture), so hopefully they get in 2 more balls soon, or I won't be able to finish it!

Okay, byee.
