After looking at numerous tutorials on the net, I put together this little number. Added a little saying on the front and felt quite pleased with myself. Started and finished the same afternoon. More photos further along.
I also had a go at crocheting some picot flowers which I found over at http://www.attic24.typepad.com. Lucy whips up some wonderful creations, but I haven't quite got the hang of weaving in the ends as I go.
My little flowers look somewhat like floral jellyfish, with their dangly tentacles.
Warning:- this is what happens when you ask someone to mind your market stall and you take a break to stretch your legs. You end up in a book shop and before you know it you have purchased a crochet book by Melody Griffiths,published by CICO books. It's the bright coloured photos that catch your eye and while they have you mesmerised you are reaching for your wallet and pulling out that little piece of plastic.
There go the profits for that stall, but what the heck it was worth it.
Aha, back to my crochet hook roll. Inside there are slots for a number of hooks, also a pocket for scissors and a smaller pocket on the front, for teeny weeny things. I felt the tie was a little too high, so the next one I make will be slightly modified.
I had fun tying it up and untying as I crocheted my way through the weekend. I was like a child with a new toy!!
It was quite spectacular and I can't help but marvel at the beauty of the creation around me and I love to share my corner of the globe with you.
