I really have to learn to crochet

I really have to learn to crochet

The new issue of Crochet Me is up and I really, really need to shake a tail feather and learn to crochet.

Stuff I like:
Galaxy top – a t-shirt transformed by crocheted motifs
Irish Oranges – a mesh shawl with lovely flowers and leaves. I think this would be great made in green with the flowers in different tonal colours.
Crystal Lace Bolero – so cool. I didn’t know you could do ribbing in crochet!


I’ve dropped the first couple of “ladders” and the ribbon yarn is doing exactly what I wanted it to do!

I still can’t get a really true colour representation, so I may resort to using my scanner for the colour, or fiddling with it in Paint Shop Pro.

Over two thirds of the way there!

And Finally:

Does anyone know where I can get some log (45 mm or longer), rustproof T-Pins? Preferably mail order in the UK, but I’m prepared to work for it!

Sorry for the brief, and eclectic, post – today hasn’t been sparkling for me, but my cricket team just won a very close match, so I’m feeling a bit better!

  1. Your “Cup-o’-tea” looks great. I love it when you start to drop stitches. I love love love the T Sirt. I want to make it now!!! ( It is minus degrees so I think I will have to wait!!) I recognise an Australian name in your cricket repor. I heard that there was a match yesterday where 250 was scored off 20 overs!!!!!!!!


  2. That galaxy top is excellent! You can also do a sort of stockinette stitch in crochet, too. I have a book of crochet stitches and saw it in there. Genius!


Because it's just me talking if you don't comment!
