Apparently (and this is really odd to me) some people don’t like pickles in their food. Why not? The addition of a gherkin can really perk up a chocolate cake!
My point? Oh, yes.
The Scarf [Ravel it].
I have made something out of crochet!
Not only is it crochet, but it’s my own hand spun yarn. I know!
Obviously, it both sucks and blows and is possibly the worst thing I have ever made, but I shall love and pet it and call it mine!
I started with 15 chains (is that right?) to have a scarf 13 erm … cro’s wide?
You may have gathered I have no idea what I’m talking about, but let’s press on.
I managed, somehow, to decrease to 10 stitches and then climbed back up to 11.
I also did two sets of two buttonholes.
I wanted to do one, but I did the first set too early and couldn’t be bother ripping them out.
The “buttons” are wooden beads from an old car seat (not mine, obviously. Maybe not obviously?)
Well, at best it’s “artisan”, in actuality it’s really just awful. Some parts are like pencil roving and others like cobweb. For my first ever attempt at spinning on a drop spindle, I suppose it’s not bad, but I’m sure I could do better.
I have some blue fibre that Lou gave me, but I’m slightly hesitant about making a complete Horlicks of it. I want to make some lace weight yarn with it, but I think I need to buff up on my spinning knowledge.
