Ok this is non-romance related but I'm too excited not to post right away!
Last week I shared a cable knit swatch I had created. Below is the project that followed on the dvd, a cable knit scarf with color blocks, as you can see I didn't get very far, it's time consuming, but also haven't picked up in a week!
These next two projects came from the Klutz Crochet book, which I think I forget to mention last week in my This Week In Books. Between this book and the I Can't Believe I'm Crocheting dvd I got from the library I'm learning a lot more than I did in my class a few weeks ago. In fact, I'm much improved from even a week ago when I was trying to make a simple washcloth that ended up looking like a pyramid, it's so horrible I cut the yarn and stopped and will not be sharing that here ha!
Anyway, below are 3 attempts at a crochet flower from the Klutz book, it's still not there yet but I'm trying! My first attempt turned out with 2 petals because I think I was going into the wrong stitch, so I ended up using a twist tie to mark the stitch! Teal was maybe my 2nd or 3rd attempt, the mixed blue 4th and the purple is today's attempt. I stopped at 4 petals, I can't seem to get the 5 to fit on there naturally.
And this one is a jewelry roll (or a crochet hook holder- which was another suggestion in the book). I was so impressed with myself that for the most part it turned out as a square swatch, before putting it together. I think it's pretty darn cute and didn't take that long!
That's all for this week!
