Do I have a problem?
Being school holidays still in nsw I took my 3 kids plus 2 to see Kung Fu Panda 2.
Now some kids movies are fine with hidden adult humour. But I really would rather be doing other things than sitting through a kid's movie.
So when I contemplated taking in a book light was that really wrong?
But I wasn't going to take it in for a book , I actually thought I might be able to do some crocheting!
Does this mean my crochet hobby has turned into an addiction = problem??
But but but I didn't.
But I did find some other time to do some hooking. Yay!
It seems that someone else was hooked on necklaces in last weeks creative space. This lead me to create the circles necklaces.The photos show it being worn in different configurations.
Thanks Megan !
And thanks to another blogger Jo for her inspirational "boring dress" I went on a mission to create a similar dress. Only one problem - the pattern ( simplicity 3835 ) Jo used is out of print. So after an unsuccessful search I found this pattern which is pretty close.
And ta da.
Well now I see it like this it reminds of a robin hood outfit I made for my son last year!
Just need my bow and arrow.
I did have to alter the pattern. It looked like a sack first up. So I took it in around the bust and made the belt. Jo's dress tapered out at the base and definetely had a bit more style. I 'll try to do that next time.
The belt is treble crocheted using Zpagetti yarn from here and a chunky brown button from my stash.
The yarn was just perfect for this project which required a bit of weight. And using a treble means the button can go anywhere along it. Truth be told I was more happy with how the belt turned out!
Currently hooking some granny squares for an exciting new project.
Hey but also need some HELP with a "to try" item (see side bar). Does anyone have a pattern for a kitchen towel crochet topper ?- you know so it can hang from a handle.
Thats about it . But make sure you head over to our creative space for more inspiration.
