BRAIN FRIED

Well my brain is fried.
Lol well I have started way too many crochet projects and have not finished a thing.
I need to get myself more organized in finishing what I have started.
No new projects.

Rainy Sunday

It’s Sunday today and very gloomy outside.
Great day for crocheting.
I have a few projects I need to start.
Crochet bed socks for a customer.
Shawl for my mother in laws birthday next month.
My mothers jumper for her birthday.
I’m thinking about changing the yarn I started to make my mothers jumper. The yarn feels and drapes beautiful but the colours are a bit too much like army colours which would look great for a blanket for my son.
Hopefully I will have some pictures up tonight of something.
Happy Crochet 🙂

Friday what’s on my hook

Today I started my mothers present with this ice yarn mirage

Loving this silky yarn but not sure on the green in this mix.
The pattern I’m using is the “simple elegant” sweater by Jenny King Designs
The pattern calls for a size 10 mm hook, but as I started it was going to be way to long for my mother who is 5 foot 2 and it was way to lacy that I thought might get damage to easily. So I have changed the hook size to a 8 mm and am very happy with the results

I love the drape this pattern gives. But working for the first with a oversize hook has some challenges in keeping the same tension so slowly I am working on it.
