Hooked!!

My crochet addiction continues apace. The Granny Squares are gradually joining themselves together (completely unaided) to form blocks. They plan to become cushion covers aparently.


Not content with your basic 2 dimensional hooking, I've now ventured into the third dimension.


Amigurumi.

Kiddie is suitably chuffed with this concept as she is now the proud owner of a small woolly chick, who sleeps in a small woolly nest and eats very small woolly worms.

(In this picture the worm has crawled away before being scoffed.)

When I visited The Knitting Corner I spotted some fabbo crocheted/knitted bunting hanging from the beams and had to have a little go myself. I found a video tutorial for making triangles but made a bit of a mess of the last few rows (hence the bulge and the 'bent' point) and the edging wasn't great, but I keep trying.

Here's another little play with amigurumi. The yellow is a second birdie and the green is an experiment. Watch this space (in case it works...).



One piece that is working is my cotton rope scarf. I keep ploughing away at the rows of (UK) double crochet - very therapeutic - and hopefully one day soon will have a finished scarf.



So that's me for now. What with school holidays and working..... Ah knickers! You've heard it all before! lol
Will post when I can. Hopefully soon there will be Bongo adventures to share. 'Til then,
ttfn

Funnily enough,I've been crocheting too..but only as the weather was so bad and I couldn't get into the garden!! It's normally a winter thing for me.
Have a good weekend;-)

Ah, I love crochet too! Funnily enough, I have just started making a granny square blanket (not blogged it yet though). It is addictive, I agree!
