Roses to reduce stress levels…….

DSCF1148
I made a decision that tonight should be dedicated to crochet and have made two flared roses using Debbie Bliss, ‘Andes’, alpaca and mulberry silk blend. A purple and a grey. Stress free and relaxing to make…… The doily with the little pansies was another charity shop find. DSCF1154
The pale rose is made of bamboo yarn.
As for the collar I have a devised a plan!!
1) Work at the table so that the pattern is easy to follow. (NOT slumped on the sofa!)
2) Concentrate. (DO NOT attempt to watch the television at the same time!)
3) Writing the pattern rows out to gain familiarity with the pattern and make it easier to read at a glance with colour coding for repeated stitches.
This morning I did one complete section of the pattern without a mistake! Only 156 more rows to go……

About hookandply

I am a painter and maker. I love experimenting with colour and textures and I find wools and fabrics irresistable. I was taught to knit by my mother and have always felt comfortable with all things knitting but about two years ago I started to learn to crochet and got hooked. I have various projects scattered around the house so that I can pick up a project wherever I am. If I go out I take some trusty crochet with me to do when I am enjoying a break in a cafe. It is a good starting point for a conversation. Has anyone else found this? My most resent passion is Lindy Hop and the 1940's but that is another story.
