A little crochet
My sister and I went to the Stitches and Craft Show here in Melbourne a month ago. I hadn’t been to this one before, but enjoyed it immensely. Though smaller, it had plenty of vendors and stalls and free parking! I found it to be more intimate overall, and while it was quite crowded in the middle of the day, was pleasant towards the end of the day. So I recommend it!
My sister was planning on participating in a class on crocheting snowflakes but we were too late and the class was full. So instead, we were able to join Prudence Mapstone’s class on double-hook crochet.
It has been a really, really long time since I last crocheted, so my initial stitches are quite loose and inconsistent, but I’ve gotten back into the swing of it. I’m enjoying the change from stitching, but that last seam on the Winding Ways quilt keeps calling to me. I just hate ironing and I really need to do that first!
Anyway, this is the project that has been accompanying me on my commute to work. I’m thinking of using up all the yarn and somehow doubling it up to make a thick, reversible infinity scarf. Of course, we are heading into summer, so I have plenty of time to get it finished.
