Trying my Hand on Crocheted Necklaces




This is my first try with this technique. I did it mainly to prove to my grandson that I could do it.

Done in cotton thread. You can see it in my shop here:

 As you can see, I am crocheting again, but keeping to wool and acrylics. This photo is taken in natural light from a window facing north. One of my favorite yarns in mulberry wool with multi color accents and an accent of white.

I wanted to do an Architectural hat. Has terraces on top and a leaf on the side that is crocheted as part of the hat, not added on.

Going with the same theme, Architectural, terraces, I chose a tangerine acrylic and a wide band of the multicolor acrylic yarn used above.The tassel and flower are add-on's.

I really love this one!

Sheepishly, I admit, I never read the camera manual. My Kodak has a setting for manual exposure, the one thing I was mad about not having! Sheesh, after owning and using it for 6 months!!!!

When the Pup Wants to Play Ball

When the Pup wants to play ball and I want to watch TV, I have to crochet. I've had him since he was 8 wks. old, so he knows that when I crochet he is to leave me alone. Last night, I made this. I didn't have anything in mind, just crocheting and watching the TV.

Doing some crochet again

Fun Hat


Started doing some crochet again. As long as I keep it simple and use soft yarn, I'm OK.

I didn't list this one in my shop.

Update on wrists

For those who missed it, crocheting with the raffia ribbon was tough on my arthrytic  wrist. I love the results, but the process is hard. I will crochet with the raffia again, but not every day like I did before.
