Snood it be any better?! (sorry)

I’ve finished a project! Yes it was simple.Yes it was quick. But its finished… even the ends have been woven in!

In actuality, I’ve finished two projects because whilst I was crocheting I could see I would have enough yarn for  gloves or mittens. I opted for Wristers which I have made lots of times before (see here).  I did however tweak the pattern slightly, so that the ribbing on the cuffs was more pronounced I alternated front post double crochets and back post double crochets (US terms)

I’m rather pleased with how it’s all turned out turned out. I used a 10mm crochet hook and created a round of about 64 stitches. I then worked a spiral (like amigurumi) using double crochets (US terms) forming a tube til it was about arm length. I worked in a spiral as I’m really not keen on seems left when joining rounds and chaining up; others may not see it but I do. 🙂

The colours are really autumnal and I’m not convinced the photographs do the pieces justice. Also, lacking a more glamorous model I had to do the job myself. 🙂

A Snood

I’ve wanted to crochet but it has been hard recently. There’s really no reason, as far as I can see, for the lack my lack of inspiration; I’ve found it really difficult to pick up a project. Putting pressure on myself wasn’t working so I decided it was ok to take a break.

Then this week I felt an urge. I rummaged though my boxes of yarn and choose some wool I need to use up (more about that later) and thought about how I could use it.

I’ve started making a Snood. I’m modelling it on a knitted one I purchased a few years ago.  I’m not doing anything complicated as the yarn is so pretty as it is.

It’s lovely to want to crochet again.
