I think that I might be done with these for awhile.
Not sure though, they were pretty addictive.
Now, here is the issue.
I lost the link to where I found them.
Forgot to pin it!
How could I do that?
Very easy if you live in my world.
I lose way more important stuff than that.
I am going to apologize up front to anyone that I might offend by posting this pattern.
It is not my own.
If you see it and it is yours,
let me know and I will quickly make amends.
That being said,
I did change it a little.
It was written for one strand and a teeny tiny crochet hook.
Here is what I did.
Dug through the stash.
A little Knit Cro Sheen
Some cotton thread.
Some Perle cotton,
Whatever I found,
I used three stands of these.
I experimented with.
Using an E crochet hook.
Join with a slip stitch to make a ring.
(This counts as first DC)
Make 2 dc in ring and chain 5
until you have five groups of DC and
five chain 5 spaces.
Join to the initial chain 3
Make a single crochet in the top of the chain 3
Skip the next DC and
make a single crochet in the next DC.
Three single crochets,
single crochet back into the third SC
two more single crochet
all in the chain 5 space.
Repeat around and join
with a slip stitch.
Sorry, not the best at crochet directions.
If you have any questions,
I coffee stained some of them,
left others natural.
I use white glue and water,
Critter issues aside,
I am still not comfortable with sugar water or sprite
or any other food product being stored in my attic.
Pin them to a board.
I use a corrugated plastic board,
we are in the sign business.
If you don't have one,
you could steal your least favorite
political person's sign
from along the road.
don't tell anyone I said that.
I think that is illegal.
covered in wax or freezer paper will suffice
keep you out of jail.
While they are still wet,
I dusted them with diamond dust.
Gotta love that stuff!
I have made them before.
Had tons of blue jeans seams and
thought I needed to use them up yesterday.
Didn't lose that link!
And on to the plea....
Finished these yesterday,
I am seriously in need of white, beige, light wools.
I will pay,
I will trade other colors of wool.
I will trade painted pieces.
I will trade wool things made up.
Anyone have any excess?
A Big No-No.
Don't ever put coffee stained items,
that might have some metallic thread in them
The sparks and smoke were awesome,
not so great!
Live and learn.
It is back to work,
kicking and screaming
all the way
for me today.
It has been a nice rest.
You would think my house would look better than it does.
Maybe it is a good thing I work.
Way too much of a procrastinator otherwise.
