I've been without my beloved Bessie for a fair few weeks now so Crochet has been my craft of
Crochet newbies might be put off by what looks a complicated stitch but the secret is (ssshhhhh) it's just Single Crochet, downside is that it takes longer because the stitch is smaller, but I just love the look of Noah and baby G's blankets.
The reverse side even looks interesting and spiky too.
Not quite able to put down my hook, I'd been planning on making a Leather Kindle cover for Mr Ruby Murray but with sewing machine out of action I tried one in Crochet again with Spike stitch, this time using a Black and White Eco yarn made from recycled plastic bottles ($1 store purchase no less!) and a Cotton yarn in an obnoxious Lime Green (this one's for you Lime Riot!)
Spike Stitch was perfect for this project, it gives a great cushioned fabric for the Kindle and using Lime Green meant no accidental sitting on the uncovered Kindle, winner winner Chicken Dinner :)
Sick Sewing Machine update: Bessie due back from rehab tomorrow.
