I am so excited about how this month went. It has been a while since I crocheted using thread. Just to review this was Big N Small Month here at Crochet with Passion. We had a choice of either (or both) crocheting with bulky yarn or thread. At first I chose thread but couldn’t resist at the last minute getting one project in using bulky yarn.
At the beginning of the month I had decided to finally crocheting 6 Sculpture Crochet Ornament Angels . (I had brought the kit a while back)
I was blessed with a skill in crocheting but unfortunately I am very good with a glue gun and trimming. I would like to thank a dear friend of my for helping me finished my Angels. I do not think they would have looked as nice if I had done the flowers.
In addition to the angels I crocheted two 8 inch doilies. One I gave to a new bride and the second I turned into a Lacy Bowl. Although I have known about this for a while it was my first time making one. I have to say I was thrilled with the results and am always excited about trying anything new in crocheting.
Finally I got a good jump start on crocheting a 27 inch X 43 inch table runner. I was able to complete 68 of the 170 rows. I guess I was a little too ambitious; I keep forgetting I am slowing down on my crocheting speed as I am move more and more into my golden years. I plan on working on this throughout August in addition to some other small projects I have planned. I am determined to finish this in time to hand it to my Mom for Christmas.
I was going through my yarn stash when I came across six skeins of yarn that were given to me. It was Bernat Velour in the color of Teinture. After looking at for a few years and seeing it was a larger yarn, I decided to crochet a scarf with it. Unable to find a pattern I liked I just used one that I knew and then trimmed it with two rows of a single crochet. I was able to use all of the yarn and now I have a pretty scarf for future use. I love yarn but until we use it, it is only something laying around my house.
Side note: As a result of the quarantining I was able to remove a tote of yarn from my stash that I had used in the past six months! Yay!!!
Although I did not finish everything I wanted, I think it was a pretty good month. I designed the Crochet Theme Months to cover every type of crocheting in a course of a year. So this year I was able to work with thread and bulky yarn for July.
What are some of the projects you did for Big N Small Month? Always anxious to hear from you.
Until Next month keep those hooks flying.
