I don’t know where this romantic streak of mine has come from of late! First there was pink crochet flowers, then crochet with pearl beads and now doilies for the hair! It must be that spring has sprung!
I have had my DMC 40 pure cotton Ecru coloured thread out along with my .6 mm crochet hook. I love delicate work like that! I always have. The finer the better.
What rolled off the hook was a little hair decoration or fascinator of sorts, I think it’s so quaint and would go well with a lot of the Renaissance style hair up-dos I see around. Pretty, romantic and totally cutting edge science hyperboles with a twist. I like the quirkiness of that!
I need a wig to show it off properly. My own hair won’t work for this colour, fortunately a friends of mine have wigs about the house, so I’ll go visit soon for some proper pictures.
Note: I am going to make more of this style of hair decorations. They will be on sale in Deirdre Minogue’s Shop in Tinahely, Co Wicklow, where I will be working every Friday instead of Saturday for the next few weeks. Hope to see you there!
