Crochet In The Bold Corner

It has been too quiet about this place for the last week or so, all due to much teaching of crochet and many very capable hands turning out well defined crochet stitches.

I am also busy preparing handouts for my next workshops in Denmark; or rather, I should be doing that as they do not just manifest themselves just because I have crochet the relevant samples. I have not yet mastered the art of printing them out straight from my brain – if you have found a way, please let me know.

As I said, I should be preparing handouts but my imagination ran riot the last few days and I started no less than four different projects, and they are all in a state of non-completion. I am being very bold and I had to send myself in the bold corner.

That move proved counter productive and matters escalated in that corner as I found about 100g of yarn that just had to be crochet there and then. The crochet has absolutely no relevance to the workshops I am preparing other than I just may be able to turn it into a pretty cushion cover, that way it fits the crochet “Living” workshop I’m doing. Can’t you imagine this crochet stretched over a pretty piece of violet coloured silk? My imagination can, but I really do not have the time for these sort of ideas popping up in the middle of an otherwise well scheduled time plan. Fortunately, I don’t actually have enough yarn to complete the project – and I don’t have any violet coloured silk either. Yet…

I better get back to those handouts… Are you good at being disciplined or are you bold like me?

I Knit Too, You Know

I have just rooted out my nifty little set of short 3 mm DPNs for a few hats I want to make for the Innocent Big Knit in aid of Age Action Ireland as I might one day need some age action myself.

I was looking through my stash of juicy coloured yarns while I was at it and I fell over some Kauni Effect that might just work. However, the Kauni reminded me that I have completely forgotten to load my free knitting patterns to this site, one of which is The Rainbow Scarf that is worked in garter stitch throughout. A handy number, if you ask me.

I have heard people saying that Kauni Effect is too itchy around the neck. Itch and scratch in yarn is never an issue for me but I did have a think about a possible alternative yarn that might be suitable and I think the fun Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Sock Yarn would be a real good alternative.

Having fondled the Kauni Effect and thinking you-know-what-present thoughts… I thought I would make the free PDF pattern available here. Click to get yours:  The Rainbow Scarf – by Irene Lundgaard
