Lots of little flowers which will eventually be joined (as you go)
in 3 rows (deep)
each row getting longer and longer & then twisted Mobius style at the end
The only problem is that when I read the pattern I read "sock yarn" so out came my sitting there, unused ball, well, not unused but more of a "I have used most of it making a pair of socks ball of yarn" and now there's some left over and enough (I think) for this next WIP.
But I must go on to say that I didn't read the bit that says "each flower should measure 7cm"
When I got my ruler out mine measured 4.5cm, so I don't know what kind of sock wool / yarn the designer was using!!
I will just have to make more flowers to get the "finished" measurement and probably buy another ball of wool to finish it off!!
So much for trying to use up unused balls!
Next is this hexagon that I made with one of my pupils in class today.
We are following a pattern that is for a floor rug which suggests using double strand super chunky
But for practice purposes to follow the pattern, we are using normal single strand DK
GAD started by unraveling this
Which eventually turned into this!
Errata is that I stated last night I said that my blanket was 12 by 16 squares when in fact its 15 by 16 squares & my husband has worked out that at the end of the year I will have 5 squares too many!
following another pattern with my crochet pupil from my Birthday Flower Book
I keep on forgetting to take pictures of her work,which really is very very good considering the pattern is written in US terms & I am not being too over enthusiastic in helping her to follow the pattern
This is to try to make her read and concentrate on the pattern herself, although I do of course help her when she gets really stuck
So same as last week, I used the flower that I made as the centerpiece for today's GAD & I love how colourful and sunny it is.
I will be limiting the places to 4 persons per group (minimum of 2) so that you each get as much out of the time as possible.
On the Friday the Crochet Fun will start at 1pm, so you can arrive any time after 12 noon for a cup of tea/chat/catch up and the days activities will end at 5pm.
I would then suggest that you go and check into your B&B’s (I will supply details of some B&B’s in the area as soon as you have confirmed your place) or if you live locally, return home for a freshen up if you want to & then we can all meet up at the local pub for 6.30 /7pm for a meal and a drink together.
On the Saturday the day will start at 10am. We will crochet until 1pm when lunch will be provided & after that we will all go on a local walk together, using the local trailway and visiting Shillingstone Station Project (you will be taken back in time when you see this place!)http://www.shillingstone.addr.com/All this is just on the doorstep (literally) and a breath of fresh air will prepare us for the afternoon of Crochet which will end at 5pm.
So this is your chance to bring along that Crochet Pattern you are stuck on, work on that stitch that you can’t master or just learn something new from one of the many patterns available in one of my books!
If there is any specific project that you want to learn, then just let me know e.g. “I want to learn to crochet a poncho” or “I want to learn how to follow a pattern or understand the symbols that I keep on seeing in pattern books” and we will cover each topic in turn.
Refreshments of Tea & Coffee, including cake and biscuits, plus lunch on the Saturday, will be included in the price of £ 85.00.
