My Creative Space

Is it Thursday again?
O Boy, it seems to come around rather SnEAkiLy.....
I, decided, this week i would teach myself the ART of the hook, i.e. crochet.
Whilst it has me feeling rather GRANNILY, i looove it.
I am not sure i am doing it quite right....ive got these 'ridges' i would really like to
get rid of. I love the double chain in the double chain. Its totally mad. Its kindof like
lots of loops in one big loop, like dangling earrings?

Its freezing here this week, and i'm feeling sorry for my fruit.
Now they are all cozy... {free apple cozy pattern at this delicious crunchy place }

More creative crunchiness, or not, here.

  1. Hello hello other tassie lady hee hee!
    I love apple cozies thats so funny!
    The ridges may be due to putting the hook in the wron place when starting your stitch. If you go round and round rather than back and forth you seem to get less ridges...but you cant do that with every pattern i guess..ow well i guess thats part of crochet.

  4. that is so cute! i had a look at the revelry pattern but it looks a bit tricky for a beginner like me. at the mo i can just crochet stripes, granny squares and flowers but haven't followed a pattern yet. i like your buttons on your cozies!

  9. i think i could use an apple cozy actually, because i usually wrap my to go apples in paper towel! crocheted apple cozy - much more ecological...

  10. Way to go! I haven't learned to crochet yet, but would love to give it a try. It's supposed to be summer where I am, but I'm thinking that the apples around here would appreciate some cozies to..it's cold!
