This week I am making a cushion cover! It started off as a 'playing around with a stitch type swatch', but as I worked in the round it started 'evolving' into an interesting piece. It has lots of texture and depth and I am really enjoying the crochet adventure. I also have the perfect cushion insert. On the yarn front I am using Hayfield Bonus Aran, cheap and cheerful, 400gms goes a very long way, 841 mtrs to the ball, the stitch I am using is a popcorn stitch, pretty much continuously, so using up lots of yarn. Have been writing up some motif patterns for a folder of swatches I received at the beginning of the year, which I will be grouping together as free downloads in some form not sure where as yet, however this will not be for quite a while so keep your eyes peeled. I have also been designing some motifs of my own, probably gleening inspiration from the other designs I have been deciphering. Have lots of ideas at the moment for crochet items, bags seem to be jumping to the fore at the moment, with bead combos etc...... hopefully I will be able to fill the blog with some images soon.
Today I leave you with a cute Kylie pic it has crochet in it too!
Until next time........Nicky xx
