Time to relax – with extreme crochet

I’ve been too busy finishing Christmas presents to post lately, but now it’s Boxing Day and everything is done.  In the last 3 weeks I’ve made:

2 hats (Harvest Moon and the Boyfriend Hat)



this cowl (Forest Glade)

forest-glade-5a pair of hand warmers (Elin)

2nd-elins-5a second shopping bag like this one (instructions to follow, when I get around to it)

finished-bagand 2lb of fudge (no photo because it was eaten before I had the chance).

Thank goodness Christmas comes but once a year.

db-luxury-silkOn the incoming side, I was given some rather lovely pure silk yarn, and an extreme crochet kit.

And yes, that is a normal-sized coffee table that it’s on.

extreme-crochet-1I’ve already been experimenting with the crochet, and once I got used to handling a hook the size of a broomstick (slight exaggeration only) I found I was enjoying it.

Now, what to make with the half kilo of 18-strand yarn that came with it, I wonder?

About yorkshirecrafter

I live and work in West Yorkshire.  I've always enjoyed crafts of all types, from woodwork to lace-making.  I also enjoy anything mathematical, which makes knitting a favourite pastime, especially complicated designs.  I've been advising businesses and industry on environmental matters for 30 years and also have an interest in green living, especially where it saves me money. I live with my husband and our Maine Coon in a 100-year-old cottage that constantly needs something doing to it.  Fortunately, I enjoy DIY too.
