So last week I showed you a sneak peak of my latest make. I'm trying a new yarn, made by Ice, which comes from Turkey. I had seen and heard alot about their range, and in the end could not resist temptation at the various different shades. I chose a grey/purple mix and I was pleasantly surpised at the softness.
I chose to try the star stitch for texture this time. It was actually featured in this months 'Simply Crochet' magazine, but i struggle sometimes with written pattern, I like a visual to understand, so I went back to my usual resource at the crochet spot site
Once I got into the flow of the pattern I enjoyed it, it has a nice rhythm to it.
I have completed one side, and part way through the next, although it will need to be blocked as its turned out a bit skew-whiff!
Also, I made an extra square for Linda's yarnbomb. Its fun trying out different stitches, and seeing how a square works out
I'm looking forward to seeing everybodys pieces put together, it's going to be a bright fun tree, and will certainly stand out!
We did manage to get a little fresh air in between our heavy work schedules this week. So we endulged in a little spot of geocaching, a great way to blow away the cobwebs. The first one we were unable to find as unfortunately the tree had been felled.
But we had better luck with two others in our local village, two well disguised fun finds.
They are part of a set of ten, so we are looking forward to looking for the others in the future.
