Walking the talk and End of the Line:
1) I was sidetracked again this week from my long term crochet project by the idea of making a crochet ring bezel. I made a band using 100% nylon thread by Omega (don’t know the color number, but it’s an orange-brown). I had an elongated flat hexagon shaped brecciated jasper stone for which I crocheted a bezel with a hexagon shaped backside and a border to create a bed for the bead to set in. The bezel and was attached to the band first with a bit of glue and then by tacking it down with needle and thread. No patter for this one because it would be too dependent on the shape of the stone.
2) I also share a brecciated jasper necklace and earrings set that I made a few years back by stringing dagger beads, two holed flat back beads and round beads (all brecciated jasper) along with seed beads. It is an all-time favorite and now I have a ring to go with it!
End of the line:
1) I completed a pair of fingerless mitts using a free pattern “Wintertree Cabled Fingerless Mittens” by RosaP on Ravelry. (You can also find it at: https://hooks-and-chains.tumblr.com/post/58164738522/winter-tree-cabled-fingerless-mittens )
I stranded StyleCraft Special DK in the dark brown colorway with Valley Yarns Huntington in the Chocolate colorway. I used about 50 g of Stylecraft and 25 g of the Valley Yarn.
This is another entry for the Mischief Managed Mal and I am calling them my Whomping Willow Mittens. I would still like a bird and a car charm to add to them.
1. I am almost done with the dress to wear to my son’s wedding in October, just need to weave in my ends. The dress is based on a pattern by Jenny King that was published at Annie’s Crochet (https://www.anniescatalog.com) and is called the Everlasting Wedding Dress. I used King Cole’s Finesse (a cotton/silk blend) with a 4.5 mm hook. I used 11 – 50 g skeins. Now, I am desperately trying to find an appropriate underdress.
2) I continue to work on my socks for the Mischief Managed Mal hosted by https://crochetcakes.com/ I have chosen Clarisabeth’s “Vintage Wave” socks pattern (find it on her site https://crochetcakes.com/). I am using a 3.5 mm hook and the Bellatrix colorway by https://littlebeanlovesyarn.com/ as my main color.
3) As a third entry for the Mischief Managed Mal, I am crocheting a witchy doily based on a paid-for pattern found on Ravelry at https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/masquerade-party-crinoline-girl-doily---item-0475 .
I am using Red Heart Mercerized Cotton in black and Petra DMC cotton in a green colorway (though not the right color for McGonagall) with a 2.5 mm hook. This will be my Minerva McGonagall Doily.
I am planning on starting another doily pattern called Boo! in Omega Cotton yarn in a grey colorway using a 2.25 mm hook. The pattern is free and can be found on Ravelry at https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/boo-12 .
I will call this “Dementors on the Loose”.
