Hikrochet (Hi-cro-shay): to crochet while walking or hiking
OK, I made that up, but I had a good walk today and even went further than usual because I wanted to see how much progress I could make while on the hoof!
…is how much I did while walking. I had the yellow crocheted yarn-holder over my left wrist, fed the yarn from the centre of the cake out the top of the bag, and just started crocheting. A beanie seemed like a good idea, and I used double crochet in a spiral. The yarn is a partial ball of James C Brett Marble Chunky, a lovely soft acrylic, and the hook is a 6mm.
After I got home, I continued on, finishing the hat with a round of hdc and some embroidery that is supposed to look like cherry blossom.
More stash busted, yay!
Another project which I worked on for the last three days is this market bag. I showed you a progress photo last time, but it is now done, steamed and ready to go.
I still need to work on some squares for the Scrapsrific MCAL, but also have two other projects waiting in the wings: a pair of knitted socks, and some dishcloth/scrubby doodads that I will be making with these…
It’s funny how things wax and wane – this time last week I had one WIP and now I have tons of stuff in the pipeline. Crochet on!
