Pics and Updates

Hello on this patchy sunny day on 12th May Tuesday

I am great, just wanting to update on what I am crocheting at the moment.

Remember the fiery mixcolored yarn, yellow, orange and red, that I have fell in love, well I wanted to make coasters, so I did and they started curing on the ends, like that affect, so I made two and guess what, they were a perfect fit for my cups, nice and cosy.

I have completed the table runner, coasters and placemat set.

Remember the first coasters I mentioned, at the top of this page, well as I putting the crocheted coasters onto wooden coasters, using some glue, I decided to put those curled coasters on top of the flat ones, as you can see in the photo, not bad, I love it, makes the whole coaster stronger.

I have, eventually, made a crochet flat circle, thanks to Sara :) So simple, using the hat/beanie beginning, crocheting few rounds, which keeps the center flat and then continue in the pattern increasing by two stitches in each round. It was right in front of me, but knowing me, I look for other ways of doing the same thing. Anyways, thank you Sara, for pointing out the obvious and very simple and already written by Teresa.
I am using the fiery mixcolored 100% acrylic yarn, I will keep going until I have a rug type to place on the floor or maybe even hang on the wall !!

I have recently feel in love with hoop earrings. I bought three sized hoops but they do not suit me :( The other day I was watching The View and one the presenter ladies was wearing hoop earrings, but they looked like a spiral affect, I liked that, so I thought, hmmm, I can make those with my tinted and copper wire that I have, so I tried them and they are the best earrings I have so far made and loving them and I have been wearing the silver tinted copper ones ever since. :)

Here are the copper spiral earrings

And here are my favorite ones, tinted copper spiral earrings. I started making small ones, but I wanted them larger, so I made both and put them together to wear.

For some time I have been following and listening to Lion Brand Yarns, Yarn Craft, this is a podcast that comes out couple of times a month, all about the Lion Brand Yarn. Discussing projects for crocheting and knitting and much more. Just listening and updating to the ones I have missed today and I thought I would share this with you. I like listening to them while I surf the net.

Here is their Podcasts - YarnCraft

Well I think that is all for now.

Hope all mothers had a Fantastic and Enjoyable Mother's Day :)

You're welcome! And the coasters look GREAT, I should really think about doing that since I own only one ceramic coaster! I also wanted to tell you about the hats with multiple colors..I just end with a color, snip off the ball of yarn, and begin my new color. I'm not very good at explaining it I guess but I start with the new color and continue crocheting as if I was still using the originial ball of yarn.
