You all know I love to crochet! And on top of that, I enjoy a [not too hard] challenge.
A while ago I came upon this enormous gigantic spool of cotton. Actually, it's polyester so not as awesome as I originally thought, but still awesome, right? Yes! It brought with it several new challenges.
|That is a 2.5mm crochet hook...|
One being that it's enormous and to move it involves some effort (not really).
Two being that it's enormous and how on earth am I going to get through that?!
Three being that it's so fine (and enormous) - I'd say a 1 or 2ply - about 1mm thick. So that means that if I want to crochet with it, I'd have to use a tiny hook or worse, getting into my late Great Grandmothers' collection of steel hooks. Yes, that sent a shudder through my fingers. "Oh please no!" they cried.
So, one day a few months ago, I was perusing through a really neat creative blog called PaisleyJade. And in particular, I came across this post about crochet covered stones. Which then led me to this other blog called Purlbee, with a cute tutorial and other ideas.
And so I was inspired...
I just knew I had collected the amazing smooth river-stones for a purpose!
I likey! And, here's another shout-out. I absolutely love this blog too - Attic24. She is an inspirational crochet junkie.
