Flower Power

June 28, 2012

I recently had the opportunity to honour three wonderful women. So I made these…

A red felt rose…

… a white flower with stamen….

… and this is one is my own design. A Vag Badge!

Finally! I’ve finished my fingerless glove/gauntlet thingys. I was inspired by this pattern but decided to crochet instead of knit them. (Turns out I’m way better at crochet than knitting).

So I found this pattern through http://www.Ravelry.com.

I’m pretty sure I didn’t follow it exactly and I decided to exaggerate the seams by crocheting with black along the edge before joining them.

I dropped stitches near the wrist and picked up a couple more towards the forearm. Again, I’m not sure I was doing it ‘right’ and I kinda sorta just make it up.

Result? Pure awesomeness….

Just a little crochet rose. Not exactly like the original but who cares…

 

I recently rang my mate and asked her to (re) teach me to crochet. Two cups of tea later I was away. The process of relearning was great. I was taught to crochet at ‘hanski’, home economics classes in Switzerland as a 14 year old. You know the ones. Cooking, sewing etc for the girls. (Woodwork for the boys). We had fun and class was punctuated by my exclamations of ‘Word!’ and ‘get in there bitch!’

Simultaneously I was introduced to ravelry.com, a highly addictive website dedicated to knitting and crocheting.

So I’m showing off….

 

 

ooooh yeeeeeaaah
