Gmail was crashed worldwide for some unknown reason this morning.  The bright side of this break-down is I got some time to go through  the very few pictures I took during the weekend when I am out-of-town. I am not going to reveal the city here. It should be rather clear from my pictures for people who have been there. Have you figured it out? 😉

I was sort of surprised to find out the fancy Cluny leaves can also be achieved by tatting, so I pick up my doll needle to make a try. There is a very good tutorial on tatting the Cluny leaves with needles. Obviously, this is a technique I cannot master so easily. I repeated the angle pattern 3 times to get the two wings (more or less) symmetric. I am still hesitated to claim that I know how to do the leaf: more practice is definitely necessary before trying more serious patterns.

The pattern was drew by hands. I found two trivial/ignorable mistakes (at the beginning of the 4th and 5th round) in the pattern this morning. Hopefully the following description can help to sort it out. Please let me know if you find any mistakes, so I can improve the pattern.

Pattern for Yogurt Bottle Cozy

The bottom and the neck of the bottle are both slightly smaller than the body. The cozy are started from the bottom and finished at the neck.

Two plies of threads are used at the same time for the “textural” look. For round 1, 2, 4, 6, it’s the white thread with the light blue thread and for the others, it’s the light blue thread with shaded blue thread. A crochet hook of 3.25mm is used.

The internet connection remains unstable. 😦 It takes me two hours to finally login. I am not sure whether I can successfully submit this at the end.

Our “optional” courses start this week, which means the free Wednesdays are over. Due to the language problem, I don’t have any choices at all and have to stick to the courses given in English. On the bright side,  one of the lecturers is extremely good. His lecture is more entertained than a talk show. We can easily spent 2 hours and don’t get distracted.
