I got my first pair of shining embroidery scissors from Metz back in February. Since then, I’ve been worried about the cute sharp tips being damaged under all kinds of circumstances, not to mention things are falling off my desks almost everyday. I figured it would be nice if the scissors, especially the sharp tips, are better protected. And that is the source of this crochet project.

1 mm crocheting

It’s always delightful to use it to crochet some trivial pieces in the sun while listening to Q92 if there’s no more important/urgent things to do. My favorite crochet hook was always the smallest one I had, a 1-mm shining one which I got in a dollar store in Montreal. The type of threads doesn’t matter so much, but the sunshine is critical. 🙂 Summer suddenly showed up here right after the bad wet winter reluctantly left. Hopefully the sunshine is able to keep me away from blog hibernation. 😛

As usual, I got frustrated by the coming exams. Several tempting new materials had arrived in my mail, but I could not start any projects so far. I only managed to practice the cluny pattern a few more times during my short trip to France last week. Continue Reading Practice makes perfect?…..!…

To Tat or To Crochet?

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.

“The exams for this year” are finished, but I have been sort of trapped in a working-hard me and couldn’t get out of it immediately after the exams. We are going to another city to visit a friend tomorrow. I hope this would help. 😛

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.
