Week 18. Oh dear crochet can be put to good use just about anywhere. I bought a black plastic oversize chain necklace and just went to town transforming it into a collar using pink wool, copper lurex and red cotton yarn. Great for Christmas parties!!!!

 Week 14. This week I crocheted a bikini top for my youngest daughter using 4 ply Clever Country Egyptian cotton from Turkey with a 3mm crochet hook (shown bottom). I remember crocheting my own bikini at 14. That’s me on the top in 1969 in Tasmania.

Week 13, This week I designed and crocheted a tee shirt for my youngest daughter for summer using Panda cotton blend 8 ply and a 4.00mm and 3.5mm crochet hook. The pattern was mainly double trebles and the sleeves, neckline and waistband were half trebles. It was much appreciated.
