On Friday I crocheted a Rosy Cosy tea cozy.
To be honest I found it quite challenging. The pattern is easy enough to follow, but made up of many stitches and stitch sequences that I had never attempted before; like decreasing over 6 stitches and single crocheting backwards (crabbing) and the fptb (front post treble).
I found myself pulling it apart over and over and at times asking my very talkative and inquisitive children to only talk if they absolutely had something urgent to say.
I am really happy with the end result, but it has made me question the level of crochet I thought I was capable of.
After a bit of a tidy up the other day I found my copy of Vintage Crochet by Susan Cropper.
After seeing so many milk jug covers in blog land like those stunning ones Melanie M* has been crocheting, I knew it was only a matter of time before I made a few myself. And let me tell you they are as lovely to work as they are to look at.
My next project is to make some bunting to decorate our farm shed shop. I had thought to crochet the little flags, but realistically, I think fabric might wear better.
The bunting above has been hanging outside for over a year and the grape vine has started to use it as a trellis.
I hope you are having a lovely Sunday where ever you are.
