last night when waiting at the trainstation i started teaching this girl how to crochet! she was knitting and quite engrossed in it... then this man commented about how winter always brings out the knitters... so i told him i was crocheting and the girl goes 'oh i don't know how to do that' so i showed her... its a pity her train came early because i would have let her have the hook and wool to practise with...

this morning i went and found an awesome wool shop and have ordered some books, walked out with a book and some cotton... so its nice to know that all my supplies are only a train ride away!

threading the loop

what i have been doing is having quite alot of fun doing my skirt, i've been crocheting to System of a Down's new album ahahahahahah and cruising the internet for some funky patterns, i never realised how many people are 'doing' the art of crochet... i've been wanting to get some really cool patterns from Rowan or Vogue knitting but the magazines are expensive for me Vogue is like $15 a pop and i still haven't figured out how much Rowan is......

Open mesh

I have started crocheting a red open mesh skirt... I found the pattern in my local sewing shop and snapped it up as modern, funky patterns are hard to find where I am. It took me three times to actually start the skirt because you have to crochet in rounds and I kept twisting the foundation chain, don't ask me how! I'm hoping to have it finished at the end of two weeks.
