I decided to have a go at crochet last night. I have just finished a doll for my sister's 21st and have a sleeve left on my pink top (I will finish it, but it needs concentration and work is crazy at the moment! I need no-thinking-knitting.) So as my second attempt at crochet I managed 2 granny squares - 1 that looks pass-able; 1 that's all wonky and I have no idea why, and a flower.
I was pretty impressed with myself!
Firstly following the 'Geek' wristband from 'Stitch n Bitch Nation' by Debbie Stoller.
This led to my 'Boy & Girl' design - in several colours, and on different needle sizes.
And the wonderfully simple - stripes!
They need very little yarn and took me about 3 hours from cast on to bind off - and a cup of tea in the middle! [All wristbands are done in Rowan Cotton Glace on 2mm or 3mm needles. I just knit until i can wrap it around the wrist it is meant to fit, bind off then matress stitch together.]
