Spool Knitting

Project Gutenberg Spool Knitting

I’m browsing from time to time Project Gutenberg and found last time a book about spool knitting from 1909. They have mittens, bed shoes, a baby ball and much more, all made from I-cords.
It feels to me like a book from the 70th’s ;-))

Perhaps I do a little rummage to play with my knitting spool once more ;-)

Bottlecap Pincushions

Bottlecap Pincushions

I really love those tiny pincushions, just like the Recycled Pincushion Ring.
Now I found a tutorial on how to make bottlecap pincushions – great!
A little Google research (websites and images) showed me that many people make such cute bottlecap pincushions.
Perhaps I will make one, too – one day? ;-)

Clothes From Crocheted Medaillons

Clothes From Crocheted Medaillons

Once I found the website of Jessica Tromp.
Hours later I regained consciousness ;-))

It is difficult to say, what I love best, but in the end I decided, that it must be the crochet patterns for/from square medaillons. But make sure to check all the other crochet patterns also (look for ‘crochet PATTERNS’ in the left navigation bar of her website).

Best of all, she designed a gazillion of clothes and each and every one for different women sizes!
In addition she offers basic woman measurement charts for clothing patterns.

I simply don’t find the right words for this site ;-))

YoYo Pin

YoYo Pin

I like yoyo’s, but only recently I tried to make one. And I find it cute.
It is made from shiny polyester fabric and embellished with a little crocheted flower and some embroidered beads (I hate to have polyester on my skin, but I like it for pins and the like, because it is so shiny).
