The last weeks’ productivity was extremely low. I only finished making the crochet flowers for my next necklace. I will use grey and light blue and the number of flowers should be enough for quite a long necklace. Maybe next week I will be able to show you the finished piece.
Also I got this book from the library:
It looks a bit old fashioned (it is from 1998, but the design looks more like 70s to me) and I am not really interested in creating crochet flowers for home decor. But there are quite a few nice ideas in there for “flat” flowers that I could use in necklaces or even in 100% crochet bracelets. That would be quite cool, I think.
The book also mentions a technique called “Hairpin-Lace” (German: Gabelhäkeln) which I had never heard of before. Has anyone of you used that technique? It looks a bit complicated or rather fiddly. I’d love to get some opinions before I start yet another new project.
