I have been trawling my crochet Pinterest board as inspiration for a holiday crochet takeaway.
I want something that doesn’t require me to refer constantly to a pattern and something that doesn’t require too much counting for when I pause to accept a glass of wine, or perhaps an olive or two, whilst I sit and gaze across the shimmering turquoise sea, adjusting my hat and my lounger as the sun moves around the bay.
Ahem! Back to the reality of a my day job in a cloudy chilly Leeds.
So I think I’ve decided upon this
Or at least I will use this for inspiration.
There are lots of examples of this type of work on this website here
A cushion cover crocheted in natural dishcloth cotton.
I’ll probably close up the gaps to the background grid slightly. I will incorporate some minky coloured crochet cotton to make some of the featured swirls. I might even design/makeup the swirly pattern in a more free hand way.
It depends on how how chilled I am and which way the sun is shining………..
What a lovely idea to take your crochet projects away with you. I love the idea of being creative and productive whilst enjoying the sunshine! xXx
But strictly only for the plane and the balcony. I have a new stock of books on my kindle and some crafty/home design magazines saved up for the pool and the beach. Crochet cotton and suntan lotion shouldn’t mix.
And I would be accused of ‘not switching off’ however bizarre that sounds!!!
Great choice, that rug is amazing. I just took some cotton to make simple dishcloths, no pattern required. They don’t get so anxious about a crochet hook at the airport. Knitting needles, even wooden ones are at risk of being removed.
Here’s hoping. Will take a spare just incase
I look forward to seeing your work on this. Hope you have a great holiday 🙂
I can’t go away without projects to do – they are my comfort blanket! These have inspired me to do something in crochet now – you wicked woman you! I do love the idea of the rug and am just going to go and have a look…..
Ha, ha! Glad to be that pain in the rear that makes you pick up that crochet hook!
