I had so much fun crocheting the red lacy rock cozy that I just couldn't stop!
I've made two more so far and I know they won't be the last!
I used more stash yarn for this one. It's an old ball of ecru cotton that I inherited decades ago.
It was probably old when I got it. They sure don't make cotton thread like they used to!
This was so soft and silky to the touch and so different to work with.
I used a size 6 hook again and this one is completely improvised.
The shape of this rock brought a nautilus shell to mind.
So, I started out with a nautilus shape for the center and went from there.
Here's the back...
This round rock seemed perfect for a flower.
The gray color of the rock seemed perfect for pink.
I happened to have some coral/pink thread in my stash.
This one is improvised too. I really like how it turned out. Here's the back...
I'm having so much fun crocheting with cotton thread that I decided
to try something I've wanted to do for years...crochet lace edging.
I flipped through a bunch of my patterns and decided on one this one...
I tried a smaller hook but realized that a six is probably the smallest I want to go.
The next size smaller made the stitches too small to see. Crocheting with size six still bugs my
eyes out a little but keeps the stitches small enough to make the lace somewhat delicate.
I'm using Aunt Lydia's size 10 cotton crochet thread from my stash.
I started it morning. I just have a bit more to finish on the edging.
Then, it'll be time for blocking. I can't wait to see how it will look when it's finished.
