First of all, spring is here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, I saw this pattern on a Russian site and thought that I would try it. Yikes, I thought. How do I join them? how do I do this and that? Take a look:
So I was thinking, okay, I’ll crochet these circles first, with ecru, big ball, from Michael’s, probably number 10 thread, using number 2 hook (1 1/2 mm. hook). And I only buy from Michael’s when I can use a coupon for 40% off and more. It sure helps keep my costs down. Otherwise I would have to spend 1 1/2 hrs. by bus and skytrain to downtown Vancouver just to get cheaper crochet thread. I love the store: Dressew, on Hastings St. Vancouver, BC. They also sell tons and tons of fabric and buttons; it’s a Homer Simpson drool store.
Okay, I digress. These Russian patterns are great but how the heck do you join everything together? Plus the number 10 thread doesn’t make the circles as big as this picture. Hmmm. So I just measured myself and figured out how many circles I would need to cover the front of my body at the largest point. Hm, it was a measurement competition between my breasts and my tummy. Yuk. And I used to have the measurements of: 35/ 24/ 36. But of course I have aged to some degree: almost 60 yrs old now. (sigh)Yeah, 40s/40s/40s measurements.
I meditated on how to join these circles together; a brainwave hit me! I’ll show you next time.
