Crocheted Jewelry!

I've been crocheting!  There is something about the cool weather that makes me want to get out the yarn and create.

I got this pattern from Creative Yarn, a unique crochet website run by a talented young Italian woman.  She has a fascinating collection of crocheted jewelry in addition to the more expected hats and sweaters.

Now that my husband and I have traded our trailer in for a pop-up camper, I have a feeling I'll be crocheting myself some leg warmers--style be damned!

I need to replentish my yarn supply with black yarn, as well as maybe some yarn with silver and gold in it.  I also need to buy some nice large buttons.  I've got a supply of various rather tiny buttons, but I'm thinking I need ones a bit larger.  (This necklace actually buttons in the back.)

Anyway, I really enjoyed making this and am looking forward to whatever insanely easy crochet patterns I can find in the future.

Hey, for a quick pair of leg warmers you might want to invest in the Knifty Knitter. It's what I used to make neck scarves. Just don't sew the top and bottom up and you'll have leg warmers. I could even show you how to make a cuff.

I actually thought about getting one of them. I hear you can make them too. Also, people use hand knitting in similar ways, I think.

My patterns have to be VERY easy and illustrated in as many ways as possible for me to do them. But I love crocheting.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
