plarn basket

Hey there! My blog has moved to knittwittowo.com 🙂 go there and subscribe so you get my latest posts – thank you and keep crafting!

So I have now restarted working with plarn. I want to make a plarn basket or waste paper bin so I have started by crocheting a ‘square’ of 15 stitches and 14 rows in double crochet uk / single crochet us.

Then on my 15th row I picked up 15 stitches on the other three sides. And now I am working in the round – but because the base is square it has a square shape to it.

It’s an experiment so far and I will keep you updated!

So this is what I am working with this evening – 26 sainbury’s bags.
I have to cut them all up and add them to the ball of plarn that I already have – which you can see on the right. Excuse the terrible picture quality – its the camera on my mobile!
Wish me luck! It’s going to take me a while!

Finally getting back to plarn

So I’ve not been able to devote myself to plarn in a long time, and now the summer is here I can start to plan what I do with my stash of plarn.

The photo is of my stash of small plarn balls – I have larger ones. I will use some of these for practice.

I hope to knit and crochet with my plarn and create bags, mats, baskets, containers, toys and sculptures.

Once I have finished turning my orange and white bags in to massive plarn balls I will turn my attention to what I want to knit and crochet! Looking forward to it! I can’t wait to get creating and experimenting with different needles and hooks to get different affects with plarn!

Crochet blanket – The big bang theory

I rarely watch The big bang theory and when I did I was pleasantly surprised to spot a crochet blanket 🙂

The episode is called The agreement dissection

I got some of my own photos of the crochet blanket but it is difficult to make out the pattern unlike the photo on imdb above.

Another blog that I follow – Crochetime – has mentioned this blanket too – which I only realised when I was searching for a photo of the blanket online. I really like Crochetime blog – it continues to inspire me to get better at crochet.
