This afternoon I found 3 balls of Schachenmayr original Tacoma yarn (67% Acrylic, 27% Wool and 6% Polyamid) at Veritas, a type of craft shop here. I wished there had been more! Anyway, I quickly snapped it up. The colours in it are very varied! I also got myself a 9mm hook because this is seriously chunky yarn! (50g = 37m). On the bus journey home I decided to try it out and thought I could make a cowl. I didn't have a tape measure with me this time, I chained 60 stitches and then continued with groups of 3 in a granny treble stitch in the following rows. By the time I got off the bus (about 35 mins later), I had finished the first ball of yarn!
|What can you do with 3 balls of yarn? The first one is already crocheted up!|
|So many colours!|
After supper I went back to my crochet, continuing until I had nearly used up all the yarn. I tried to crochet my cowl together, however the remaining string was too short! So I quickly sewed it together and it worked out fine!
|Quick! Get the camera, it's finished!|
Today I could feel that it is almost turning to autumn. Everywhere in the shops I could see new knitwear, warm jumpers and cozy cardigans! And it rained several times today, it has been like that for about a week now. But I'm hoping we will have a little bit longer with more sunshine, that would be lovely!
