Storing Crochet Hooks, Cozy Style!

Amy Crocket had a idea!  She thought it would be fun to take one of SRM's clear TUBES that is empty....

and create a cozy covering for it.  So she crocheted a cover and topped it off with a crocheted flower....

and then she stored her crochet hooks inside! 

What a great storage idea!  What would you put into your TUBES?  They come in 5 sizes and are great for storing so many different things!

Crocheting Braclets

Looking for a fun project to make with your kids or grandkids?  Here's a perfect way to teach them how to crochet.

Begin with their favorite color.  Ann Molvik created this for her daughter who chose purple as her preferred color.  What a surprise...a girl who loves the color purple! :)  This twine is called Lilac and each spool has 240 yards so you will have plenty of twine to crochet multiple bracelets.

Ann then crocheted the little flowers and put them all together to create this fun and fabulous bracelet.  What little girl would not love to receive this?

Ann's daughter wears her bracelet all the time.  And all her friends want one too!  It would be a great gift for any little girl.  

Thanks for joining us today.  Come back soon to get more ideas of using twine in your knitting and crocheting projects.

Crocheting with Twine

Today I'm sharing with you a simple polka dot bib created by Ann Molvik that is a perfect, practical gift for a new baby as featured on the Knit & Crochet Today show.  Click on image to enlarge.

This adorable bib is easy, fun and fast to crochet.  The twine used is very durable and will hold up to repeated washings.  The bib requires 150 yeards of the main color (Shore Baby Blue) and about 50 yards of the contrasting color, (Marigold Yellow), depending on the size of the polka dot.  This bib is a great size, really keeping baby covered! 

HERE is the pattern that was used to create this bib.

Join us later in the week for more fun with Twine & Tubes!
