More Wreath Ornaments
It feels weird not having blogged in a while. We took one last summer trip last week before school starts. Even though we were busy, I still found some crafting time.
I made more plastic bottle ring wreath ornaments on Thursday morning. They are slightly different than the others that I had made. The other ones used my made-up double crochet, the one that I learned by looking at finished crochet items as a child. The other ones also had one double crochet in each stitch for the second round. These ones used the real double crochet and I did a few increase stitches in the second round (where needed). They turned out better and bigger. I also used up the last of this yarn.
Last night I took out my new green sparkly yarn and made 3 more wreaths. The one on the left has the 15 chain stitches at the beginning and end for the loop (like I used in the past wreaths). Because I used a different yarn, the size ended up being different. The loop was to small for my liking. So I chained 20 stitches in the beginning and in the end for the next two. I still need to add a red bow to these wreaths.
I made another project while on my trip, but I can't show it since it is a Christmas present. The person who it is for checks my blog. I'll be posting this and other presents after Christmas.
