Crochet Bobbles

I’m finishes with block 2 of the 50 stitches CAL – the Bobble/Puff Stitch.

Bobble/Puff Stitch – 2nd block for the 50 stitches CAL.

Observations of this stitch:

*I found making the bobbles in crochet to be much easier than in knit as I didn’t have to keep turning the piece front to back and visa versa.

*I did not care for carrying the yarn from bobble to bobble as I could see the carried thread through the other stitches.

*One of the other member of the 50 stitches FB group recommended cutting the yarn for every bobble.  This appealed to me as there were no visible threads and I thought it looked much better from the front.

Ends galore!

*However … that left a boat load of ends to weave in.  Definitely NOT fun.

I know this doesn’t look like very much, but it took about 2 hours to weave in all the ends.

Ahhh … much better.  All in all this was a fun experiment and I love learning new to me stitches especially in crochet where I am not as fluent as in knitting.  I LOVE the look of the different color bobbles against the solid background.  I’m not sure I’ll do this again.  Maybe if I had committed to weaving the ends in as I went, it would have been better!

EDITTED TO ADD:  I’m sharing this on Moogly Hookin Up On Hump Day

Plastic Crochet Tote

I’m at it again!!  I had more plastic bags from bread, TP, and other things that I have been saving.  img_5186

Here it is!  This one is different from the others that I have done as this one has a rectangular base.  I like this much more as it is easier to pack.img_5188

It looks on the smaller side, but it actually holds quite a bit.img_5187

I liked it so much I started a new one!!
