Crochet Update

Over the last few weeks I have been making a lot of the textiles for the house.   I spent a day a few weeks ago learning some new patterns and experimenting.

  

After trying about 4-5 new designs I decided I would start to make a curtain for the container windows.  I went with a very neutral cream colour as I want the main features to be both the view from the windows and the interior.

  

I have also started making some cushion covers for the living room.  I have decided to go with green and cream as a colour theme to reflect the surrounding forest area.  I have run with the pleated pattern idea as it is a fairly simple yet effective design.

After crocheting half of one of the covers my crochet needle snapped.  I have been using this since November so it wasn’t a bad life span for a piece of 3D printed plastic.  I am currently in the process of printing off another one which will take an hour to print.  This is much quicker and cheaper than getting the bus to town or ordering one online.

 After about 20mins use the hook I printed in low quality broke.  I was able to see viably the strands of plastic poking out of the break like frayed string.  I then re-printed the hook in high quality which took 2 hours 20mins to print.
