New yarn :)

IMG_20160820_153309[1].jpg

I’ve bought this new crochet yarn from Granny embroidery shop near my home (she also sells some huge rolls of fabric which is very taller than me), And I also paid for this small crochet hook. Actually, This yarn is so small and when I made chains it’s look loose but I can’t make it tighter anymore.

I thought I may use this for my next doily project (even it’s label have a picture of doily :P)

Does anyone use this kind of yarn? I think I should try something new, even I always crochet with large sized yarn; Yahooo

Choosing crochet yarn

IMG_6481_3

Choosing crochet yarn is important for your perfect works! let’s see how to choose proper yarn for your crochet : Match the yarn to the stitch. The yarn you choose can control the texture and sizes of your works. As a general rule, the wilder yarn will raise the simpler shape and more larger, thicker chain or stitch. The plainer and smaller the yarn will gives more texture and much more details will able to show up, there’re a lot kind of yarns fiber, such as Cotton, silk, soy, bamboo etc. Don’t forget color, Red or orange tones of color won’t be so good for pillow case, but it’s okay for rug, right? And the last things you should follow is be sure you know the characteristics of the yarn and match it with your work ,will the yarn going to be comfortable and beautiful in your finished piece?. Just because two yarns have the same gauge or texture or even fiber doesn’t mean that they can substitute for each other fully in a given pattern. If the yarns have different characteristics, texture, fiber, and color — then the final piece will look or feel different from the original one, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try something new!

Crochet history..isn’t boring as you’re thinking!

Crochet  is a needlework technique performed using a crochet hook. Most typically, this material is yarn or crochet thread but it might also be fabric, wire, twine, or other material…

So that’s a simple information we already know, right? Why won’t we just seek in the old, historical story and origin about this needlework?

History of crochet started in early nineteenth century Europe, They called it as ‘shepherd’s knitting’ It’s invented for using instead of traditional lace and some of interior craft, But when Queen victoria bought the crocheted lace, and started to learn to crochet by herself!

The word crochet can from french word ‘Croche’ which mean hook, And it’s so correct!

The twenties and thirties saw crochet make the move from a decorative embellishment to a method for producing entire garments. This classic crochet hat and stunning evening gown both echo popular designs of the era.

LISA GENTRY is the fastest crocheter, you may wonder that she can crocher over 5,000 stitch in 30 minute

Then, The war

Crochet became part of the wartime effort in both Britain and the US – women on the home front could contribute to the war effort by hooking up items for the troops. In the spirit of austerity, crochet was also a great way of jazzing up existing outfits, in keeping with the ‘make do and mend’ attitude of the time…

After the war ended in 1950s , everything went back in the way it’s suppose to be

And the crochet still very popular ’til today.
