Found Crocheted Twine

I was looking for my set of netting needles, digging through some old boxes that have been stored for years, and found this old bit of crochet I did 15 to 18 years ago. I thought it would be interesting to try crocheting with carpenter’s twine, the stuff we used to mark off corners on construction sites. I’d completely forgotten about it. I keep thinking I should learn to crochet for real, so that I’ll have maximum flexibility of technique when I want to make a hat or whatever. Anyway, this was a bit of fun from a previous run at learning a “yarn craft.” I did find my netting needles. I have an idea for a hat that will have a netting top and a knitted headband…

Pix of The Hat of Many Curses

I finally got some pictures of THoMC. Obviously, a work in progress. As of this photo this afternoon, I was about 3 and a half inches beyond the base of the i-cord. I’m down to 4 inches now and working on the next increase. This one is going to be 138 stitches when it is done, and it was at 48 in these photos. I’m at 64 now, and have switched to 5 needles.  I’m also a little tippsy, so no telling if those numbers were deadon.
