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…

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
