Crocheting :In The HOT Summer Months

So its HOT out don't cha just love popsicles? I sure do and I love their bright cheeful colors!!! Almost makes you want to make a Granny square Afghan huh???

But you want to crochet but what can you stitch with that won't make you feel even hotter??????

First lets see about some hints to help you stay cooler when you crochet:

  1. Try crocheting on a table, that way your yarn is not touching you and so your legs and body stay cooler, but you can still enjoy stitching
  2. Crochet in the shade or on the patio under a cover, your outdoors and staying cooler, I go down to the grassy area overlooking the beach where there is always a breeze and bring my lawn chair, find some shade under a tree and crochet away.
  3. Crochet at StarBuck's or any cafe where the air conditioner is blasting away while you sip on some ice tea
  4. Crochet smaller projects doilies and flowers or a small bag not only will you finish quicker giving you a good feeling but you can also make a ton of squares for the huge afghan you have had your eye on making.
  5. Sit under an umbrella at the edge of a pool with your feet dangling in the water, cooler and your getting to work on one of your projects
  6. Try crocheting with lighter weight yarn like a vintage thread pattern you may have wanted to try...the lighter weight cotton is easier to work with on hotter days because it is not as cumbersome or hot

Some Little Projects On the Hook.....

I made this bracelet from a pattern I found in Crochet May 2011 and I really liked it ....The back is with the black picking up a post to get it to peek through ...

Then I made or started rather another "Bed Glove" set but this one is in red. Like the white ones I made from  Crochet World Oct 2006
Now this next piece is gorgeous, but it is for sale at $65.... hmmm I wonder if I can make this from the photo that Scoutie Girl posted ....??? I think I can...can you?

I had some "royality charms and made a little necklace with colored chain I got at Wal-Mart...it was pretty simple and then added the charm, now I need to finish it up....

OMG this is so cute, my friend loves Lady Bugs and she just had a hip replacement so I think I am going to make this for her to bring her when I stop by... :) The Itsy Bitsy Spider makes this and other adorable items...check out her blog and on Ravelry
Chloee is bugging me to take her for a walk so I better get to it.... :)
