Freeform crochet and another couple of cases

I have started yet another project! I just can’t help myself, I get an idea and just have to go with it.  This time it is a freeform crochet vest – what you don’t believe me? Really it will be. 🙂

I am using some dark charcoal grey alpaca yarn, some thick and thin, mid grey merino and some hand dyed merino sock yarn.

With his usual razor sharp perception, my husband said, “but it has holes in it, it will be draughty”. I explained that it was intended to be worn over a t shirt, to which I got the reply, “hmph!”

I’m enjoying myself with it anyway.

I also made another couple of Kindle covers. One is knitted from alpaca yarn and felted, with a cotton lining and cotton lace trim. The other is knitted and lined with felt. Off to Etsy with them.

 

Your Kindle needs to be cozy too!

A couple of Kindle cozies, to help stop scratches on your e-reader. I used some polymer clay buttons that I had made last year as closures.

They are both crocheted. I used multiple strands of a wool/nylon mix yarn for the dark one and a really nice thick and thin type, multi-coloured yarn for the other one.

They both have a cord to loop over the button at the front. It is held in place at the back with sewn on buttons.

These have been added to my Etsy shop. 🙂
