Very cool - I love that color combination.

I'm hooked on hyperbolic crochet (no pun intended), but I've been having a hard time finding applications for it. The best I've come up with is using it for cat toys, but I'd love to work it into more projects. Any ideas?

Wow. I just had a flashback to my Ninja Turtle phase, including the entire theme song from the (original) show and snippets from each of the three movies.

These are fabulous! Great work!

CUTE! It looks so polished, like something you'd find in a store. Great Job!

(If you want to make smaller ones, try crochet thread and a really small-gauge steel hook, like size 7 or so.)

I've also seen crochet jewelry made out of wire, but I think it's tricky to do.


i love the idea. i think these would look awesome crocheted in wire. It gives it a very lacy appearance, and if you add beads as you go, it'll look like it's encrusted with little gems. my only piece of advice is that the thinner the wire, the easier it is to crochet, but the less durable it is, so try to find a balance you're comfortable with. i, personally, can't have nice things, so i tend to go a little thicker :-)

otherwise i've been playing with this very thin Malabrigo yarn that comes in some beautiful colors.

i am so excited to try this!

that's lovely! one question for you: how do burda patterns run? large? small? i'm getting ready to order a pattern, it the chart on the site says size 20 = size 46... what's your experience?

That is lovely...and you've got me thinking i need to go out and get me a french press  Wink

I love the colors, too. I never would have thought to use something like noro for that.

If you're interested in getting rid of them, my mom finally won a several-year bout with the squirrels by using birdseed laced with hot pepper. The birds don't mind it, but the squirrels do.

...of course there is always something to be said for entertaining the cat  Smiley
