And… Another Crocodile Stitch Swatch

I think I found a good yarn for this stitch. I had it in a bag of UFOs, so I frogged the old project. It was gonna be a dice bag, but I didn’t see myself finishing it.

The yarn is Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Glamour (fine/2) in Lapis. It’s a dark teal green with blue metallic thread wound through it. Unfortunately it doesn’t photograph well, even though I had my OttLite on and I used the flash on my camera, it looks so much better in person. The dark color makes it difficult to see the scale definition in the photo. I really like the texture and feel of this yarn in the stitch pattern too. It has an almost squishy, sponge-like feel to it, and it is definitely not stiff, although it has a tendency to want to curl in at the top corner points. This is done in a variation of the Crocodile Stitch where the scales are longer. All said, I think this will make very nice head-wear 🙂

ETA: I was able to get a better photo at Tim Horton’s this afternoon. I think with all of the windows and the natural lighting there, without the camera flash, really made a difference. My house is rather dark, even in the middle of the day, so I need my OttLite and a flash for most photos I take here.

💚Love those green eyes!💚 Pretty Miss Jade #cat #blackcat #greeneyedblackcat My baby girl, Drusilla MamaKitty. She turned 11yrs old this this year in July. She is the ruler of this house and the Mama of everyone. She can actually say words too, her favorites are “Mom”, “No”, and “Now”. Somewhere I have a video of her talking. She doesn’t talk as often now as she did when she was younger. I wish I had a better pic of her eyes though. She has the prettiest aqua colored eyes. #cat #myfurbaby Faerie Blossom Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers Diamond Tweed Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers This tank and shawl set are actually from 2 separate patterns that I found on Ravelry. The Wing Span Shawl made in Tunisian Crochet by Oana Oros and the Custom Tank Top Version # 1 by Jane Sharp. I really love them together and they’re both made with Bernat Softee Baby in the Girly Girl colorway. The shawl clip is a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. #crochet #crochettank #crochetshawl #crochetwrap #notmypatterns Another idea for my bag. It has a single strap that goes across the body. I’ve been using this one and have found a few things I’d like to change in the newer versions. #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetbag #crochetsinglestrapbackpackbag
