I am often asked what can be done with a 25m skein of lace-weight/crewel wool or with left-over skeins from the Renaissance Stripes or Bohemian Rhapsody kits. Annette of Annette Petavy design has come up with a fun answer. A crocheted Advent calendar that advances day by day throughout Advent in easy to follow steps. For nervous crocheters like me it is easy to follow as there are lots of images and links to stitch explanations in English and French.
So take ten minutes out of your busy day and give yourself a hand-crafted Advent Calendar.
My effort so far after day 2, with some left-over lace-weight held double and a 2.5 crochet hook.
This is dyed with cochineal, notoriously difficult to make that scarlet colour and to photograph!
I have no idea how much wool this will take but will keep you posted, pop back to this blog for updates.
