This is a quickie blog today as I'm flying all over the place today. Following on from my Day in the Country on Saturday, I thought I'd leave a few words about filet crochet which we briefly dabbled in. Because it is made with a very fine hook, around the 1mm mark or even less, it is a little neglected. Finding examples of it in contemporary crochet are hard to find (I'll hang in there though!!!). The wonderful pictures of household items are a start. The crazy TV set isfrom Inger Carina'sFlikr photostream. If this gets your creative streak zinging then how about downloading a program and make up your own patterns and letting chaincreative know. crochetdesigns.com have a great little program for $35.95 which gives you everything you need to become a filet freak.
A little late entry here to the wonders of filet, from the Flikr 'Lace' pool of BisyBackson and 'Teapot' - a window display!!! Doesn't it make you want to grab that 1mm hook and get fileting!
Never happier than up to my elbows in lush fabrics, yarns and thread. The perfection of a complete piece of work or tiniest of buttonholes. Collecting crochet and knit patterns of the 1940's and '50's is my passion.
