I’m sure you’ve all missed me for the whole week I didn’t post – I was enjoying some much needed RNR so I went off grid for a bit.
But it wouldn’t be a Lulu holiday if I didn’t return with some amazing new project to show off to y’all!
As previously mentioned, April is anniversary time for me and my brilliant gift from my other half was some anodized aluminium scales. This probably sounds quite dull to those who have no idea what they are, but the things you can do with them look freakin’ incredible! They’re basically metal scales – like what you think of when you think dragon scales, for example. Usually they’re used with metal jump rings to create armour, but me being me, found out you can also crochet with them!
These took me roughly a week to do – people who’ve done this previously crochet the whole thing, but I only crocheted the scale section and did a black lace back instead. I’m thinking about experimenting with this, doing fabric over crochet or maybe leather instead. Anyway, it looks fantastic and makes a rattling noise when I move my arms, which is sure to drive my work colleagues mad. Do I care? Not when I look this good!
