I bought this Japanese crochet book, Marche Special Crochet Goods, in a whim and when I received it, found it a bit boring. It did not have that many ideas and the crochet patterns were a bit difficult to grasp. At least the pictures were pretty and inspirational, as always, and I decided to try making something from it. I settled to the easiest project: making a necklace from crocheted beads. I used leftover yarns from Hello Kitty bag and dishcloths so I did not have a lot of colours to choose from. I did okay anyway, didn't I? :)
Next time I will use a bit more stuffing in the beads. Now the are a bit too soft and don't hold their shape that well. Making crocheted beads was so easy that I might just have to make several necklaces!
