crochet for the home

We’ve all seen those books (Simple Crochet, etc) that have cool and totally simple crochet  items for  around the house.

so… something arrived at the shop,  pineapple “yarn” from Habu Textiles, I couldn’t wait to use it! It’s called “fique”. I finished this quick project with plenty leftover for another project.

    Looks like cool stuff – I like that it is described as smooth – I tried knitting with hemp twine once, got a terrible rash and virtually instant carpal tunnel….

    I’m not a fan of stripes (on my body), but I really like that sweater. I like how the top is just all black. It’s as though the bottom stripes just fade into the top (visually-speaking).

    Nice make-up container. I need to make some of those for my odds and ends lying around.

    That Pirate Pullover is adorable! It probably wouldn’t look so good on me, but I love it.

    And I see Bare Essentuals there, too. I love Bare Essentuals.

    I’m curious what your impressions are of this yarn. Pineapple yarn just sounds like it would be hard on the hands (I think of thinking of the skin) but I’ve heard that it’s smooth. Good points? Bad points?

    Hey Malia
    It is as stiff as twine/heavy hemp, but MUCH smoother to work with… almost slippery, like raffia… my hands didn’t hurt after working with it… it’s pretty cool stuff! The only bad points i can see is that it is not really a garment “yarn”
