Modern crochet Boodles lamp shade cover




I'm on a 'modern crochet'  roll.... I am simply loving this crochet book by Molla Mills you can read more about it in my recent post here. I believe there is a second edition in the works, worth looking out for?

Having already crocheted a couple of baskets, I moved on to a lampshade. I  posted about it first on my instagram feed...  with a little glimpse of the shade I was working on.





An tatty old  lampshade (total cost 50p from a boot fair) was stripped of its stained cover, given a wipe down and revamped with crochet.





I used a size 9 mm hook and 3/4 of a multi coloured Boodles roll of yarn. I made up my own stitch, I crocheted 2 double crochet together. (2dctog) this made for a wider stitch with added depth.







I took some obligatory work in progress photos, I love looking back on them and seeing my progress over the last couple of days.

Finally a  finished lampshade, by daylight and in the evening...




   


Already flicking through the pages for my next project....!

Anyone else caught the modern crochet bug?

Lilypond crochet along: progress report




Considering this is a progress report, I have to admit there is not much progress to report! I am taking this one slowly. I am delighting in the stitches, loving all the colours, but above all I am 'savouring it' like a bowl of my favourite ice-cream, definitely not a project to rush.

So far I have crocheted at least one of every pattern release, here are the latest pics...
