Updated 3/10/2011: So I didn’t win the crochet challenge. I would be lying if I said I’m not sad but all the same, it had been good fun. Congratulations to Lindsay who won!
Renske from Fun and Fang is carrying out a crochet challenge on her blog. To participate, you crochet a project from the collection of her free patterns, post a photo of the project on your blog/website/Flickr and post the link on Renske’s blog. Then, Renske will pick the best project and the prize? Two free patterns from Renske’s Etsy shop.
It sounds like something exciting to do so I thought I’d put in an entry. The pattern that caught my eye was the Spider in Jar pattern. The concept was so Halloween-esque. It reminded me of fake
(albeit scary-looking) spiders in those haunted houses in school carnivals.
Red seemed like a good spider colour to me especially since Spiderman has a red (and black) costume.
The spider was fun to crochet although the legs were kind of tricky to attach. I had to make sure the spacing between the legs was even so that I could fit all eight legs on the spider.
I took a photo of the spider upside down. *cheeky grin* It’s after the jump.
I hope I did justice to Renske’s Spider in Jar pattern even though my version of it doesn’t exactly fulfil the meaning of the term “Spider in Jar”. Let’s just say mine escaped from the jar.
Till the next post. xoxo
