Crocheted Interlocking Rings

rodezzy | Posted in Knitting and Crochet on

In my post about the crocheted top I’m making, I have to clarify that the neckline is made with “interlocking rings” not interlocking circles.  That is the proper name for the process.  I found these rings in “Crochet School:  A Complete Course” book that I bought and subsequently gave to a family member as a gift.  I made a top with this neckline summer before last and luckily I had another crochet design pamphet with the interlocking rings at the bottom of a summer top on it. 

But, today I ordered the book again, because there where things in there that are not in any other book I have at home.  So I bought it again.  This time, I will keep it.  It is a great book.

    You'll have to keep us posted as to how the outfit is coming along - it should be quite spectacular - especially with the crocheted rings.  Where will you be putting them - on the neckline or bottom?  What yarn are you using?  Is this going to be a dress or 2-piece?  How long do you plan to make the skirt?  I'll have to look for that crochet book at the library here (when I finally join) to see if they have it.  Good luck!

      Hy Gloria, I gave all of that info in a previous post this morning "Black and White...."

      Love ya....what are you doing these days?

        What am I doing?  Still unpacking & trying to fit my sewing corner into my bedroom :(.  Hopefully it'll be done this month, as I'm tired of all the boxes everywhere.  Yes, I've checked out your 'black & white' thread, along with all the others.  I'm spending way too much time reading the threads instead of unpacking :).

          I'm so glad the worst of moving is over for you.  Unpacking is far less urgent than packing to go.  It all has to be done, but at least you can actually unpack those items that are not needed for use right away, at your leisure.  I downsized from a house five years ago and I still have stuff from the house that I actually don't need.  Like a lawn sprinkler (giggle).  So take your time and have some fun.

            Thanks for being so understanding.  My problem is that I am running out of space to put things - obviously, like you, I didn't downsize enough.  I laughed about your lawn sprinkler, though - I, too, have been saying "Why on earth did I pack THAT?"  I'm trying to put these 'extras' into a box for charity as I go along - so far, the box isn't getting full enough fast enough :(.  I'm running out of creative ideas for storing things - only so much room & too much stuff.  You're right - some days I just can't unpack anything - it's more fun to read these threads, do other things, etc., but those darn boxes are still there to haunt me.

            Giggling really hard......I totally understand.  The one bedroom apartment I have is overflowing.  Last year I purchased shelving on rollers to store current fabric on and it's full now.  (Need to sew).  I bought a three basket thing on rollers for yarn, that's full.  Lots of odd balls of yarn from finished projects.  Need to donate.  I cleared some other large containers and reorganized the one bedroom, it's now overloaded again (need to purge).  So I feel you.  These last two years and six months have been crazy.  I bought more than I made.  I also need to purge the old stuff again now that it is older and donate. 

            Now, I'm trying not to buy anything.  Just what I need to add to a project from what I already have.  Like that black cotton thread I'm using for the top.  It's four years old.

            I'm trying really hard to not buy anything now, too!  All my containers are also full!  We're twins :)!  I have scads of thread (I have 2 large wooden thread racks), too - I use the older thread in my bobbins & haven't had a problem with that - it doesn't break the way it would as an upper thread.  I am going to try a tip that one of the posters mentioned awhile back - putting the old thread in a ziploc bag with a drop of water in it & sealing it for a few days - it's supposed to 'remoisturize' the thread.  Have you tried that?
