Today is the first post in my new weekly series: Watch Me Crochet Wednesdays.

I’m not doing a fancy instructional crochet video; just a short video of me crocheting whatever I’m working on at the moment. I hope you like it.

This video shows me crocheting:

  • around a polystyrene sphere in an attempt to make a balloon*,
  • in (US) half double crochet / (UK) half treble crochet,
  • with a 6 mm crochet hook,
  • using Wendy Supreme Cotton Chunky in shade no 1420 (white).

The video was taken on the Bank Holiday Monday. We had amazing weather so I’m seated outside at the patio table, crocheting al fresco. On a sunny weekend it feels wrong to sit on the livingroom couch with my crochet. A slight breeze, warmth and the shade of our patio umbrella really gets my hooky vibes going. Do you like to crochet outside?

*The balloon one of three I have to make for a custom order I received on Etsy two weeks ago. I will share more about this interesting project later.
