I have a fun giveaway and crochet design to share with you today.
You can get yourself in the running for a copies of Simply Adorable Crochet: 40 of the Cutest Projects Ever and Fabulous & Flirty Crochet along with a skein of the new Red Heart Reflective Yarn and a skein of Red Heart Lustersheen.
I was so excited to work with the reflective yarn. Being that it has such a great safety feature I thought I'd make a pair of boot toppers for when I ride.
This was my favorite photo as you can see the reflection of all the pink on the bike.
I crocheted a rectangle that is about 15 stitches wide by 11 rows tall with a size 16mm crochet hook.
The rectangles actually get used sideways so the width is actually vertical.
I crocheted a chain to use as the cord to lace them up the back. For the chain stitch I used a size K hook and made each about 4 feet long.
I saw another blogger take a photo using a flash to try to share how the cool reflective quality of the yarn works so here is my "flash photo".
I can't wait to where my new reflective boot toppers riding at night to see how they work on the freeway.
