My first thread crochet.
This is a WIP of my first thread crochet... Not perfect, but enough to show me that I love it... You will also see my stab at a homemade way to hold the thread! But it works VERY well!!

That is beautiful! I bought a steel hook and perle cotton to try a fan bookmark as soon as I finish up two knit projects. You are giving me hope, if this was your first project with thread. GREAT idea to hold the thread!

Gorgeous!

I look making doilies.. I just wish they had a more practical purpose. Mine are just kind of sitting around.

I usually use a full 2liter of soda to hold my thread (just plop it on top of the bottle). It allows for spin, and yet it can still be worked easily and quicky.

that is great!! I've only done the fan bookmarks. It looks like a lot of hard work and effort went into making that. Tell us more about that cool little system you have rigged up for holding the yarn!

Actually, I am surprised at how easy it is!! Although I will get a sore pinky from trying to squeeze the cr*p out of the tiny thread... but I put some athletic tape on, and that stops me....

Holder: I took a 100 CD spindle, put the foamy things on the bottom then the clear protector on top of that (cuz there's ridges on the bottom, and it helps to elevate it above the lip of the spindle). Then put an empty papertowel holder, so the thread will sit in the middle with no friction when it needs to come of the bottom of the spool ....

I didn't decorate or anything, because I didn't want any marker, or paint to wear off onto the thread. (Everything was in with the CD's except the papertowel tube.)

I have the CD's in the top cover that came with it right now, but once they are used up, I am thinking I can use that to cover the thread... my hooks fit nicely inside the papertowel tube... for safekeeping. That's it... I was pretty proud of myself! I am not very clever when it comes to that kind of stuff!!

Hope I made sense!
