I am amazed that I actually found a left handed version, I am left handed you see and I crochet left handed. Don’t us lefties look awkward? haha! Basically, crab stitch is a row of double (single if you’re not from the UK) crochet worked backwards and it gives a lovely finished edge to your work.I chose a lovely lime green silk to finish my corset tank and it looks gorgeous.
I love the difference the crab stitch makes to the edge
All I need now is about 20 special buttons and then I can wear this beauty, the drape and feel of the garment is gorgeous, hope it fits me because at this stage it looks VERY long and narrow!
On the way back from our meal at The Old Portelet Inn near St Brelades, we noticed this amazing sand castle. The detail is so perfect. The chap watching over it was great, a young man although he looked older because of his large beard, he was a hippy, he told me but I said I could tell. This surprised him and he said that he thought that maybe I was a hippy too because of the flowers on my dress. I used to hanker after being a hippy in the 70’s so I was quite amused by this.
Mr Hippy asked us if we’d photograph his effort in sand sculpture, I think he is doing just fine, this doorway looks amazing! We gave him a card, hpefully he’ll get in touch so we can send him the photos.
We gave him some money as he kept saying that ‘people think I am begging, but I’m not’…he then proceeded to say he was a magician and he would show us a trick. He asked us to hold out our hands and he put the coins back in our palms, then he laughed and said he didn’t want the money. He did confuse us so Barry gave him one coin back and he said thanks, that will go towards his fish and chips later….
I do love Jersey, I don’t think it will be too long before we go back!
I’ll leave you with a little video of me showing you a panorama of Corbiere Lighthouse
We’re photographing a wedding today, I worry more about getting to where I am supposed to be than actually taking the photos, I think that’s progress!
