The crocheted parasol
Some years ago while I was browsing pinterest I spotted some absolutely gorgeous crocheted parasols and mentally bookmarked the idea for a future project. Last year I found a clear plastic umbrella and initially I assumed it had been thrown away because it was broken. I had planned to take it apart and use the frame if I could. When I put the umbrella up I was delighted to find that there was nothing wrong with it. I am thinking of simply crocheting a lovely parasol to slip over the top of the existing brolly. That would make it dual purpose as I could use it as a parasol or an umbrella..... watch this space as my crafting head is working overtime at the moment. There aren't enough hours in the day just lately for all the projects that are swimming around in mybrain.
