Oh No!

The seam split at the wrist!
I put my arm into my sleeve and the seam split right open!


Dismay!

Access All Areas: International Access Symbol

My crocheted access symbol
with a white crab stitch border
This is the International Symbol for Access for people with disabilities; all disabilities whether visible or invisible; not just for people who use wheelchairs.

This symbol is no stranger to controversy and it has made the news again this year because it is undergoing a transformation, sparking renewed debate.

Strangely, the International Access Symbol has something in common with 'yarnbombing'; i.e. a guerilla movement has taken it to heart.

Meditative or … boring?


The ribbing on the Belcarra Cardigan seems to be taking forever to complete.

It is simple crochet ribbing–working evenly, 14 stitches per row, the same row over and over–very meditative … or dare I say boring?

Belcarra Ribbing


The final stages of the Belcarra Cardigan: crocheting ribbing around the edges and on the cuffs.

I have lots of photos to share and a pattern idea for learning how to make crochet ribbing.

Two Elephants

One of the loveliest aspects of Lupey Loops is getting to know visitors through comments, emails and each other's blogs. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, stories, enthusiasm, advice and encouragement.

Thank you for also connecting through other means like Pinterest. I don't use it very often, but it is a great source of ideas, especially for visual learners.

Yesterday, regular Lupey Loops visitor, Ingrid K, shared a pattern for a cute crocheted elephant on her Pinterest board "Myfunkycrochet" and it reminded me of a special elephant that I crocheted in 2010 so I decided to share both here today.
