Current Project – Sewing Thread Lace Fingerless Gloves

Hi! Today I’m showing some pictures of my latest project.

When I started knitting and making crochet I used thick wool yarns. Then I started making items with thinner wool, and then I passed to cotton crochet threads. First sizes 6 and 12 (relatively thick) and then sizes 20 and 60 (very thin).

The threads were getting thinner so I knew someday I would crochet with sewing thread. Well, that day has come. I’m finally making myself some victorian inspired lace fingerless gloves with, of course, sewing thread.

    have I told you that you ar freaking awesome but also freaking nuts? πŸ˜‰ that must be a LOT of work! isn’t the thread cutting into your finger while you crochet?

      Lol! I love these challenges, it’s when they just don’t work as I wanted that I go nuts and pissed off πŸ˜›
      About my finger, my skin is a bit thicker in the area where the thread pass because of my other crochet projects, so the thread isn’t cutting it (Fortunately!)

    Do you create your own pattern or adapt the ones that are for a thicker yarn? I have to say this is beautiful work!

      Thank you πŸ™‚
      I adapt patterns for thicker yarns but in this case I got tired/angry because the rest of the glove wasn’t working the way I wanted so I set this project aside. But someday I will work on it again.

      • Debra Davis says:

        LOL! I would have to completely agree with you on setting it aside when it completely ticks me off! Good luck!

    Hi! Your crochet looks great, so I hope that you get back to it sometime. I’ve been thinking of making some crochet butterflies using sewing cotton – have you been using it single or double?

      I haven’t worked with such a thin thread many times, but good light and a good hook (ergonomic) can help. One think that I notice was that because the hook was so small, I was constantly hurting my finger (left hand) so I used a band-aid on it. But I guess also has to do with the way I do crochet.
      Hope this helps
