No Needle Knitting

My arts & crafts blog – by Curtis Rogers

iPhone art

I created this image using a combination of iPhone applications and image editing to create a really nice still life watercolor.

Cotton pot holder

Made this quick and easy pot holder in light blue and white cotton yarn in a linen stitch with a row of single crochet.

Teaching Tunisian Crochet

I had a wonderful time attending the third annual Purl’s Yarn Emporium spring retreat at the Blue Ridge Assembly YMCA in Black Mountain, NC the weekend of April 14, 2018. I decided to offer an informal session on Tunisian crochet and 10 people attended! The retreat was much fun!

Artists for Africa collages

These are two collages I created for and donated to the 2018 Artists for Africa gala. Unframed, $75 each. Paper, book, magazine, postage stamps, and metal leaf on canvas board.

Black stone

I only took time to cover one stone on vacation 🙂

Linen stitch scarf

This is a very basic scarf that only took me about five days to finish. I rarely use acrylic but had two skeins of this red heart to use up.

Red noro scarf

Here’s another scarf just finished. Working with this Noro was a bit tricky because it broke a few times. I used five skeins of it for this feather and fan type pattern.

Winter party sale

This year at work some of the crafty staff are selling their items. I only had six scarves available to sell so hopefully they will find a home 🙂

Natural alpaca scarf

This 100% alpaca was like crocheting with butter! Amazingly smooth and faultless! I’ll have to be sure and invest in really good alpaca from now on. I chose a basic feather and fan pattern for this scarf and worked it up in only a couple of weeks. It was a giant skein of 650 yards.
