Spirals and Circle
In a recent newsletter from Interweave Press, there was a tutorial showing how to crochet a multicoloured crochet spiral. I thought I'd give it a go. It's simple enough, once you understand how it works. Basically you have to create a section in one colour and then crochet in the other colour on top of it, so you have to keep swapping colours as you go along. It's possible to make the spirals in more than two colours. I was just experimenting, so I've left it at this.
Yesterday there was a circle around the sun, a sort of rainbow, which is apparently technically known as a sun halo or a 22 degree halo. I'm told it's formed when sunlight passes through ice crystals. Interesting to see, though not easy to photograph.
