Welcome to my blog, dear members of the communities: : #Crochet
and the steemit community in general.
In this publication I will share my new project which consists of weaving amigurumi from the collection of superheroes for boys and the collection of princesses for girls.
As I mentioned in the St-Patrick's Day Leprechaum publication (https://steemit.com/needlework/@fabianaporteles/crochet-weaving-for-st-patrick-s-day-tejido-a-crochet-para-el-dia-de-san-patricio
); for me weaving is an art that fascinates me, I do not weave by patterns, but everything I see or imagine I can weave, I simply take the thread and the needle and go molding and creating as I weave.
Where I live in Venezuela we are going through an economic crisis that in order to overcome the situation we must put the maximum of our ingenuity and creativity. At this time to give gifts and toys to my son, I make them with my own hands, just as I knitted the spider-man clock in my first publication.(https://steemit.com/needleworkmonday/@fabianaporteles/spider-man-watch-reloj-tejido-a-crochet-del-hombre-arana
The objective of weaving this collection of superheroes and princesses is: to share them with the steemit community, to make them to give as a gift to my son and for sale.
This project must be thought and organized, since I must mobilize myself to another country like Colombia (at a distance of 10 hours) to buy the crochet thread at a lower price, since here in Venezuela costs a single roll 4 times more expensive than in Colombia, while in Colombia costs the equivalent of $ 1 in Venezuela the same roll costs the equivalent of $ 4, of course are the land mobilization expenses but if I buy several threads this cost is still lower than buying here in my own country.
So I'm going to share with the steemit community what the elaboration of this project implies from the beginning.
Selection of the pieces to weave (in our case the collection of superheroes and the collection of Princesses)
I make a table where I specify the colors of each piece (to see what is the diversity of colors I need to weave all the pieces)
Then I observe with the images the volume that I use of each color and the frequency of a color in the diverse pieces to estimate the quantity of colors and the volume of thread that I need.
Last but not least, I check what colors of crochet threads I have at home and what colors I need to buy.
This explanation is shown step by step in the following 3 images:
Quantity and colors of crochet threads to buy
I will be able to carry out this project thanks to the help of my maternal grandmother who lives in Mexico and sent me the money to buy the crochet threads, since in Venezuela the monthly salary of a university professional is the equivalent of $ 6 monthly and only one carton of eggs costs the equivalent of $ 3, if only trying to buy food is difficult, buying something more almost impossible, but God makes the impossible possible.
And I don't extend myself telling the bad economic situation that my country Venezuela lives, because that would be exaggeratedly extensive, I only count the part that involves the elaboration of my project: place where I buy the threads, person that helps me to finance my project and everything that I must do previously before showing a beautiful piece woven to my friends of the steemit community.
The images of the superheroes and princesses were taken from the internet through the Google search engine of the following pages:
