Snail Trail

Apparently it’s National Crochet Month this month. When I found out I was determined to do some crocheting.

My daughter has a birthday this month and hinted that a crochet snail might be nice to go with her real snail (yuk!)

I searched for a cute snail but didn’t have much luck finding a pattern I liked. So I did what all of us do from time to time and made one up. Although it was not without its problems as the first draft snail kept toppling over but a crafty tweek of the shell sorted that out.

SAM_3902As you can see the real snail was starting to come out of his shell so I popped him back into his tank before he slimed anything!

Happy National crochet month! Anyone else got a crochet project on the go?

Until next time,

  1. Those are a couple of the cutest snails I’ve ever seen. You did a great job on them. Very impressive. Well done.
    I like the real snail too. What his name, he’s an awesome critter, πŸ˜‰

  2. oh how cute! the amigurumi snails I mean. As usual, I’m weighing in too late to say I have loads of them on my Amigurumi Pinterest board! Is the real snail an African Giant? My brother’s girlfriend had some of them and they were creepily fascinating!

    How cute is that! Not only do you sew but crochet as well. I tried to learn to crochet but holding the hook and getting the tension right was just is too much for me! I did get a dishcloth made but don’t really like it. So I’ll admire your work instead. πŸ™‚

  4. For years I battled snails in my garden so I’m not a fan of the real one. However I love the crocheted variety. I especially like the fact that they can be made up using scraps which makes them look quite funky. I guess I will have to do a bit of crocheting now that I know it’s National Crochet Month! I will make a few Granny Squares to add to my pile. Thanks for sharing Chris.
