My first crochet

       My first crochet trial. I have been learning the basics of crocheting from the internet. I am sure I have made lot of mistakes and I don't properly understand still. But I am very interested and hope to learn more.

Quilled Aluminium

       Inspired by a post by Ann Martin at All things paper I tried some Aluminium quilling. I used  a big needle to roll and it is not as easy as paper of course. I need to do more of this and learn how to cut smaller strips and find some nice tools to roll and clasp the Aluminium at folds.

    I first marked on the bottom of the can to size the strips. (Too big it turned out:(   )

       I cut out the strips .

             I then turned the strip with a twist and then curled it with a needle. 

            After curling for a bit I curled with my hand, somehow after a couple of curls it becomes easy.

         I adjusted the coils as best as I could to get a symmetry . One or two strips tore when I twisted them .
