Wide cuff watch straps coming soon!

So Violet bought me a new watch for my birthday, nothing special just something that I liked and tells time. The strap broke after a week! I was looking around the internet yesterday to find a solid looking strap, preferably a wide cuff type, but they were all twenty dollars! So I gave up and picked up a hook.

I have ventured into this project a while ago. In fact Debbie Stoller showed interest in the one I had posted on Craftster a few years ago she didn't choose it for her book, but it was exciting. Besides it was only a crocheted rectangle and the watch face was sewn onto it, there wasn't much to it.

Anyways, I took a few cue's from the leather made watch straps on the internet and crocheted a nice black acrylic watch strap. I really like it! I does seem to stretch out so I'll have to solve that problem, but that shouldn't prove to be that hard. This design allows for a lot of customization, I can add things like appliqu├ęs, narrower strap, single straps, and maybe button clasps for the strap and the watch face, not to mention all the color's. Once I figure out how to stop the stretch this will definitely be added to my Etsy shop Pirate Crochet.

P.S. sorry for the bad pictures it's hard to get a good photo of black objects with no sun.

Maybe black cascade fixation? It's really stretchy because of the elastic and the cotton would be breathable. HMM carries it, too.

Also, I told you how to spell cues wrong. I thought you meant like netflix or ravelry queue, not like you're taking a cue from something. oops. sorry. love you!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
