Cocktail

cocktail1

This is a crochet cocktail I designed in honour of my sister-in-law, who introduced me to the colourful and delicious world of fancy drinks. This particular cocktail has the advantage of being much cheaper than most cocktails, although I can’t claim that it tastes very good.

This pattern uses 8ply wool and a 4mm hook and is written in American crochet notation. The finished cocktail is 16 cm tall.

  2. Thanks a ton for your post. I want to comment that the tariff of car insurance varies from one policy to another, given that there are so many different facets which play a role in the overall cost. For instance, the brand name of the car or truck will have a massive bearing on the charge. A reliable aged family motor vehicle will have a less expensive premium over a flashy racecar.

  5. Thanks for the guidelines shared in your blog. Yet another thing I would like to talk about is that weight loss is not exactly about going on a fad diet and trying to shed as much weight as you’re able in a few months. The most effective way in losing weight is by using it gradually and obeying some basic ideas which can allow you to make the most through your attempt to shed pounds. You may realize and be following these tips, yet reinforcing information never affects.
