Snake Amigurumi Neckpiece

This is made using two strands of Cannon gold color thread. I designed and crocheted this snake necklace as an entry to a contest for the Year of the Snake, but it didn't win any prize. I'm glad to have it back, though I don't know if I'm ever going to use it. Its very comfortable to wear and the color looks nice with black attire...ordinarily, I will look crazy wearing this design. I never fancied crocheting a snake before, but surprisingly I enjoyed this project :)


Chain Shrug

This is my project made from a crochet buddy's published design, the Beatriz Shrug featured in this month's issue of Inside Crochet :) For this project I used 3 balls of Cannon thread and 3mm size crochet hook.

Cannon, a versatile cotton thread

Cannon thread can have various uses, so I can say its a versatile cotton thread. We can use different sizes of hooks, or use them in double or triple strands (as I've mentioned before). We can also try out different kinds of patterns and use it to substitute for more expensive yarns.
I've just checked out my project page on Ravelry and so far I had entered 200 projects made from Cannon threads :)
