Crochet and Singing!

Well this was a random project that found itself on my hooks this week! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it here before (I’m focused on my crochet when I write this blog!) but I occasionally love to sing and for the last 6 years I’ve sung with some local bands… just for fun!

We only play once every 2 – 3 months so it’s not too much of a commitment and I can just about squeeze it in!! ๐Ÿ˜Š Well we have a gig approaching and at the last rehearsal I was looking at my microphone stand and thought about covering it in crochet!! I’ve used this microphone stand for quite a few years and surprisingly this really was the first time I had thought about crocheting around it!

Here’s a before photo…

And I decided that I would go for it! So, first to choose colours…

I then started crocheting round and round to make a long tube which then slipped over the stand…

Already I’m loving my new stand! I’ve never mixed my love of crochet with my love of singing so it feels great to be able to combine them for the first time!

But I felt it needed something more so I got some gold yarn with sparkles which I had left over from a previous project…

…and I started crocheting stars! I used my own pattern for the stars which is available here

And then one by one I added the stars to my stand…

Until they covered the whole stand…

I love it! We all have different aspects to our lives… some blend and mix, others stay very separate! I really have never combined my singing and my crochet and it felt great to do it! I’m not sure what the other band members will think although the drummer just happens to be my husband!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š He’s given it a big thumbs up!

The band I currently sing with does covers of 60’s and 70’s music and I do more of the backing vocals. We don’t tend to record ourselves so there’s nothing recent to show… but here’s a link going back to 2013 of a band I used to sing with… I really wasn’t sure whether to share this or not! But I have and here it is… It’s all just for fun! We really don’t take ourselves too seriously… ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

So if any of you have a microphone stand that could do with being covered in crochet- go for it! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you so much as always for reading…๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

  1. Very nice! ๐Ÿ™‚ Both the decorated microphone and the video ๐Ÿ™‚ I also like to sing but I don’t belong to any bands etc. I used to sing in a choir but haven’t done that anymore.

    1. Oh Lou thatโ€™s amazing isnโ€™t it! How wonderful!! โค๏ธโค๏ธ I do find that a lot of us nurses have a creative streak in us somewhere!! Enjoy your Rock Choir singing! ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ

  2. It’s great to get to know you a little more! ๐Ÿ˜Š I also enjoy singing and used to sing sometimes with a worship team at church, prior to having my baby girl.

    1. Thatโ€™s fabulous Chelsea… It really does lift the soul doesnโ€™t it! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽตโค๏ธ๐ŸŽต Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ll get back to your singing once your little girl gets bigger! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ

  3. Wow! So many talents and you fit so much in! Superwoman!!!
    Are those crocheted arm-warmers you are wearing in your video? Thank you for sharing your singing with us – a delight!

    1. Awww Sandra… thank you! You are always so kind! They are knitted hand warmers I was wearing (shop bought Iโ€™m afraid! ๐Ÿ˜‰)… I do try and fit a lot in and sometimes life can get a little too busy although itโ€™s all my own doing! Iโ€™m not superwoman though… you should see some of my cooking!! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† xxx

  4. I always take some crochet with me to choir rehearsals, does that count as combining them? Your mic stand looks so lovely now! With the added bonus that nobody could accidentally pick it up thinking it was theirs ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Fantastic Hannah!! Yes, that definitely counts! Thatโ€™s the perfect combination but I havenโ€™t yet managed to actually take my crochet with me!! ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต
