Crochet jam cover

I had a little crochet session last week and had these little jam jar covers done before last Thursday but I hadn't gotten round to hot gluing them onto the lids and photographing them.

I am making these jars in preparation for blackberry picking season.

The blackberry photos are from last years trek to pick berries where I got bitten by the hugest inch ant you ever saw.
I dont know whether it was providence or pure luck but on the way to picking we stopped in a bakery that had apple cider vinegar with the mother available to purchase.  I of course bought one.
Why am I telling you this?
Well when I was bitten by this TWO inch ant ( it was bloody enormous and I really must be expansive about its size) , I was able to relieve the stinging by applying vinegar. So I was always meant to be bitten by an inch ant or I was always going to be able to alleviate the pain with the good fortune of having purchased vinegar. It really was a strange thing for me to buy in  a bakery.

Anyhoo I am madly making a  million jam jar covers of varying designs in preparation for the exceptionally large number of jars of jam that I will produce of course..nothing like being ambitious.
I am down to my last jar of jam from last year ( I eat a lot of it on my yoghurt in the morning with muesli...mmm mmm yummo) so I will be happy to replenish my stocks

The white flowered jar was my first effort and wasn't a grand fit but my second effort is just peachy...23 more jar covers to make.

  1. I have never seen big ants. What do you mean by big? Larger than a pink f.e.? Trying to visualize the monster. Poor you.

    I really love homemade jam. Such a pity I never ever find the time to make it myself. (luckily my daughter's boy friend is good in making it, he lives at a sort of farm with lots and lots of fruits, his mother makes everything from the farm, also the meat and the vegetables, every time he visits us, he brings us something homemade)

    Your crocheting is gorgeous. I can imagine how beautiful it will look when you've got lots and lots of them and put them all together.
    They also go well with the buttons. So actually there is no need to make jam at all. :)

  2. Strange but true.....this li'l incident was meant to be, to share with those such as me. Homemade blackberry jam...yummo! Gorgeous crochet covers. How pretty will they look all lined up in a row! Just gawjus!

  3. These are so cute! It's fun that you matched them to the contents :) I've been really enjoying some homemade jam that as gifted to me. It feels extra special and precious to know someone and not a machine prepared it.

  4. adorable!!!thought i will not treat my blackburry and cranberry jam with such of wonderful covers...they are all in a dark,cold basement waiting in silence for their your savoury shots too!
