I have been thinking about crocheting a pillow for a long time. But there was no concrete idea. Seeing the VKontakte emoticons in the form of a cheerful avocado, I'm immediately going to implement it within the framework of this master class.
At the yarn store, I stop at Velor by Nako Lily, the colors are gray-green and withered yellow. The thread is pretty thick. Hook # 5 is prepared for her. But there was no brown yarn from the same series, so I choose Himalaya Dolphin Baby. It is visually no different from velor, but somewhat thicker. For knitting it will be convenient hook number 6.
The knitting progress is simple. These are two parts of the same size - halves of one avocado. I will not sew them, but I will tie both walls together.
Magic ring, as it is otherwise called, will be the basis for knitting halves. In the photo I will demonstrate how to make an amigurumi ring. We orient the working thread in the way shown in the photo.
The further course of knitting will be in a spiral. I decide not to start the rows with stitches, so I use a large pin for the marks. The second knitting line is completely increments. In each loop of the previous row, 2 single crochets are knitted.

How to embroider with a sewing machine
Today's master class for those who want to learn how to embroider with a simple sewing machine.
You can embroider with any lockstitch sewing machine that can adjust the upper and lower thread tension. The most comfortable are the center-bobbin foot sewing machines, which free up both hands of the embroiderer for work. You can use old cars that you inherited from your grandmothers and great-grandmothers.
Modern cars are driven by an electric motor, and we need a hand or foot drive in the machine.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to embroider on a typewriter with an electric motor! The fact is that at low speeds (with weak pressure on the pedal), the electric motor shaft rotates unevenly, in jerks. If in your machine the rheostat (a device in the pedal that changes the voltage) allows you to ensure the slowest rotation of the flywheel and at the same time the movement of the needle is smooth, without jerks, then this will be your incredible luck! My "Seagull" cannot! And, frankly, I do not know of such cases when an electric machine made it possible to do embroidery. And you can embroider only at a small number of machine revolutions, since the movement of the hoop is possible only in the intervals between the punctures of the fabric with a needle. We need coordination of the work of arms and legs, which will certainly appear over time. And at the very beginning, your right hand will almost constantly lie on the flywheel in order to make punctures in the fabric with the needle as accurately as possible, according to the lines of the embroidery pattern.
