Dishcloths Using Leftover Bits of Yarn and the Pattern!

Like most who crochet I save the leftover yarn from various projects I’ve worked on. I have a two gallon zip lock bag filled with very small “balls” of cotton yarn left over mostly from making dishcloths. These little balls aren’t enough for another dishcloth but I save them rather than toss them. It is difficult… Continue reading Dishcloths Using Leftover Bits of Yarn and the Pattern!

A Box of Crayons Blanket

So far in 2017 I’ve finished two blankets! First it was the hexagon blanket finished in January.  And now A Box of Crayons Blanket crocheted using Lucy’s Neat Ripple pattern for Elliot, my youngest grandchild, which I completed in February … on February 28 to be exact. This blanket reminds me of a box of crayons with all… Continue reading A Box of Crayons Blanket

Blanket Finally Finished!

Way, way back in February, 2015 Sandra posted on her blog, Cherry Heart, about a new blanket pattern she was working on, The Weekender Blanket.

A Table Runner For January

When we took down the Christmas decorations I left the winter wreath and garland hanging, several amigurumi snowmen sitting on shelves and tables, and a number of crocheted snowflakes hanging on little suction cup hooks in various windows.

Little Owl Ornaments

For a number of years I’ve given my grandchildren Christmas ornaments. Recently I’ve crocheted them and with fifteen grandchildren this is no small undertaking. In previous years I’ve crocheted Icicle Boys and Girls, Little Christmas Trees, Santas, Snowmen, Little Stockings, and Matryoshka Dolls. I began the little owls in late August. Good thing too because I made… Continue reading Little Owl Ornaments

Introducing Little Miss Bunny

This has been the year of the bunny for me. I have lost track of how many bunnies have come into the world thanks to my trusty crochet hook and yarn. As I’ve mentioned in several posts, I started down this rabbit trail with Mo’s Angie Bunny. And from there I took off! As is… Continue reading Introducing Little Miss Bunny
