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!
When 2017 began I had two goals in mind regarding crochet and yarn… Finish unfinished projects. Buy no more yarn … or at least as little as possible … and use up what I already have. I am happy to say that I completed another project, a blanket that has been on my “to be… Continue reading Another Blanket Finished!
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
I haven’t crocheted a doll or bunny in quite some time. It was long overdo. Christmas projects in the fall and blanket projects since the beginning of the year have taken a priority, and the dolls and bunnies have been on the back burner … not completely out of mind, just not in the forefront. I’ve… Continue reading Raspberry Ann
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. I was so drawn to it and determined I would make one for myself. And what a great way to use up stash! Who doesn’t have a boatload of stash?… Continue reading Blanket Finally Finished!
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. It definitely gives a cheery winter theme to the house. And while we haven’t had much snow to speak of, so… Continue reading A Table Runner For January
I’ve not been posting much recently but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been very busy crocheting, among other things. I thought I’d share a few Christmas projects I’ve been working on. First of all I finally completed the Granny Tree Skirt I started 2 years ago. It was love at first sight the moment I… Continue reading Crochet Christmas Projects
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
Fall has been long in coming this year. Very long. It wasn’t until the last week of September that summer finally decided to give up. Mid-90’s in mid to late September is not fun. Aside from a few fall like days early in the month summer just kept on coming. But I didn’t let those… Continue reading An Autumn Coaster
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
