Oh yeah…watching the impeachment hearings (in disbelief at the cray times we’re living in). So craving normalcy…ayyyyyyyyyyyy! 🤪 Finding 2020 inspiration everywhere for journal prompts “reflect on the gifts of your life”… I realize we still have Valentine’s day but I’m creating smaller WIPs like these Green shamrocks which I’ll turn into pins. St. PatricksContinue reading “Hearings, hooking & cooking…”
Summer begins this Friday so why not use vibrant colors? Currently on my hook (I intend on knitting with it as well). I’m loving the new Red Heart Super Savers Stripes yarn colors…currently working with ‘Favorite Stripe’. They can be found at many craft stores/online for just about $3.00. What a cool ‘Love the neighbor’Continue reading “Colorful”
A slip-stitch gives a neat finish to the final row (bottom) of a Crocheted hat (baby hats in this case).
Another way of casting on knitting (in the round) using two different color skeins of yarn. called two color cast-on. No waste of yarn or trying to estimate how much yarn to use for the cast-on. I like using two colors to make baby hats. I’m also on a roll making my multi-colored Granny Square Crochet babyContinue reading “Two color long tail cast on”
Work in progress…Crocheting Granny Square baby blankets for Cranio Care Bears. Yellow like Springtime Daffodils!
#WIP – Work in progress… itty bitty preemie baby hats (and newborn for Charity). Using my 8.5″ #8 circular needles. Depending on the size of the hat I want I cast on 35 or 42 for preemie size. Knit around creates a rolled edge hat. At 3″ 1k. k2tog *. Cut a 10″ lengthContinue reading “Wednesday WIP”
Always a great time up at the Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival. This is 5th year going …I always have blast. We carpool up there with some of my Stitch & Bitch chicks. We go early, walk a lot, chow down a yum falafel & shop, shop, shop!
On my hooks: Spa cloths ( using Lily Sugar & Cream yarn) using the half double crochet, the double crochet and moss stitch. I’m eagerly awaiting my Knit Picks order of their cotton yarn. I ordered light, Spring time colors like Peapod & Blush. A local Mall is looking Springy with a really huge display of theseContinue reading “Crocheting with Spring Colors”
I’m still working on a few of these neat ear warmers to gift to the Asst Managers at our Panera for Christmas. I used Stitch, Stitch Boom pattern. The Moss stitch has great texture. I used Vanna’s Choice 4 ply yarn. This one is actually a dark Brick color, the other is a Dusty Purple.
I had to remind myself to breathe…just breathe as I watched the elections. I am grateful to be able to practice my hobby of Crochet. I brought out my Christmas colored yarn and stitched like crazy making these. Something good came out of that night after all: Christmas baby hats – for a local Hospital maternityContinue reading “Something good…”
