Catch Up On Crochet #12

Okay, so I have a couple finishes to show you guys this time. I showed you the beginning of this blanket last time. So this is where I was, I was waiting for more yarn that I ordered to arrive… And here it is finished… Each color block is a skein of yarn. I used Paintbox Super Chunky. This is 8 1/2 skeins (the half is the white border that I did 2 rows of). I think that is my only true finish to show… So I started making a top…. I have one side complete and am working on … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #12

Catch Up On Crochet #11

Another 3 weeks has gone by. And what do I have to show for it? In crochet? Not too much. But, I do have something! Since everyone is on the Granny Square kick, I thought I’d join in. It’s a bit larger than a baby blanket, more like a lap throw. I made this with Paintbox yarn. https://youtu.be/aayXnAO5QY0 I also have a start on another blanket… I may finish this one up today… this is also made with Paintbox yarn… The scarf that I showed last time? I think I’ve decided to frog it out, and make it much wider … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #11

Catch Up On Crochet #10

Wow I’m on #10 for crochet posts already. That’s 30 weeks of posts… Anyway, I did not do too much to show you this time. A couple finished projects and a WIP. So, I still have just a couple more headbands to do to finish what I wanted to have ready and here are a few of them… And this is my current WIP, it was going to be a cowl, but is becoming a scarf… I recently ordered some yarn online and below are the unboxings that I did of them… https://youtu.be/6Vhqlxo_QIw https://youtu.be/2POrETFT9Ag So what do you think?

Catch Up on Crochet #9

Well, another 3 weeks have flown by and I did do a bit of crocheting. So, I did some more head bands… I have just a couple more colors that I want to do, and then I think I’ll be set on that style. Once I get those done, I’ll be focusing my attention on making market bags. So I tested out this pattern, to see if I like it… I like the bag itself, but not the handles. I think it’s a good size. I used two cotton yarns together, one pink and one grey to make this bag. … Continue reading Catch Up on Crochet #9

Catch Up On Crochet #8

Three weeks again! So I have done a bit more crocheting this time. For Christmas, I decided to make my nieces headbands. Then I didn’t really know what colors they would want, so I made them all the same… They came out pretty well I think. I also made a cowl/scarf out of the same yarn, since I had some left… And I liked the headbands, so I decided to make more. I’m trying to get enough stuff made to justify getting a booth at a craft show, and I think these will do well. So I’m not done making … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #8

Catch Up On Crochet #7

Another three weeks have gone by, I haven’t made a lot of crochet items, but there are a few to show, so here ya go… Yep, that’s it. However, I was super excited about the mittens because I have had such a hard time making mittens. I don’t know how many I started and frogged out again. I actually think that is where most of my crochet time went. But, go check out my YouTube video on Darn Good Yarn Mystery Bag unbagging. Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #7
