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

Catch Up On Crochet #5

As I’ve stated, it’s been a super busy few weeks, but let me show you a couple projects that I was able to get done. A market bag that I’m testing out to sell at craft shows, what do you think? And I attempted to make a pet bed. I’ll make another one, but stuff the sides like a pillow so that they stand up. This one flattened out pretty quickly. Oh yeah, and meet Sirius Blackie, he’s such a guy… I don’t really have much else to show, I do have a couple hats to make for orders, so … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #5

Catch Up on Crochet #4

I’ve been a bit busy the last few weeks opening another new store, and Grand Opening is next week, but I do have a few new projects to show off since last time… Another messy bun hat, trying to build up a store of these, though I’ve been selling some of them (yay!). Want to have enough for a craft fair, let me know in the comments if there is a color you think would do great. Messy bun and beanie with a pom… These are all sold… along with the next one… Toddler size kitty hat… This wrap is … Continue reading Catch Up on Crochet #4

Catch up on Crochet 3

So I’ve been trying some new yarns. I ordered some stuff from Hobium, and when the rather large bag arrived at my dad’s house, he was a bit confused since the return address was from Istanbul. But, hey it arrived in 2 days. You can’t even mail something across town and expect it to be there in 2 days. So wow. Here is what I ordered… Some of the yarn I really like, some, not so much. The one I’ve been most disappointed in is the Kartopu Hola. I ordered it in three colors, but now, I’m wishing I hadn’t. … Continue reading Catch up on Crochet 3
