I’ve gotten a few things done since last time. I have a few finished items and a few WIPs. I’ve done a few hats. Mostly working on these before work, in the car. I did another large size market bag. And a boho cardi. I have a few things I’m working on… Almost done with this hat, just have to attach the pompom. Which is one of my least favorite things to do. When this grows up it will be a cowl. I also did a video of this: https://youtu.be/8tct8G2UOvY Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #18
Lucky number 13… So I’ve done a few things since last time. I did finish my 10 Hat Not Hate hats that I sent out a couple weeks ago. So there’s that. I did a couple light weight baby blankets… And I decided on a market bag pattern that I’ll do in a couple sizes for shows…. This is the small size, I think I’ll do another size about 5 inches wider as well. Just not sure how many of each I want to make up. Maybe 6? What do you guys think? They are 100% cotton… Here’s my latest … Continue reading Catch Up On Crochet #13
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
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?

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
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
So, here are a few things that I’ve gotten done in the last 3 weeks… Lightweight Mint Chip blanket Purple multicolored hook book Another Superhero hat… trying to find the best pattern for this colorway… Dish towel and dishclothes… I’ve done 3 pink dishclothes so far… Youth size beanie… not sure I like this pattern, the stitches at the top seem to stretch too much… And adult size beanie… I like this pattern, it has a lot of texture which is nice. And a triangle shawl/scarf. Not sure I like this pattern either…I haven’t found a way to wear it … Continue reading Catch up on Crochet 2

There may be more that I don’t have pictures of handy….Everything that I make is also available for sale inmy Etsy shop. The link below will … Continue reading Catch up on Crochet….
