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….
