I decided at the very last minute that I was going to make a snowman for my husband. This is the almost finished result.
It’s missing coal buttons and a mouth. I may even redo the scarf, since it doesn’t really go, even though I really like it. He of course also needs a mouth. I love that hat. Wish I could find an adult pattern, although I don’t know if I would truthfully be brave enough to wear it.
the almost snow man…
As I don’t imagine that I will be getting back on here anytime soon, I wish anyone who pops on by a Merry Christmas!
Spent some time working on a new project today. I have a sudden interest in crocheting amigurumi, which lead to the purchase of a coffee/tea cup pattern. I picked this really pretty pink color that I love and haven’t had a chance to use yet.
I was very excited to get started on the pattern and got this far at work.
Then I came home and wrapped up. This is my final product and I hate it! Ugh. Well all I can say is practice, practice practice.
Another pattern that I picked up from ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crocheted-pumpkin-pincushion
This is an extremely easy pincushion and lovely little pumpkin to crochet together. I made this particular one for my husband and will be making another for one of my nieces. I have other color yarn that I plan to use for a couple that I plan to use for decorations for work. The ones that I am making for myself are more rustic.
I want to make a turkey next to gear up for Thanksgiving and am on the look out for a pattern that I like. I’ve been searching around Ravelry as well as Craftsy and have seen a couple that peek my interest. Ideally I like a free pattern because I can at least read it immediately to determine if I think I can do it. I will of course pay for a pattern also, if I think it’s something that I am looking for.
Well I am off to make another pumpkin and somewhere in there I am going to squeeze in some yoga.
This is a baby blanket that I made some time ago and am finally able to show the pictures since I finally uploaded the pictures to my computer. The pattern came from Bernat http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=178
Although I have yet to get the ribbon, this is the 98% final product (can I really call it that). This was a record breaking project for me. I thought for sure that it would take a lot longer, but thank goodness it didn’t.
I picked up the project from: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crocodile-stitch-baby-blanket. I was feeling adventurous when I picked out the pattern and was expecting to get greatly frustrated with it. Then I remembered that YouTube was a great resource for learning and looked up the stitch. Next thing I know I am a month on and finished. I can’t believe how much quicker I am getting. It’s a true testament to patience and learning.
Because it’s not enough that I spent a pretty penny last weekend at Joann Fabric, I was back again today buying even more yarn because I want to make pumpkins. Here are a couple of shots of my purchases.
The lower batch are from the Vanna White Lion Brand line and the top ones Red Heart Super Saver. Hopefully I can get started tomorrow and will post some pics.
