Latest Crochet Projects!

I have taken a long time to post again partly because I have had a rough go physically and partly because I wanted to determine what this blog is to be about.  It originally started as a scrapbooking blog, and eventually turned into crochet.  I crochet much more than I scrap.  So, I will stick to crochet.

My latest project is a scarf made with Bernat's Zoey yarn pictured below.



This yarn is very soft and bulky weight.  It is made with 3 skeins of yarn.  I did 6 sc across, and continued to sc to the end. This is my own pattern, and it's very simple!  I love how warm and soft this scarf is.  It goes down almost to my waist.  It's a long scarf.  If you want one made for you, contact me.  I will be selling them for $18.

The next project is fingerless mitts made with an acrylic yarn.  This is my own pattern, and it's a waffle pattern.  They are metallic and very pretty.  I added a feminine detail with the lace, and I am thinking of adding a flower embellishment on the top of the mitts.  Perhaps a black or white rose.  Tell me what you think!




I am currently working on several projects.  I am crocheting a cotton valance for my dining room windows.  I am also working on a pattern for a top.  I have a cotton tank top halfway done, but I need more yarn.  Unfortunately, I bought mill ends for the cotton tank as it's a project for myself to save money, however, I can't find it anywhere!  I will probably frog it, and make something smaller.

I recently joined a facebook group called Yarn Lotto!  I love it!  You send a skein of yarn in once a month, and they randomly draw a winner to receive all of the yarn that everyone sent in!  If you don't participate, you don't win.  I think this is an awesome way to try to win free yarn. 

Happy Hookin,
