I have joined Crochetville ( A community of people like me - in love with crochet! :) I am also thinking about joining the Crochet Guild of America - but don't want to spend $35 right now to join. Anyway - I also signed up for my first yarn swap! I can't wait to participate, this will be fun!

Here are 2 quick scarves I made. One is a scarf I made inspired off of the Window Pane scarf I found on I made it with Magic stripes. The darker scarf is just a simple double crochet scarf made with Trekkin stripes yarn. I really, really like making items with the sock yarn - it is very lightweight and easy to work with. It is also pretty with the different color patterns. Posted by Hello

This is a shawl I made from Trekkin sock yarn. It is short because I ran out of yarn and only had the yarn in similar colors but stripes instead of varigated - but it works. I love the lightness of it - but because it is wool it is still warm. Posted by Hello

Here is the "collection". Posted by Hello

These are blurrier than I wanted them to be, but here is another. You probably can't see it - but I am using ribbon and little bows as accents on the sweater.. It is just double crochet stiches and chains. Very easy, and quick. Posted by Hello

This is a sweet little baby sweater that this lovely elderly lady taught me when I was in college. In thinking about crochet recently - I want to remember how to make it and write down her pattern so others can use it.  Posted by Hello

Here is my nephew with his baby sweater. Posted by Hello

This sweater was just too cute to pass up! I don't have a baby, but my sister does :) So little mardie will have a new sweater/coat. It only took about 2-3 hours to make. Too cute! Posted by Hello

My son's favorite Disney video is snow white. So this somewhat explains why he is in the room with a snow white outfit and shoes. This, his friend at church 'Rhonda' and Auntie Trouble are just a few of the things that make my Jason as special little boy. He's a cutie. I love this boy! Posted by Hello

And here is the baby sock I made with wildfoote. I think it is smaller than the organic cotton socks, but am not sure. I need to ask my sister for the sock measurements. The sock is much tighter (w/ the same needle) than the cotton. the wool/nylon mix definately feels different. I probably needed to make more adjustments. Posted by Hello

My daughter asked me for a Barbie outfit - here is my creation. Made it on the way to one of our favorite restuarants - Old pancake house. Yum - cherry crepes! Posted by Hello

Here is my nephew with organic cotton socks I made for him. This not my pattern, I found it online. I will have to post a link to give proper credit! Posted by Hello

This is a skinny scarf I made with Wildfoote handpainted sock yarn. Soft and pretty. :) My own design. Posted by Hello

Another weekend gone

Where do they go. Only 2 days to spend with my family and myself. Then back to the grind. Oh well - this weekend was pretty good as weekends go. Lots of family time and even a date with my husband Colin. No complaints.

And lastly - these are 2 dishcloths as a gift to Linda Jones for her fixing the food at our Church Superbowl party. I stiched them up during the party - guess I wasn't that into the game!! :) Posted by Hello

More Dishcloths. the square one uses the bobble stich which i have not done before. And I'm sure you recognize the star! Posted by Hello

These are my cotton chenille facecloths. very, very soft. Posted by Hello

This is the purse after it was felted! I have a front-load washer, so it was taking forever. I figured out that I needed to add really hot water, I boiled some in my teapot and it felted very fast! Posted by Hello

This is my handbag - not felted. Just sc crochet and a decrease on each side for the flap Posted by Hello

My 2nd dishcloth, this is in Lily's Sugar & Cream?? Anyway - I wanted to show the difference a higher end cotton can make! Wow from one I would want to use on my face, to one I would not. The dishcloth is still nice, but the Organic cotton is so much softer. I ordered a lot on ebay, I can't wait to see what other items it will make! Posted by Hello

Star washcloth - credit due!

I want to make sure I give credit for the washcloth. It was not my design. I used one from Janelle Schlossman, which I found on - this is the link

I wanted everyone to make sure who's pattern it was!

Star washcloth - in Blue Sky Organic Cotton (Nut) I thought I would do something other than the typical square! Posted by Hello
