Made this last Christmas for a six-year old. She loved it!

Headbands

Wow! It’s been a three years since I’ve posted anything on this blog. I’m going to schedule a few posts to show the pics of projects that I have waiting in my media library. I haven’t crocheted much in the past year. I’m too distracted. Can’t stay focused or interested long enough to complete anything. Does anyone else go through spurts like this? I’m assuming I’ll pick it back up sometime. I’d better. I have too much yarn waiting!

Baby Booties Kick Me in the Booty!

Booties are sooooo difficult for me! I can follow the same exact pattern, but they turn out different sizes. Getting a pair to look like a pair rarely turns out. Any suggestions?

These ended up being close enough. I sold these, some sandals, and a hat to a friend of mine.

First Crocheted Pot holder–Easy Peasy!

My first pot holder! I was down to only one pot holder in my kitchen. Though I’m not exactly an amazing chef, or anywhere close to that, I do tend to burn myself–a lot–when I actually attempt to make something edible. So, I realized I could make one.

Again, I didn’t use any pattern. Just used half double crochet stitches, single crochet for the little loop, and slip stitched around the edges. Oh, I did the multicolored side, then just switched yarn and made the back side. So, I folded it together at the “seam” between the two yarns and┬ásingle crocheted around the three remaining sides, then slip stitched around them. Badda Bing!
