Curtain Update

A lot has happened in the last two years – obviously. I finished the colorful curtain and am still working on the peacock curtain. I’ve also tried to branch out from just Hot Pads and Dishcloths. I’ve started making some fingerless gloves (wrist warmers) that sell well at the Craftacular. The last Craftacular in 2018

Curtains for the House

Not that I haven’t been busy with crocheting and knitting for the next Craftacular, but I really want some new curtains for my kitchen. I decided filet crochet was what everyone else was doing, so why not? Some time ago I had started this multicolored piece not knowing what I was going to do with

In June of 2016…

I crocheted a baby blanket or two for people having babies. This one was made with baby weight yarn, but would be a better size if made with finer yarn. I found this pattern in an old crochet magazine that I don’t think is put out any more.   Then I made another one in

Fall Is Here and Gone

Winter hats

I have been busy with my needles and hooks, but just not good about sharing what I’ve done. So, I’m starting to catch up today. I made a crochet hat for a friend with his yarn. It is my favorite crochet hat pattern from Ellen Gormley, called the Driftwood Cap. It can be found in

Finished order of 4 shawls

And in the nick of time. These are being given as Christmas presents today from a friend to the women in his family. They get to fight over who gets which one. I would be apt to take one, but remember the others and when I needed to borrow one… BurgandyShawl BlueShawl First Shawl to
