I know a lovely lady that is having a boy so I used her to make a blanket! I used the modern granny pattern found on The Crochet Crowd’s YouTube channel. I did alter it a little. I turned my work so I didn’t have a dedicated front and back to the blanket. The yarn… Continue reading Baby Boy Blanket
I have been working on this thing off and on since the summer! I originally bought a Dr. Who scarf pack just because I loved the colors. It was my first time buying Stylecraft Special DK yarn. I totally fell in love. There is a large selection of colors to choose from and 7 doesn’t… Continue reading Dr. Who Themed Star Blanket
I have probably said that Stylecraft Special DK is my favorite yarn so far. I admit I don’t have much experience with all of the different types but I do love Stylecraft. My issue with it is I am forced to order online. I am in no way against ordering yarn online I just would like… Continue reading First Completed C2C!
I know of a little girl turning 3 years old that loves Minnie Mouse. I know I love to crochet. Eureka! I made a Minnie Mouse blanket for her that will last her a long, long time. It is over 6 feet long (maybe 6’3″ or 6’4″). I actually didn’t measure the width after I… Continue reading Minnie Mouse Blanket

He needs a haircut. I’ve learned a lot since I first started to crochet. The… Continue reading Progress
I found these on my phone while looking for a picture. These are from before I finished but you can see the pattern. The lighting really changed the color of the yarn…
….but I forgot to take pictures! Darn it. I finished it just today and I was so excited I that I wash and dried it then went to the store for a gift bag and took it to the mom-to-be as soon as I got home. I had to ask her to send me a… Continue reading It is done…!
I wanted to get a 4mm hook with a handle. I hopped in the car at 10pm because I can. Don’t judge. The Walmart here didn’t have 4mm hooks with handles. They had 4.25, 5, and 6.5. Thanks for nothing with this selection, Walmart! I decided to just get the 4.25mm. I don’t need to… Continue reading Dud Hook
