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
I had to run to the store today for some stuff and of course went to the yarn aisle. I was looking for particular colors but it seems they had been cleared out. Since I’m a yarn addict I hunted for another yarn I could buy. I went with this cotton yarn because I just… Continue reading Solid Granny Square Cloth
I started on this baby blanket from a free pattern. It is my first pattern where are the stitches aren’t the same throughout. It has a puff stitch which is new for me and driving me insane, crossed over double crochet stitches, and front and back post double crochet. I’m enjoying making it even though… Continue reading Gift Baby Blanket
Willy, this is everyone. Everyone, this is Willy. Willy has only one eye because my yarn was finite. One of my skeins had been used for me to practice knitting before I gave up on that. I couldn’t find that bit so it must have ended up in the trash. One-eyed Willy is a champ… Continue reading Meet One-eyed Willy
I was sad about there not being so much color but I do think it looks nice. The yarn is soft and not scratchy on my skin at all. And here is a bonus picture of my dog Tycho with it. He was asleep and letting me lay it on him but my 3yo… Continue reading Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf is done!

I am currently on row six and I am still only in the gray/black part. I expected way more color. I… Continue reading Misleading
I have this yarn that my husband bought me when I very first started to crochet. It is pink, purple, and gray and has a pink string wrapped around it to give it its texture. I don’t remember what I was going to attempt when I started chaining it but all I knew was once… Continue reading So I have this yarn….
It is official that I’m incapable of matching the guage on this blanket I’m working on. I either get the width but then realize I messed up my foundation row count (too many kid interruptions) then, multiple tries later, (after not getting the width) I get the width again but then I realize that I… Continue reading Guage…. *sobs*
Here are my pictures!
I’m super excited that I have completed it! I also think it would be a good throw blanket as the kid gets older. It is super cozy. It is the biggest project I’ve finished so far. To date I’ve finished 1 baby blanket, 1 infinity scarf (that I don’t quite care for tbh. I think… Continue reading I finished the playmat!
