You Won’t Believe This

May 19, 2009

I uploaded my pictures finally after settling in from the Denver trip. I went through my camera and deleted some old things…all my scarves, jewelry, and other crafty projects. I came here to upload my pizza picture and it’s gone…joy! Not in the camera and not stored online. I will take a new one and […]

I’ve been away too long!

May 1, 2009

Sorry, I was in Denver and my Norton password manager was here in FL. No excuses, I know. I have some new pictures and will get them up soon. I’ve mostly been working on baby things and toys. It’s been different and fun. I made an apple, donut, bran muffin, cupcake, dessert plate, a checkers […]

Crocheted Toys

March 20, 2009

Sometimes you just want to have fun. Actually I think I always gravitate to it, but not in the same way most people do. Creating is the real fun for a handcrafter. I sat up this morning, had an idea, and started to work. Created the pattern myself, used yarn scraps and a bit of […]

My Collection

March 14, 2009

collage This is almost everything I’ve created for sale. The goal was to make 20 and put them into shops. I keep changing the number though because I keep thinking up more combinations to try. I have created my database to keep track of what is going where and when, so that’s a step forward. […]

Crocheted Bracelets

February 20, 2009

These slip-on bracelets are fun to make and look terrific. After I made these with dark wood beads, I also made two with light tan wood beads. All of them look fabulous. You can single crochet size 3 cotton by threading your beads first–12 to 14, depending on wrist size. On the left bracelet, I […]

Other Projects

February 19, 2009

I made this purse for my granddaughter’s birthday next month. Since she will be a cool 13, I decided to try being a little trendy. The purse is made in one piece with a shoulder strap and snap front closure. There is an inside pocket for special small items. I also made a memory wire […]

Incredible

February 16, 2009

This scarf made with Lion Brand ‘Incredible’ has a really unique look because it is quarter inch ribbon, not yarn. It is soft, but more a fashion statement than anything. Handwash and air dry, although it won’t need washing often. Easy to work with on large needles, this one is knit and doesn’t work as […]

Why Scarves?

February 14, 2009

My interest developed slowly in creating scarves. Several factors came together including watching ‘What Not To Wear.’ I rarely thought about accessories until then, but I did notice how an average outfit popped with a scarf addition. That thought settled in just as I was rediscovering my joy for knitting and crocheting. An economic crisis […]

Moonlight Mohair

February 13, 2009

This Lion Brand yarn made in Italy is 57% acrylic, 28% mohair, 9% cotton, and 6% polyester metallic. It says machine washable, but I wouldn’t even entertain the thought. This is a definite handwash and air dry. Once again the picture doesn’t truly capture the depth and character of this yarn. It shimmers but in […]

ALLURE

February 11, 2009

Paton’s Allure is a truly amazing yarn. It is 100% nylon, made in Turkey, handwash and air dry. It is by far the softest yarn I have ever used. The picture in the first post doesn’t do it justice, but you can get the basic idea that it has multiple fibers and a woven fluff […]
