It was another beautiful day in Hawaii! So why not take Sepp (kind of close) to his natural environment. (I just can't get over how fast my model is growing!) The little baby is so adorable! Maybe I should make more baby seahorse? Sepp's head was another part of a Lalylala I altered. This pattern … Continue reading FO Friday: Sepp the Seahorse
This week's finished project is one that has been in progress since maybe September of last year! It is Oleg the Octopus! The pattern is from Lalylala and can be found here. Crocheting the body can take some getting used to because you'd be working with the tentacles already attached. The other parts are pretty … Continue reading FO Friday: Oleg the Octopus
I may be a bit late posting about this, but I finally have this ready! Color pooling infinity scarf using moss stitch. Making this is way simpler than it looks! You'd think you need the perfect tension, hook size, yarn type, and so on and so on......but my favorite technique is just making sure the color … Continue reading FO Friday: Color Pooling!
Here's a quick FO. I'm also posting it earlier than originally planned because they are almost gone! It took longer to attach the ribbons and magnet than it was to make the actual wreath. I used a 5.0 mm hook, but any size will do. There's no gauge. Just keep making a chain until you … Continue reading FO Friday: Chained Wreath Ornament
This time I tried my hand at C2C! I started this project November of last year! It took me nearly a year to make because of all the ends to weave in and all the color changes! The plan was originally to make 12 squares, or at least enough to cover one adult. But all … Continue reading FO Friday: Doctor Who Throw
Here's another gift! I love finding these cool blanket patterns, but I have more blankets than I could use in a lifetime. For this project, I decided to use yarn I already had in my stash. It's a mix of brands, but they seem to have come together very nicely! This gift is not meant … Continue reading FO Friday: Shoreline Afghan
This week's FO are reusable water balloons from Left in Knots! I tried them first as is with a 9.0 mm hook but came out too big for a child, so I omitted a row and switched to an 8.0 mm hook. But after trying them in action, I decided to put that row back … Continue reading FO Friday: Reusable Water Balloons
This afghan has been completed for a while. But since this was given as a gift, I did not want to risk ruining the surprise by posting too early! This project had some ups and downs, and some learning experiences. First lesson was when using multiple colors for squares (in this case, hexagons), work by … Continue reading FO Friday: Summer Mosaic Afghan
The ending of summer was quite busy for me. Family reunion, birthdays, larger waves of orders. One thing that came out of this chaos was a few new colors! So check out my most popular item made with 100% cotton, this water bottle holder. These materials are also great for market bags!
Last year's Black Friday, I had a good haul of this Heartland yarn by Lion Brand. This has been my on-the-go project because it's just a big ol' granny square! I just made a granny square as wide as my arm span. Then slip stitched together the side into itself to form the sleeve. A … Continue reading Finished Object Friday: Granny Square Sweater
