Recent Projects

December 7, 2014

Wow it’s almost been a year! These past few months have absolutely flown by and I’ve regained my crocheting desire. So here a couple recent projects that I can share. There are some others, but they are on their way to the lucky recipients so until then, you’ll just have to wait.

The pattern is a free one from here and I used Caron Pounds, both shades of green I already had on hand. In an attempt to make it a little bit bigger, I also used a J hook. This little guy went to one of my invisible friends (a friend on Facebook who I haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting in person) for her little one who is due any minute now. Another invisible friend loved it so much that I am currently in the process of making a second one; the only change I’m making to the second one is using a K hook.

Her blog is worth following just to see all the pretty things she does. I’m in a group on FB and we do a gift exchange each year. These are part of the package sent to my invisible friend and sadly the pictures did not turn out that great.


Christmas 2013

December 27, 2013

This was a good year. After relocating to Minnesota two months ago I was able to come back to Florida to spend time with J and our families.  The best part was surprising J and my godmother.  First was J. I told him I was flying in on Sunday but I actually arrived on Saturday.

My godmother and her husband didn’t know I was in town. So when J and I went to my parents for Christmas I called when we arrived. Dad gave the phone to godmother who said they were waiting on some guests. That’s when I walked in and said ” yeah, you’re waiting on me.” Her expression was perfect!

I got a beautiful necklace from J and my parents got us tickets to see Alton Brown. I got warm gloves from both sets of parents and an alpaca scarf from J’s parents.

I made an afghan for J’s mom.

It’s the Barghello pattern from “Best Loved Afghans” using Caron pounds in black, light pink, rose, light green and sage green and a K hook.
