New Crocheted Pillow….

I have a throw pillow in my living room made from some leftover crochet squares. I decided that since it was becoming worn, and I wasn’t really thrilled with the look of it anyway, I would remake the front cover. Here is the front after I removed it from the pillow….

I wanted to use smaller blocks this time, and I really enjoy flower blocks so I decided to use this block from Jan Eaton’s book “200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans.” I only used the first two rounds from her pattern, and then added another round of granny stitch to get the size I wanted.

I am very pleased with the results! It is very dark and gloomy on this overcast day today (I had a hard time getting pics that really do justice to the colors), and this cheerful pillow is just what my living room needed!

Playing With Color…

With as overcast and gloomy as the day was outside today, I found myself reaching for yarn with lots of color! I want to re-cover an old crocheted pillow for my couch, and I know these colors will continue to make me smile whenever I see them.

I’ll post the “before” and “after” pics of the pillow when it’s complete.

Have a great week!

Making Headway on My Next Baby Crochet Pattern….

I am busily working on a pattern for a baby sleep sack. I am using inspiration from my Granny Twist Baby Afghan.

This pattern is fun to work, and I’ve made good progress on the body of the project, but I find myself impatient to get to the border — excited to see this develop!

Yay — New Fingerless Gloves! … And CyberEtsy2018 Sale is Still Going On!

I am very pleased with how these knitted fingerless gloves turned out!

They began their journey as crocheted gloves, and while they were a quick fix for my cold hands, I came across this pattern. and knew that they were destined for change!

These gloves seem to fit my hands better, with just enough negative ease to make sure no cold air leaks in. I am sure I will be using this pattern again!
