Tuesdays on the blog are now going to be dubbed Tutorial Tuesday! Each Tuesday I will be sharing a new crocheting or knitting technique and this week’s topic is the basic granny square pattern. Granny squares are an essential crochet technique for any crocheter’s knowledge base. [Read more…]
I’ve been on a bit of a dishcloth kick lately and today I have a new one to share, the Crochet Cabin Dishcloth! These cloths remind me of something you would find in a camp or cabin and folded over the kitchen sink, thus the name. [Read more…]
Hello, and welcome back to the blog! I’m super excited to share my first crochet dishcloth pattern design with you today!
The dishcloths are made with Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn… my absolute favorite yarn for dishcloths that I have come across so far. [Read more…]
Hello, hello! Hot off the press… I have a brand spankin’ new pattern to share today – the Farmhouse Kitchen Knitted Dishcloth! The modern farmhouse style is so in right now, thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines and their series Fixer Upper. If you haven’t already seen the show, please please check it out! They fix up old homes for home buyers and have the most beautiful classic style and are absolutely hilarious. [Read more…]
Today’s project was a long lost pattern I had made a few months ago, but forgot to post! Better late than never…right?? It was inspired by one of my boss’s cowls that she had worn to work this past winter. It was such a cute shape and a simple enough design that I knew I had to make one for myself! On my way home from work that afternoon I booked it straight to JoAnn’s and bought two wooden buttons and a couple skeins of yarn for good measure (impulse yarn purchase only… I already had what I needed for this. Ha!). [Read more…]
Hello there! Today I’ll be sharing with you a super simple pattern to help get through the winter, a chunky crochet cowl! Whip a few up in any of your favorite bright colors to help cheer up an otherwise cold, rainy or snowy day :). It would also work as a great last minute gift because it can be made an about an hour or two. I love quick projects, don’t you!? [Read more…]
Hello there! I hope all is well with you and your yarn :). We have had quite a relaxing week around here. Last weekend we had Monday off for MLK day so it was a great three day weekend, went to work Tuesday through Thursday, Friday was a snow day! Can’t get better than that :). [Read more…]
Happy New Year! I can’t believe we said goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016 already! The past year went by so fast but I am looking forward to a new year full of yarn, patterns, hooks, and needles.
I have a quick and easy pattern to share with you today. It’s been chilly around here lately, and with this cold weather I find myself stopping at Starbucks on the way home from work more than ever :). The coffee trips inspired me to make these fun and soft cup cozies! [Read more…]
Hello there friends!! I have a new and easy crochet pattern to share today, a crochet fish cat toy! I whipped up a few in a couple different colors and my cats love them! To take them from plain crochet fish to cat toy, just add a few pinches of catnip when stuffing with fiberfill. [Read more…]
Happy Friday friend! In my last post I talked about starting to share pattern round ups on Fridays to cook up some knitting/crocheting inspiration for the coming weekend! With the cooler months upon us I thought it would be a great time to start looking into fall/winter clothing patterns and what better place to start with than skirts?? [Read more…]
Hello again! I know that it has been a little while, and to be honest if you look at the past few posts I’ve written I’m pretty sure they have all started out with “it’s been a while…” or “it’s been a little quiet around here lately…” but, I am planning to change that! 🙂 I have a lot of fun ideas in the works for new fresh patterns, and project inspiration posts! My new goal is to post three times per week with a pattern round-up on Mondays, project or pattern on Wednesdays, and a project inspiration post on Fridays so please stay tuned!! [Read more…]
This post is a little different than what I normally share on here but I thought it might be fun to branch out from crochet hooks and yarn to talk about something all of us do everyday, at least 3 times… and that is eat! I always find it interesting to learn how other people meal plan, go about grocery shopping, and favorite go to recipes. Sometimes I get into a slump where cooking at home just seems like too much at the end of a long work day, but right now I am also at the point where no food that I would go out a get would be any better.
Do you, your friend, your child, or grandchild have a DS? My guess is you probably answered yes to at least one of the above and if you did you’re in luck! Today I am sharing with you a fun new pattern: the Crochet Owl DS case. This pattern was designed for the 3DS XL, and is so fun to make! [Read more…]
Hello friends, today I am sharing with you another easy knitting pattern! With upcoming summer picnics in mind, I wanted to design something that had a summer vibe with both texture and color so I reached for my go-to favorite cotton yarn by Lily Sugar n’ Cream. [Read more…]
