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…]
Hello again! Today I am sharing with you a pattern to create mini crochet baskets which are totally functional and super cute! I made a couple of them for drawer organizers because lord knows my drawers organizing. Below you can see one that I already put to work in my “nerd” drawer to hold my DS games, but really they could hold anything. I might make up a few in some neutral colors to hold soap in the bathroom or hold jewelry on my nightstand. [Read more…]
Hello friends! It’s been so long since I have written a blog post… about 9 months or so I think?? To catch you up since my last post in June I started working full time and… we bought a house! It’s a cute little fixer upper that was built in the 1940s and I am hoping to get some posts out about projects and decorating things. [Read more…]
