This triangle shawl has such a unique look to it, especially with the color changing yarn I used. I just couldn’t stop looking at it while it hung on my mannequin. There’s an amazing texture present that I love. It almost looks like a layered shell, but it isn’t. Does that make sense? Ha!
Anyway, I’m thrilled with how it turned out and it’s going to a very special person! Read more
The other day I was thinking…there are so many holiday parties coming up. What am I going to wear?
Sometimes you want to dress up, buy a pretty new outfit or dress and do you really want to cover up with a bulky coat? I know I don’t. On the other hand, I don’t want to freeze either! Dilemmas, dilemmas.
So I came up with the Winter Wishes Wrap!
Last week I released the Wavy Shells Beanie that you can see at the link and I didn’t want to release just a hat and nothing more. I love sets and recently I’ve been doing hats and scarves. Well this time I wanted to do something a little different.
We got our first snowfall yesterday. It was beautiful and ominous at the same time.
It’s definitely time to start stocking up on the winter necessities once again and what a better place to start than with a beanie! I say you can never have too many winter hats and scarves!
I adore shawls!
With this pattern, I kind of worked backwards in my design. First I picked the yarn. This pattern uses the Lion Brand Heartland yarn. This is the first time I’ve ever worked with this and I tell you what…I don’t think I’ve ever felt a softer yarn. Hands down. And I’m not an affiliate for Lion Brand.
Well hey there!
I called this week’s pattern the Light & Lacy Poncho because I crocheted it using baby weight yarn! Bernat Softee Baby, to be exact and I tell you what—I’m so glad I did!
If you want a light weight garment that is airy and soft, yet can keep you warm during a sudden Autumn breeze, then this is the poncho for you! Read more
I have to laugh since I just finished crocheting this Angled Clusters Scarf and the temperature today is in the upper 70’s! Last week we were cozy in our sweaters or hoodies, which prompted me to choose this project.
It just goes to show how unpredictable Pennsylvania weather can be.
That’s also one of the reasons that I don’t pack away my families clothes based on the season. I’ve heard that people from other places and climates do that, but honestly, it would be a waste of time for us. We need a variety of clothing categories year round.
I’ve been seeing these super chunky cowls since last year (I may be late to the party…lol) and I’ve been wanting to make my own.
That’s one of the things I love about being able to crochet. I can recreate trendy, beautiful items without spending a fortune at a boutique!
Well hello there!
Today, I’d like to share a new pattern with you…
The Cranberry Chill Wrap!
This wrap is so stinkin’ easy and beginner friendly. It’s basically a giant rectangle.
The most difficult part is the cluster stitch and I’ve created a great little photo tutorial just to make it even easier! You can find that tutorial here.
With only two days left in August and Autumn swiftly approaching, I thought I’d better get a jump start on my warm outerwear collection for the year!
