So, I mentioned the bulky chevron scarf. After trying it on, I see that I want to add something to it, that will make it not have to wrap around a 2nd time. B/c of it's bulk, it doesn't want to "stay" closed, as the bulk makes it too short. If ya know what I mean. I'm going to size it/find the right spot to connect it together. That way it will slip over a persons head & stay closed...forming a loop, like this... emoticon

In the meantime, I have a nice coupon for more yarn. But, I don't know what project to start, next. Originally, I'd wanted to make a bunch of these bulky scarves, the next being in patriotic colors. They'd make nice gifts. We shall see. Still need to perfect it.

I got myself one of those cones of cotton thread & am making crochet hot pads. They are the kind that you make with rows of rows of single crochet, that ends up making it 2 sided. They work really well @ keeping the hands protected from heat. 100% cotton thread is the best, for this. I've tried it with acrylic yarn & that doesn't keep ya from burning your fingers, when retrieving something hot from the oven.

Hi. I am guilty of not posting very much (or, being an active team member), but, would like to remedy that.

With the cold weather, I am now crocheting cloche hats, infinity scarves, and headbands. The headbands & hats all have a crochet rose on them.

The scarf I'm making, now, is out of a red, white & blue yarn.

That sounds nice. Once I move into a new place, I want to make a table runner for our dining table.

I've been so busy with getting ready to move, that I haven't done any crafty stuff (of any kind.) I always feel better when I'm making something. Yesterday, hubby helped me choose 5 coordinating yarns for some ripple afghans. I'm really excited. The colors all blend together, are lt blues & aquas. They make me think of summer & the beach. Can't wait to start.

Last night I managed to do about 30 mins of my crocheting. I am in the middle of a runner for my sewing machine table and I want to do a similar one for my chest of drawers.

Hi Anne, I use Knit Pics too, the patterns are really reasonable and very easy to get hold of. I love knitting and crocheting so I always have my hands full especially when I am watching tv.

You gals have been busy as I have also. NE Ohio has had wretched temperatures so it is a good time to stay in and stay warm. I just finished another quilt which is posted on my blog. Now I am working on a quilt for my thirteen year old granddaughter. Also knitting an enterlac vest. Hope all are working on their exercise program also. Please help to motivate me on that aspect.

My favorite place online for more cost-effective yarn is Knit Picks. I'm not certain where you live but I have always been happy with their yarn. Otherwise, I have been known to hoard JoAnns coupons for Patons wool to make it cheaper emoticon . Happy stitching..

Right now, I'm sewing a summer dress. But, a friend of mine has asked me about crocheting her some leg warmers. Soon, I will be on the search for more natural fibre yarns. She doesn't care for acrylics. This will be interesting, and I hope not too expensive. Needing to keep this on the low budget. Idk if that's even do-able. We shall see. Anyone have a suggestion on yarns that are cottons or wool & NOT expensive???

I am making the Bettna Long Cardigan using the Nora Silk Garden yarn. It is super easy and is going fast. My husband and I just recently visited Tucson, Arizona and I knitted all the way there and back on our flights.

DD likes to knit scarves. She knit one & I crocheted it together for her at the end, to make it an infinity scarf. I decided that I wanted to make myself an infinity scarf, too. I crocheted one, making it have a ruffle all along the edges. Then, with some leftover yarn, I made a matching hat that has a bill to it. It seems kind of loose on me, but still looks nice. As long as it doesn't blow off in the wind, I'm ok. LOL. You can tell it's gotten cold around here, since we are thinking about scarves & hats.

I finished up my purple hat. The next crochet project I want to do, is make an infinity scarf. I made some earlier in the year & twisted them in a figure 8....which worked pretty well. It's a quick & easy project.

Yesterday I worked on a doll dress with my youngest daughter. She now has a new appreciation for the work it takes to do sewing. (She thought it would take an hour or so, and we still have work to do on it today.)

I might post a picture on my blog later, if I get a chance.

Funny how we each wish we knew the other craft. I've always wished I could knit. I think knitting has more of a variety of pretty stitches & looks more delicate.

The pink dress you're making sounds very nice.

I am done with my crocheting baby (boy) projects, for now & am sewing a small (9 x 11 size) messenger bag. I've sewn a larger one, before. So, this is just me winging it, using smaller measurements.

I finished the baby ripple afghan. With the same yarn, I had tried to make a hooded baby sweater. All the pieces were done, except the hood. I tried making the hood piece, but it didn't look right at all. I decided to wing it a bit and just stitch the lil coat together, making it without a hood. It's a baby yarn that is white, flecked with blue. I put 3 white buttons on it. My baby gift is almost complete. I've been purchasing a few other items to pack along with it & sending to a friend who lives out of state. I love to put together little care pkg's of sorts. emoticon

I'm crocheting a ripple baby afghan, out of a pretty white & blue yarn. I'm using a pattern I found online. It's my 2nd try, as the first pattern had flaws to it & didn't compute. The numbers didn't work past the 2nd row. Anyway, for some reason....I can't sleep & am starting this project in the wee hours....feeling like I must be crazy for doing so.

I've been crocheting an afghan that I finished yesterday. I decided to make a ruffle along the border. I did that by stitching 3 double crochet in each stitch. You can also use 3 double crochet in one stitch, then 2 in the next. 3-2-3-2-3-2, and so on. Its a cute touch.

about 1/2 finished the edging on my shawl

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place.

I finished up the crocheted slipper sock projects; finished 11 pairs. I saw an online star pattern for cotton washcloths. They're simple to make and look really cute.

working on a cardigan

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much A true friend reaches for your hand but touches your hea

I am presently cutting out the pieces for a cross body bag that will be kind of a mini messenger bag. The pattern describes it as a map bag. I seem to have a thing for tote bags. I enjoy making them and collecting them, and also giving them as gifts.

I have a crochet car seat blanket that I am trying to finish. With all of the interruptions I have been getting of late I am wondering if it will ever be done. Will be nice once it is finished. Last year I made one for a co-workers first grandchild and they all loved it. Especially the fact it has openings for the set belt in the car seat.

It was about a week ago, I finished a feather and fan patterned scarf made with yarn that has bamboo and silk in it. (I got it a while ago, and had used it for something else and didn't have the label any longer- but it was nice and soft). So, now I am working on another scarf, same pattern, with acrylic yarn that is black. gray and white variegated Red Heart Yarn.
I have not done a whole lot of work on it this week, because I have been fighting the sore throat and I've been weak, and kept a headache.
