Want to Crochet

During Blogmas The Ray of Sunshine Blog posted a “finds of Pinterest” post! She created one of these under a blogmas theme and I thought it was super cool. I was inspired by this and decided to try one of my own! It’s not going to have any pictures, so as to save on media space, but it will have links to the websites that originally posted about it. I am going to have a crafty Pinterest Finds this month. The specific craft…..crocheting!

I have a baby hat, a scarf, and a cowl!

Baby Turban by This Mama Makes Stuff – these are the cutest hats! I love how simple they are to do and what a great yarn buster project!

Revival Crochet Triangle Scarf by Make and Do Crew – I started this in the car ride I had about a week ago! I am loving it so far!! I am trying to use up all of my small amounts of yarn before I move, so it takes up less room in our apartment and doesn’t totally overwhelm my new husband. Therefor this will be a multi colored scarf!

November Cowl by Knit Coast – I’ve never made a cowl before, so I’ll be curious to see how this goes! Joining in the round makes me so nervous, so I’m hesitant to start it! I’ll get there eventually!

I’m still looking for a nice baby bootie pattern where the pattern is actually correct and I don’t have to fix it as I go. If anyone has one, be sure to let me know!

Crunching Leaves Mod Scarf

So my sister, if you recall the story from this exciting ride of a hat, has decided to use my yarn skills to her advantage every now and again. Well, it didn’t work out with the hat….like at all. But, for some reason, she graciously gave me another chance. This time with a scarf!! So we found this Crunching Leaves Mod Scarf and she decided that it could work. You have to go check out her blog post about it, even if it’s just to see her yarn she used. It’s gorgeous!! I thoroughly enjoyed this project the whole time!! The green and blue yarn were thinner and nicer yarn than the pink, much softer. It didn’t end up as long as I would’ve liked, but I was really proud of it! And, it was the first time I had ever made tassels! I worked on it off and on for about 3-4 months while listening to podcasts, audio books, and watching tv shows. It was really enjoyable! Though I would like to do a bunch of smaller projects to feel like I’m accomplishing more!
