It’s time for another Christmas Present Crochet-Along!  I know many of you had suggested a washcloth as one of our “quick” gifts and this one is perfect!  You may decide it looks to pretty to use as a washcloth but even using it in the kitchen as a decoration is a great idea!  My good […]

Vintage Violet Shawl

How can you love one project more than the other? It’s getting really tough because I’m in love with this shawl. It’s my first “lacy” type of project, and it turned out just how I had in my mind.  If you know how to use the single crochet and double crochet stitches… can make this […]

I’ve loved making my Southern line of hats and just couldn’t see myself “putting” the creativity away because summer is practically over and everyone is now ready for fall.  Anyone can see from perusing through the pages of Facebook and blogs that people are gearing up for the colder months and excitement is in the […]

The Patterns Keep Coming!

So after many hours of “wrestling” with my yarn, I think I finally created the boot cuff pattern I was attempting to make.  Joining the cuff without a break in the fpdc ((front post double crochet) was the hardest part.  I am sure I understand how I did it, but have you ever tried to […]
