I showed you all awhile ago the toys that I made for an Toy Swap at the ‘Ville. I have neglected to post pictures of the toys we received in exchange! These are WONDERFUL toys passed on to my family via a poster at the ‘Ville.

Thank you Elizabeth for a most enjoyable experience in swapping!

Ok, I have too many WIP’s (work in progresses) – I have to finish these before I embark on another test pattern for Etaria – I am going to be testing a Cardigan for her. I ordered yarn and I have a goal to finish these WIP’s before the yarn comes, or if I can’t do that, before I start on her project.

Here they are – I will keep the list updated as I finish:

1) Last and final top for 4 grand nieces
2) Finishing touches on all 4 tops
3) 3 pouches (gameboy and mp3 player) for grand nephews
4) Halter top and shrug for daughter
5) Tank top

Wow, that is a lot of crocheting, good thing the weekend is coming up!!! I will be busy tonight!!!

Ok, So I have been BUSY!!!

May 18, 2006 at 8:58 pm (Children's Wearables, Misc, Swaps & RAOK)

Here are some of the things I have completed lately:

I just completed testing another dress for Etaria – she thought it looked good. I told her I wasn’t exactly pleased with the color, but absolutely LOVED the pattern. She told me that the dress looked “stunning” – well that is all I needed to be able to post it here!!! She has the most beautiful patterns! I used a Red Heart Soft Yarn in a color called “Grass Green”.

My daughter wasn’t exactly a willing model this afternoon, but she obliged me:

Here is a pink top I did for my daughter. It is that fun fur (eyelash yarn) that I had purchased a while back and didn’t know what to do with it. I actually designed this top on my own. I just kept playing with it until I liked what I saw. She loved it. She wore it to school one day and all her girlfriends wanted one!!! Just to let you know I used the fun fur with a strand of White Red Heart Super Saver to come up with this look.

I was involved in a toy swapat this board I visit often called Crochetville. I was responsible for sending just one toy to a little boy who was four years old. This was my first ever toy I had crocheted, so I decided to do something simple. I did this snake, which the pattern can be found here. For this snake I just used a regular camo yarn from Bernat.

I decided after I had finished the snake that I wanted to try something a bit more difficult, so I made a baby triceratops. This was a major cute pattern. I got the pattern here. I used a Caron Simply Soft in grey.

Whew, I have much more to post but I am tired, it’s been a very long day.

I do have to let you know tho, there is a very special person out there that absolutely made my day today. I will tell you all about it the next time I post, which will be soon I promise!

A Bit of What I am Working On

April 26, 2006 at 6:25 am (Children's Wearables, Misc)

Here are some pics of things I am working on at the moment. I had mentioned before that I was in the middle of crocheting tops for my GRAND nieces. I have completely finished two – with the exception of the embellishments and here they are (I have a pretty large stuffed pig I am using as a “model”).

This is the one for the 8 year old – I am planning on putting some ribbon and such to make it look a little more “girlie”. I actually designed this pattern myself. I have learned already that there are certain ways to make the bodice and then the bottom part and how to attach the straps – I used a stitch called the “Arch” from a book from Leisure Arts called 63 Easy to Crochet Pattern Stitches to make an Heirloom Afghan:


This is the one for the 3 year old. Cute little halter dress – you see the front of it as well as the back. Again, I am planning on putting some ribbon around it! The picture I took looks a little lopsided, but I assure you it is symetrical! This pattern I got from the Luv2Crochet website. It is the Pink Daisies Halter Top Pattern.


I am also working on a bolero for the 13 year old. I have a pattern for the 7 year old, just haven’t started it as of yet.

One other thing I am working on (I am addicted I know!) is a baby set for a friend that just had a little boy. I am making a sweater, hat and booties. I am on the sweater. This is the first baby boy thing I have made. I will post pics later.

Got the FEVER

April 22, 2006 at 6:33 am (Misc)

Yes, you heard me right. The fever of crochet is in my blood. I am becoming a stashoholic. You see, I am a merchandiser which enables me to spend a lot of my day in a lot of different stores. Now, I am not a shopper at all, in fact I HATE shopping, but since I am in the store already, and I have found a new passion for crochet, I make it a point to see if this store has any yarn!!!

Now I am buying yarn just for the heck of it! Here is some yarn I purchased at the Dollar Tree in my neighborhood yesterday. I don’t need this yarn, it was just there calling out my name:

And who can resist only a dollar a skein???Ok, that is it for now. I did take some pics of the projects for my grand-nieces, but I will post them later. Gotta go!

My Very First Blog Entry!!!

April 16, 2006 at 5:06 pm (Misc)

Hello! I needed a place to start showing off some of my crochet. Yeah, I think it’s a bit ego-maniacal, but hey, whatever! It’s just going to be my little spot on the web to showcase my new passion for crocheting.

I, probably like a lot of people, started crocheting many, many moons ago – but lost the passion for it until about 1.5 years ago. A girlfriend of mine was busy crocheting a blanket for her niece, and I decided to try my hand at it again and thought making baby blankets for a friend that had just had twins was the answer. I made one, my girlfriend made the other one … oh my, what a difference! My girlfriend had talent, and I had NONE! My blanket was a good 30% bigger than hers! We laughed, and gave the blankets to my friend anyway, with a pair of THREAD booties. Using thread was a total experience. Took me almost 3 booties before I got it right!

Well the rest is history.

At least it’s my history!

It’s sad that I don’t have pictures of those first projects, to see the progress that I have made. I am actually in the middle of designing my own pattern for my 9 year old GRAND niece. I’ve come a long way baby!

Stay tuned!
