• Puff or Bobble Stitch Crochet Tutorial

    May 22, 2014 admin

    I’ve taken to my hook like nobody’s business the past few weeks and I’ve been blowin’ and a goin’ with that thing. I whipped up an afghan for my in the works bedroom makeover (sharing that soon, yay!) and even started on a stash busting afghan to help me get some more room in my…

  • Dotted Doubles Crochet Tutorial

    May 2, 2014 admin

    I think that I tend to prefer crochet patterns and stitches that don’t lend themselves well to changing colors for a very lazy reason. I hate weaving in the ends. In fact, my grandmother doesn’t even do it, instead knotting the ends like crazy and trimming them up. I must admit in my earlier days…

  • Single Rib Crochet Stitch Tutorial

    April 25, 2014 admin

    Have you gotten over crochet for the year? I typically can’t stand crochet when it’s warm out. And since it’s more of a cold weather craft for me, I’m kind of surprised that I’m still happily hooking through April. Then again, it did snow just last week. It was crazy! I had the air conditioner…

    A while back I got sick. The kind of sick where you spend all but a few hours a day in bed for several days. And I was told that this was going to be the norm for me for about a week. Ugh. So that first day I hopped online and started ordering yarn…

    March 21, 2014 admin

    So the other day I got a ginormous box of yarn with 15 different colors in it. How awesome is that? It all started because I wanted this one color in particular (peacock which you can see in the very bottom of this pic at the top and in most of the DIY photos) and…

    February 21, 2014 admin

    Normally when the weather gets warmer I’m kind of over crochet. But right now I’m hooking like nobody’s business and having a blast with it. I’m even working on an afghan while the windows are open and it’s 70 degrees in the house :) This week I’ve started my blanket and knocked out some fingerless…

  • Tunisian Crochet Tutorial

    January 30, 2014 admin

    Today I’m keeping on with the theme of crochet patterns that I began to love after I wanted to make my hooked items look less like crochet. When I had first seen the Tunisian crochet stitch I was hooked (pun intended!) and when I saw the hook I got to use I was doubly excited.…
