Big Blanket

Well, it’s been quite a while since I last blogged; mostly due to the fact that it’s summer time and I rarely bring out the yarn in the summer. As I was sitting around today spending some quality time with Netflix, as I do (it’s Saturday…), I realized I have so many projects tucked away … Continue reading Big Blanket

Sunset Series

I recently filled this summer’s R&R quota on a week-long beach vacation. The small town borders Lake Huron and is known for its out-of-this-world beautiful sunsets (the picture below doesn’t do them justice). Anyways, the cottage we rented happened to have handmade dishcloths, and the town had a yarn outlet. Obviously this led to a … Continue reading Sunset Series

Nesting Basket

Ever since I created my first crochet basket (as seen on this site under “Bright Basket”), I’ve been hooked. Yeah, I just made a crochet pun. I’m not sorry. I scored some great twine at my local Home Depot and couldn’t wait to make a nesting basket. There are many patterns floating around the internet, … Continue reading Nesting Basket

Crochet Catch All

I’ve had a bit of extra time on my hands, quite literally as this post would suggest, and crocheting a bit more than usual. Luckily excessive crocheting pairs perfectly with binge watching Orange is The New Black. With that I give you this crochet catch all. When I was making this, I wasn’t entirely sure where … Continue reading Crochet Catch All

Cup Cozy

Another cup cozy? Yes. Not only can I no longer handle a little bit of coffee cup heat on my hands but I’m also a cup cozy fiend. After I figured out how to knit a cozy, a crochet version wasn’t too far behind. I actually like the crochet version more. Crochet is generally thicker, … Continue reading Cup Cozy

Bright Basket

If you take a spin past my Valentine’s Day post, you’ll see that I included a festive little basket. This basket is very much a variation of that basket, but bigger and brighter! I also used twine (I love twine). While twine can be a bit difficult to work with, the end result is well … Continue reading Bright Basket

Twine Coaster

When I discovered the possibilities of crochet, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some twine. Once I did, it was baskets galore. I have several baskets waiting in the wings, but this pattern is one of my particular favourites. Not only is extremely practical (I tend to hoard projects, so a functional project … Continue reading Twine Coaster

Nautical Granny

I have this not-so-secret ambition to crochet myself a blanket. I say not-so-secret because I will tell anyone who will listen. Most roll their eyes because I’m not so good at committing to long-term projects. I see granny squares as a happy medium. When I feel like creating something small, I can always crochet myself … Continue reading Nautical Granny
