Trying to catch up on some crochet projects here.
I quite like this star washcloth I made in yellow Lion Brand cotton for the nephew. I saw the pattern over at Creative Pixie and started making it within a few days.
It took a few tries to get it right, but I love how it turned out. The free washcloth pattern is from Crochet Spot.
I took some random chenille I got at a yard sale and put it with some brighter purple I Love This Yarn to make an interesting cowl.
I gave the cowl to my mom, but it might be a bit too interesting for her. I figure it will at least keep her warm as she walks around the neighborhood this winter.
A couple of weeks ago I made some mitts for a friend at work. I used leftover red wool and double crochet ribbing to whip them out quickly. They’re pretty much just rectangles with a hole for the thumb.
My friend Christine has been crocheting up a storm and following her on Instagram has made me want to crochet more and more lately. I’ve recently crocheted a rug and a shawl, and have been doing some knitting that I’m pretty excited about as well. I’ve been sewing and thrifting too. Pretty much everything but blogging 🙂
With the incoming winter storm this weekend, it looks like more knitting is on the agenda! I’m really hoping these mittens I’ve been making turn out well. I love the yarn (Malabrigo green/blue) and the pattern too! I’ve posted a couple of pictures on Instagram and am really looking forward to the final reveal. I also just finished a simple scarf for a scarf and cookie exchange with friends. We’ll see if the weather permits us to actually hold it!
Well, I’m off to knit some more! Hope everyone’s enjoying their Christmas preparations!
