~ 3 little critters ~

Here's three little critters that I've crocheted recently.
This cute unicorn I made for Sami.  She didn't like it at first, but quickly warmed up to it.

The pattern is a paid pattern from One & Two Company on Etsy.

This is Novi.  I crocheted her from a pattern by Repeat Crafter Me.  It's called 'Caron Sprinkle Cakes Crochet Birthday Bear' and it's crocheted with one cake of the sprinkle cakes in the colorway 'Birthday Cake'.

I named her Novi because my birthday is in November.

This last little critter I crocheted with two strands of worsted weight acrylic - one strand yellow and one strand grey.  I didn't follow a pattern for this one.

She was the easiest to crochet because she is all one piece - no arms or legs to fiddle around with.

Have a great day ladies - I'll see you next time.  :)

~ 3 projects ~

I don't seem to be very good at this blogging thing anymore.  I don't know - I just can't seem to find the time to get on the computer and write things out.  These pictures have been uploaded for a little while now - I just needed to add the words.

The baby blanket is crocheted from Bernat Blanket yarn.  It is so soft and squishy, but it is a little heavy so I'm not sure if it will be ok to put on a baby.  My husband said that it will be like a comforting hug.  If you think about it, he may be right.
A friend on Instagram also mentioned that it could be a good baby mat to lay on the floor for baby.  That's a good idea.

Sami is modeling a hat I crocheted with Red Heart Super Saver in 'Americana'.  I like the way it striped on this one.

I changed two of the colors in my craft room recently.  Instead of pink, yellow and brown, it is now pink, aqua and white.
Jar lids were painted, the little dingleberry garland was changed, doilies were replaced, and so on.
A very small project was this candle cozy.  A very quick and easy project.
Here is a video that 'kind of' explains how I crocheted it.

I'll see you next time - have a great day.  :)

~ scrappy scarf completed ~

Here's my completed scrappy scarf.  Just crocheted with plain rows of hdc.
Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.
You'd think that it would get boring, but all the different colors made it a little fun to crochet.
I enjoyed working on it.

Have a great day.  :)

~ granny square baby blanket ~

Finished up this 2-strand granny square baby blanket a couple of nights ago.
I crocheted it with 1 strand of Lion Brand Mandala yarn in the colorway 'unicorn' and 1 strand of Studio Classic by Nicole in 'gentle white'.
The pattern is 3 rounds of basic granny square and then 1 round of (dc, ch 1, skip a stitch).
In the last round I wove a ribbon through the stitches and then tied it into a bow.
This blanket will be added to the guardian grandmas donation pile.

See you next time.  :)

~ a scrappy scarf ~

I've started a scrappy scarf using scrap 4-ply worsted weight yarns.

I've been watching Kendra from 'Hooked by Happenstance' on YouTube
make scrap yarn strips for a blanket and was inspired.
I don't want to commit to a blanket, so I decided to crochet a scarf.

It might be for me or it might be another Christmas gift.  I'm not quite sure yet.
I'll be sure to let ya'll know.  :)
