On my hook

In my World of Crochet.

Hooded scarf and odds and ends.

After working so much on the CRWs I wanted to do a quick project so I whipped up this hooded scarf from Crochet Today magazine. I love it but boy it gave me fits. I think I’ll make some more for Christmas gifts and they shouldn’t be so troubling next time.

Side veiw.


This is going to my best friend in Iowa. I still have to weave in the ends but otherwise it is finished. Next I need to try my hand at a tea cozy for her husband. 🙂

I’m trying to clear up a few other things before we start the Crochet Games during the Olympics on the ‘Ville.

The Crochet games is where you pick a project you want to do that is challanging to you and try to finish it from the start of the Olympics to the end of them. There will be some prizes and virtual medals for the crochet atheletes. I’m doing a filet with our wedding date and DD’s birthday on it.

I’ve got the squares ready to be assembled for another lapghan for the nursing home. The Charity blitz on the ‘Ville is making squares for me for the lapghans in August, so I will be very busy assembling them in the next few months. I hope to make a big delivery in the beginning of December for Christmas presents for as many of the residents as I can.

Color them DONE!!

Finally I have finished my Cathedral Rose Windows.

Yes, I did 2 of them at the same time and finished them 12 days apart and I want to do some more in other colors but I think I’ll wait. This is one pattern that amazes me that I’m not tired of after doing 2 of them.

I want to get better photos of them but they are so big that this will have to do till I can figure out a better way to get a photo from over head more.

CRW #1


CRW #2


And the 2 of them together in my front yard.


I’m really amazed how someone can come up with patterns like this! They are truely talented people.

Another Lapghan done!

I finished up another lapghan for the Nursing home so thought I better go ahead and post it in here. Hehehe

I used the Stunning Shells pattern in the “Best loved Afghans” book. That’s 2 patterns done from this book now. The next pattern is Soft Hearts for Baby and I’ll either do it in baby yarn for a Charity blitz project or give it to the nursing home for a lapghan. We’ll see once I pick out the yarn for it. 🙂


 The verigated makes it hard to see the pattern in it.  It has a lot of puff stitches for the shells.


I hope to be showing at least one finished Cathedral Rose Window this month. I’m so close to finishing the first one. Cross my fingers and knock on wood that I get one if not both done this month.
