Latest make BOO

Simply Crochet had a pattern for this cute ghost. Couldn't resist it.

Have signed up for the Craft Yarn Council's crochet 2 certificate. Looks like I'll be learning some fun new techniques.

Still doing Nimblefingers' Facebook page and teaching their Friday afternoon workshop. Now I'm doing knitting as well as crochet.

Attended the Hearts and Hands event today. My friend bought my crochet cowl for her mother-in-law and I bought the knitted one which I'll give to my sister-in-law, both for Christmas presents.

Cowls for charity

It's been a while since I've posted but recently I've just completed a knitted cowl and crochet cowl for the Mission Stitchers who sell items at the annual Hearts and Hands holiday market using donated Glisten Kollage gray sparkly yarn. Patterns were Purl Ridge Scarf by Stephen West and Morticia Chevron Cowl by Erin Chastain-Harris. I'm pleased with both and wonder if they are a little too modern for the event.

Tinsy little post

Oh I know I said the blog is on hold but I just couldn't resist posting this chain link rope I made over the weekend away with family and friends in cabins on the edge of the Big Thicket State Park. The pattern is from Modern Crochet by Molla Mills. I just LOVE this book. Have made this functional rope on the request of the yarn store where I work and I can hardly bear to be parted from it!
