FO Friday: Phoenix Sunset

Years ago, I was in a job I didn’t love which required me to travel to Phoenix for a conference.  After a long, dreary day under artificial, hotel conference room lighting, I stepped outside just in time to see a stunning sunset. The beautiful browns, yellows, and oranges really lifted my spirit.  The colors were […]

This is the second project I finished since I challenged myself to finish a project every two days in December. I crocheted this hat last night.  It’s for a friend of mine who bought one of my crocheted hats at a craft fair a few years ago.  We went to Smiley’s to shop for this […]

I’ve mentioned the My Mountain Hat Design Contest, sponsored by Schachenmayr in their My Mountain yarns, on the blog a few times before.  I finished two crochet designs in the past week, but didn’t have a chance to take pictures of both of them until last night. Boston in Teal and Sage Green. This hat […]

Last week, I mentioned I was working on some designs for the My Mountain Hat Design contest using Schachenmayr‘s My Mountain line of yarns.  For my first submission, I used this skein of Bravo Big Color in Fire Print. As many of my readers know, I’m a super slow knitter, so I knew the super bulky […]

Some of my regular readers know that I love to participate in swaps.  There’s something fun about meeting a new fiber friend and who doesn’t love receiving a package in the mail? Right now, I’m participating in the International Scarf Swap‘s Wishlist Swap.  The main idea is to choose a scarf pattern from your partner’s Ravelry favorites and […]

Way back in February, I learned my cousin had a newborn daughter via Facebook.  Her name is Brooklyn. (Yes, like me, my cousin was born in Brooklyn, but he hasn’t lived there for about 20 years). I decided to make her a baby blanket using some stash yarn.  I started with the motif from Frankie […]

I’ve been keeping today’s finished object secret since September, so I’m really excited to finally share it.  It’s a pineapple shawl I crocheted for the Spring, 2013 issue of Crochetvolution. I crocheted this shawl with Inca Eco, a super soft, organic cotton yarn.  It’s a worsted weight, thick and thin yarn. I picked this yarn […]

I’ve recently been joining a lot of -alongs.  Crochet Happy hosted a CAL in January for Suzana Davidovic‘s Calm Cowl.  (Now you try to say Calm Cowl CAL five times fast…) The CAL was sponsored by Galler Yarns and held in the Galler Yarns Ravelry group. I’m not eligible for the awesome prizes since I […]
