I was able to finish on scarf for our state’s Special Olympics. I did stripes and was pleased at how it turned out.
It will be on its way later today. Not sure how many scarves my state has received but hope they reach their goal.
My daughter wanted me to make her a pink unicorn. She chose the pinkest yarn at the store. I didn’t use a pattern. Thinking about making another one since I always learn so much after I create a project.
While I was piecing it together, my daughter kept saying it looked like a pig. Well without the horn, ears, and mane it really does. The pink really makes it look like a pig. I’m thinking of making another one – maybe one in a more traditional unicorn color like white.
She is happy with it, so that makes me happy. Her next request is a peacock with a horn. Should be interesting.
This past week has been a rough one. Between vehicle issues and limited funds, I just haven’t been in a good mood. But I did whip up this little guy for part of a dirty Santa gift. I call him a pocket Cthulhu. He is about two inches tall. He was super fast to make – which gives me an idea of a small project for the craft fair in May. I’ve been wanting more small projects so that I have a lot of items to sell.
I love simple small projects that take less than 30 minutes. It really gives me a sense of accomplishment and a small crochet item that is super cute.
Making scarves for the Special Olympics is one project I look forward to each year. This year I am glad to see that you can send scarves directly to your state’s Special Olympics. You can either knit or crochet scarves. Use any pattern. Just make sure you use the right Red Heart colors. This year’s colors are Blue(886) and Turqua(512).
I hope to finish two by the deadline for our state’s games. One scarf I’m doing is stripes. Each strip is one row wider than the previous. It was my husband’s idea for a scarf he wants me to make him. So I’m trying it out on this scarf to make sure it looks OK. So far it looks really good. I have hope it will turn out well and I can send it.
Happy New Year!
This month I’m taking part in the Ultimate Blog Challenge. It’s a challenge to blog everyday. I did this in October with one of my other blogs and this month I want to do it with Crochet Mae. I want to post more and get this blog off the ground.
I mainly blog about what I’m crocheting or what I want to crochet. I’m also hoping to write a few patterns that will be available here. My goal in 2010 was to do more with this blog and that was a big fail. Now I have the same goal but will work harder to make it happen.
