On the Hook

What has been on the crochet hook this week? Absolutely nothing! It makes me sad to realize that I haven’t crocheted anything in this past week. Just today I was thinking that I need to plan my Christmas crochet projects as some I have started and need to finish. So I might be working on…

Halloween Crochet

This year I have been working on Halloween goodies to give trick-or-treaters. Usually I make some small amigurumis to give out with candy, making around 20 items.

It’s wonderful to crochet for family. My daughter has challenged me several times to crochet her stuff. I love doing this as it not only keeps me on my toes but it is nice to make her something she absolutely loves. There’s no better reason to pick up the hook than putting a smile on…

Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas

Here is a little Zero amigurumi I did a while back. I didn’t have a pattern, and it was one of the first times I had used felt with one of my creations. I wanted the ‘ghost cape’ to be flowing and thought crocheting it would make it too heavy. The felt gave it more…
