It is Read Across America week and today was dress up as your favorite Dr. Seuss character at school. My daughter chose the Cat in the Hat. I crocheted a hat and tail. It was great just to go into my stash and find the yarn. Made this project stress free and fun.

After running across a great deal on Webkinz, I decided to buy a few for Christmas gifts and to make it a special gift by crocheting a purse for each stuffed animal. After searching in vain for a pattern, I just winged it. I love using the thick yarn as these purses went way faster […]

Cool Weather Crochet

October 19, 2011

I expect my time spent crocheting will increase as cooler weather has finally arrived. With the cool weather, I feel more like cooking and baking and crochet – not necessarily all at the same time. But sometimes I can’t decide what to do since I want to do it all now. This week I want […]
