It has been a long time

Not much crochet to report since May. I am about to start picking it up again. I want to start raising some money for Cancer Research by selling some items on eBay Giving Works: some nice Ribbon based Afghans and such. I did make a witch hat for Halloween. That was really great. I was really impressed at how it turned out. I’m also thinking about attending my first craft fair to sell some of my items. The Wild Chicken Festival in Fitzgerald, GA is the one I chose. I’ve been interested in participating in something like that for awhile but just hadn’t gotten the lead out. I think would be a great New Year’s Resolution. What do you think?

Well, I mentioned the Granny Square throw/afghan that I was working on. I found it on the Red Heart website. It is called “Square Upon Square Throw” and designed by Katherine Eng. I have really enjoyed working on the design. This particular pattern allows for me to work on occasionally and to keep up with the flow. Much easier than keeping up with a ever changing pattern. I will eventually restart the project that I unraveled, but it will just have to wait.

Unraveling :O(

I had to unravel one of my afghans I’ve been working on for a long time. :O( I created a pattern, it is a solid pattern, I just read it really badly. Plus the yarn I purchased did all come the same color batch so I had shade issues. SO I moved on to a granny square afghan. This is my first granny square pattern. I’m really excited because it isn’t like you create all the granny squares then you weave them together. You actually weave them together as you create the granny square. It is very interesting. I cannot wait to show pictures soon.

Getting back in the swing of things.

Well I have putting some of my crochet items up on Etsy. I've been finishing up some projects that I have put on the back burner since this past Fall. We moved over the holidays. Life has been getting in my way to crocheting. Just moving all my stuff has been incredible. I have yarn everywhere. I'm still trying to find an appropriate place for them to be. Hopefully this weekend I will be successful in my goal.

I hope you enjoy visiting my site. I'll be posting up and coming events, goings on, and other little tidbits about myself.
