Quick & Easy Throws

As I make gifts, I usually write my own patterns.  These throws were made for gifts for student workers and for one of my daughters. All four of these I crocheted in under 12 hours.  They work up quickly because you use a large hook and the yarn is so thick.  More than that, they are … Continue reading Quick & Easy Throws

Publishing Crochet Patterns

My day yesterday did not go as planned.  This is not a surprise to me - rarely do my days go as planned.  But last night I was kicking myself for taking a nap instead of getting things done.  Vicki went to bed early and I opted to work on the computer. This meant the … Continue reading Publishing Crochet Patterns

Projects – Done and To Do

This week I've finished the scarves and the afghan for my student workers' graduation gifts.  I've given one gift which is why I'm posting the two pictures.  For the afghan, I need to take pictures.  I plan to publish four of the scarf patterns and the afghan pattern.  This adds to my list of crochet … Continue reading Projects – Done and To Do

Family Celebrations and Finished Projects

It's done!  I finally finished the big blanket for my youngest daughter.  It took a lot of work and time but her Packer emblem corner to corner graph afghan is done.  In the picture on the left it is laying on top of my king size bed and a few inches hang over on the … Continue reading Family Celebrations and Finished Projects

Progress!

Seven crochet patterns have been published!  I'm thrilled to have finally had time to get them out.  These have been on my todo list for quite some time. I was off work yesterday and was going to do it then but I've got upper respiratory crud on top of my gout flaring.  I slept most … Continue reading Progress!

Back to Crocheting (hopefully)

I've not crocheted since Saturday.  I'm antsy to finish my project but my arm has been bad.  I woke up Sunday unable to move it without pain.  My hand was swollen and I couldn't close it.  I spent the day reading a book with a heating pad on my arm. At this point I am … Continue reading Back to Crocheting (hopefully)

Crochet Arm

In an effort to have an afghan done before we go visit our daughters, I've been putting in a lot of hours crocheting.  Probably more than I normally do.  Yesterday, I noticed that when I tried to straighten my right arm, it hurt.  I have aches and pains all the time, so I didn't think … Continue reading Crochet Arm

Mother’s Day

It's mother's day and all my kids are out of state.  I'm okay with that.  For one thing, they were home last weekend. Yesterday Ken and I went to a yarn shop Vicki discovered.  It was an interesting experience in that I was lucky to be able to get in the store.  There was a … Continue reading Mother’s Day

Yes, I do more than just crochet… sometimes….

Yesterday sucked for pain but today is better fortunately.  I can at least close my hands today.  I've created a new pattern for a dish towel I like.  I have also found a basket pattern I really like.  Now all I have to do is have my hands able to crochet.  Friday I go see … Continue reading Yes, I do more than just crochet… sometimes….
