I made this gumball machine planter after seeing some pictures of some online. I had to search all over to find what I needed. I bought the glass rose bowls at the Dollar Store. I couldn’t find red plant pots, so ended up buying plain ones and painting them myself. The ones I saw online actually used oval glass stones, but I thought marbles would look more like gumballs — I had to buy those online. And then, of course, I had to go to hunt down the hens and chicks. It was a wild goose chase, but I am very happy with the finished product!
I just received my copy of Crochet One-Skein Wonders for Babies. I have two designs in the book. You can see my Bottle Cozies design on the front cover and I have also have a baby blanket design included in the book.
The book is available for purchase on the Storey Publishing website and also on Amazon.
It’s been a while since I’ve made a new design. I’ve been knitting more than crocheting lately, so this design is a knit one. I’m pretty happy with how it came out. It’s a pretty simple infinity scarf made from DK-weight yarn. I’m a slow knitter, so it took me forever to get it done!
The pattern is available on Ravelry or Craftsy. I hope you like it!
I have a new design that is in the March issue of Happily Hooked Crochet Magazine, just released today!
The Rosebud Baby Blanket is a soft and sweet baby blanket with an easy pattern stitch that creates the appearance of tiny rose buds. You can visit the Happily Hooked website to purchase this issue. You can see some of the other designs included in the issue on Ravelry.
My latest design with DMC Top This! yarn is this bunny basket. I’ve been trying to come up with some different uses for the yarn than hats and snuggies. When I saw the ball with the Bunny, the idea just jumped out at me.
The pattern is available on Ravelry and Craftsy.
196I recently finished crocheting this Daisy Gertrude blanket, a Berroco design. You can get the pattern and see the original design at the Berroco yarn site HERE. This was a large project because it is made up of clusters of double trebles, uses a very lightweight yarn and a size D hook. I didn’t think I would ever finish it! I started it back in the fall, completing half of it, and then I took a break from it for a while. I started back on it in January when I was teaching a class for this project at my local yarn store and I finally finished it! 196 large motifs and 169 small motifs are join-as -you go!
I just created a new snuggy out of DMC Top This! yarn. I really like this yarn. Patterns work up really fast and the little animals are really cute!
The pattern is available on Ravelry or Craftsy.
