Holiday Ornaments Ripple Afghan

I just came across another crochet design of mine that I had nearly forgotten about.  Here is my Holiday Ornaments Ripple Afghan that I designed for Herrschners using their 2-ply afghan yarn.  This was designed as part of their Ripple of the Month series and they are now making it available as a kit, probably just for a limited time.

 

Acadia Throw

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a design published (life has taken me in other directions), but I have a pattern in the February 2017 issue of Crochet World.  Check out my Acadia Throw.  The original design was made with Universal Yarn Uptown Worsted yarn. I actually really enjoyed working with this yarn.  You can check out the design on Ravelry, purchase the February 2017 issue of Crochet World wherever in your local craft store or online.

Gumball Machine Planter

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!
