I hope to be able to help friends and family learn to crochet. I would really like to start a crochet class, but this is my first step. Little by little, I suppose, many things can be accomplished.
Please stop by and check it out. Subscribe for future video updates. I truly hope to help (some"one") learn this beautiful skill. It is very rewarding in so many ways. I want to be able to share it.
Here are a few things I have been working on.
I have been having a blast making crochet dream-catchers.
I have also written a few patterns and listed them in my Etsy shop.
You can check them out here:
This is a very simple crochet cowl.
Bow and more bow. These are great for adding them to different accessories like headbands, hair-clips, or cute broaches. The pattern makes for different sizes.
My crochet poncho.
Another very simple Valentine's Day cowl and a really cute chunky pom-pom hat. The hat is also available in various sizes.
I have started something new. I have not put these on my Etsy yet....... CAKE TOPPERS! I think they are just adorable. I need to work a little more on these. Soon though, soon. :D
If you know anything about my crochet life, you know that I am a Bates hooker at heart. But I recently tried for a review of some ergonomic hooks that are Boye and I have to say I really liked them. I may be the cushiony foam that is at the base. It is suppose to help put less stress on your wrist. I don't know, but I was able to use them without any problem. I have never enjoyed Boye because they don't flow as well as Bates in my opinion. Buy I know there are many folks that swear by them.
What did I make with them you ask?
I still am a true Bates hooker though. I love my Bates hooks.
I also made a really cool banner with my shop name on it. I like it "A LOT". I absolutely love the colors and how it brightens up my work area. Yipee for me. :D I think banners are just so cute in rooms. Having your baby's name up on the wall with a beautiful colorful banner....AAAHHHHH....so adorable. But, that's just me. ;)
Well, that is all por ahora (for now).
May your yarn ball never run out. ;)
Adieu for now!!!!!
always in your life
in your heart.
