Chunky Circle Scarf.

So this is another repost from that long forgotten blog I had once upon a time. But just looking back at it, I get to remember things I have made. Turns out some of my favourite projects I have given away to friends and family. Maybe its because when I am planning a project for someone else, I will choose out the nicer yarns. However if I make something for myself I usually just use what I have at home. Because I do have quite a stash building up.

Crochet Mittens.

I know that its almost August. I know that its hot outside and most other people are out at the beach, or on vacation or doing other summery things. But I'm the kind of person who is constantly counting down to Christmas and daydreaming of snowflakes.

I made these mittens for a friend in January. I used Homespun yarn in black for these. Sorry, I don't remember the hook size, but I think I used one so it would be a little tight, to fight the blistering winter winds.

They make awesome Christmas gifts!

For these mittens, I used the same pattern, but made them bright with are stripes and polka-dots. I used colour A (blue)  up to about the first thumb knuckle, and then switched to orange. Every other row, I took the opposite colour that I was using and brought in back and forth between stitches.

Intro.

I had started a blog a while ago, but time passed and I changed and grew. Eventually I forgot the password to it. But now, I feel like I want to give this a second chance.

So here goes! This is a place for crochet inspiration. For me to come with questions, because I often get myself over my head with projects. I like trying out new patterns, I like coming up with new patterns, and I like sharing with other people.

So stop by and take a look around. Enjoy! :)
