100% Cotton Love!

I love these cotton thread colours.
I plan to make wash cloths for my sisters for Christmas,
coupled with a homemade bar of lavender soap.
Only four months away!!!

Adorable crocheted Dachshund I found on Pinterest.
I'm not sure of it's origin though.

Day Two of Tunisian Crochet Lessons

So fare I've managed to keep up with the video lesson...

The first five rows of the wash cloth project are complete!

So far I've learned Tunisian Simple Stitch and knit stitch.

Can you see the difference between the two stitches?

My hands are tired.
Time for a break!

First Attempt

Ok, this is my very first attempt at Tunisian Crochet...

I'm using Lily Sugar'nCream 100% Cotton Hot Orange.
It's a little stiff but I'm making a wash cloth.

Hook size (afghan hook or tunisian hook) name is interchangeable.

Ok, I needed video instruction too...

Yay for Craftsy!
I found this class for 25% off too!

Let the learning begin!

New Challenge...

I've always liked this look
but never really knew what it was called...

This will be a new challenge for me to learn!

I learn better by watching.
I wonder if there are any videos/tutorials for
learning how to tunisian crochet?

Crochet and Knit Neon Combined!

I really like this combination!

Neon will definitely show up on the ski slops!

Now only if the weather would hurry up
and get colder!

Knit Neon Project

Decided to make a neon green knitted...?

I'm not sure what this will turn into.

I'm thinking maybe a scarf.

I really love how this drapes too!

Crochet Neon Project

A quick and easy crochet project.
Took me less than 40 minutes to wip up this
crocheted head band.
I used two different size hooks.
I started with J hook
and switched to N hook.
Then finished with J hook again.

New Camouflage Crocheted Beanie

I'm using the very same pattern
for the blue crocheted beanie
but this time I'm
using heavier weight yarn
and larger crochet hook
to make a camouflage beanie
for my grandson...

I'm also making one for his Daddy.
I start the very same way,
as the blue beanie pattern
But increase a few extra rows
as per the measurements
of his head.

I have started to notice
that I'm creating allot of swatches again.
I think it might be time to create a wee bit
of public art
