Inspirations #8: Pretty in Pink

I’m late. As some of you that follow me may have noticed, I have done several blog posts using a “national day” as a theme. Well, March 1st was National Pig Day and I missed it. The reason this is a big deal is that my mom loves pigs (Hi, Mom!)...

Mother's Day Flop

About a month ago I found a beautiful Ice yarn, Air Baby Alpaca. It’s a mix of alpaca, extrafine merino wool, viscose, and polyamide, and it’s so soft. It has been made into a chain, and since I’ve enjoyed working with other chained yarns, I...

My Latest Work #5: A Bad Case of the Doldrums

For whatever reason, I’ve been dealing with a rather long period of the “blahs”. It’s not often I get this way and usually after a couple weeks I snap out of it, but this time it’s lingering. This is how I felt by Christmas, and I ended up...

Sweet Little Snowflake - Free Pattern

Not too long ago I came across a post from Anabelia Craft Design offering a delightful Stars Garland (free pattern here). I tried her pattern and it came out wonderfully, but I was really looking for a dainty snowflake pattern. After playing a...

Nova55's New Patterns #3: It's About Time!

I’ve been a little sluggish with my crocheting lately (and my posts!). I needed to take some pics too, and of course “sunny” California decided to be grey and drizzly for the past few days. However – TA DA – I have a few new things to show you....
