I have a few projects to show in which I have found some satisfaction in creating. I follow the patterns but I may change some detail at another point. Here are some of my creations!
This is the pattern I found at Lion Brand Yarn website www.lionbrand.com. It's very easy and was fun to make. Here are my verisons of this set.
This hasn't been finished. I need to wash, block and add the buttons to the outfit. But I like how it turns out.
This is the blanket I am making to coordinate with the cardigan and bonnet. I do not like to make blocks when crocheting. The pattern while simple was not very appealing to me. So I decided to make a simple single crochet blanket to go with the outfit. The blanket at this point is about half completed. I may make it longer but who knows!
This is a blanket I designed myself. It's nothing special in the design department. I just did not feel like following a pattern. It's three rows single crochet and three rows double crochet all the way through. I then went around the edge with a row of single crochet then a row of half double crochet and then the last row was a single crochet row all in white. My Mom thinks I should have used another color for the edge. She felt something darker would have been nicer. I think I agree but its finished now!This is a scarf I made some years back. This was a really cool yarn. It was gold with a metallic gold thread running through. I loved it! I found this pattern in a crochet stitch book purchased at Wal Mart. It was easy and very quick! I should do this one again!
I like to just crochet when it hits me. I usually don't make things specifically for people. If I do they do not know its coming! I don't do requests! LOL! I have some perfectionist tendencies that really get in the way of my enjoyment of my hobbies. If I am expected to do something I get tense trying to make it so perfect I end up putting it away and not finishing it. So what I do is crochet whatever I want and put it away until I have an event (baby shower, birthday, housewarming, etc.) and I give it away as a gift.
Anyway I hope you enjoy some of my little projects! They were fun to make as well as to share with you!
