Faerie Wings free crochet tutorial by Jessie At Home

All righty friends, this is just a loose tutorial, not really a pattern. You kind of have to “wing it” ~ hee hee!

You will need:
2 wire coat hangers of equal size and shape
masking tape
5 yards plastic boning (some stores only sell this covered in white or black fabric)
about a foot of craft wire, 20 gauge or thicker
Sample was made with Bernat Softee Baby yarn in Garden Ombre

So much to do, so little time

Honestly, since I left the theater, I don’t think I’ve understood this phrase as much as I do right now. Somehow I have forgotten how many hours there are in a day and have just taken on a bit too much. I guess that is the downfall of finally having a handle on my MDD for the first time in quite a few years. Guess I will have to learn about restraint again. ;^) So much to do!

As you’ve seen here, I have the Granny Sampler Blanket to finish up. I am only a few days ahead of the posts, and I just had to frog a bit, as I made a rather large oops on the boarder. I hope to be done with the blanket and pre~writing the rest of the posts for it by the end of the weekend.

On top of the WiPs I had already going on, a few weeks ago my sister~in~law called to say there would be a baby show for our niece on the 9th (last weekend). That’s right, do the math, I’m going to be a great aunt. Our niece’s mother is Doug’s older sister from his father’s first marriage, so I don’t feel quite as old, but it is still a bit of an odd feeling. Then again, I have an uncle who is 5 months younger then me, so I guess I should just chill a bit. (more…)

I’ve been been up to a lot o’ knitting and crocheting and other fun stuff lately. Here is a bit of everything, just a random selection of my life right now.

The first I would like to let you know about is that I am all set for our Granny Afghan CAL (CrochetALong) that starts on Monday. Here is a peek at the yarns I will be using. I think these two squares will become a pillow when all is said and done.

I have finally finish my two latest crochet patterns. These are both inspired by a very cool old potholder pattern you can find here.

Bloom Hat ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Intermediate Skill Crotchet Pattern

This hat was inspired by an old potholder pattern that can be found here.

This is a slightly loose fitting hat with a tie string that tightens it to fit. It creates an adorable flower look. Make it from all one color, or change colors for each row of petals. The sample was made with Bernat Softee Baby yarn in various colors and a 3.5mm hook.

Much craziness since we last talked. Let’s see here, how about a basic run down?

Gift-for-Pennsic-friends

First, Doug went off to Pennsic XL (that’s 40, not extra large). It was quite surreal to know that he was there, while I wasn’t; even more so each evening when he would call. However, considering everything we had planned with my Mother’s side of the family in the upcoming week, there was no sane or financially intelligent way for the rest of us to join him. (more…)

Just dropping in to give you a quick peek at what I’ve been up to as of late.

fixed-my-arm-warmers

I made these arm warmers many moons ago, but they kept slipping down. The top ribbing was only about 1/2″, just not long enough. So I undid the top 4″ of knitting, and redid it all in a k2 p2 rib. Much better, not more slipping. I have a feeling they will get much more use this fall and winter now that they stay up! (more…)
