Stitchopedia Flower Loom Flowers tutorial from Jessie At Home

I recently found myself in possession of a Boye Flower Loom. I’d never used one before, but I’ve always been fond of the pretty little flowers they create, so I thought I’d give it a go. You know what? It was really easy and the results were spectacular! I have a few ideas of what to do with some of these lovely flowers already!!

The loom came with instructions on how to use it, but I know some of you are more visual learners, so I thought I would make a video tutorial for you. I actually have 2, one that shows how to make the flower in a single color, without cutting the yarn between the flower and the center, and one that shows how to make the flower in two colors (flower and center). I hope these help you create beautiful flowers for all your upcoming floral needs!! (more…)

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know I love Kreinik carry along threads. I have used them in many of my patterns, and plan on continuing to do so. The yardage on the cones is always plenty, the metallics are sparkly, the glow-in-the-darks glow bright and for a long time, the reflective really reflects well, they are all wonderful! And the color choices – SO MANY!!! They really bring your project up a notch. So, in honor of my love for these awesome carry along threads, I have put together a round up of patterns that use them, including several of mine and 2 knit patterns!
Kreinik is one of our awesome sponsors for Yarn and Wine 2016, so if you attend, you will get to play with some of these awesome carry alongs as well!!Kreinik Carry Along Thread pattern round up from Jessie At Home

Sometimes I get on kicks with my crochet, and currently I’m on a cable kick. I just love the texture and fun designs they create. There are several ways to make crochet cables, the most common of which is post stitch cables. Once you get the idea of how to make them down, they’re actually pretty easy! If you need a little help, here is a tutorial on crochet post stitch cables.

Now here is a collection of crochet patterns that feature cables which I have put together for you. Enjoy!!

Felted Floral Pin Cushion ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Felted Floral Pincushion
Free Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

In an attempt to stop leaving yarn needles in the arm of the couch, I decide to make some pincushions. This floral pincushion is crocheted with a feltable yarn, and then felted so it can be stuffed tight without the stuffing poking out.

I know I have been lax in sharing snaps and stories of the family lately. I haven’t even been sharing WiPs lately. I will get back to all that.

I have been working on find some organization in my life. I finally have found a way that works for me to keep on top of this crazy little blog. Slowly but surely I have been working towards that end. Somehow, the personal posts seemed to have gotten lost in the shuffle. Just as I was realizing how long it had been, this happened.

If I am recieving an award for best personal life posts on a crochet blog, maybe I should be sure to keep posting them, right? Not to mention my family may be a bit upset with me if I don’t share some stories of the twins, like, now.

So let me just tell you that a schedule is happening, and updates to the blog are happening as well. I would love for it all to be complete by the end of February. For now, the schedule is:

Monday: Crochet or Knit ALong (CAL, KAL)
Tuesday: alternating between a free knit pattern and a Stitchopedia post
Wednesday: evening round up
Thursday: free crochet pattern
Friday or Saturday (or Sunday…): one or two posts about the family and/or WiPs and such
Sunday: evening link blast

I reserve the right to lose my mind and change it all.

For now, here are nearly 40 photos of the last 6 or so weeks of 2014, and a little bit of text to tell you what they are all about.

Sometime Kyla needs to dress up.

I know I told you a little about our Thanksgiving trip in my last family post, but here are a few pictures I missed sharing. I taught the girls to crochet while we were there. They just learned the chain st, but they had fun with it. (more…)
