I have been super busy in the last few months crocheting and testing patterns. I am now finally getting caught up on the things I wanted to make for my kids.
What do you make with all your yarn ends? Well I would tie it on and roll it into a big ball... Decided to use it up when making my son's gift. A snake. It's still a work in progress as he decided he wanted a cobra which complicated things a bit... I am now working on the flat cobra head... Oh the fun :)
Another project I worked on was an owl purse. I've seen many different ones online... quite a few free. I loved this Wise Owl Tote Bag from Red Heart. It looked so lovely that I decided to make one. Here is how mine turned out.
And here are some boot cuffs that I tested. They too turned out great. Best thing is they fit both of my girls. Now that's definitely a bonus.
A friend from work had a birthday, in December and what better time to share my talents. I made her a hat, and she loved it. That's what makes it all worth while. I used the Little Miss Muffin pattern. It is a second hat I made with this pattern. The first one was for my daughter. They both turned out awesome.
And a little gift for me... I participated in a gift exchange with some of my fellow crochet ladies and got totally spoiled. I got lots of goodies... Eeek :)
And last but not least, two of the many patterns I have tested that I totally fell in love with. The Oopsy Loopsy hat by Boomer Beanies
Happy New Year Everyone :)
