Mug Cover

February 3rd, 2013

My friend, Sylvia, asked me to make her a coffee mug cover. She sent me a photo of a knitted one with an embroidered tea bag tag that read. “Chai tea.” Since she is a coffee drinker and ‘una Latina’, I decided to embroider “more coffee’ in Spanish. I love it!

Pattern: Mug Snug * Yarn: Patons Katrina * Size 7 Needles

Another baby shower gift completed! This is a crocheted baby cloche to fit 9-12 months. I have actually made this cute hat before, but made it using a lavender cotton. I am now working on a little a summer sweater to match using pink and white cotton. If only I had enough hours in the day!

Crocheted Daisy Braided Strap Booties

January 20th, 2013

I finished the booties in time for the baby shower. After I took these photos, I decided to sew a little white button in the middle of each flower. It looked much better. The pattern is very easy and super cute with the fastener loop that goes around the flower. Yes, she loved the booties! I have a few more baby gifts to make, stay tuned…

Project Collages

I just realized that I haven’t made a collage of my F.O. for the past several years! Gee, that proves that I’ve been too busy with life in general.

A Few Baby Gifts

January 6th, 2013

Lately I have been making baby shower gifts, and I have a few more to make! Is there a baby boom going on?! I have been pulling books, yarn and needles out for each of the projects, and my craft room is currently a mess! So, there were four baby gifts to make, and I have two down and two more to go. But first off, let me share a photo of the cute baby wearing the knitted set I made. He looks adorable in it.

Baby Gifts

The next gifts were for a “New Grandmothers” baby shower hosted by a co-worker. It was a very cute idea and I was told that one of the nursery color scheme was green and brown.

    I've been knitting & crocheting many years, and it is great to see the rise in popularity. Basically,the loves of my life include: knitting, crocheting, being with my family and giving thanks to God for how He's blessed my life, but not necessarily in that order!
