Happy Halloween!

One of my favorite holidays is Halloween.  I was recently involved in a Halloween swap on Ravelry and couldn't share this until after my swap partner received what I had made for her.  
I frequent the Lily Sugar'n Cream website for patterns, since I love to crochet quick and easy projects for swaps.  I found these awesome patterns on the website and made them for my swap partner...

Bat Dishcloth by Lily / Sugar'n Cream

Ghost Dishcloth by Lily / Sugar'n Cream

Skull Trick or Treat Bag by Lily / Sugar'n Cream
I filled the Skull Treat Bag full of goodies and sent it overseas to my swap partner in Somerset, England. 
I chose not to put eyes and mouth on the bat as indicated in the original pattern.  I just didn't care for them, and figured they'd be problematic if using the bat as a dishcloth anyways.

Bright Stripes Cowl

I crocheted this cowl using puff stitch, the thickness of the stitch gave the cowl a lot of body. The yarns are all cotton and really soft. If anyone has any favorite patterns that use puff stitch, I'd love to hear about them --- I'm totally addicted to it!

We are a happy family...

My 1st Anniversary Give Away

Hi All,
I hope you don't mind me mentioning my 1st give away which is an e book PDF format  with instructions for Irish Crochet projects. I thought it would be appropriate to call by and mention it in on For the Love of Crochet Along.  Please follow the above link (Which I hope will work as I haven't done this before) Happy crocheting

Red & Mint

I was trying to come up with an idea for using red & mint colored yarns in a project and came up with these hot pads... the strawberry was a must!

puff stitch

I've been totally obsessed with crocheting in puff stitch lately! I found this great tutorial for making little modular flowers with it!

They are perfect for coasters & trivets, but I think they'd work well for a variety of projects.

My niece is having twins in December. So I have been making baby afghans. I got one done and am about half way through the second one. I found this fast and easy pattern over at

Are we still on?

Just a quick note from a worried administrator... are we still visible? Have I turned something off, can people still post, send comments???? Just kind of weird for me not to get an email telling me if someones posted or left a comment after 2 weeks. Maybe I have offended????

is there anyone out there????????????

An Oldie!

I was looking through some old photos and came across some photos of a neck warmer I made a few years ago. I must of been planing to blog about it but never did. I can't remember where I got the pattern for it but it is so nice at toasty warm. I made it in Berlin to help with the freezing winter. I found I could never quite warm my chest area even when wearing coats, this helped! It has this ribbed look by crocheting a row of sc and then dc and tr in the back loops. People at work thought it was knitted!
