Crocheting a Tam/Beret

I'm crocheting a hat and making a video tutorial at the same time. I don't really have a good set up to make videos nor do I have the face for it but I'm plowing ahead anyway. I love the colors and the way it is coming out.

Designing a Vest

A vest made of circles. I just started it today.


I just finished a black and white crocheted potholder that someone else started. It feels good to finish something.

Repurposing yarn

Today I was untangling some black and white yarn and found it was hooked to a project. It was a potholder in a pattern I learned to make as a child. It must have come from my boyfriend's grandmother's house. So it seems not only did I learn that pattern growing up in my family, but his family used the same pattern. So I'm finishing up the half finished potholder. I think there will be just enough yarn to finish it. I can tell by the label the yarn is probably 20 years old. Not that it seems to matter with acrylic. It seems a little stiff but I'm sure it will wash up just fine once I'm done. It feels good saving an old project from the trash pile. Granted, most crochet patterns aren't that easy to jump in at the middle and finish them right. There are some afghans in there I seriously doubt I will be able to finish. But I can add any pieces to freeform crochet items like vests, coats or purses. Nothing will go to waste that way.

Want to join too? Go to the code 'legendofping' and you could have the luxury of posting to all your blogs in one fell swoop like I do. Way more efficient than doing it one by one.
I'm not sure what 'ping my default' means but I guess I'll find out when I hit send.

The week sure went by quick. I had a lot more planned but didn't have the energy to do it. My hands are still sore from woodcarving, and so I've had to lay off the knitting and crocheting. I'm looking forward to the weekend. My daughter may visit. We'll see.

Pirate stitch

I'm going to call this Pirate Stitch because the stitch is YO YO YO pull through. In crochet YO stands for Yarn Over. This piece will go on my freeform vest probably.

Trio of Crocheted Bells

I designed these today and I really like the way they came out. I need to make more to add to hats, gifts, or to hang anywhere that needs a spot of color.

Red Crochet Star

It took me 3 tries to figure out this star, but it was very satisfying to finally get it right.

Amigurumi Panda

First my boyfriend couldn't figure out why I made a blue panda, then he told me I should make more unusual things.
One of my original designs.


I sold this crocheted platypus instantly. It's my own design. There is no written pattern.
