I have really become very lax in blogging the past 6 months or so. I feel terrible about this. I really want to be a “blogger” but my life has been full. I am struggling with the decision on to stop my blog or not. I will continue to think on this as I do not want to make a hasty decision. Perhaps I will only blog monthly. I am looking forward to any feedback you may have for me.

I am so happy that this scarf is completed. I finished it yesterday in about an hour!

This is my first venture in using bulky yarn. I like the tweed look of this yarn and it is working up quickly. At a standstill as I need to get a tapestry needle. I am planning on doing this later today.

I am so proud of this finished scarf. I completed it while at the park this afternoon. My new phone does not let me upload photos to WordPress that is why there is a link to Instagram!!!!  Next up fingerless mittens in the same yarn!

I picked up this fabulous yarn earlier this week at Wal Mart. The colors caught my eye. I was immediately drawn to it. Upon arriving home I noticed that my project bag is composed of similar colors. This bag you may remember was made from the leftover Batik from the Car CD Holder I made for My Love.

So what to make…oooo how about those fingerless mittens. I thought that was a great idea until I realized I really wanted a scarf with these colors. Final decision was a scarf with matching mittens. I am truly enjoying crocheting!!!
Enjoy the beautiful weekend that is ahead of you!!!

I had decided to make a headband as my first project. Sounds easy enough right….well I discovered I was using the wrong size hook and misplaced the pattern. I tried on the headband to discover it was too wide for my liking. A co worker suggested a scarf. So that is how my headband because a scarf. This took 1 skein to complete. I LOVEĀ  it wonky parts and all!

I am still working on the headband I have been wanting to make. I have started and restarted numerous times. I am happier with the new yarn color I chose.

Today I looked at it and am beginning to think it is too wide for a headband. Wondering if I should just makes it into a scarf. So what do you think?

I couldn’t resist when I saw this! Totally using this for my first project…possibly starting it tonight. All depends on what time I get home from Girls Dinner!

So I came across a sample of Handy Hands Lizbeth Thread that I ordered awhile ago. So I figure why not practice with it. I am rather impressed with myself!!!
