Back to Crochet

It's been a while since I posted...

After Christmas I put away all my crochet stuff.  I ignored the yarn sales (I have bins full) and got myself and the house ready for our new puppy.

When my sisters came to visit, at the end of April, I hauled out all my stuff and let them pick out a few things.

While I had it all out I did a purge of my yarn and then put together a few balls for projects.  It still left me with a lot of yarn and in search of a project.

I found this easy baby sweater pattern - adapted it for the way I crochet - and made these fun little cardigans.

These are all going to my mother-in-laws charity project.  I have enough yarn to make 12!!

I'm happy because it keeps me busy and it's using up my leftover yarn.

In the fall I'm hoping to find another project as well as post all of my crochet stock on my Square Store.

Crochet Quick Sand

When I'm getting ready for a craft market my house is a total disaster.  

I am focused on getting all my crochet finished and my table set up right - never mind laundry, cleaning and other non-crochet related errands and chores.

At this time of year, my house looks like a yarn factory exploded!

Today I feel like I'm sinking in crochet quick sand!!

What are you doing next Weekend?

Hey!  What are you doing next weekend?

I'll be at the Portobello West Fashion and Art Market at the Creekside Community Centre both Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29 from 11-5.

Drop by and say HI!

This weekend I'm working on a mock set up of my market table (in my dining room) and taking inventory of ALL my crochet.

Here is a pic of my FINGERLESS GLOVES mid inventory.

I make these more like wrist cuffs with a thumb hole.  They are approx. 6 inches long and one size fits all.

I LOVE to arrange them by colour.  Don't they look so pretty?

These fingerless gloves are perfect for when it's cold outside and you "need" to text or use your smart phone!

They are also great if you or someone you know has arthritis in their wrists and hands - keeps them nice and warm but their fingers free to do stuff around the house.

I like to wear mine while I'm working on the computer late at night.  So cozy!

What a thoughtful gift - hint hint!

I'll try and post more sneak peeks of what I'll be bringing to the craft markets this year. 

Stay tuned!!
