After all the birthday shenanigans, I got the flu!!! Boohoohoo!!!! But that didn’t stop this party animal!!! LOLOLOL! Yeah right!!! Although I was floored by that pesky virus I’m back now!!! My baskets, overflowing with birthday yarn and fiber and just the coziness of the Fall days and evenings sent me back to my needles and hooks. My finger is much, much better and I was so excited to start crafting again.
This weekend past, I made a little “mat” to add to my Fall decor to put my candles on. And since this home-girl is crazy about handmade and crazy about Christmas, I broke out my 100 Crochet Snowflakes book and made two snowflakes as well. I think I’ll make a couple more for my little Charlie Brown tree. Because I’m a total New Yawker — with that kinda “go big or go home” style, I didn’t use fingering weight yarn for the snowflakes … nooooooooo, that would have been too easy! LOLOL! I celebrated my finger feeling better by crocheting with thread and a teeny tiny hook. Yeah … I’m a nut, but they are so cute though. Wanna see?
I think I need some extra starch on these puppies; I’ll take care of that tomorrow! I can’t wait to finish some other designs then hang them on my little tree. 🙂
The pattern for the the leaf is “Leafy Washcloth” by Megan Goodacre on Ravelry. I haven’t added notes to my projects folder yet but I made this in worsted weight heathered yarn (an old line from Knitpicks) and followed the pattern exactly as is. The next time around, I think I’m going to use beads somewhere in the design. I could see it in my head already! After I weave in the ends, I’ll show it again with some “model” shots. LOLOL!
I hope you’ve all been well and it’s nice to be back in this space. ❤
Let me know how you’ve been in the comments. How are you crafting your way through Fall?
