A friendly vampire

Summer always gets pretty hectic for me. As soon as the weather gets nice there are so many fun outdoor things to do that my crafting slows down to almost a stop.

And then comes fall and Quiet Valley Farm's Harvest Festival ( I go every year and spend the long Columbus Day weekend surrounded by fellow crafters on an awe inspiring historical farm. I can think of no better way to start off the crafting season. :)

In the spirit of Halloween I decided to start with this spooky little vampire. He's quick to crochet and is a hit as my seasonal desk decoration at work.

The pattern is free from Lion Brand Yarn:

You'll have to register, but it's definitely worth it.

Happy Fall Crafting!

Well it's lambing season so of course I need to add to my herd! These little egg cozys were made from a pattern at the lion brand yarn website (I'll post the link later).

Sheep egg cozy

Sheep egg cozy, originally uploaded by beka4628.

This little sheep is actually crocheted around the egg (which was a new technique for me).

I couldn't get the bead eye to look quite right so i just left them off... but I think he looks just fine without it.

Pattern can be found at lion brand yarn:

Try and fail.....

On Saturday I was sick so I spent most of the day crocheting this bath poof. So on Saturday evening I go to take a shower (using my new poof of course) and realize how awful it really is!! It's like washing with a brick!

So it could just be the type of cotton i used, but I don't recommend crocheted cotton bath poofs. But yes, I'm still using it in hopes that it will get better with use....

I dare to dream. :)

Any suggestions?

Introducing my first ever original design!!!

I'm still perfecting it, but the basic idea is a cotton dish scrubbie on one side and a recycled plastic bag dish scrubbie on the other side.

I will be putting together a pattern in pdf form later once I get some of the kinks worked out.
