Handwarmer

A co-worker asked me a few months ago if I could make handwarmers that look like cut of gloves…it looked at a few different patterns. ..

And after making the two cuff made from one pattern. . I decided to do it my own way..

This was the first finished warmer (above)
Hopefully this is what she was thinking.

Keep on creating …thank you for reading!

This is made with RedHeart parrot boutique yarn…I love the color…I am creating as I go..the stitch I call a lazy bobble..because I am pretty sure it is not quite a bobble…lol I have almost used 1 ball of yarn..I am planning on doing 2 !!
What do you think?  Would love to hear some comments on it : -)

The Minions are coming

Ok , so my house is big fans of the Minions ( who not right!)

So on day while looking on Interest (my other addiction ) I started seeing crochet minions ….mmmm I thought to myself !

After some looking around I found a few I liked…my kids urged me to go get me some yarn at Jo-anns .. “I deserved it ” they said ..lol

With that I could say no 😉

They helped me pick out the colors I need …and I found so marked down yarn too!!! Yeah me !!

My dh believes my blue is off ..but I am having a hard time finding a Jean color blue..so it might have to make a few with the different blues to see .lol

This is a navy blue..looks black in the photo..

But I think I am going to finish him with it …then just make another one with the lighter color blue  I found in my stash of yarn 😉

I will post an update later when I finish this one…and more photos if I get my minion army together !!

Follow me for more updates. 🙂

Here are the finished minions..I made these for my babysitter to give to her kids for Christmas…There mostly will be more after Christmas. ..I will post pics when done: )

Plarn

One day while I was surfing the my different boards on pintrest..I got and idea to look for different projects,to just pop top and plastic shopping bag…I created new boards for both.. this is where I learned that have a name for plastic bag yarn PLARN !

So I was on a mission to learn more about this plarn…how to make it into yarn ..how to use it ..everything !! 

I went to YouTube to learn how  to make it into yarn..(my dh thought I lost my mind lol) I then went back to Pintrest to find a project and get to inspiration!!

This weekend on your way to my parents place UpNorth I tried out one I found and make not two kids a bracket with pop top and the plarn..they turned out good and the kids loved them..but I wanted to see what else I could make with it .

image

This is what I made..I used a “c” hook and hdc and i think it came out pretty good !!

What do you think ? Have you worked with plarn ? I would love to hear from other crochet nuts/crafters/knitter about that you alphabet tried !!

I love the things of India ..the color ,the cloths,the people !

When on FB I found Darn Good Yarn http://darngoodyarn.com. they sell yarn that is made from recycled sari ,banana fiber,and much more.. you should check it out that have an awesome story !!

I have made a few little things but I wanted to make something that was more India !

So I had some brass ring I found a Jo-Ann’s in the embroidery section .. looking through my stuff one day the light bulb went on!!!

I love how they turned out . One I just wrapped the sari silk around the thin one , the other two I crocheted a chain then wrapped around tight .

What do you think ? Did I do a go job representing India and the people I love ?

Please share 🙂

Curly Q Crazy

Have you ever got started on something just to have something to crochet ? Well Wednesday I had to take my oldest to a dr. appointment and my tote bag project was just a little big to take along. So I just started something new !! I didn’t know what yet..I grab some white cotton yarn and a hook E  I believe and started hoooking…I got a row done …and thought what is this going to be ? LIGHT BULB !! Curly Q’s they are fast and  simple enough to do .

So I get home and I have 5 or 6 done….what to do with them now ? Then the Ideas started popping in my head … Hair Accessories !!! Hat Topper !!  jewelry !!

OK , so now I have Ideas now let see what I come up with 🙂

Well I am glad to say that I have spread my Craziness to my DD she asked me to teach her how to make the Curly Q’s after she seen a ponytail holder I made ..Now we are both Hooked !! lol    She is new to crochet but learns very quick . She is making cloths for her Barbie dolls..Just like I use to do after I started learning. I would just make it up as I went along tell it turned out the way I wanted 🙂
