I am working on new patterns and revamping the blog. The current plan is every other Friday, post a pattern for testing purposes. I'll leave it up for two weeks, please send me comments letting me know if you found any errors. Then after two weeks, it will be taken down and a new pattern… Continue reading Revamping the Site
It is not my pattern but the wonderful glitzy fairy was inspired by Kevin (the bacon scarf) and decided there needed to be a whole breakfast themed set of accessories. She added a fried egg hat and a croissant pin. Follow the link to have your own breakfast party.
It's my birthday and my husband ordered me these lovelies. I'm so excited to make a shawl or a scarf or anything out of it. As a treat to my loyal blog followers, take $1.00 off your pattern in my Etsy store if you use the coupon code WENDYDAY. The code expires on Friday.
I haven't disappeared, I just decided to make a sweater for myself. I'm a slower at knitting than I am at crochet, but I found a shrug jacket pattern by Debbie Bliss and thought it looked really cute and comfortable. It's called the Moss Stitch Shrug Jacket and it is available in Issue #10 of the magazine. I… Continue reading The never-ending sweater project
Sometimes things don't turn out how you initially plan. This was just supposed to be Topsy. However, he was sitting upside-down waiting for me to decide on his arms, and my daughter was intrigued by the fluffy bottom asking if it was a skirt or an octopus. Working with my husband, I developed a little… Continue reading Topsy Turvy

This… Continue reading Striped Skull Baby Beanie

These are hockey skate baby booties and they are super adorable. I know hockey skates are usually black, but these are to go with… Continue reading Recently completed projects and a quick primer on gauge
This hat goes along with the Viking helmet that I finished a couple of weeks ago. I had a custom order for both of them. I got the pattern from Martina Gardner's pattern store on Craftsy. I want to make sure I give credit to other designers and support them. Right now I'm working on… Continue reading Knight Helmet
So the wedding is over. It was so much fun. I am very happy and glad that all the planning went well. Here's my new family. No I can get back to crocheting in full force. Last night I wasn't really in the mood to come up with my own creatures, but I found this… Continue reading Wedding is over
I am getting married in three weeks (I'm getting nervous). I haven't been able to crochet for the blog as I have been making all the corsages and boutonnieres for the guest as well as the cake, etc. I am also making afghans for all my bridesmaids. Needless to say, I have been busy. I… Continue reading Little Crocheted Cuteness
