How to Train Your Dragon Party Idea's

Craftsy




This party was so fun to put together. It's the most detailed party I have hosted and believe it or not it was the most relaxing. I think it's because it was organised in advance.

I have put together posts about each part on my other blog. Click on the photo's below to be taken to the posts.

Enjoy :)

DIW#2 Mystery Scarf Blog Hop CAL





Hi everyone and welcome to part 6 of the Mystery Scarf CAL. I hope you are enjoying it so far.

You can find all the information about this CAL here. Including links to all the previous sections.


Pretty much a bunch of amazing designers have got together and each of us are putting forward 5 rows of the pattern. There is no specified gauge, yarn or hook size so hopefully we get some very different scarfs at the end.

Personally I picked this nice cotton yarn out of my stash and am using a 4.5 mm crochet hook. I absolutely love the way it is turning out so far. I was surprised at how soft and stretchy it is working up.

Now for my 5 rows:

Frilly Crochet Jandals (Newborn)

Online Crochet Class





Hi everyone, it's been a while since I have felt like crocheting anything. I originally had a plan to do up some old jandals (flip-flops, thongs, sandals, whatever you call them in your part of the world) but I couldn't end up finding them.

So instead I thought I would play around with some yarn and came up with these Frilly Jandals. These ones are newborn size but I am going to play around with making a few more sizes since they work up so fast.

To make these more practical I suggest adding elastic to the back through the loops or even some pretty ribbon. I don't think they would stay on very long without them.

VIDEO TUTORIAL:





Materials you will need are:
  • 4 ply/fingering weight yarn in two colours, I used pink and white. You can find a great selection here.
  • 3.00 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker (bobby pin)

Gauge: Because it would take just as long to work up a gauge swatch as it does to make the sole there is no gauge. Your finished sole should measure 3.5 inches in length. If your sole is to small go up a hook size. If it is to large go down a hook size.

Granny Square Crochet Along Revisited (Week Thirty Three)

Craftsy

Wow, this is the last of the squares for the CAL. Once again I apologize that I have not been around more. My mother is terminally ill and I have had to take a step back from crochet for a little while.

If you haven't started joining your squares yet check out this post for a great collection of ideas.



And once they are joined you will need to add some sort of border.....

Mini Crochet Hearts

Online Crochet Class




I have so many different idea's for these hearts. Use them as appliques, Join them with ch's horizontally to make a headband, add more hearts for a mini heart garland. Join them vertically to wear like a ribbon tied in your hair or curtain ties. You could even add hooks so you can wear them as earrings. There are many different uses for them.
