Coffee Shop Wrap

Felici Self Striping Yarn from Knit Picks

I started the Coffee Shop Wrap a week ago and finally found the time this morning to add the finishing touches, the tassels. As much as I would have loved to have worked on it over the weekend family and chores took first place. Since we finally had a nice day that meant getting out into the garden. Does this mean winter is over? As much as I would hope so (I dislike the cold) I still want time to wear my lovely new wrap.

Crochet Yoda Hat


It's not very often these days that I get to make custom orders for people. I've been so busy lately working on my Under The Sea Blanket but I decided to take a quick break last night to work on something different.

How awesome is this Yoda Hat?

My Favorite Hat Pattern

Online Crochet Class

When I taught myself to crochet I was determined to only use free patterns. Until I found this Shabby Chic Shell Hat pattern from BlueJCrochet I am pretty sure this was my first pattern purchase and I still love it.

I have been meaning to put together this tutorial for years now. That's not me exaggerating either. My first applique set was released in 2013.I now have 6 sets of 12 appliques and am currently working on the 7th. You can find them all here:

Temperature Afghan

So I have been noticing a lot of talk about the temperature afghans lately. Have you started one?

If you have no idea what I am talking about check out this post from the Crochet Crowd which explains how they work. And don't worry, no one is going to know you didn't start at the beginning of the year.

One idea a lady shared was to do 7 days of temperatures in one Granny Square. Each square would equal a week. I thought this was a really great way of doing it.

If you have been following me for awhile you might remember the Granny Square CAL. Some of these patterns will work great for the temperature afghan.
