The Crochet Virus

Last month I contracted the crochet virus. Sigh. It has been getting in the way of my knitting and aside from the Harry Potter Heliopath KAL I’m co-hosting, I haven’t touched my knitting needles in three weeks! (GASP) Anyways, here are a few pictures of the crochet things I’ve been working on. Overall, I think crochet is just so easy. I don’t wanna discredit it as a craft because I’m not into craft shame-ing, but it’s just mindless for me. Single, Double, Triple crochet is like the best/easiest way to make something so pretty and as long as you’re in the groove it’s way hard to mess up like knitting. PLUS my knitting projects have become quite complex in terms of patterning, so crochet in the round has been the jimmy jam for me lately too.

Finish Chevron Meh Cowl – Sewing Projects On Deck

Image

Another craft update!  I finished the Chevron Pop Cowl.  I’m not sure if it’s the colors or what, but I feel ‘meh’ about it.  I wish the yarn was a little more structured as well, so I’ll try that with the next one I make because I loved the pattern it was so simple and fun to knit.  I’m wearing it today to work.  I would say that would tell me what people thought, but my co-workers are not really observant about this kind of thing.

Last night after I finished the Chevron Cowl, I took Mister Lee out and saw that I had several goodies arrive!  First, I got a Starbucks Gold Card – which is long overdue, but I only started registering my gift cards a few months ago! (D’oh!) Second, I received a BUNCH of patterns I ordered on Thursday from McCall’s because they had a $2.99 pattern sale last week.  (I HAD TO HAVE THEM!)  Third, I ordered the most adorable ‘cut and sew’ witch named Winnie from Ebay.  I’m excited to put her together – I love little cut and sew panels they are my favorite – check out a bunch here on Etsy.  I laid all the flare out to get a picture and of course my Baby Boris got right in the shot – how cute! He’s like “MOM! I’m new and fun too!” I have noticed I’ve had to spend extra time loving on each of them, because they let me know when I’ve been crafting ‘too much’ for them.

I have a few other small sewing projects I’m going to do this week that I am excited for.  I need a few hours away from knitting just to re-charge.  I still need to finish the sock portion of my baby moc-soc set that I have in progress. I just needed to step away from that little project though.  It’s really small and I kept dropping 1 tiny stitch over and over and over.  I hate when that happens!

Anyways – what are you all working on?  Any holiday/season inspired crafts?
