I didn’t get a chance to crochet either day.  I did attend the opening of the Marketplace at Vogue Knitting Live NYC on Friday, January 18th!!!  Met up with friends I haven’t seen in a while and had dinner.  Oh yeah, bought some yarn too! 🙂  And beads for Saturday’s class!  Details to follow with […]

I have been working on Doris Chan’s Snow Day Cowl yesterday and today.  I’ve finished one skein, of two, of Bijou Basin Ranch Lhasa Wilderness in the Cadet colorway.  I love the mobius construction and can keep crocheting until I run out of yarn.  I hope to finish tomorrow or Friday and block it to […]

I crocheted more of the leg of the first sock of 2013 while waiting for my son at  TKD.  When I got home I finished the cuff/band and sock number one is done! I wound my Bijou Basin Ranch Lhasa Wilderness in Cadet Blue to use for the  Doris Chan Snow Day Cowl.  I purchased […]

Today was our monthly HHCC meeting in the Danbury, CT library.  We learned how to crochet a double thick potholder.  I used another member’s potholder at our December Christmas/Holiday Party and fell in love with the texture and pattern.  I asked for a lessons and there came the lesson for our January meeting.  It was […]

Today I made a chemo cap for the HHCC (Happily Hooked on Crocheting Club in CT) for their February Hats from the Heart collection.  This is second one I made and hope to have a few more for the February meeting.  In the meanwhile I’ll bring the two I have done to the meeting tomorrow […]

Today I completed Ellen Gormley’s Saturday Beret CAL.  I LOVE my beret!  I went down a hook size to tighten the band up a bit and since the yarn is alpaca.  I probably could have gone down one more hook size, but I can always add a length of elastic thread if necessary.   I modeled […]

I continued working on my Saturday Beret completing the Third Ribbon on Wednesday and the Fourth Ribbon on Thursday, both while waiting at TKD for my son.  Here is where it stands: Now to do the band tomorrow and I’ll have my Saturday Beret for Saturday! I started thinking about my next project.  Since it […]

On Monday I started Ellen Gormley’s (GoCrochet Blog) Saturday Beret CAL from Brett Bara‘s new book Clever Crocheted Accessories. I am using Alsan Trends Royal Alpaca in a beautiful navy color that I purchased at Stitches East a few years ago.  I bought three skeins at the time.  One became a hat for my brother-in-law, […]

Today I made 10 squares for Karen Ratto-Whooley’s Stitch of the Month Afghan CAL.  At the end of the year, I should have enough squares to make a full size afghan.  I had the blue and pink yarn in my stash for years and years.. and years.  The blue is Red Heart Super Saver in […]

Today I finished the Sandy Hook All Shawl.  I crocheted till I ran out of the two skeins of Homespun then used the left overs from my mother’s prayer shawl to finish the row and do the one row edging in the pattern (Doris Chan’s All Shawl).  I hope to get pictures soon. While visiting […]
