CAL coming soon!

I decided not to do the teaching crochet Crochet Corner , Instead I will be having a month long CAL (Crochet A Long ) and teach any stitches I need to. I have so many hat orders and personal items I have to get done, the CAL seems like a better idea.

YOP4: week 12

3 months and nothing is finished.. :(  but the Sugar Skull garland is almost finished! 
sugar skulls 2
I started on the skull cap. You can see 2 skulls but I think I am a stitch off because the second skull looks a bit off center, so I will probably start over.

Also to be able to make my Totoro pillow I have to learn how to Tunisian crochet . So last week I bought a long hook and I tried it out last night.. I have to say, its quite fun! :)

YOP: week 11

We are almost at the 3 month mark. I have purchased so many patterns over the past year . about 60. too many good deals from my favorite designers. So I really need to do something with them.. I have two I need to finish but most patterns I have to start .. here is my list for the first batch.

Scarecrow basket
Frankie's Bride
Skull cap
Football lovey
Olaf hat

Breast Cancer Awareness bag- add handle
TMNT hat- add eyes

most are a Snappy Tots pattern . I am glad I was able to contribute to her daughters wedding..lol

As you can see there are no Mario Blanket updates.... I am taking a break from that. I don't want to hate it before its done. Plus I need to buy more blue yarn. I think 1 skein will be enough.

This is my project for the week. I'm into skulls this year.. not sure why. These Sugar Skulls will be a garland hopefully this week.

Yop: week 10

I love knitters. Did anyone else see the Claire Outlander Cowl on Ravelry's home pages last week?  I am loving that show ( and my fiance is into it too). Claire's cowl on the show is beautiful and I wanted to make one from the first time I saw it. But I don't know how to knit and I don't think it would look the same if I loom knitted it.
After seeing Polly foo foo's pattern ( and realizing I have the needles the pattern calls for ) I believe I can do it. I just have to learn how to knit :)

Now on to stuff I did this past week. I didn't post my blog to the group last week because I didn't finish anything , but I did set a few goals.

Sew 8 rows of the Mario Blanket together.......

I love sitting outside-ish. The weather is so nice I can sit out on the screened in porch and sew this blanket. lots and lots of sewing. Above is just 7 rows. I got annoyed with it .., lots and lots of sewing. 

Make the Chair Socks...

Here is one chair sock.. I made 2. Not sure if I like them. I LOVE the yarn but I don't know 
if its right for chair socks. 
here are a few other projects Ive been working on .

I wonder what this could be :) 

Making a leaf garland

baby hat ( pattern by Snappy Tots. ) that's all the orange yarn I had so I couldn't add ear flaps.
