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!  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

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 …

YOP: Week 9

There will not be a Year of Projects post this week. I've been busy with hat orders. But I will be back next week.
Like I did with a previous post , I want to set a few goals for the up coming week .

I have 8 rows of squares of the Mario Blanket made, my goal is to sew all of them together.  MUST finish the chair socks. use the Walking Dead graph and start the bag.
