So after years of crocheting for others I was thinking what to do next when I realized I have made something for almost everyone in my life but myself. So here is my gift for myself Hope you like.






Ok so I just cant stop making for others. I made my daughter poncho and Ear warmer out of the left over yarn. She loves that we match.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

I used red heart soft yarn. I used 2 strands together to make it heavy.  And it called for a L hook.  I wasnt that hard but I have a short attentions span, so I worked for a while then put it aside to finish several for others than I finished it. I love it it is nice and toasty.

Wow that is freakin awesome. Did you use a pattern for it? I also like how you made your little lady a poncho and earwarmers out of the leftovers too cute.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.
