1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Andy Warhol's Marilyn on: May 15, 2017 12:14:13 PM
I have been waiting for my local store to get in their shipment of yarn. After finishing the first panel of this afghan over a month ago (maybe more) it feels like it is taking forEVER!  I am done waiting and will move on to something else for the moment.  Pattern is by Cindy Joe who can be found on her Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/cindy.joe.773

Marilyn has been crocheted using a 5mm hook and Red Heart Comfort yarns.  Thanks for viewing!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Be A Pineapple on: May 05, 2017 09:31:24 AM
Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside.   Jordon Sleeveless Pineapple top by Vicky Chan.  Crocheted using 4mm hook and 3.75mm hook as well as Bernat Handicrafter cotton. Pattern was fairly easy to understand (Intermediate) and comes with written instruction as well as charts. Please forgive me as the photos are of the top pinned backwards on the mannequin so yes you are looking at a seam line at the neck. No idea why my photo is on it's side. Thanks for viewing.  Pattern can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jordan---sleeveless-pineapple-top

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / It is the difficult horses that have the most to give you. on: March 20, 2017 01:58:35 PM
Horse Tapestry Bag First time doing something like this. Crocheted with 3mm hook and Luv Baby Fashion yarn in red and white in two weeks.  17 " high and 19" wide. Love the bag but not the handle. Think I would make it half the size with a completely different handle and probably cotton yarn.  The quote is by Lendon Gray

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / HULK ANGRY! on: March 07, 2017 02:26:40 PM
Hulk Afghan - Crocheted using Red Heart Comfort Yarn with a 5mm/H hook. 30,000 stitches. 4 weeks to make this bad boy. This was the hardest afghan to get a decent photo of as most of the photos were dark.  Finally got a decent photo with my daughters phone. Photo's of the front and back after ends were woven in. Thanks for viewing!!!  Pattern by Cindy Joe which can be purchased here: https://www.facebook.com/cindy.joe.773/media_set?set=a.701485096661945.1073741841.100004013837481&type=3

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Owl Obsession on: January 30, 2017 02:12:04 PM
Owl Obsession - I love some of these cute little blankets but hate blocking, hate piecing.  Some of the patterns I find are confusing and some of the stitches are hard to wrap my mind around. You gals that can and do have my utmost respect.  Crocheted using 5mm hook and Red Heart Comfort yarn. 36" long  by 36" wide. Pattern was fairly easy to follow. I elected to NOT add the half octagons. Pattern by TheHatandI; which can be found here:

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Winter is Coming *pic heavy* on: January 23, 2017 10:17:50 AM
Winter is Coming - Half double crochet with 5mm/H hook using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. Finished afghan is 6' 3" wide by 8' 2" long. I began this afghan on November 28, 2016 and finished January 23, 2017.  I did not work it up in my normal manic speed but rather in a slow paced, when I felt like it.  The "Winter" part of the afghan does have a color variation as I ran out of color and could not find a match.  Lesson learned to always make sure you have sufficient matching yarn on hand. The "flowers" on the tree branches was a bit of a pain and when I began, I started stitching on the wrong side. After I ripped that all out I made sure I knew exactly what side I was stitching on.  This afghan could be rearrange in different ways or bits of it incorporated into other afghans, it could also be crocheted using many different colors to compliment your decor.  I appreciate Tina Parker from Ravelry.com for making this pattern available to the public.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Strength Is In Presence *photo heavy* on: November 20, 2016 01:47:04 PM
Neon Lion Afghan; pattern by Judy Calevro Masell.  Pattern can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/neon-lion 

Using a 5mm/H hook this piece was crocheted using Red Heart Comfort and Super Saver as well as some Bernat yarn. This afghan measures five feet across and four  feet long.  In the photos, I posted some photos of the back as well as the front so you can get an idea of the many ends that need to be weaved in. (I spent 11 hours just weaving ends!) I also added a finished photo of the back to show that it looks just as lovely on both sides when completed. Pattern can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/neon-lion

As always; thanks for viewing!
