Spring has arrived, my daffodils are blooming, the forsythia is starting to bloom and my sinuses are killing me;) Oh well, I always have to have something to whine about, don't I?
I'm in between projects now. I've made 31 preemie hats, but I got to give them to my sister-in-law before I count them as given to charity. I've been very lax on that this year.
My beloved redid my kitchen, did a great job. Now I'm thinking "hmm, do I want to make some sort of rug? or maybe some potholders or something sunflowery? " I got new white cabinets and blue tiles for a splashback. I always need potholders. but a rug would be nice, too.
Plus I think I should pursue a more detailed project I have been putting off. That's making the matching tier for the one lion tier I made. Or maybe make some of those crocheted Peeps for Easter? Or *shudder* plan how to organize my yarn....that's a scary thought...
On the other hand, I just want to veg out. Go outside, look at the flowers, be happy spring has sprung and do nothing. I'd like to say it was spring fever but I think it's laziditis. But in reality I should pick something relatively simple to work on this week. It's the big print week and I will be working late at least 1 day this week. Maybe I should investigate Ravelry a bit more as to their project queueing ability.
Anyway, enough about me - on with the show
This isn't a pattern but crocheting as a love story. I thought it was pretty good.
Yes, it is past Valentine's Day, but love and hearts never go out of season. So here's a printable heart chart that you can mess about with - maybe a scarf or a table runner for Mother's Day?
I think I posted this before, if I have, please forgive me. That's what Claritin does to you;) But I am fascinated by this pattern and I'm thinking of doing it in a rug pattern. I know, sounds squirrely, but there you are.
Yes, I know it's gotten warmer in most places (except for you, Pat, with your spring snow) but this is still pretty cool - a flower afghan
This is supposed to be for "egg cozies" which is great if your eggs are col. But they say "egg cozies", I say "finger puppets"
For those of you who embellish your stationary or maybe work on scrapbooks, this pattern is for you - I think it's pretty neat, an embroidery thread flower embellishment
Yes, Saint Patrick's Day is over, the green beer finally finished and the corned beef made into corned beef hash. You may have even found a pot of baked beans at the end of the rainbow. But just in case you want to start early for next year - or maybe for some Irish friends - here's a shamrock afghan pattern:
As usual, I receive no payola for posting any of these items. I do have a special bank account set up if anyone wants to contribute any payola (it's at a place I call "my pockets";)) but so far, nobody has offered anything. But I'll show them, I'll keep buying yarn and crocheting. Hey, wait, that sounds kind of goofy....
