Baby Blanket Set Back and Moving Forward I have been working alot on the baby blanket. Last week I posted my progress with these photos. Later that day I picked it up again, I was crocheting away when I noticed that my stitches seemed really loose and the edges were growing. I counted my […]

MoreWIP Happenings

I always got my best grades in Speech Class for my Improve. Saturday afternoon I was working on the pencil colored pencil case. I noticed that I had added about 5 more stitches per round than I needed.I started ripping it back to find where I had gone astray. I found the place, […]

I Just Can’t Help Myself

I Crocheted Another Skull Cap Beanie!

I finally got my design for this down and gave it a name.

Project Name: Black Multi-color Fruit Punch Stripe Skull Cap

Started on: 02/22/2017
Finished on: 02/23/2017

The beanie is listed on my Ebay.

This is the break down of the items I have on my Ebay.

Hats- 44

Scarves – 9

A pair of Wrist Warmers

Bags- 9

Coin Purse/ Wallet -7

Crochet Sets – 6

Which includes 4 more hats, 3 more scarves, 2 pairs of wrist warmers, a pair of mittens, 3 more bags, and a coin purse.

As you can see I really like to do hats. 😛

I think I should try to do another scarf next, my site is called Skrappy Skarves so I should have more in my inventory. But the hats are so quick to do, so I don’t put them away when I get bored with them. I could finish that pencil case before I start a new project. It would not take long if I just get to it. Then I would have another item knocked of my WIP list. I still have not decided, if I will add more rows to the triangle shawl or just trim it out and add fringe, yet. I have lost intrest in the blue market bag for the moment. So that means the hook holder sits too, since I want to do the liners for both at the same time.

If I do decide to start a scarf, what pattern should I use? Decisions, decisions!

Another Christmas Themed Item

Christmas Sparkle Clutch/Bag/Wallet

I will be sharing my pattern for this in a future blog on Skrappy Skarves , with a photo turorial making a second one. Which I will reblog or share here if I can figure it out LOL. I did not think to share and do a tutorial until I had finished this one. I had to make better sense of my notes then write it out in pattern like form. I also thought photos would help with the steps.
