Crochet Fever



It all started innocent enough.
The weather in December turned bone chilling cold.
I was shopping one day and found Lion Brand Unique yarn.
Oooohhh, pretty, pretty.
I bought 2 skeins.


Knowing Taylor walks alot, I figured she needed a new scarf.
I used this tutorial.
2 skeins was not enough.
I had to wait for more yarn.
It finally came in, I bought 2 more.
I finished her scarf.
Oh so soft and toasty.


On Facebook's The Crochet Crowd, I saw this challenge.
I went in and grabbed a skein of acrylic yarn and got busy.
I found the written pattern confusing but once I watched the video it all clicked.
I used a larger hook than the pattern said
 and for the smaller hat,
I just made it up as I went.
These are for Lacey and Estella.
I hope Estella's fits her.
I'll find out later today.
I love a good trip to town that involves being a passenger and lots of waiting/crochet time.


While getting the scarf yarn, I saw camo yarn and had to buy a skein.
Taylor loves all things camo!!!



I used a V stitch and crocheted until I was almost out of yarn.
She is very excited to wear this one,
I can't wait to give it to her.

What's next?
I have an afghan UFO that needs attention.
I'm going to get that afghan ready for my new to go project.
Night time recliner time is now back to sock knitting.

I've been seduced by crochet lately, too.

I love your projects. I don't see how you can get so much done along with quilting! I must be doing something wrong!
