The Crochet Lady

Crochet, Kids and Life in general!

So Little Time!

This morning I was cruising the Internet as I usually do with my morning cup of coffee……I am perplexed as to what to do!

I found so many new and beautiful patterns for crochet I would love to create. These patterns are truly beautiful and practical.

Sweaters, Shawls, Scarves, Hats, Mittens…I could go on and on! Where to start? Which yarn? What to create next? What color and texture?

Patterns, Yarns! So many beauties yet so little time! My youngest son, says I am addicted to yarn! He has hit the nail on the head!

Good thing we have a crock pot.

The kids will not starve this week, dinner will be easy, delicious and self serve!

Remember the beautiful wool from an earlier post?

I have started to create my convertible / cellphone mittens!

I love the softness of the wool, it is not like the old fashioned itchy wool, this is soft to touch and will be nice and warm this winter!

At this time I have a pair completed in the wine / maroon, with a vintage brass tone button, this is an updated version of the ones I made last winter. A few changes for the better, the cuff is longer and I have added a loop at the top and button on the cuff to hold the loop when top is folded back.  Last night I started a pair in the teal and will be finishing them today!

This Cardi Shawl is my next endeavor!

The Crochet Lady’s next crochet endeavor!

A cardigan and Shawl all in one from Interweave.  How ingenious!

Crocheted in a medium weight yarn, I can see it in a nice lighter weight, merino wool.

              The hunt is on for just the right yarn for this beautiful Cardi Shawl. I love the gray color, it is very versatile, coordinating vintage style with everyday comfort. Can be worn with your favorite jeans or dresses up for the evening out. Perfect for cool Fall and Spring weather!

So, if you don’t see me out and about for the next few days, don’t worry, you know where I am…in my chair crocheting away!
