Bag is finished!

The bag I have been crocheting from this pattern is complete! Took me about a week and a half to finish it.


I may or may not add some accents to the bag. We will see.

I started the baby earflap hat I mentioned in my last post, but I can't figure out for the life of me how to properly join circular rounds with a slip stitch while making a hat. It was turning out very wonky and unattractive. I took the whole thing apart and am just scrapping the project for now.

Onto making more granny squares for the blanket!

Working on stuff, just constantly crocheting...

Over the past two weeks or so, I have began and then proceeded to unravel several things I crocheted. I started to get into the idea of crocheting a necklace, so I used a motif from this book, and then made two chains to make some nice ties for the back of the necklace. It was beautiful and I wore it everyday, but then I forgot to grab it as I was leaving Anchorage and coming back to Fairbanks. It is the only thing I forgot! I can make another one, but I need a smaller crochet hook, which I borrowed from my sister to make the original necklace at the time.

After the necklace completion I then moved on to make this amigurumi using yet another pattern from the Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wonderful book.


Currently I am working on a baby hat from this pattern. I thought that the earflaps were very cute and I also had thoughts about adding on some bear ears to the hat. I have so much leftover pink and cream yarn that I used for the baby pullover AND both amigurumis I have done, that I could totally make two more hats. Too bad I throw away the packaging to yarn everytime, now I don't remember what brand it was so I can buy more. >_O
