Christmas Gifts

whiteDad’s simple request, white hanging hand towels for the kitchen. I did a simple dish cloth, too. He has everything he wants so buying him anything is stupid. He tells me what he wants and I make it. I did get him the new Dogshaming book. If you love your fur babies you must check out the Dogshaming website.   http://www.dogshaming.com/

Love this little pineapple!!

pineappThis was a gift to a friend. It was a free pattern but I so love the shape!!

Dad’s chair back

red squareI’ve gotten a lot of practice with this pattern. I think I’ve made 4 or 5 of these. This picture is with size 10 thread but I think I may need to use size 3 to get it big enough for the back of his chair. I had made 2 of this pattern in lusture sheen for the back of his couch and he liked them so much I was told to make a smaller one for his chair! Of course the size 3 red thread is on back order, guess he will have to wait!

I forgot to post this!!!!!

shawlThis is a long double wrap shawl with pineapple edgings!! (love pineapples). It is done in light mohair. I may get to wear this one since I live were it just doesn’t get very cold. I can tell ya where to find this pattern, just ask. This is yarn from my hoard…. pictures of hoard to follow!! LOL!

I wish I had more time to work on my projects! Having to work a job really cramps my crochet time!

More Hankies

edgingm550xm500__linenedging

This linen one is not mine but I plan to copy it, so pretty!!

The colored ones are mine! The light blue one is actually done in sewing thread so it’s very small and hard to see in this picture. It is a double row of fan stiches.

Please remember if you like anything I can lead you to the pattern or give you any pattern that is mine or that I got for free!!

Real Antiques

These were not made by me but are old. You can see that they are a bit faded. The back is a plain double crochet. The pattern for these can be found at Maggie’s Crochet.

Future Tablecloth

I’m using a yarn

pattern with thread.

So far I have 5 squares

finished so it’s gonna be a while before there

is a finished product.

Sparkley!! Shawl

It’s hard to tell from this picture but this thread has a silver thread running thru is and has sequins in it!!! It is so pretty but can be hard to work with if you don’t make loose stitches. This would be a lovely addtion to a wedding dress or a shoulder cover for an evening gown!

Please note that I do pay for some of these patterns and don’t mind sharing but the people that took the time to publish their patterns do this for a living. I will always let you know where I found the pattens so you can check out their other work and purchase from them!!

Late Late Late!!!!

This is from an afgan pattern but I used smaller yarn and adjusted the pattern since the pattern was trying to make this in sections. It’s easier to do it all at once than have to sew it together! I love the pineapples and the top and bottom scallops!! I actually found this yarn on a large spool at an antique store! Paid about $5.00 for it and had enough to make a sweet lap afgan for a chilly nite watching TV!

Pineapple shawl

This was a free pattern called Village Shawl. I omitted the fringe, not my thing. But I do love the pineapple patterns!!

 

I have informed Mr Crochety that I will be hoarding yarn and thread. I figure when I retire and have time to crochet more I will be too broke to afford it …………. so, problem solved!!
