Pinterest Inspiration: Ocean Waves Baby Blanket

I recently came across a beautiful picture on Instagram of an afghan that was made from corner to to corner. I was instantly intrigued and wanted to try the pattern out myself! 

I found the perfect tutorial/pattern by Susan Carlson from Felted Button...Seriously go check out her beautiful patterns!!

 

Now all I needed was some color inspiration! So I went to my Color Things board on Pinterest, and found this lovely seascape color palette...

 

 

Great Idea: Crochet Planned Color Pooling

I came across this really cool technique a while ago, and wanted to share some of the projects I made using the Planned Color Pooling technique!


I had no idea that you could use many of the awesome variegated yarn colorways out there to make patterns in your finished projects, without haveing to manually change colors and weave in ends! 

 


Most of the example I have seen use the Moss Stitch or Linen Stitch to get the right amount of stitches to make an argyle pattern form in your projects...but I have also seen some projects with shell stitches, too!

Crochet, Cancer, and the Cause!

As you may know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Being in the business of making hats, I've have the pleasure to make several over the years for beautiful women who have been diagnosed with breast (or other) cancers. The thing that I've always taken away from these opportunities, is how amazing and strong these women are. So brave and courageous.

Pinterest Inspiration: Rainbow Waves Afghan

Good morning!

I thought I'd share another Pinterest Inspiration project with you today!

A while ago I came across this lovely pin:

I love the serenity and color of this graphic...so pretty!

(ETA: Thank you to Jeannette​ for directing me to the proper link for the image!  You can find the original source HERE.)

I knew immediately that I wanted to try making an afghan that had the same look to it.

And here's my take:

Pinterest Inspiration: End of Winter Cowl

A couple of weeks ago I saw this pretty cowl image floating around Pinterest.

When I looked it up I found out that ChiWei, the designer - from One Dog Woof, was hosting a Crochet-Along, with the End of Winter pattern as the project!  

I decided to join in...and I'm so glad I did!

I loved CheWei's beautiful bright pink...but I wanted to use some yarn that I'd had in my stash for a long time, instead.  I had this pretty, super-soft Bernat Premium taupe colored yarn...I'd gotten it on clearance, so I'm not sure they even make this anymore!

What's New: Crochet Bunnies (and a pig and duck, too!)

Thought I'd share a couple of pics of my latest creations!
