Fingerless gloves and caps


I did mention last post that I was making fingerless gloves for my friend Lisa. I gave them to her for her 41st birthday. She loved them! She tells me that she has the coldest hands so I hope this helps her out. I tried to make them in every color I had available. I used Caron Simply soft. I love that yarn it is so soft and very easy to work with. Comes off the hook like butter!

I know I mentioned too that I have been making Chemo caps for Hooks N Grannies group. I used my fun fur yarn that I bought when they clearenced alot of the fun fur out over at Micheals. I love the way the caps came out. I used CrochetWithDee chemo cap pattern. I love the pattern it is so easy and looks fantastic. Thanks Dee!

Ok well Im back to making baby booties so I can donate them with caps that Ive been making. I love Hooks N Grannies they keep me busy making little things for the babies out there. I do plan on making a few doilies I have planned for a few friends for Christmas gifts. So I need to go and check out whats out there in patterns.

Ok Im off to crochet! Have a fantastic day! And keep cool!

Ive been keeping busy with my crocheting as of late. It has been so hot here in Vegas this past week. I dont think I could do anything else but crochet. It reached up to 118 here on Thursday they say it will get cooler now. I hope so.

Well I went and made the little sachet thread gift card holder into a yarn book/CD holder. I made one for my sister for her 50th birthday. She loved it. Here is a pic. My daughter gave me the idea to use yarn instead of thread to make it bigger and maybe put a book in the little pocket. It turned out rather cute I think.

sachets galore

Friends, Ive been on a whirl wind crochet making sachets. My daughter has asked me to make her bouquet for her wedding. I do have a pattern from Annies Attic and I made one of the roses on there. I tried making the rose with thread and it said to crochet with a H hook. But I know from experience that that was way wrong. So I used Caron Simple Soft and it turned out fantastic. I didnt want the other roses to go to waste so I put lavender oil in them and gave them to my daughter as sachets for her private drawer.

While I was crocheting away I found this pattern for half gloves and made them up really quick. They were really fun to make. I made 2 pairs in one day. They were that fast to make up. Im going to give a set to my friend Lisa she always has cold hands.

Ok go crochet:) And be happy.
