I'm moving...

My reasons are in my new entry on my new blog.. Blogger wasn't really working for me. You can now find me here:

Recent hook creations, and a few oldies..

I finished this baby up last night. A web-like cowl. Can be worn wrapped around twice or three times. A lovely little accessory.

This hat was made a few months ago.. I just never got around to taking actual pictures of it. It can be seen this winter season keeping my noggin nice and toasty.

A hat made from homespun yarn. A style of hat I'm not really known to wear, however it has grown on me and makes for a very warm head on a snowy day.

This hat is free to a good home. :) White and pink, which aren't really my colors. I had some left over yarn from another project. It's a pretty little number. Fits my head snugly, but would most likely fit a child better. Takers? SOLD .. Miss Jacki won.

Not gonna lie, I'm proud of this beauty. It's a scarf specially designed and made for my dear husband. This is my first Tunisian Crochet project.

New skills

 My newest venture into the world of crochet is Tunisian Crochet. Some may call it the Afgan Stitch.. however its uses are more diverse then what the Afgan stitch implies. Tunisian crochet uses a long hook with a stopper at the end, kind of like a knitting needle, but not. The results are a beautiful fabric that looks almost exactly like knit! The above pictures are of my practice swatch. I don't have any photos of my first project which is still in the works. When it's completed I'll post a picture of it with it's handsome recipient. :-)
