Latest hat order off to Canada.

I was just going to post my half finished project tonight, but couldn’t stop crocheting.
Soooo, I’m posting both photos. Progress and completion in one go!!
I felt like crocheting something girly and pink as you can see. Hehe

Crochet & Shopping

I haven’t been feeling well this past week so screwed up on my blog posts. Oh well, better late than never right? 🙂 I’m feeling a bit more myself, and managed to get atleast one striped slouchy beanie completed. It’s in a tangerine colour with a brown stripe. I liked the colour a lot more than I thought I would and was actually tempted to keep it. I need to make yarn money though, so it’ll have to go in my shop. *sigh*

Speaking of yarn, I bought some! Possibly too much. Again. Also got another Clover Crochet hook which is stuck in there somewhere. I just had to get an issue of Inside Crochet magazine as well. It’s my fave crochet mag and always has something interesting to read or gain inspiration from.

I saw the gorgeous purple Sirdar Click chunky with wool and had to snag a few. I’ve already started a hat with it! 🙂 I also threw in a random Sirdar Supersoft Aran in a mustard colour. Just because I was standing next to it. Like I needed a reason.

The green flecked SMC Riana was on sale and also had to go home with me. Unfortunately I later realised I’d bought two different types. *mad face* You can barely tell the difference, but it’s there. One is slightly lighter than the other.

So here’s my dilemma… Do I go back and exchange the odd one out for the right brand, or should I just buy another of the right brand and 2 or 3 more of the imposter? Decisions, decisions. Returning yarn just seems wrong. Can you even return it? I think I’ll just buy more and learn my lesson that way. Yup, that’ll teach me to not pay attention. hehe

Candy Corn Beanie Crochet Pattern

I’m late! Hat orders have made me miss the Halloween deadline, but atleast I’m early for next year! Lol

I love candy corn with a passion, and had a last minute desire to create a candy corn beanie.

The pattern is available in child, teen and adult sizes and works up really quickly.

Link to the pattern in my etsy shop is here – Candy Corn Beanie

Hope you like it!

WIP Wednesday

I’ve decided to try amigurumi! I’ve been crocheting since I was a teenager, and I really think I should have tried it ages ago, because I love it! OMG, it’s so cool! I made a toy, that I’ve spoken to on numerous occasions which is probably worrying my boys. Hehe Whatever!

This is JB or Jr. Blob.

I got my youngest to draw a photo of a random monster and went to work to see if I could recreate it. I changed a fee things, but I think I got the basic look down.

I still need to add arms, just haven’t decided on how they’ll look and where they’ll be placed yet. I’m in love with him so far, and he just happily sits next to me watching me crochet. He’s my new pal! 🙂 My boys think I’m nuts, but they’re probably just jealous! Hehe

I took a break from him today because I was craving candy corn since Halloween is coming up. The only place I can get it is on eBay or amazon, so I decided to crochet a candy corn hat. I’m almost finished, but think I’ve screwed up. Hey, not everything I make comes out perfectly you know! My younger teen thinks it looks like a boob. My eldest does as well, he didn’t say anything, but the look on his face said it all. *sigh*

I don’t know if I should continue or start over. I could just call it a a Cotton Candy Boob Hat and pretend it was totally intentional. lol
