Zebra Cowl

I love this! It took 10 oz of yarn and an
H and G hook. I sooo want to keep it for myself! This thing is so warm!!

Again I used bobwilson123's cowl tut on YouTube! Love her stuff!

Holiday Cowl

I saw this youtube cowl tutorial by bobwilson123 on Melinda's FB page. I loved it! I immediately thought red to go with my fingerless flower gloves!

I've finished a second one! Pics to follow :)

My new free style flapper-ish hat

I wanted to make a hat for a friend at work. She said she like turquoise. I saw this yarn and wanted to try it. I thinks it came out pretty good! I need to finish off the flower petal edge then it's done!

I'm having fun playing with my hooks!!!

My new hat freestyle

I tried to follow a pattern. It didn't work so I ended up freestyling this as I went along. I think it turned out better well. This is going to be a Christmas gift for my aunt! Woot!

Crocodile Stitch

I saw this stitch on YouTube and had to try it! It is so much easier than I thought it would be! If you look at tjw123 you can see how to do it.

I added 3 rows of single crochet, then continued with double crochets for the rest of the piece. At the other end I did 2 rows of single crochet. To get the crocodile stitch right on the other end I made it separately. Finished it off with 2 rows of single crochet. Then joined.

Soft Sorbet

I'm obsessed. I saw this yarn when I was at Big Lots trying to find Christmas gift bags. It was so yummy! The colors are so fun! And the yarn us all soft! Had to get it!

I made this warmer. It's adorable! I'm going to have to start posting on my etsy shop just to decrease my increasing stash! Lol

My Arm Candy Warmer!

I saw this yarn and had to have it. The pic isn't as bright ( iPhone cam). But it is just a fun color. I knew I was going to use a puffy stitch!

I also wanted a warmer that would go higher up on the arm.

I must say it is a warm little number!! If my white turtle neck were clean I'd wear them to work tomorrow ( after I made the matching one of course!)!
