In the fall I looked at a few patters for crocheting a hand sanitizer pouch to give out to a few family members and adjusted them to fit the Purell container that I had several of that were easy to refill. It's a simple and quick pattern you can easily adjust to your own size … Continue reading Purell Hand Sanitizer Free Crochet Pattern
You don't even want to see the first cloth mask I went out in. It was a no sew idea: cloth napkin folded over two hair ties with a tissue folded inside of it. I think it was about 3 inches thick... Okay, okay, here it is! My first cloth-napkin wrap around mask before it … Continue reading Testing Out Many DIY Face Mask Options
This fall has found me busily crocheting along for various occasions, including my usual gift giving for Christmas. I thought I'd take a moment to share a baby blanket I recently made for a couple who is expecting their little one (gender unknown!) and they nicknamed baby "Moose" for now. So, I made a gender … Continue reading Annual Crocheting for the Holidays
It's been a little while, I know. I haven't really missed writing too much, my bad, but when I've had thoughts to share I haven't made the time to sit down and share them.

I didn't get a chance to take an "official" photo of the duckling hat I made for my brand new nephew. I gave it to my sister-in-law at the beginning of November for her sprinkle. I had to work it up quick to get it ready in time! It turned out a little big, but … Continue reading 7 Days of Crochet: Duckling Hat
My niece Ayla has such a soft, gentle, and unique personality. She was the original reason I wanted to get the crochet books and try my hand at making a hat. This was the last hat I worked on, the most difficult, the most imperfect, but the one that started it all. I felt in … Continue reading 7 Days of Crochet: Snow Leopard Hat
The Bunny was just so soft, precious, and energetic much like my niece Gwenners. I originally considered making her a ladybug, but the pattern was only in the adult book and it was extremely involved.
