2017...a year of crochet!

I recently read Coco Rose Diaries  year end post...summing up her creative endeavors for last year.  (I lover her blog, by the way...and the way she writes and shares her story...) That got me to many crochet projects did I complete in 2017? I went through my photos for the year... It was fun to look back at all of them!

From top to bottom, January to December, 2017...a few doilies, 2 blankets, the snowflakes I give to my students, the wrist warmers I gave as gifts, a scarf or two, and the red hats I donated to the Little Hats, Big Hearts project...I ended up making eight red hats to donate. The hats and the wrist warmers were probably 2 of my top faves for the year!! Thanks for checking's fun to take a look I already have finished a couple of things in 2018! Happy crocheting!

Little white hat

Happy  Tuesday! I had a little crochet time in the car this weekend, and made this baby hat:
I used this pattern and added a little pom pom at the top....
Have a creative day!

Snow day crochet...

We had a snow day yesterday.
I needed it.
School has been stressful.

This little project done in thread was just what I needed.
Hope your day was creative, too.

Gift idea...

Like most crafters (I hope, anyway!) I decided rather in a week before make pretty wrist warmers/fingerless gloves as gifts.  I made myself a pair and have gotten several compliments on them. I decided to make them for the women in my family, plus a co-worker. 
Let me say, I absolutely LOVE this pattern! You can find it here. They are very quick and easy to make...and everyone who gets them will be impressed by your handiwork!! I printed the handmade tags here, and put them in a little cellophane bag.
I have to admit..the pair I gave to my co-worker was very last minute...I ended up finishing the pair for her on the last day of school before Christmas break, while my class went to p.e.!! Hey...that's how it goes, right??? 
Thanks for checking in and stay warm!!

A blanket stack...

Most crocheters will get this...the beauty of handmade blanket stack. I love the Instagram images of beautiful, crocheted blankets. So today I finished my third crocheted blanket...the perfect way to spend a below zero day in MN...

3 blankets:  officially enough to make a "stack" (in my opinion, anyway!).

Thanks for checking in and have a great day!
