Scrap Crochet Market Bag



I came upon this pattern and will be slowly working on it bit by bit as I go along. I really like it and though the pattern was a bit confusing at first it's not as hard as it looked (gotta love that symbolism in a pattern!).

It's worked up in some left over "Hot Blue" and "Hot Pink" I had lying around in cotton, and while the pattern does not call for stripes in that fashion it does make for an interesting bag.

Mommy & Me Shawl - One Scoop or Two


Finally finished! The "Mommy & Me" Shawl, "One Scoop or Two" style.

I came up with this design as a result of having a sizeable amount of yarn left over from a baby blanket made for a friend's baby shower.

Future orders of all baby blankets will a "Mommy & Me" shawl free of charge!

Finished dimensions: 68" x 12" (*Sizes may vary depending on the style of the shawl and exact amount of yarn left!)

Finally! I've got it! - Granny Triangle Shawl Pattern


By joe even, or rather, by another wonderful blogger and some idle searching through the internet I have identified a stitch pattern from an old shawl my grandmother made. At first I couldn't quite place it due to a unique part of the pattern on the edges that accounted for some of it's structure, but as I read through someone's rendition of the stitch pattern it came to me that that was exactly what I'd been looking for! Gotta love those "ah-ha" moments!

So it was started tonight and really hasn't made it too far, but I wanted to share with everyone. It's another one of the "scrap" projects and is being made with the left overs from out "Raspberry Burnt Toast Cowl". Other colors may be added, or not as it goes along, but it's a wonderful simple and nice shawl for an evening out or even at home!
