What’s On My Hook

What’s on my hook: Ombre ripple blanket

I feel like I’ve been on a crochet marathon to see just how much I can do before the baby comes. I blame this in part onย people telling us over and over again that we’ll never get to do X again as well as…

What’s on my hook: Cabled beanies

Stephanie made yet another adorable crochet pattern: Cabled Beanie Version 2. I altered it to make one for the baby too. I have one more on my hooks that looks just like the one she made with the cutest faux fur pom pom, but…

What’s on my hook: Pretty Triangle Scarf

I’m on a shawl kick! I can’t get enough of this Chroma yarn from Knit Picks (this specific colorway is Lake Front). This is one of my first projects using a fingering-weight yarn. I usually prefer to use worsted as I like the way…

What’s on my hook: Baby dragons

Oh my, usually I hate the way my amigurumi turns out. I do good making all the pieces, until it comes to putting them all together. They usually come out looking deformed to me, but this little dragon I think came out looking pretty…

What’s on my hook: V-eekender Scarf/Shawlette

One of the items on my crochet bucket list has been a smallish shawl (which is known as a shawlette, I had no idea. You learn something new everyday!) so that I could wear it as a scarf and not look too much like…
