Owl Sock Pattern Toddler Size

Owl Sock Pattern Toddler Size

My daughter loves to hide her socks all over the house so when we go looking for them we can never find them. So I have been trying to find a solution to this problem and I started thinking about the left over sock yarn that I had shoved in the back of my stash. She loves to get things that we make for her so I decided to make her a pair of socks.

Bobble Stitch

Never have I been so glad that I have backups of tutorials than today. Yesterday my camera ran out of batteries, and I started freaking out because I couldn’t go out and by more until later today. Then I remembered that I have a tutorial all lined up.  So today I bring you the Bobble Stitch.

The bobble stitch is another textured stitch, which is really fun to do.

No Crafts Today

I know that I usually post a knitting or crochet project I have been working on towards the end of the week. But I realized that it has been a long time sense I have posted some of my artwork.

Like many people I have to doodle to pay attention fully when listening to things like classroom talks or sermons in church, so quite a few of these drawings started, or were finished on Sunday morning. I…

Popcorn Stitch

Today we are going to continue with the tutorials that I talked about last MondayDSC00632

It will be the blue one in the photo above. The stitch is called the popcorn stitch, and it can really give a fabric some depth. 

Like the other stitches I started with a double crochet base to work on.

The Puff Stitch

I have taken up making my own crochet hooks again, and to break them in I decided to do a few tutorials with them. Only after I show off a bit of my wood working.

I think that I am getting pretty good at these

This one might be a little to thin I admit. But it is great for working with cotton yarn.

No New Tutorial Today

While slowly setting up the tutorial I was planning on for today I hit a little snag. We are having a little money trouble over at our house so some of the money that I set aside to do something that was not a crochet tutorial or a pattern, but something a little different and fun, went towards that. Leaving me with no time to take photos for a tutorial or to edit some of the patterns I am…

This is just a quick update, but I really wanted to share this. At the beginning of the week Jimmy finally picked up the yarn for me to make him his present.

Jewelry and anxieties.

I have found that sometimes life never does what you expect it to. Sometimes it can be a nice surprise but most of the time it’s not. It is hard not to wallow in the dispair that you feel. It is the easiest option, and I won’t lie, it is one that I give in to for a while.

Then reality sets back in. The house needs to be cleaned, I have to play dolls with with daughter, and other things. So for a…

New jewelry I made. So proud of myself. It is for sale over at my etsy shop

The top photo of course is not jewelry for your body but jewelry for your knitting needles because they are stitch markers.
