Look what I can do!


A friend of mine told me about this really neat knitted scarf pattern and I just had to try it after seeing her scarves! LET ME SAY: I am NOT a knitter! I'm learning tho! I either get it too tight or too loose, but I'm trying! But this pattern is so fun and I think it's turning out pretty good! It is so easy and fun! It's called Farrow Rib Scarf (aka Magic Scarf). On #8 needles, you cast on 25 sts. Then *K3, P1, repeat from * across and K1 in last stitch. You repeat this pattern for the entire scarf. I'm using the Clover Bamboo needles and I love the feel of them. I see Christmas presents out of this pattern!!!

Here is a baby sweater I just finished last night. I used a pattern from Bella's and then used my own dc row and cross stitch row. I'm so used to making preemie things that I get so paranoid when making newborn items that they won't fit. Ok...I admit...I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my crocheting!

Hi. What a beautiful sweater. Could you please put the pattern up with your changes? I am just starting to crochet preemie sweaters for charity and would love to have the pattern.

Hello, I've finally been able to get onto your blog. Every time I click on your name I reach a dead end, I wanted so much to come by and see what you have been up to. Are you also crafty crochet on Mikeysmail live stream? I'm going to have a look around your blog, what I have seen so far looks excellent :)
