What I'm up to this week



Went to my local library today and picked up these books. They have a few cute patterns but not enough to where I'd want to purchase, just borrow.

I added more WIP's to my list:

The Anika sweater from


and the Zig Zag Skirt from


Hope to be posting pics of FO's soon...

Lace Dress is finally finished!!!

I only took a month, but I'm finally finished! As you can see, in between the second diamond pattern and the scallop pattern, I modified that area to provide extra length by adding several rows of double crochet to insure that it would fall below the knee.

Newsboy Cap


This is my adaptation of the newsboy cap from FCEC. I guess I'm on the a hat roll this week, but I do plan on finishing my dress by Saturday.

The Devil Wears "Tofu"?

Why are some PETA activist so stupid? I'm pretty sure it's a simpler way to get your point across than assualting someone. On yesterday in Paris, prior to the Chanel Couture show, Vogue editor Anna Wintour was hit in the face with a tofu cream pie by an animal rights activist yelling, "Fur hag!" and made a quick getaway. I tell you what, you hit me in the face with anything especially while I'm wearing a very expensive fur, you BETTER run!

Zora Hat

This is fresh off of my hook. This hat worked up really quickly, like about an hour. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and a N hook.

The perfect use for an afghan

In my house, my afghans never get neglected... there is always someone cuddled up in one!

What I've been up to...

On one of my down periods when I got completely sick of looking at the tiny threads of that dress, I decided to make a kufi style cap for my husband to match the scarf that I made for him.

Lace Dress - Part 4

I have officially been crocheting this dress for 2 weeks now and I hope to be finished this coming week. If you have a copy of the pattern, I am on Row 44. I've been blocking and trying on the entire time and it looks as if this dress will hit right at the knee.
