Airy Summer Sling

The Airy Summer Hobo is one of my all time patterns on the site. I use my bags at least once a week but they are really starting to show wear, not the crochet part, the yarn actually gave out. No surprise though, I walk to get groceries and load everything into them to carry home (it can get kind of heavy when I walk home with milk and juice). I've repaired several but I bought some cotton yarn and have been making several new ones. 

The Airy Summer Hobo is one of the most popular patterns on the site but the number one complaint is that people have a hard time handling the large 10mm hook. For any of you that have gotten hand cramps from the large hook this new pattern is for you, the Airy Summer Sling pattern is a smaller modified version of the Hobo but crocheted with a J hook.

I Believe in Dragons

This past weekend I got to go to a medieval faire. Check out my photos here. It was cold and windy so shawls and cloaks were the fashion of the day. I was inspired to create my very first crocheted shawl design. The gentle points remind me of dragon wings.

Hibiscus Flower Hair Ties

These pretty hair ties were born when my MIL asked for hair flowers to wear to football games.

Bow Holder

I worked this pattern up several months ago but things have been nuts around here so I am only just getting around to posing it.

I've been all about wearing flowers in my hair lately, I think my Bettie Page bangs influencing me. We don't have much room to store things in our little old house so I designed this to put my clips on. I remember having something like this when I was a child only the face was painted wood.

Veggie Corn Dog

Corn dogs are probably my most desired bad for you food. I could eat my fill in them, good thing most places don't have veggie dog versions otherwise I would.

One Bite Ice Cream Cone

Everyone needs sweets once in a while.

These little cones were worked from small scrap balls of yarn. Whip a dozen of these up in no time. Ice cream always brings a smile to a person's face, give them as gifts or add them to your little one's play food collection.
