I just realized, I've never posted anything I've done! Well it's time to amend that! This isn't all of it, but it's some of it. First, I'm the most proud of this I think. It's the sweater I made my mom for Christmas.


I know it's kinda dark, but that shows how long it is and how long the sleeves are.


That's my mom and her hubby. That's the color of the sweater. It looks so good on her!

I'm in kind of a hot pad mode right now so I've been making a lot! These pictures are from my phone so not just great quality but they're ok.


These are bright red and black. I made them for a friend.


Of this pattern I've also made black and white, white and black, red and white, red and rainbow, just rainbow color, and pink and a rose/green/white verigated pattern. I'm going to make bright blue and lime green next.


This one was ok, but it didn't turn out like the pattern and I don't know how to make it turn out like the pattern. Also, it got dirty so I tried to wash it (just wash not dry) and it didn't come out so well...boo.


This is just a scrubber, but it is the rose/green/white pattern I was talking about.


Lastly, we had a wreath contest at work and this was the one another lady and I made. I bought a styrofoam wreath and wrapped it with green sparkly yarn and then went over it in red/white/green sparkly yarn. (I'll probably make Christmas hot pads with it, cause why not right!) It like ribbon candy without any of the bows on it!

Anyway, just wanted to show off some! Hope y'all like it!

I spose they could be used that way too. I put them under my hot pans/dishes to protect the table or counter.

Sorry I haven't been on here in a long time! I have been crocheting like a maniac! I'm almost done making all the pieces for my blanket!



Which is good because it's a wedding present and needs to be done by the 15th in order to give on the 17th of this month. I know I can do it. I just love working under pressure. I am really excited though.
