Finger less gloves

The weather is getting chilly, and soon we already started to wear sweaters. So whats not better then having finger less knitted gloves to keep us warm on chilly mornings on our way to work. Now your palm and bottom of your hands are warm, and your fingers are free

New expression project :D

   So, what does this teen love to do on her summer dog days? Teach others her passion to other young and old in her community, and to do do projects! I have a new project perfect for beginners. It includes the basic stitches, and skills. The single crochet, chain and combining to colors of yarn in a pattern. Also it teaches how to use graph paper to incorporate pictures. If you want I just started and I will show you how to start it to finishing it. Here you will a crochet a letter of your choice, and add anything else you want! 


Below are the blue prints. Note that these are scaled down versions. I will eventually make it bigger on the actual size. Use the scaled down versions and the larger version just as a guide!

Spring means bright yarn!

I love that the weather warmed up! I started to collect more yarn :) but bright colors. Colors like blue, yellow and green. Now that Mommy's day is edging in, crochet her a bouquet of flowers that will never wilt and make her smile everyday :). Below are some sites you can see for crocheted flowers! (and many other projects).


Happy spring!

Loom beanie

      Not many days ago, I began working on a new project, a beanie on a loom. Within a few days I was able to finish about half of it. Still working on it, school decided to interfere with it :/. But this hat is perfect for holding hair back. But if you have a loved one with cancer or someone who lost all of his or her hair this cute beanie might spark some confidence! Also perfect as a present for any teen, male or female! So here are some loovvley pictures to show you what I am working on and will plan on posting a pattern for it as soon as I am finished :).
    Happy Knitting and crocheting :P
This is the "Outside" of it

What shall keep your head nice and toasty :)
