Crochet Saturday.








I checked the forcast and.... it's crochet weather! There is nothing quite like curling up on the couch with some yarn and a crochet hook when the weather is cool and crisp. A cup of hot tea isn't required, but ... ok, who are we kidding... tea is definitely required. ;)

I whipped up this cowl so that I could attend Trish's craft party (gallery here). Of course, the day I completed the cowl, it decided to be 80 degrees outside.  But... dang it, I was going to wear it despite the heat. After all, I had a virtual craft party to attend, and I needed to look both crafty and fashionable. ;)

Do you guys have any cold weather crafts or hobbies?

Pattern from So Pretty! Crochet by Amy Palanjian. Love the look, but don't crochet?  Then check out Janelle Haskin's Etsy shop. She is the genius designer behind this pattern and her shop is filled with lots of lovely crochet items. UPDATE: The yarn I used was Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Fisherman. Thanks for asking, Emma!

    2. Thank you Erica :) I've come across that yarn before but I was always unsure on how it would knit up! Now you've recommended it I will defiantly be buying some, thanks for the link too.

  29. This neckwarmer is FAB-U-LOUS! I've been trying to start a cowl myself, but accessories are not my strong suit... This is so lovely and inspiring! And I know what you mean about the wishy-washy weather... It can't seem to make up it's mind! :)

  32. Umm...you just "whipped" this up?! PLEASEEE open an Etsy shop. Like now.

    ReplyDelete
  33. How wonderful Erica! I like patterns that are repetitive for the most part, especially whilst you're still learning. And I agree with Ali, I think you'd have a very successful Etsy shop!

  34. This is lovely! I am going to have to get some of that yarn as well.

  35. Erica, I'm so jealous! haha My grandma tried for to long to teach me, but I'm the worst with crochet! haha
    At least I learned the cross point thing (IDK how is it call in english..) well enough to make cute towels :)

    And great news: after a long time looking for the wooden letters I found a great webshop! I'm gonna order it next week :)
