Red Heart Ridged Crochet Hat

This is one of my latest hats I have done and quickly becoming one of my favorite crochet hat patterns is the Ridged Crochet Hat by Red Heart. I have already done a few hats in this pattern already, this particular hat was done in a tweed yarn bought a local craft shop.  Looking at all the reviews of this pattern, they are all positive and I agree that this is a great pattern.

It has been a while

I just realized that I haven't posted anything in almost months. I guess that I really have not have much motivation to write anything. I should seriously consider making a resolution to post something every day. If you follow me on my Facebook page, I do make every effort to post my latest projects there.

This black crochet hat was the latest project that I finished. It was quick to do, I found a pattern on Pinterest that only involved making a rectangle and sewing up the side and the top. Though it was quick, it a not usually a fan of sewing up a side of the hat.

Granny Square Shawl and Vacation

Last year we were supposed to go to South Dakota for a vacation, but could not make because of my dad's health. This year we were able to go and I had a good time. I never had been to South Dakota and enjoyed seeing the sights to include Mount Rushmore.

Before my trip I started a granny square shawl. I finished it up yesterday.

Tablet Case

Some projects are created because I needed something. In this case I needed a cover to protect my tablet on an upcoming trip to South Dakota. I had a large amount of grocery bags and decided to using strips of cut up grocery bags.

This is my first time(that I can remember) using grocery bags in a crochet project and it would not be the last.

Knitted scarf

I made up a knitted version of the handkerchief scarf

Now I should of known that that if I did just a stockinette pattern that it was going to curl.  I had to steam it with my iron to take most of the curl out. I did an increase at one end every fourth row until it reached 30 inches, then I  decreased every fourth row until I was down  back to a stitch.

I did start another scarf. I am going to use a garter stitch to not have the curl and going to decrease/ increase every other row instead.

What can I say, it is yet another hat.

Crochet Kerchief Scarf

I fell in love with this pattern. This is the third scarf I made.

This pattern is a #caroncakes pattern, put could be adapted to be used with different kinds of yarn.

This is my first one using a variety of scrap yarn. What I like about this scarf is that the thickest part of scarf could be used as a hood, but of course, I would not be able to test out that theory until winter comes along.
