First Successful Hat!

I just finished my first successful hat! Jesse is sleeping, but I hope he likes it. I used the pattern from the SnB Happy Hooker – Crochet book – for the “boy beanie”. It’s grey with green stripes. I’m going to try it on him once he wakes up and will take photos then! Then, ...

Princess Leia modeling yarn items

Princess Leia “barbie” is modeling a crocheted hat, crocheted skirt, crocheted capelet and a crocheted purse. She is also wearing a knitted shawl (that’s like Bailey’s). I’ve finished multiple items today! Now I just need to find a new project! Princess Leia modeling yarn items Originally uploaded by Shel Kennon.

The shawl is done!

OK, it ended up being for Bailey because I was SOOOOOO tired of knitting it and when I finished it, it was too little for me. Oh well, she looks really cute in it! I’ll make myself another one!

I’ve started working on a shawl for the freezing days at work! It feels like I’ve been knitting this forever and ever! I’m close to the end of the ball of yarn and then I discovered another ball! I’ll have to decide if I want to keep going once I finish. I’m also working on ...

Octopi

here’s my first 2 octopi, Byron’s big brothers. He also has a furry pink big sister octopus who’s not finished yet. I crocheted her in the car on vacation and she still need to be stuffed and have a tushy! Octopi Originally uploaded by Shel Kennon.

Yet another of my crocheted animals. I’ve also made 3 octopi! I’ll put up photos of the octopi soon. I also finished another knitted item last night as well! A long green and blue scarf. Byron Originally uploaded by Shel Kennon.

My First Knitted object!

Oddly enough, I learned to knit when I was on vacation over the weekend. I coaxed my husband to take me to the yarn store in Blue Ridge, GA to buy some more yarn for crocheting and the lady said she’d show my daughter how to knit. The next day, DH dropped us off and ...

So, I finished my first attempt at the iPod sock, but it was totally not even, so I make it into a small purse for my 6-yr-old to play with. I started a new one and followed the pattern (basically 14 rows of hdc). However, the yarn I’m using is to as thick so, of ...

Purple scarf! Originally uploaded by Shel Kennon. I crocheted this scarf! I made Bailey a pink one from a “learn to crochet” kit, but this is the first scarf I crocheted from “fancy” yarn. It’s really toasty and totally beautiful. I started crocheting an iPod case the other day. After unraveling it for about the ...
