Christmas projects

I made this scarf for my really good friend, Candice.  I used the Kite stitch scarf pattern by Caron, Bernat Chunky yarn and a 9mm crochet hook.

This pattern was a little mundane but it turned out really nice, and was very simple.  A great project for sitting in front of the T.V.  I definately plan on making more of these.

This scarf I made for my step mom.  I Used Bernat Harmony and I believe a 9mm hook.

I did simple hdc lengthwise until it was as long as I wanted it then continued until it was as wide as I wanted it.  I also did a spike stitch in the center so it wasn’t so plain.

I used the FANtastically Soft Scarf pattern for this scarf.  My step mothers partner recieved it, and loved it.. which I am glad because I wasn’t quite sure if she was into scarves.

I used the same Bernat chunky yarn and 9mm sized hook.  Easy pattern, and again this is a good one to make while you are watching a movie or t.v.. “auto-crochet mode” as I call it lol.  The finished scarf had a really nice texture to it and was also nice and warm.  I will definately be making this one again.

Surgery and Swap items

I have been pretty busy the last few days. I got a call from the hospital to meet with the anesthesiologist on tuesday and then today I had to meet with the opthomologist for a pre-op appointment. Apparently I am having surgery on the 24.. which is this coming tuesday. I just found out yesterday when it was. The doctors office called my grandmother at the end of October and she never mentioned it. I am having serious issues with this.
Fist I will say, I LOVE my grandmother dearly. She is my mother, she raised me, she has been there for me when I have needed her, she loves me unconditionally. However, she is a major control freak, which is why I moved out when I was 17.
So yeah, I’m having my second cataract surgery on tuesday. It would have been nice to know a couple weeks ago but c’est la vie I guess…..

So like I said before, I recieved my swap package. I got spoilt. She sent me a really pretty hat and scarf set,
a really pretty purse and bookmark,
and lastly I got a package of truffles(YUM!), 4 balls of yarn, a handwritten note, a pack of Prisma coloring pencils and a calender with 365 crochet stitches in it. I had alot of fun with this swap.

Another Swap Done

DCFC0010I finished my items for the Scarf Swap at Crochetville and last week I mailed them off.DCFC0002
This was the first time I had attempted cables and I have to say that I love doing them and can’t wait for an excuse to make something else with them. I made this scarf with Bernat Softee Chunky in natural and a 9mm sized hook. It took only 2 days to finish. I will post the pattern when I find what I wrote out.

This scarf I made using Lionbrand Homespun and a 9mm hook. DCFC0004I cannot remember the name of the color, but it is a really pretty blue with tones of turqoise and other pretty shades of blue. I just did either *hdc, ch1*, or just hdc, length-wise until I got a width I thought was good enough.

DCFC0006I also made her a bear using the Monique Bear Pattern. I seriously LOVE this pattern.
I also sent some dried berries and some vanilla tea, which she likes.
I had alot of fun with this swap. I got my package from her but I will post pictures tomorrow when I figure out how to get them off my new phone.. which I will also take pics of to show off how purdy it is =D.
