Crafty Corner: Ladybug & a Scarf

Two crafty posts in as many weeks. It must be a miracle. Or my determination to become more consistent with my posting schedule. And I’ve finished two projects in the last week.

When I posted last week, I was almost finished with the ladybug I was crocheting. I finished it later that day.

When I finished that project, I started a scarf pattern I found on lionbrand.com. The Tidewater Lace Scarf actually called for Cotton-Ease yarn, which I do not have any of. I did have a ball of Caron Simply Soft yarn(ok, I have more than 1). I thought that would work nice too. Since You work over the same pattern rows until it reaches a certain length, I wasn’t too worried about gauge. I worked on it for 6 days, a total of about 11.5 hours. It did turn out nice, even though I messed up a couple times on the pattern.

I’m planning on starting my next project today, this hat. I thought it was really cute when I was browsing through ravelry. Hopefully I’ll have something to show for it when I post next week.

Crafty Corner: Catching Up

I haven’t done one of these posts for a while, so I decided it was time to catch up on some of the projects I’ve finished recently.

I started this lapghan toward the end of last year. I probably would have finished it then but I ran out o the one color of yarn I needed. I didn’t get a chance to get more of that yarn until the end of January. So,it sat that whole month. I finally finished it earlier this month.  It took me a total of over 75 hours to finish it. Not sure I’ve ever been so happy to finish a project.

While I was waiting to get the yarn I needed for the lapghan, I made this long stocking hat in green and white

And when I finished the lapghan, I made this cowl. The pattern calls itself the “45 minute cowl”. It took me 90 minutes. That doesn’t count the times I had to go back and start over. I somehow got it twisted though. Not sure where I messed it up.

And now, I’m making this ladybug. Not quite finished yet, but I just have to sew on the legs and spots and do the mouth and antennae.
