    Knit Jeans Scarf

    I am always shopping for yarn, and during one of my trips to Joann, I discovered Lion Brand Jeans yarn. I instantly fell in love with this yarn, which comes in different shades of denim. Near the yarn, I also found several free patterns. The pattern for this scarf is called the Jeans Kassidy Scarf.  For this scarf, I used the Jeans yarn in shades Brand New, Stonewash, and Faded. These are the same shades used in the pattern, but Lion Brand Jeans yarn has other colors that you can use as well. I used about a half a ball of each.

    Crochet Pancake Scarf


    As I've said before, I am a huge fan of the crochet designer Twinkie Chan. I adore her food themed scarves, and I've made many of them. I own both her books (Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for the Fashion Foodie and Twinkie Chan's Crochet Abode a la Mode), and I admire her creativity. I really enjoy her breakfast themed scarves. I've made her Buttered Toast Scarf (I even made matching gloves) and the Bacon and Eggs Scarf. There was one scarf I really wanted to make, but the pattern wasn't available. So I had to figure it out on my own, which wasn't too hard...

    Painted Canyon Sawyer Scarf

    When I first learned how to crochet, all I made were blankets... Granny square blankets. But over the years I've become more adventurous with crochet, and I like to keep it fun and funky! A few months ago, I stumbled upon the Sawyer Scarf by @SierraCrochetCrafts, and I knew I just had to try the pattern soon! I fell in love with the scarf, and I knew it would look great with a variegated yarn! And I knew my favorite yarn (Painted Canyon by I Love This Yarn) would be perfect for this pattern.

    Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop: Cactus Pillow

    Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to create/make Crochet Cactus Pillow since I've been inspired by all the many cacti I've posted on my Crochet Corner: Cactus board.

  • Crochet Flowering Cactus

    Tomorrow is the first day if spring, and I thought I'd do some spring planting... However, I do not have a green thumb, so instead, I decided to crochet some cacti. The cactus is everywhere, and I'm loving it. After seeing several crochet cactus creations, I decided to make some of my own. I am a collector of Rae Dunn pottery, and I decided that my Rae Dunn planters definitely needed some crochet cacti.
