The Wednesday [Inspired] Snood

January 03, 2023 14 Comments
So... Yeah... I watched Wednesday on Netflix, and I noticed the crochet clothing and accessories. I really liked the snood that her friend gave her, and I figured that some awesome crochet designer had already come up with a pattern for it. And, of course, I was correct! And I was happy about it. I decided to follow the Enid’s Snood – Wednesday-Inspired Crochet Snood Free Pattern by The Loopy Lamb. She made the pink version of the snood, but I decided to make the black version that Wednesday wears. The pattern was very quick and easy to follow. For this pattern, you can either crochet with two strands of worsted yarn together, or you can use a bulky or super bulky yarn. I used the super bulky Bernat Softee Chunky yarn.

Seahawks Themes Christmas Tree 2022

December 27, 2022 0 Comments
For the past several years, I have decorated our Christmas tree with a Seahawks theme. I decorate it with blue tinsel garland, dark blue ornaments, green ornaments, silver icicles, and several Seahawks ornaments. I even crocheted a few Seahawks ornaments. Also, I place a crochet granny square tree skirt around the bottom of our Seahawks tree. I made the tree skirt with different shades of blue and green yarns. Usually, our tree is a prelit white tree with blue lights. However, this year.... We have a REAL Christmas tree. This is my frist time ever having real Christmas tree, even though my mom said her family had real trees when she was a kid; we never had a real tree. I always thought real trees were complicated and difficult, but they're not! You just need to water the darn thing! lol

Long Tail Snowman Scarf

December 12, 2022 16 Comments
When I think of winter, I think of snow. And boy did we have some snow a aouple weeks ago. There's still a little snow lingering on the ground. Whenever it snows, I just have to build a snowman. This time, I didn't feel like actually going outside in the snow, so I crocheted one instead! I've been wanting to make the Long Tail Frosty Scarf (pattern by Snappy Tots) for a while, and I'm so glad I finally got around to making it.

Upcycled Plaid Scarf Wreath

December 06, 2022 12 Comments
Here in Washington, the snow has really been snowing! So I decided that I needed a new winter wreath. I browsed Pinterest for some inspiration, and I found several cute scarf wreaths. My favorite was a pin for a green plaid scarf wreath that was also upcycled, and I also was inspired by a pin for holiday wreath that has different plaid fabrics. Why haven't I heard of scarf wreaths before!?!  Ideally, I would have liked to use a crochet or knit scarf to make a scarf wreath like in the pin I found for a super quick knit scarf wreath. But I when I started this project, I couldn't think of a scarf that I've already made that would be good for this project... But just now while I'm typing this, I thought of a denim knit scarf I made years ago that would've been perfect for this. I think it's in my closet somewhere, so when I find it, I might make another scarf wreath. ๐Ÿ˜ Anyhoo, I decided to upcycle a plaid dress my daughter outgrew awhile ago for this project.

Christmas Gnome Scarf

Yes, I'm back with ANOTHER gnome scarf! ๐Ÿ˜† I absolutely LOVE the Fall Gnome Scarf pattern by Heidi Yates/Snappy Tots, so after making a Fall Gnome Scarf just like the original pattern, I decided to change it up to create a Halloween Gnome Scarf. And Since Christmas is next month, I couldn't resist creating a couple Christmas Gnome Scarves! No, I couldn't make just one... I had to make two!
