Found my crochet mojo!

I think my creative crochet mojo has cranked up to full gear.  I have been happily crocheting roosters this week!  And check out the peace sign!  Found a little pattern for it on ravelry.  When I saw it I knew I had to use it! 
This was some leftover yarn I had from a pair of fingerless mitts.  It made a great little rooster. 
This little peace sign takes all of ten minutes to crochet up.  You can find the pattern here

Oh, but there is more!

Whatcha think?  The flowers are so fun to crochet up.  I placed one on the top rooster for his tail...it was so freakin groovy I couldn't stand it!
Fancy Rooster!  LOL....I made his legs black and tied bows on them. 
It's so "folk artish"!  I've grown attached to these.  I did gift one of them last week.  It wasn't easy!  I was thinking about putting them in my etsy shop but that is as far as it has gotten.  I will make them up on request. 

Yesterday I grabbed two balls of the Lion Brand Amazing and crocheted up a Queen Anne's Lace scarf.  I think this is one of my favorite scarf patterns. 
Doesn't it work up pretty in this yarn!!  I have one I made last year out of Noro that I wear all the time.  If you haven't tried crocheting one up, I recommend it!  I made this one up in an evening.  You can find the pattern here.

I am now crocheting up the Luna Scarf and am enjoying it.  I'll be back next week with pictures of it.

Usually I do not like roosters or chickens of any sort. That being said, your roosters are so adorable! Never thought I'd hear myself say such a thing (we had chickens when I was growing up...let's just say I was flogged by a rooster...not fun), but yours really are! :)

Oh, I absolutely love the rooster! Of course, I partial to all things chicken. I knit, but can't quite figure out crochet. I'm inspired to take a class just to make the chicken you show!

I found your blog through melbatoast68.

Your scarf is so pretty in that yarn. Love the way the colors just flow. I must try it. Thanks. Of course, your roosters are always a dream! Love how you made them in this hanging design with hearts and flowers, just adorable!

I was wondering about the Rooster/Peace sign piece you did. I found the spool of hanging thread to be most interesting. Does this relate to a Folk Tradition of times past, or was it an Artistic Flair addition as a weight to hold the piece from flying around in the wind?
