The Bipolar Hooker?

So who does this???  I am moving right a long crocheting these adorable pumpkins (the pattern is here by the way!)
So pretty, and such crochet satisfaction!  Much faster than the knit ones, too!

I have even been cutting up sweaters and making little owlies, because they go so well with the pumpkins. 

Then Friday evening I get a hanker'in to make something....crochet of course.  I am pretty much blaming this on pinterest...pinning, and pinning some awesome crochet ideas.  

So what do I do???  

Now here comes the bi-polar part.

Are you ready????

Here it comes!

You got it!  I crochet up a Christmas Stocking.  How wacked am I!  Do others do this???  Actually, I couldn't help it.  I found a pattern that had a little picture of a striped stocking I liked, but when I started reading it, it was done flat then seamed together.  I didn't want that!  I wanted it in the round.  So, I just did it myself.  
It turned out so bright.  Mr. Snowman looks quite cute on it, too.  

So I ask, does this qualify for being all over the map??  One added piece of info, I have also been making scarves from recycled tee-shirts.  The daylight got away from me, so I have no pictures of the scarves...but I can tell you they are totally groovy!!!

I will be co-hosting a give away with http://www.simplysockyarn.typepad.com/,  
She will be giving away sock yarn along with my purse patterns, the contest is to start Monday.  

I have been scoping out her yarn and totally drooling!!! 

So my to do list has grown even longer.  Plus I have an afghan order to do, a sock monkey request, and helping a lady by making coffee filter roses for a birthday party.  My plate is full, and all I want to do is anything other than what I need to be doing!

Enjoy Your Week!
Dawn

I am totally bipolar too. I have so many things to make, yet I see something on Pinterest and I want to make that, too. You pumpkins, owl and purse are amazing. Great job.

Love the stocking. I bought some sweaters at a yard sale to make some pumpkins like yours. I love Pinterest. It's electronic hoarding!

istiose J3The stocking is fabulous with that black in it in chunks. You seem completely normal to me! :)

Looking forward to seeing your tee-shirt scarves.

You have the same affliction I have...crafting ADD. There is no cure, so just continue on the path your on.

Bipolar?.. Well, you might say so. I jump from crochet, to scrapbooking, to crochet, to painting, back and forth ALL THE TIME! I just love it ALL! Love all the beautiful pumpkins you've made here, and that stocking is ADORABLE!!!.. Have a great week! ~tina
