Busy Hands!!!

I'm here.  It has been so hard lately to just find the time to sit down and update my blog.  Where is the time going?  But, I have been busy crocheting, knitting, and spray painting in between working and doing the normal daily rigmarole.

Of course, I can always find some moments to make some little hooties!
They are for an etsy order, but I am enjoying them before they head off to their new home. 


So...I have finished up some more hats, some fingerless mitts, a pair of socks, and a scarf.  I can share some hats and mitts with you, and will have to get another pretty day to get pictures of my finished socks and scarf.

I came across this pattern for fingerless gloves called "Toast".  I love it!!!  It is a quick, easy, fun pattern.  I am going to remember it come Christmas project time!

Aren't they awesome!  This is with some Lion Brand Amazing.

My sister-in-law is modelling them for me.  I am pretty sure she needs a pair for herself.  LOL!

These are with the same pattern.  I just didn't finish the thumb and I did a ribbing on each end.

I have been in a crocheting hat mode for a little while now.  I think it is because of the instant gratification you can get from them.  And, you really don't need a pattern.  I love these little ear-flap hats!
.
 Oh, here is another pattern I came across.  It is called "Divine" .  Don't be fooled...it may look difficult, but I am here to tell you it is not!  With a pretty yarn it is really quite impressive!

Here is another chemo-cap done up in half-double crochet.  Our knitting group made some caps up for a lady one of the women knew who was going through some strong chemo.  

How about some thrift-store love???  
I am a freakin sucker for a piece of junk and a can of spray paint...especially red spray paint.  I wish I had taken a before picture.  I found this little cabinet at the Salvation Army for $1.50!!  Took it apart, sprayed it down.  The hardest part was getting it back together!!  The frosting on the cake is when I added the paper to the back.  

It is going to make a great home for my owl collection!!

Now I am off to enjoy what is left of this Sunday.  The time change has got me a little off, and I am really going to dread it in the morning!  But for the moment, all is good.  Time for a new knitting project!

Bye!

I made some fingerless gloves with that same yarn and loved it too. So fun to watch the colors shift, isn't it?

I found your blog by chance and has been quite a find.
You're an artist crochet, wool and needles.
Congratulations on that gift.
