Today seems like one of those days where I spend longer untangling my yarn than I actually do crocheting. And sadly, that isn't me being clever, it is the truth. I was hoping to try out some new stitches and make myself, and possibly a friend of mine a headband to wear to yoga. The last time I went the little one I wore kept falling off and it was more annoying than practical. So hopefully, if I can ever get my yarn unravelled, I will post pictures of it/them soon. As far as other things go, I have been working on a few things, but have lost/broken all of my sewing needles, so finishing up amigurumi is kind of on hold until I get to the craft store to pick up some more.

I have been working on this Saw Billy from the Saw movies for a little while now. I have finished everything on it, just have not sewn it together yet. 

Coming up soon, but not really that soon, I have begun working on what I hope will turn out to be a Dexter Morgan Kill Room Playset. This is going to be the most challenging thing I have made so far and it is going to take a really long time, but I think it could be amazing in the end. So, stayed tuned for that and hopefully a lot more in the future!

 
I've been working on a few new things lately. Slowly but surely getting all of the things I've been putting off for weeks completed.  It is funny how I can have so much to do and so little at the same time. Actually I'm more concerned about the risks of carpal tunnel with the amount of crocheting I've been doing lately. Not sure if one can actually cause the other, but I have wondered.  I'm finally almost finished with the blanket I am making for myself (I never make anything for myself), too bad it is no longer winter, but I will still snuggle up with it on the couch. I will be posting pictures of that blanket, along with the pattern I am using for it pretty soon here. 
I'm working on a Saw Billy for a friend, the little puppet that rides into the room on a tricycle in the Saw movies. I also have a lion hat that I need to finish, not for anybody in particular, I just started making it months ago and never got around to finishing it. I always have a million little projects going on at the same time. Just thought I would give everybody a little bit of an update. Hopefully I will have pictures of the Saw Billy up in a few days. I hope everyone has a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day tomorrow!
 
Hello everybody, this is my first blog post. I hope everyone enjoys reading the things to come and comes back often to see how things are going. Since some of you may not be familiar with me or my crochet work quite yet, I will share a few things about myself as well as a few of my favorite items I have made so far. My name is Veronica, I am 24 and currently a stay at home mom. I enjoy a lot of things including cooking, crocheting, singing (anything involving music really), and collecting rubber duckies. So, it is possible you will see a few duckies and possibly recipes on occasion, and I will attempt to keep them somewhat organized for you. 

A Few Cute Little Hats!

Over the winter I got a chance to do a few very adorable hat projects. Now that winter is over I most likely will not get to crochet any more hats for a while, but still wanted to share a couple of my favorites.  That is my daughter, Violet, modeling the hat in the top left and bottom picture.  The top left picture is a custom Minnie Mouse hat I made for a friend. The top right picture, is a custom Black Spiderman Hat that I made for the same friend. The bottom picture is a custom Foofa (from Yo Gabba Gabba) hat I made for my daughter. All of these hats were of my own design, patterns may possibly come soon if anyone is interested. 

Amigurumi

Here are a couple of my favorite crocheted amigurumi. As with the hats, all of these were also all of my own design and I did not use a pattern. On occasion I will use a pattern for things, but I will specify if a pattern has been used and link to said pattern on here.  The top left is a red Dr. Who Dalek that I made for a friend. The top right is Homer Simpson in his underwear drinking a Duff beer, also for a friend. The bottom is a custom Steely Mc. Beam that I made and sold.  Most of the features on my amigurumi are done in felt. 

Unique Scarves

These are just a couple of the unique scarves that I have made. The first (left), is a Circuit Board Scarf I made for a friend. I love the way it turned out, but it was a lot of work and there will most likely not be any replicas in the future. The second (right) on the other hand, is a Hello Kitty Scarf I made and sold. This one I would love to do again, so just let me know if you are interested in one.  Also, ignore the horrible picture of me.  As with the hats, I probably won't get to make a whole lot more scarves until fall comes around again, but I can't wait!

Blankets

I love making baby blankets. This is how I started off crocheting. My grandma taught me how to make a granny square blanket when I was about 7 and that is where it all started.  The one on the left is a Yellow and Pink Bobble Stitch blanket with Ruffled Edges. That one as well as everything else you are seeing on this first post is of my own pattern. The second is a custom Blessed Be Man (a fantastic band, look him up on Facebook) for a friend. This one is all single crochet's and I charted out the pattern. This was my first blanket of this type and I love how it turned out. 

Well, that is just a little bit of what I have done recently. Thank you to everybody who stuck this post through to the end, I appreciate it. Check back for a lot more posts in the future!
