Latest FO's

I have been bitten a little bit by the crochet bug, just finished a cute little clutch purse out of the "Happy Hooker" and am starting the "Fat bottom bag" out of the same book. I learned how to crochet years ago, from my grandmother, but forgot how to half-double crochet. Went to the Knitwitch, and she has great videos, she does it slow and clearly enough, that you can stitch right along with her. Wonderful resource. I also made (knit) a quick plastic bag holder. See my Ravelry projects for where I got this, I apologize I don't have that info here. Might use this in my camper, too. Have you seen the new skeins of Sugar n' Cream. They are on steroids! They are a whopping 710 yards. I found my two at Micheal's for $7.99 and with a 40% off coupon, they are a steal. Also picked up a little pamphlet with lots of cute ideas. Everything from a bathmat, to dishcloths, to market totes. Fun summertime knitting or crocheting!!

Here is that clutch purse with some cute vintage buttons. Wanted to make a loom flower like the pattern calls for, but went to Micheals and Hobby Lobby, and neither one had anything like it. Just the big looms. The people at Micheals didn't even know what I was talking about. Does anyone know where I can get one. It needs to have two rows of pegs on the same circle. One larger and one smaller. Any online sources would be nice if you know them. Thanks.

The bag does look too cute! That's a good deal on the cotton - I found the cutest knitting pattern for a throw rug holding 4 strands of that cotton. That would be the way to go - get those bigger sizes!

The bag is cute as can be!
I love all of those buttons, too! They're beautiful. I haven't seen the new skeins of S&C; I'll need to check them out. Thanks for the tip.

Thank you for your comment on my recent post. That is the most that I have shared about myself and glad you appreciated it. :)

I see I am on your side bar ~ how fun! :) Isn't it crazy how many great people we meet in cyberspace!

I love your crochet purse! I got a book to show me how as a recovery present. I am going to go on the sight that you mentioned and watch when I do it!

Glad to "meet" you :)
