Crochet Swim Cover

A friend gifted me some lovely fingerling yarn but I do not (yet) knit, so I decided to use it for a swim cover with teeny tiny crochet stitches. Ok, so maybe they aren’t that teeny tiny, but for me they were. It was exceptionally relaxing to be honest. I would like to try it in colors that I’m more accustomed to wearing, but these colors look festive for the beach anyway!

Star Hearts

I enjoy Valentine’s Day with our family because it falls between two birthdays and we’ve come to a general agreement that no big deal will be made from it. Still, we participate in the school exchanges and sugar coma’s. My husband finds a nice card that has become something to look forward to.

I’m playing around with making little crochet hearts. I wanted them for Valentine’s Day card embellishments, so they each only take a few minutes to crochet. I also made Valentine goodie bags this year and I’ll probably sew a few of the babies on them. Have fun with this quick and simple project!

Laugh ‘Till You Cry Emoji Pillow Crochet Pattern

Having teens in the house can sure “spice” up many aspects of life. One of these things for me was that I have made some unique projects that would have never touched my hook without the, uh, inspiration from my girls! Thus, let me introduce the Laugh ‘Till You Cry Emoji Pillow –

It’s bold, it’s cheery, and it’s (my favorite) seamless! This pattern uses continuous rounds to avoid that irritating seam that joins give us. The pillow portion of this pattern is great to have on hand for any project up your sleeve! You can find it on Ravelry or Etsy.
