Super Excited!

Hello my crochet friends!

I have some very exciting news from earlier this week that I just have to share! Two of my patterns were selected by the magazine – A Needle Pulling Thread – to be published in the fall and winter editions.

You can find the magazine online at A Needle Pulling Thread. Here is a picture of their current edition.

If you havent heard of this magazine, I highly recommend it. It features everything from quilting to knitting and so much more. Within the pages of this magazine, you can choose from a large selection of crafts that are all gorgeous and beautiful. I even found a little look back into my history and found some hardanger; which until I discovered it in the magazine – I had thought it was a lost art. As a teenager, I remember my Mother once telling me she had wished she learned this beautiful craft – as its not found often.

I believe creativity or crafting is a journey and through this one either ends up dabbling in everything or like me, you end up settling on one as your main craft. I can remember my early crafting days filled with embroidery, needlepoint, knitting and crocheting.

My patterns will be in the Fall and Winter Editions and of course, I will be super excited to send another post as those magazine editions come out. I am so grateful for this opportunity. I truly feel blessed!

I hope this finds you all healthy and enjoying some crochet or whatever craft you’re loving on this fine day.

Thanks and have a great day!

Crocheting and Coughs

Hello Friends,

We had these amazing plans for this weekend but around mid-week, I came down with a nasty cold and the part that always gets me is the coughing; especially at night when one is supposed to get the rest needed to get over the darn thing in the first place. However, my husband and I prevailed and we went up to our little bit of paradise on Friday and by the time we got there, the 3 of us were at various stages of the cold.

The worst of which was my granddaughter – who at 3 – ends up with the roughest go – in my opinion as kids can’t take much except some tylenol. There are no cold meds for kids under six here which is probably a blessing in disguise. But when your little one is in the midst of a croup type cough and fever, you sure wish there was something that would help besides tylenol. My husband found some cough syrup that she likes (probably out of sheer desparation that she can take, although the effectiveness is suspect at this point).

So our long weekend is done and we are back home snuggled in our woolies and I have a couple of crochet projects – soon to be patterns to show you. I hope to have these written up & finished this week and can post them for you to all enjoy!

Here is the first, which is done in a beautiful chunky Bernat yarn in a color I normally wouldn’t choose but I really like it done up. I would sure love some ideas on names for it.

The second is also done up in the same yarn, but in a gorgeous light blue. Its a new stitch pattern for me but a really easy one to master. It makes such a great infinity scarf and it will be super warm and soft against the neck.

I hope everyone’s week is good and the cold bug stays away from you!

Crochet 4 the Home from Pinterest

Hello all,

I am a passionate crocheter and with that, I love to not only create; but also look at other creations and go on what I like to call “Pin hunts”. LOL!

I usually spend a lot of time on Pinterest – marvelling at the creativity and absolute ingenious creations out there.

Here are four pins that I think are incredible!

 

 

 

 

There is nothing better than having a nice rug to help you get the chill out of your tooties! I do not care for cold feet so this looks like a great rug for that!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now isn’t this just an awesome idea? I think these might be in the near future of me crocheting for my butterflys’ toys (did I mention she has wayyyyy too many)…  lol

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not that I am the greatest cook but I think this creation below is fabulous! I am thinking that it could be delivered for a friend who is recovering from a flu bug or cold…


 

 

 


 

 

 

 

I am just totally fascinated by the below creations. Perhaps, it’s because I honestly hate my lighting fixture in my dinning room but I think this is a huge wow!

 

 

 

 
 

Which one is your favorite? I love to hear from you all anytime!

Box Stitch or Corner 2 Corner (C2C)

Hello, my crafty friends!
 
One of my absolute favorite crochet stitches to use is the Box Stitch or Corner to Corner (C2C), but I have a question when did it become the C2C name? I have heard it as different names over the years and I can see why from a purely technical point of view why was the C2C name adopted?

 

 

Many years ago my Aunt taught me the stitch and I immediately fell in love with the beauty of the stitches and how it looks like the shells like one is sideways and on top of the other.  I can specifically remember asking my Aunt then what is this stitch pattern called?  She didn’t know so instead of worrying I happily kept crochet along with my new skill.

 

I was literally just starting on my journey of loving crochet. But every once in a while I would try to find the name but always seemed to come up empty. Then finally I was thrilled to see on a blog that I followed a name for this beautiful stitch and it was coined the box stitch, so after finding a name that made sense to me (as the stitches do resemble boxes) that is what I went by and excitedly told my Aunt and we both had an ahhh moment because that was a perfect name in our minds.

 

 
 
I went on to do tutorials and searches on the internet for the box stitch and found only a couple of them was a named loosely translated from the Spanish stitch called the crazy shells stitch. Even this name I could understand as it does look like the shells have gone crazy (lol).
 
From a pure technical perspective you do start at a corner and then work diagonally across the rows but then shouldn’t the name be more like diagonal crochet?
 
I am curious and would love to hear your thoughts on the name, and what do you think best suits this stitch technique?

  • The Box Stitch
  • The Crazy Shells Stitch
  • or lastly, C2C?

 
I have a couple of patterns that I do a modified version of the Box Stitch.
