Once again I have a pattern that has been published on the online Magazine called Entwine. Its a gorgeous cowl/infinity scarf that works up easily and fast.
My favorite accessory to make is a cowl or infinity scarf. Its always great when you get a compliment on your outfit or scarf as it pulls it all together.
I have three cowls above that I have made patterns for and I will be realeasing the patterns in the next day or so! The good news for you is that I will offer the pattern up for one of these cowls for free for a short time and then officially add it to my ETSY store.
I will keep you all posted on how to get your free pattern as soon as I have it all set up.
Have a really great day/evening when you get to this post.
I am hoping this blog post finds you happy and enjoying your day/ evening. I thought that I would share something that I would have really appreciated when I first started crocheting – it’s a listing of the Master Crochet Abbreviations; found on the Craft Yarn Council website.
Although, I don’t remember exactly when this was but I can remember when a pattern I was trying called for something abbreviated to hdc – now I know immediately that it means a half double crochet. But initially, I didn’t know what that meant or how to do that stitch. It’s funny to me now as this is now one of my favourite stitches to use in my patterns and creations but back then I was at a complete loss.
Thankfully, I was able to find the info on the internet with pictures; so it was easy to follow along and learn this new stitch. Now this is my website of choice for many different resources for both knitting and crochet, plus a lot of really great information about yarn as well. I highly recommend browsing through this site as it’s a great way to gain knowledge about your craft and fiber needs.

I love to spend time going through anything crochet on Pinterest. Sometimes, I see such creative ideas that I just have to comment on them. I have found 2 pins that I just love and had to share!
Click on the images to take you directly to the pin!
What a great use of crochet to accent a light fixture. To think you could use either some crochet you have inherited or you could make your own.
There are so many other ways that you can create for your home and I have several pins in my Pinterest board called Crochet 4 the home (these pins will be added to this board). This image will take you to that pin as well. Its got step-by-step instructions and that in my books, is always great!
The second pin I found is truly another great idea. I may be unique in this but I really dislike it when the top I am wanting to wear is at the bottom of my closet because it has slid down off of my hanger. Here is a great idea to keep your clothing secure on those hangers and they look so great as well!
These hangers just add a bit of class to an otherwise boring closet, don’t you think?
Well there is my crochet meanderings for tonight, I hope you all have a great day!

With my love of crochet and knitting, I also have a love for yarn. I can spend literally hours in my local yarn store – touching, feeling and wondering what a skein would look best as.
Many months ago, I decided that I would like to start to offer up some great yarns and deals from my ETSY store. The first phase has just been launched and I have several selections that are available. The first yarn is a brand new DK weight yarn that comes in skeins of 270 yards (246 meters) and it comes in 4 color ways.
These yarns are truly vibrant and are a large skein; which can make a lot of different things either by knit or crochet.
I hope you will take a peek at my yarns as I add them along with other great new items I have to list.
