  3. I wasn't sure where to put this guy, but since he is for St. Patrick's Day, I figured what the heck. This was a free pattern for the leprechaun outfit. If you don't have the Santa, it is hard to make this one. He was fun and the hair was a challenge. All that orange. I thought he looked like Cousin IT from the Adams family, Tampa Guy thought he looked like Haggred from Harry Potter. That is before his haircut. He got a nice haircut and his had with a shamrock on the side.

  6. After much hand-holding and very good advice, I finished my first afghan for the Crochetville Charity Drive! It's 24" from peak to peak, makes my eyes go a little wonky with all the contrast, and doesn't have the holes in the peaks that I dislike so much. I'm starting on my next one, maybe with only 2 colors and bigger stripes. I used Michael's Soft n Shiny (https://www.michaels.com/soft-and-shiny-yarn-loops-and-threads/M10273080.html) in Aqua/White/Black and some gray acrylic worsted weight from my stash. Oh, and I used an H hook. It's CroJulee's Jacobs Ladder Round Ripple Afghan

  7. Dear Crochetville Members, I'm back. I'm sorry I was gone so long. I hope you'll join me in rejuvenating Crochetville into the buzzing hive of crochet goodness that it once was. Now that I'm back, I cannot believe how much I missed this place and didn't realize it. I love the sense of community here and I love that a handful of dedicated members kept this place alive when I was lost. To those of you⁠—and you know who you are⁠—I owe so much. As for Amy and I, our paths diverged and we got involved in other projects. For Amy, it was Sparkle Studio, her studio/shop in Lowe Mill ART

  8. This is the 3rd of my four seasons wedding gowns. it is fussy and a bit challenging but very pretty when done. I'm sorry I can't get better pics. A balcony is nice but it cuts out most of the sunlight. The PDF is Here: SpringWedding.pdf Here are a couple of pics of the hat for better viewing. they are not in the PDF though

  9. I have a neighbor who is a big baseball fan and his team is the Tampa Bay Rays. He was a big help during and after the hurricane. I wanted to give him a little thank you. The colors are Navy and Royal blue with white and a yellow star. I got the graph on Free Graphs on FB. The edging is 6 rows of dc. 2 rows of each color, except the yellow.

  14. My SIL's youngest granddaughter is having a baby. The theme is Llama's or Alpaca. I made a blanket and a stuffy for her. The blanket is 3 by 2 panels. Each panel is 13 1/2 by 14 inches, that is 70 stitches by 80 rows. With the edging the blanket comes out to be 28 by 43 1/2. The stuffy is 12 inches from the toes to the top of the ears. Each panel can be an afghan in itself, if you use c2c instead of single crochet.

  15. For a new year my aunt gave me this beautiful forest decoration. Wood and cones are from her garden. First there were only an owl and a squirrel. My aunt told me there was also a deer in the pattern but she didn't made one. SO we had some talking... 😁 and now deer lives in my "forest" too 🦌

  20. I have been trying to used up my cotton yarn. The little that I have. Anyway, I made a sunflower scrubbie to go with my basket and everyone liked it. So I decided to make a couple more and then decided to try and make some dish cloths. Now my problem is where I can find good homes for them. Oh well that will happen later.

  21. I had several older skeins of Fun Fur in my stash and when I came across this pattern, decided to make one for each of my great grands for Christmas. The eyes, claws and body shape are just a tad different, but all in all, I think they will like them. Fur Bird pattern

  22. I neglected to share these and the story behind them here so better late than never. After an aunt passed away a few years ago I inherited her yarn. Dad had given her mom's yarn when she passed away 20+ years earlier. When going through it I found 4 boxes, my name in one and my other 3 sisters names in the others. Each box had about 40 squares in them including some our mom had made. My other aunt had told me I would be finding these. I could tell which ones my mom made and which ones my aunt made as my aunt was left handed. I checked to see if my sisters wanted their box of squares

  27. It is the dog days of August. As I sit here in my AC and listen to the cicada bugs, I know it is very hot and humid out there. Can you imagine wearing these cloths in August? Even the thought of it makes me hot. I love the movie Gone With the Wind. Several characters are my favorite. Starting with Mammy in her red petticoat, Prissy along with her "I don't know nothing about birthin no babies". Then the always sweat Melonie with her baeu Ashley. Let's not forget Scarlette and little Bonnie Blue. All these Southerners are fun, but lets put a couple Yankee's in. Namely Rhett and

  29. I made this small mat with the remaining skein of the RHSS Stripes from the unicorn I made for my niece. I figure she can use it with her dolls. But wow! I may need to go against my no yarn buying pledge except to finish WIPs and make a full size blanket. This just makes me smile.

  30. I finished dd’s afghan. This is a project that I started back in 2009, when I first started to crochet. I quickly got bored with it and mostly ignored it. A few months ago, I decided that I needed to finish some long standing WIPs. This is one of them. I apologize for the poor picture. (I’m not a photographer!). It’s in the washer at the moment, hope it comes out ok. I figured that a project that old definitely needs a trip through the washer! the color in the picture isn’t quite true to life, this looks a bit yellow, and it’s really a creamy white. ( Its the color clothing manufac
