    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.

    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

    Here are a few new hats I crocheted recently for Warmth for Warriors. I used a new method on the brim of crocheting all FPDC. The pattern and details can be found here if anyone wants to make the hat. Works up quickly and the new brim tightens up nicely for a good fit.

    I got the new Crochet World the other day and DH saw this turtle. We have a friend who has had a turtle from a baby. Remember the kid you or your kids got? Well she still has hers. This pattern is using ww yarn and it is 14 1/2 inches long. I made it in thread and it is about 7 inches long, from head to tail. Took only a couple of days to make it, but I am sure it can take just one, this small one anyway.

    Well, here are two little pups I have been working on. I made the light colored one and then decided I needed the 12mm noses. So I ordered some and the second one has the nose. Now they will be leaving soon for their new home. They are from a kit from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Crochet-Dogs-Adorable-Projects-Lovers/dp/1684124972 They are 4.5" tall and 4" long. I bought the kit, because it had a Dalmatian. They also have a cute pug and schnauzer. So here are the boys.

    On New Year's Day we were at Disney World's Animal Kingdom Lodge having lunch at one of our favorite restaurants and then went to some of the other resorts to see the decorations and gingerbread buildings and carousel. We saw a girl carrying a small crocheted Baby Yoda and of course my daughter immediately said to me "you can make one of those for me, right?" A pinterest search led me to this pattern: https://tokenandbliss.com/babyyoda/ and here is my daughter's Baby Yoda

    hope to follow along this year. I plan to donate a lot of craft items to our "Redeemed Goods" store. I hope to make some wreathes and such things. I can do crafting if not crochet I did make this one from a pic on Pinterest and donated:

    Starting to get settled in to our new home at a senior community. Prayer shawl ministry meets across the street from me. Just finished this one. They want rectangular 24 by 60 inches. This used up some old Red Heart Wintuk in Pebble with a little I Love This Yarn in Greybeard. Stitch pattern is Jamie from this baby set. https://m.lionbrand.com/item/313435353231 This pattern works really well to adapt it to work from center out and if you do it that way there is no need to add a border.

    My GD's dog won the Cutest Dog contest at the local fro-yo shop out of 50 dogs entered. They offer puppy frozen yogurt (non-dairy) and she loves it. This is just one of her photos used in the contest with the scarf I made her and her pose when she's told to "be cute".

    I forgot to take a pic of the cat toys I made for my GS's 2 kittens so he took one for me. The mice were easy and quick to make. I chose not to put eyes on the grey mouse since the other 2 wound up looking like zombie mice. LOL. The blue toy is made with a piece cut from a paper towel tube, then stuffed. It has a tail on the other side with a small bell on the end. I closed both ends of the toy since I wanted to stuff it to keep it's shape. Patterns: Mouse, Blue Toy

    This is my Bob Ross moment... I'm giving my gnirly gnome a happy little friend. I love making these gnomes and everyone seems to love them - sort of a throw back to "Precious Moments" but with noses instead.

    I finished the praying hands throw....hubby chose the colors and asked for the cross to be added to it... Placing it on the floor gave me plenty of distance to show off the pattern.

    Just thought I'd share my latest mini stockings I have been working on for Warmth for Warriors. I call these the camo series with several different patterns all using a small leftover skein of SS camo and some green yarns for trim.

    Looks like I can't get enough of them... One of my favourite: Klaziena shawl Free pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/klaziena-shawl Geometrica - a shawl for my brother 's wife. Pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/geometrica-shawl Kalinda shawl (another one for me). Free pattern: https://mycrochetory.com/kalinda-shawl-free-crochet-pattern/ And the biggest one - also for me. Transkokonkinental shawl. Amazing pattern by 6 designers. Not the easy one. I made it during free CAL. The name is combination of words: transcontinental and Kokonki - the name of company that produces yarns. Free pattern: https://kokonki.pl/pl/i/TransKOKONKInental-Shawl/30 For all these shawls I used my own choice of color, blend of cotton and acrylic, from Kokonki.

    I totally love this technique for making a wreath with the cheap vinyl tablecloths. I have the 'cloths' to make a circle one in 4 different colours/patterns but I saw this gingham and wanted to try it. I recommend the "Sissy can do it" version on You Tube - I find her easy to follow and she is so down home. I do 'see' the gingham in this - no , really

    I just realized that I didn't share the two baby blankets that I crocheted for Kathryn's NICU drive. She hasn't posted on Crochetville but I emailed her and see is doing the baby blanket drive again this year through Facebook. Here are the blankets I sent her recently.

    Not likely, that's only (about) half the diameter the pattern calls for. You are probably going to have a hard time wrangling the yarn, and then undoubtedly will end up with a sheet of cardboard-stiff fabric instead of something fluffy. Good grief, I just looked the yarn up--absolutely this hook is too small. This will be a very difficult yarn to work with in the first place because of the extreme thick and thin (I imagine it will be really hard to see your stitches even with the bigger hook), so...no.

    This is the last dress for this dolly. I made 2 Cowgirls outfits, with hats and boots. 2 Native American Indian outfits and I thought it would be great to have a Cinderella type dress. This doll will be going to Bailey4 for her charity.

    The pattern states the dimensions, width is 35.5". For the swatch, chain 6". This will result in a square slightly less than 6", but the point was just to be more than 4" to avoid the edge stitches, so should be OK. Work back in pattern, you will have a few chains hanging off the end probably but don't worry about it. Based on your swatch, figure out how wide 1 stitch is - don't measure 1 stitch, measure across the 4"--example, if your gauge is spot on, 18 sts=4", so 4 divided by 18 is .22222". 35.5" divided by .22 is 161.36 stitches. I would chain, say, 170 (notice the pattern says 164, which I looked at after I picked 170 out of the air - I picked a number that I knew would be slightly too many. Reason: your may not hit gauge exactly, and you need to think the same way -- you can pick out extra chains after working back (the piece will not unravel) and it's better than being to conservative and having to start over. Don't worry about the stitch count matching the pattern repeat, just figure a rough number and add a few extra, and work back to the nearest pattern repeat, and pick out the extra chains later & weave in the end. edit- meant to add, I used the pattern gauge, but you will need to do some math on YOUR gauge to figure out a ballpark number to chain, plus a few extra. Fun fact: I've seen really vintage patterns (circa 1900) not say 'chain x', but rather 'make a chain x inches long, turn, xyz instructions for working back, cut off the excess chain'. Eek! But older patterns didn't spell everything out like like modern patterns, it was assumed the crocheter knew what they were doing to get the result they were after, and didn't need to be told how to finish it off properly.

    Beautiful work, Ladies! I just finished this small baby ghan (keeping it in case there's a need- I always seem to be caught short) I made it using donated yarn (thank you!) except for the deep rose I already had in stash. It'll drape better after a wash

    Birthday candy-whale, anyone? 🐳🎂 Here are the baby whales I made for my daughter. Well, I made many more - I stopped at 80 - and very soon they will find their new homes. More pics here: https://forum.crochetville.com/topic/162464-birthday-baby-whales/

    My granddaughter wanted me to paint her a flower for her bedroom. It is a small painting on canvas. I used acrylic paint. I scanned that and those colors did not came out right . Those colors looking a lot more muted than they really are. Now I just need to frame that. Krys

    I'm sooo proud! Here I introduce to you my daughter's FIRST SERIOUS CROCHET WORK! She will be 9 in a month and had tried crocheting before, but never succeeded - until now! One day she wanted to try making a chain and when we had many metres of it I showed her how to make scs. As I was making baby whales for her class (that's another story), she decided to make one too. And here it is. I'm proud, my daughter is proud, all the family and friends are proud 😁 Oh happy day 😁 The pattern is free from the site www.letscrochet.org

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone. I love this time of the year. Lights and (old time) tinsel. Cookies, Fruit Cake ( yeah I love it) and lots of good smells in the air. Right now we even have some cool crisp air for Florida. I remember as a kid the many things going on at home. It never failed, the day we decided to put the lights up outside, it was the coldest day, but we knew Mom would have hot chocolate waiting for us and Dad would make his vegetable beef soup with HOME made bread. One year we had a machine that had a tube up the middle of the tree and when it was turned on, Styrofoam pebbles would fall all over the tree like snow. There was a large tub under the tree to catch it. That went out, when me and my oldest sister shot the stuff at each other when we were taking it down. Our last real tree was the year my brother was home from the Navy and he went for a real tree. Beautiful till we took it down. By the time we got it out the door, there was not a needle on it. They were all over the floor. I have a million of fun stories from my childhood, when life was easier for us kids anyway. Tell me some of your favorite stories.

    I finished this project last night. I already had all the supplies except the trees and the bell so it cost me $3 total from the Dollar Tree. I may put a string of tiny lights around the base if I can find them. I couldn't find any boots so, I used a vase that looks like a tree trunk. The whole thing measures about 24 inches tall. Link for instructions: https://diycuteness.com/diy-tree-gnomes/ ETA: Hahaha, looks like he's leaning a bit! Fixed.

    I found a pattern for woodland animals, Santa & Mrs. Clause. They were all suppose to be done in ww yarn, but for me 4" was to big, so I made them in size 10 thread. I made the little angel with the candles on her head in size 3 thread. Something new for my tree.
