    I just signed up for the notifications and it let me know you posted. I don't know what the deal is... Is it official? Do you have your mojo back?

    I love it when I get my mojo back! I can imagine you are excited about getting yours back. I love to go camping. Every time it amazes me that I can survive without being connected to everyone and everything. I don't need internet to exist... camping is a good reminder of that. Can't wait to see your pics!

    That hat is ADORABLE! I'm in this year too. I missed last year :-( My DD (just turned 2) is just now "letting" me crochet in peace. I already have 2 done, one that needs a border and ends weaved in, and another one on the hook.

    Hey Kathy I've discovered sewing and I'm in love. Was wondering if you'd take some sewn blankets and maybe some hair accessories for the older girls. I can hook you up on headbands and scrunchies

    2011 - 5th Annual Afghans for NICU Babies for Christmas

    I finally sat down to weave in the ends of the last few blankets I've finished (I always get excited about starting a new one and put off weaving in the ends.. its a bad habit) and I did a count of all the ones I have set aside for the babies... I have done 9 and I have 2 that were given to me by a friend that wanted them donated, for a total of 11 and we still have soooo much time

    2011 - 5th Annual Afghans for NICU Babies for Christmas

    So I just finished my 5th blankie. I have 3 preemie edgery doo'd fleece and 2 crocheted. Started 2 more, a tunisian and a ripple using this pattern I'm loving this stash busting for a GREAT cause! On a side note I got an awesome coupon from Joann's for $5 off any regular priced item, I couldn't pass it up. They didn't have the Caron One Pounders on sale so I got a pound of lavendar blue yarn for $3 ... all for the babies.

    Massive Crazy Patchwork Quilt

    .. or how to use up a bunch of scraps and turn it into something functional if not LOUD So I started on this blanket a year and a half ago. I wanted to use up a bunch of scraps cuz they take up so much space and when ends start coming out of the little balls you end up with yarn vomit in an array of lovely (or once lovely) colors. Its mindless crochet, all dc and a color change every 12 rows for 12 blocks (this is how it started out, then I had a bunch of little scraps that I made into a magic ball and went to town on a couple of strips). about 5 strips ago I had an idea to do an entire strip with just variegated colors and having 9 different ones I actually went out and purchased 3 more to make this strip come to life. I rationalized that I could use the few yards for the block and then make a premie ghan for NICU babies Anyway without further ado It's on our california king sized bed, and according to my lovely sis.."it doesn't matter if its loud, you sleep with your eyes closed"

    DSi Pocket

    My DH got a Kindle and I got a DSi. I made him a cozy for his and liked the look so much I made a smaller version for my DSi. DD liked mine so much she wanted one for her DSi, but she wanted hers to have a strap so she could wear it. I love being crafty DSi Pocket worsted weight yarn (2 colors) MO-EZ hook, green (*note I crochet insanely tight so you may be able to use a smaller hook) Gauge: 8 tss = 2 ½ inches 6 rows = 2 inches Tunisian Simple Stitch ch 13 Row 1: Pick up a loop in every chain til end (13 loops) / Basic Return Row (yo, pull thru one loop, yo, pull thru 2 loops until end) Rows 2-38: Pick up a loop in every vertical bar til end (13 loops on hook) / Basic Return Row Row 39: Insert hook thru next 2 vertical bars and pull up a loop (decrease), pull up a loop in each vertical bar until the last 3 stitches, insert hook in next 2 bars and pull up a loop, pull up a loop in last stitch (11 loops) / Basic Return Row Row 40: Repeat Row 39 (9 loops) Row 41: Buttonhole Row: Pull up a loop in each vertical bar for the first 3 sts at this point you will have 4 loops on hook, skip 2 bars and pull up a loop in each remaining stitch, you will have 7 loops on hook. / For this return row you will do the basic return row until you get to the skipped stitches, here you need to ch 2 then complete the return row. Row 42: Pick up a loop in every vertical bar until ch 2, here I just inserted my hook in the space making sure to go under the little length of yarn made my skipping the stitches and pull up a loop, then continue pulling up a loop in remaining vertical bars (8 loops) / Basic Return Row Row 43: Repeat Row 2 Row 44: Finish off Row : Insert hook in vertical bar and pull up a loop, pull loop thru loop already on hook (slip stitch), continue until end of row. If you are changing color, finish off. Finishing: Here I took the DSi and placed it where I wanted it on the strip and folded so I could see where the sides need to meet. Removing the DSi but keeping the strip where it needed to be I took a huge safety pin and pinned thru both sides of the strip. Take your 2nd color of yarn and sc around the kozy making sure to go thru both thicknesses on the sides. I started at the bottom of one side, up and around the flap and down the other side. You can fasten off and do a row of sc across the inside opening too if you prefer, I didn’t. Weave in ends and add a button. Enjoy

    2011 - 5th Annual Afghans for NICU Babies for Christmas

    I did a year-end look at my stash and my eyes bugged.. I have wayyy too much yarn (I know there is supposed to be no such thing) so I am going to give it my all to de-stash and bury you in blankets. I have enough fleece to make 12 baby blankets in varying sizes and finished my first blanket today (even got the ends weaved in). So I am hoping to get you 12 fleece blankets and hopefully double that in fully crocheted blankets. Might even get hats and scarves during the summer months. Setting my sights high but I think I can do it.. even with a new little one
