Just Be Happy

Sunday, September 6, 2009

Holiday weekend and we are at home, which is not bad considering that I have hubby here spending time with us (plus the weather is horrible!), which also means that I can crochet while he plays with the baby at times - yay!

So, I got my creative juices running and created this neckwarmer today, I wanted it to be a bit textured, so I made the main body ribbed and then made ruffled edges, I think it turned out pretty nice if I can say so myself.

I added 3 buttons for closure, I think that besides being functional they are quite a nice addition.
I like the fact that it can be worn like this too:


A pattern for this neckwarmer will be soon available in my etsy shop, in case you want to make one of this for yourself! :o)

Anyhow, these last few days I made some other stuff, like this embillished kitchen towel (100%cotton flour sac):

And this black scarf (I don't seem to get tired of this pattern!!! LOL):

Oh, and did I mention that I submitted a few of my crochet items to the local fair? I have my fingers crossed for a ribbon! The fair opens to the public on Friday (September 11) and I hope I can go there on that day to check the crafts out. I'll let you guys know soon when I have any news.

Well, that's all for now my friends, have an awesome Monday everyone.
