I've gone through a spell of crochet ADD
lately. I've got more projects on my hooks than usual and last night I decided to finish one of them up. I call it the Scrambled Egg Sac because the colorway reminds me of scrambled eggs and it's a sac. I'm so creative! Ha! My Mom gave me one of those cones of Peaches and Creme for Christmas so that's what I used. I still have enough left over to make several dish cloths. The pattern is a freebie from Lion Brand named Market Bag
. It was fairly easy and quick too. I hope to make several of these to use as grocery bags. I'm really pleased with how this pattern came out. The bag is really sturdy and should be able to handle a heavier load. The next target in my sights is the completion of my Boteh Scarf
. I started it using a skein of Luster Sheen I had on hand...a RAOK from Lynlee
many moons ago... but I'm afraid I may have to hunt down another one to finish the scarf. Oh well, I think it would be worth it. The pattern is great and goes pretty fast. It's one of those patterns that only looks
complicated....which I love.
In other news, yesterday was Geof's
5th birthday. I made him a cake from a box and he decorated it himself. He decided he wanted to use his toy cars from the Cars movie and he wanted them to look like they were racing...complete with a wreck. I'd say he did a pretty good job!
