Crochet In The New Year!

I might not post it online right away, but believe me, I always have something on my hook! Here are a few things that I've been working on. They will be posted in my Etsy shop. If you don't find them, sorry, you're too slow! Better luck next time. I like to try new things and I rarely do the same crochet project more than once.

I have so many patterns saved that I want to get to this year. Check out my free crochet patterns board on Pinterest. Another goal is to make as many projects as I can without buying more yarn. I'm running out of storage! Do you have any crafting goals this year?

1. Autumn Chill Mod Scarf, Pattern by Left In Knots
I finally broke down a couple months ago and tried the Caron Cakes. While I love the feel of this yarn, I think the abrupt color change makes finding a pattern to work with a challenge. Patterns with lots of texture are the key!

2. Neutral Granny Square Scarf, Square Pattern by Penny Davidson
You may have trouble duplicating this square. I edited the original quite a bit to make it smaller. I did join as you go to attach them together. See more about my neutral granny square scarf here.

3. Houndstooth Hat, Pattern at Yarnspirations
I've been searching for a houndstooth hat that I liked and decided to give this one a try. This is actually my second one!

4. Starlet Yoga Socks, Pattern by Lisa Soutendijk
There's a picture of toeless socks floating around Facebook that everyone is loving. Since I've never done anything like this before, I wanted to give them a try. I think I lost little of my vision working on these, this yarn is so thin! I've done doilies before so I don't know why it bothered me so much. Maybe because it was late and I didn't have great lighting? I plan to try some different styles of socks soon!

  4. My favourite is the first scarf - I agree the texture distracts form the change in colour. #handmademonday

  5. Love the cap and the square patch scarf. I am a leftie, so I never go the hang of knitting. I wish I did though.

  11. As much as I love the scarves that you made, it was those heelless booties that really caught my eye. Those would be the perfect gift idea for a dancer, no matter what age. We just bought little toe footies to wear at practice, but these would be great for those cold days at the dance studio on hardwood flooring.
