Colorful Textured Cowl

I'm back! I missed writing this blog so much but life really just got in the way for awhile. Nothing bad happened but life got really busy for awhile. We were making some big changes in our home school life, my littlest had some health issues, and thanks to some success with my Etsy shop, we got to take a bonus trip to Disney World! Anyway, on with the fun...

I bought a skein of Red Heart Soft Deep Sea without a particular project in mind. It was on sale and the color just really struck me. I've had it for several months, but with fulfilling Christmas orders for customers, I just didn't have time to create anything new. Today I finally had time to sit down and play with it and came up with a quick and easy textured cowl. I used a J hook because honestly, I'm impatient and a J hook just gets the job done a little faster than the H or I... Plus with the texture of this, I thought making the stitches a little bigger was a good thing.

Getting Back To It!

I am planning on getting this blog back up and running for the new year. Things have been really crazy around here and the blog fell to the bottom of my to do list for a long time.  But I miss it and I have so much to share!

Some of the plans I have for the future include Cricut tutorials, lots of Crochet patterns, ideas for homemade gifts for Operation Christmas Child boxes, some favorite recipes, reviews of patterns I have purchased, toddler busy bag ideas, Classical Conversations review game ideas, and so much more.

See you in the new year! Have a great Christmas!
