Hello and welcome to this crochet talk post. I was planning on sharing some recently finished projects, but I am in the middle of two big ones that might take some time. So, I wanted to share some projects I plan on working on in the next month or two and the supplies I plan on using. I promise, the next post will be book related, but I love sharing all of my interests here.
A friend of mine who knits mentioned that she was making socks and then I realized I have never crocheted a pair of socks yet and I wanted to give it a try. I actually went onto youtube and looked up some tutorials and came across The Crochet Crowd who had a blog post and a video following Patons’ pattern. So, I picked up a few supplies to give this project a try. I picked up hopefully enough for 2 pairs, one a gift and one for myself. We shall see how it goes.
- 2 skeins Patons Kroy Socks in Gray Brown Marl
- 2 skeins Patons Kroy Socks in Brown Rose Marl
- Clover Soft Touch 3.25-mm Crochet Hook, never used a hook this small befor.
A bit ago my bag I keep my dice in broke and I realized I needed a new one. I also recently made myself something that needs a bag as a home so when I was at the yarn store I googled drawstring bag crochet and came across this pattern by Wannipa Yunker on KNITCROADDICT. I loved it right away and bought enough yarn to make it a few times, there was a sale on top of it so it worked out perfectly.
- 1 skein Lion Brand Yarns Wool Ease in Gold
- 1 skein Lion Brand Yarns Wool Ease in Denim
- 1 skein Lion Brand Yarns Wool Ease in Wheat
I have been meaning to make another stuffed animal as of late and I decided to make a snoopy for my mother as a gift. I am looking forward to giving it a go. I did end up buying yarn a heavier weight than called for hopefully making it a little bigger than the dimensions listed. Fingers crossed, but either way I think it will be adorable.
- 1 skein Big Twist Soft in Black
- 2 skeins Bg Twist Soft in White
So, there are the next few crochet projects I am planning on working on soon. I am hoping that I can finish all of these in a month or two, but we shall see.
