Delighful crochet

Sometimes I sit down with no ideas to see where my hook takes me. Sometimes I work for awhile and nothing comes of it. And other's like this instance, I end up with something I just absolutely love.
I crave the simple things in life and this little dress is exactly my style.

Teen Boy Crochet Sweater

I recently did some work with Ball Hank 'n' Skein.
Her sweater and pattern along with my photography skills.
This thing is gorgeous and my Teen rocked it if I do say so myself.
Not only is it a boy pattern but for the big kids not something you see very often
you should go get the pattern over on ETSY.


Modern Rib Hat

The weather is turning cooler, gearing up for the little bit of Fall that we get here in El Paso. My fingers have been busy these past few weeks....I love it!

Layers in April

Some days you have to be creative.
 Whatever that means to you is exactly what makes art so amazing.
 For me I love to pick up a hook and see where it takes me. 
Sometimes it leads nowhere and sometimes it leads me here.
A little sleeveless sweater for layering. 
I plan to work a pattern up for this soon. 
Just trying to get through these last few weeks of the semester.


Spring Pullover

Ready for Spring? Sarah is. 
She just published the pattern for this reversible spring pullover. Amazing crochet, and I don't think that I could pass this thing up if I saw it hanging in store. Not to mention it couldn't be more perfect for the slowly changing temps this season.
