Weekly (ish) Craft Update – October 7, 2014

Well… It’s been a while again I know. I apologize. Life just seems to get away from me this time of year.

But! I have actually managed to sit, get some work done. My problem is, I told myself, no starting anything new, until I finish what I’m working on. Great in theory, but it’s put me a bit behind schedule for Christmas gifts.

Needless to say, I have gotten a few things done.

I did finish my poncho. I love it, and just in time for our temperatures to start dropping for fall.


I have also sat and done some work on the ballerina. She is finally starting to get some definition thanks to being able to get some backstitching done.


Lastly, I did start another portable crochet project, just for hands busy during rehearsals, classes, trips to the park, etc. I think it’s going to be cute, it’s a bag, but what I like about it, is the handles will actually start right above the base, and will attach fully to the side of the bag thanks to a section for each handle of “back loop only” single crochets. So, as the handle climbs, it will pick up each of the open front loops of those stitches. There is also some front loop only stitches for an inside pocket to be built as well. It’s frankly ingenious if you ask me. But, here is the start of that one.


Finally getting my creative vibe back, and I’ve been looking at loads of patterns from lion brand and pattons for quick and easy gift ideas.

Keep smiling everybody!


About craftymomchronicles

Okay, so this is where I am supposed to be witty and cute and tell you how funny and awesome I am to get you to read my blog. Well….. not sure how that is going to work. I am a stay at home mom of two, one is my minime high school student and theater chick, the other is my homeschooled dancing dude, who is momma’s lil man. I get to stay at home and do all this cool stuff thanks to my awesomeness hubby who works his tush off so I can. Of course staying at home isn’t for everybody, and we’ll dive into THAT some day I’m sure, but I love it, and I have my crafts to keep me busy. That is what started this whole thing. Hubby said to me “babe, you should start blogging” and well, here I am. Good luck and enjoy! And yes, I do approve all comments, but don't think I'm censoring everybody. I will let negative ones through as long as everybody plays nice. View all posts by craftymomchronicles
