Throw, I have crocheted since I was 7 years old (at least my mom tried teaching me) and I taught a dear friend how to crochet. Sadly Jaime passed away and I’ve been using her yarn to make a scrap afghan. It’s extremely colorful much like her spirit. She had an incredible knack for color and mixing patterns. I miss her so much, but looking at the afghan makes me smile and think of my beautiful friend. #throw #inktober2020 #crochet #afghan #Inktober #color #library

Bully for Blue

October 1st is World Day of Bullying Prevention and A Crocheted Simplicity designed a blue hat as a part of the #HatNotHate campaign organized by Lion Brand Yarn in collaboration with Stomp Out Bullying.

I was one of the lucky testers for this pattern. It turned out great, and such an easy pattern to follow.

If you’d like to learn more about the campaign and find out how you can support the cause, you’ll find the info in the blog post link below. If you don’t want to read the post and don’t crochet, simply wear a blue hat on October 1st to help spread awareness!

Amazing Little Friend

I won a random drawing contest, the prize a handmade amigurumi from Forever Stitchin… personalized. If anyone knows me at all, they know how much I love sea turtles. Funny thing I didn’t have a sea turtle or turtle amigurumi and just haven’t gotten around to making one for myself. This one is so special to me as it was made by a good friend. Note the exquisite detailing on the shell, Celtic like my logo. I love this, but now to keep my littles from trying to claim it as their own.

So finally get to post again. I have been really busy trying to get caught up sonce my surgery. My not napping toddler has been testing me too… hence the title. I tested this gorgeous slouch, the Hermosa Slouch and the Hermosa Cowl and Scarf from Laura Maes Crochet. I loved how the contrasting colors really make the pattern pop. Even Stormy Mo approved.
