I admit it, I'm addicted. When is the meeting?

Here's what I have been working lately. I tried learning knitting and just don't have the patience to learn how to do anything other than knit or purl. So I tried my hand at freehanding a couple items. Here are my designs. The purse ended up being the perfect size for my 6 year old daughter. The inspiration came from this Sak bag. I made it using Caron Simply Soft.

Now this is something I made more for my boyfriend to change his mind about my crocheting. I worked it up really quickly using Lion Brand Microspun in fuschia.

Nix the hats. I decided after a couple of tries that making a floppy brimmed hat is not going to turn out the way I would like. They are nice, yes, but I'll just buy one instead.

Now I've decided to freehand a pair of thong panties out of crochet thread and make a bag similar to the Diana Medium Hobo found at The Sak website. I'm anxious and can't wait to see how they turn out!

Ok, so I made this top by smrfchic from craftster several months ago. I modified it to fit my one year old daughter. I'm so happy with it!!!!

I decided today to crochet a floppy brimmed hat for hanging out in the sun. I may have found one I like, but I'm thinking that I might end up designing one on my own. I'll make a few practice hats to see how they turn out. Here is the first one I'm attempting. Next I might try this one. And finally this only with a longer crown and brim. I just hope that I will be happy with something I find. Talk at ya next time!!!

It's Just The Beginning

I've decided to start this thing up and see how it goes. I'm a 24 year old stay at home mom with soon to be 3 children. Marissa is 6, Ava is 1, and "baby boy" will be here in August. I'm attempting to enjoy the freedom I have left before "baby boy" arrives. Not sure how I'll handle everything, but I will soon find out, eh? I don't know how you guys with 4, 5, 6+ children do it,, but big ups to you. It probably helps to put some distance between each one. LOL. Well, everything happens for a reason.

Feel free to leave any comments, good or bad. I learned to crochet last November and have since become addicted to it. I will post some of my recent projects very soon. Enjoy!!!
