I'm not good at crochet, but if I was, I'd find a way to use this stitch.

My newest creation a Turquoise ring for my friend Lori. I was supposed to make it years ago, so I'm glad she's still interested. She has freakishly small fingers so I hope it fits.

The plug on Mom's Halloween decoration wore clean off. She's been having a hissy fit over the years while it's been out of service. We went to Home Depot for a nice new plug but this was all they could come up with, so I made it work. Now Mom is ecstatic. Which is good because we had an argument over where to put the new bookcase. I know it doesn't look Ideal, but believe me, it's in the best spot.

This cardigan definitely turned out better the second time. Mainly due to using yarn that wasn't blended with bamboo. The pattern is Baby Kina, can be purchased online from Magpie Patterns. This time I used Classic Alpaca that I got for a good price from Trinity Ridge Alpacas Fiber Studio. Sleeves are middle length and I used pretty JHB buttons. Made for Baby Rachel.

I made this as a birthday gift and a thank you for Brenden. I got the idea from IndigoAmethyst 's post on Pinterest. I was staying in the spare bedroom at the time and had limited space, materials and tools. Abu Dhabi doesn't have craft stores, so I had to re-purpose a souvenir frame, found a tube or metal polish and glue. I askedB. for a few coins from his collection. He was excited showing me each one. He had no idea why I wanted them, so he was speechless and almost brought to tears when I showed him the frame. I can't wait to make one for myself.
