And for knitting, I modified it just a little. I will update these with examples of them filled out.

Crochet Fever

Lately I have had crochet fever. I will post some photos of my latest projects soon. I found it a bit frustrating going to the yarn store shopping for projects but not remembering what I needed for all the things I am wanting to make. I decided to create a "Crochet Project Planner" to fill out and take with me for the different projects to help organize my shopping. Click the link to download!

Below is an example using "Sea Flower" from Yoshiko Alexanders "Rustic Modern Crochet."
You can see my rough sketch, notes on pattern corrections, a sample of the yarn I am using, and how I circled the yarn weight and filled in the hook information.
The capelet pictured on the cover is on my to crochet list.

Downton anyone?

Easter makes me think of hats. The ladies used to consider a fine hat to be an essential part of their wardrobe. Not so much anymore. It seems to take a special occasion or Derby party to bring out the hats here in southern Indiana. Watching Downton Abbey one can't help but admire the hats and how elegant the ladies look wearing them. Here is a sneak peek at a hat I designed in a Downton frame of mind.

Hocking Hills State Park

What a beautiful place. Hoping to return during other seasons.

In updating my phone, I suffered a fate many bloggers have of late. All my photos on my blog have disappeared. I have them backed up on my computer but it will take a while to rebuild my blog. I have not been paying enough attention to it for some time. Decision time-rebuild, start over, or move on?
***Sweet! I got them back. They were in the "trash can" and all I had to do was click to select all and then the restore button. If this happened to you as well, log in to your google photos, then go to the "More" drop down menu to find "trash." Hope that helps someone else!
