Crochet Projects and Other Stuff

Happy Sunday all!

I wanted to share a few crochet things I've done in the last week or so. I am trying to branch out and make new things that I've never made before. Here are some things I've tried:

Mug Cozy for my morning coffee

Small Basket

Toddler Headband/Earwarmer

I also tried a new scarf pattern that I got from Sarah at Sarah's Sweethearts. It is called the Surreybelle Scarf and you can find it under her Free Patterns heading.

This scarf can be made in a couple of hours (I love easy, quick patterns like that). I think it would make a lovely afghan too ... I may have to try it.  Thank you, Sarah, for sharing your wonderful patterns  :)

I recently won a giveaway ... have you ever heard of the Sharp Crochet Hook? It was new to me, but I'm so glad I won it. It will make doing the crochet edgings on the flannel baby blankets so much easier, because I won't have to find a hemstitcher or poke holes into the fabric. The hook does all the work for you.

Here is what it looks like:

You can find more information about it at their website here.   Once I give it a try, I'll let you know how it worked for me.

If you want any of the patterns for the projects I posted today, leave me a comment and I'll get it to you.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.


  1. Well done Sandy, they are lovely patterns.
    The mug warmers are great, and I guess those scarves will come in handy this winter..
    Your new hook looks very interesting :))

  2. Love the scarves! I of course like the mug cozy as well. Have a great night sandy :)

  3. Very nice! I'll have to try that scarf pattern!

  4. All of your projects look very nice - I especially like the mug cozy. :)

  5. cute headband! Here's my advice for the tulle. I bought it in the rolls which helps a lot! I cut 2 inch strips and would just tie the ends together. I was able to use my regular h hook. It takes a couple tries to get started in the round, but then it works just fine. I would crochet two identical circles and then crochet them together with the cotton using whatever stitch the pattern called for. I like using a hdc with the tulle. easier to maneuver. Does that help?


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment; I love to hear from you. I will reply directly to your comment right here on my blog.
