My Other Passion

I know this is a crochet blog, but I also enjoy making jewelry for myself and as gifts. I put aside my hooks for a day and went into my extensive bead stash and made a few things...

This I call the Sea Spray Pendant and Bracelet. And this....

..... I dont have a name for. If you have a suggestion, post one. :)

I have as much fun making jewelry as I do crocheting but it takes up a lot more room to do between my bead board, my tools and all the beads and findings I have to keep handy. Its great to be able to wear something you made, whether its from yarn or beads.

Ok....back to crochet. :)

Crochet, Away!

Soft and Comfy Slippers

I whipped these up in a few hours last night and this morning. This is one of those patterns I have been trying to fit in between other things. I bought the yarn (Vanna's Choice) earlier in the week and last night finally sat down and started them. Got one and a half done and finished up a short time ago. They are a great slipper and Vanna's is a perfect yarn for them....nice and stretchy with great memory. You use different sized hooks to get different sizes of the slipper....I used a G hook for mine. They fit great and I know they will wash just as well. Find the pattern will have to register with Free in order to download the pattern but I have been registered there for years and its a great site!
